Okay let's hope I don't lose this blog. Last one had some written and poof!
Well I really didn't learn anything I didn't know but know that I will have help to get my internal flora regulated. I knew it needed it etc I have learned a lot of natural stuff for past 10 years or more. So nice lady, listened, read, asked pertinent questions and gave good suggestions.
Surprisingly enough she didn't do a food sensitivity testing as she wants my gut fixed first. I agree and what she gave me is plenty for me to learn. lol
Since one of you work in this field, and a few others use naturoapthy I will write what I was given.
No deli meats
preferably grass fed beef ( won't happen right now with the price of all the supplements! LOL)
limit starches to 2 /day
limiat fruit to 2/day
no added sugar ( check ingredient lists)
1 serv of greek yogurt if want /day
no other dairy
2 cups of green leafy veggies and at least 1 cup of other veggies
Nutra sea fish oil ( 48$ bottle!) ( was taking omega 3 but she suggests this kindI used to take it but got too $$ so here we go for now)
vit d 4,000 Iu /day ( I was doing 2,000)
B50 1 day ( was allready)
Glucosamine MSM 1,000 mg 2xday ( was taking but a lower dose and not with MSM)
Biogest 1 every meal
Allisyn 1 3xday
Multi strain probiotic 2 2x day
So okay I bought the last 3 from her for a tune of 83 dollars. I will do all this and try my darndest. So far I haven't eaten cos don't know what to make and am not really hungry. I have all the making for salad and protein and we went and bought GF oats and a hot cereal too.
Hubby well..........he was frustrated that I bought the stuff there, He didn't mind that I had to get it, but that she sells it there makes him feel she is out to make more money. Well I thought it is same price as health food store so more convienent. Bit of a tiff there and the fact that I am willing to take this stuff but hate the dr meds. Well one of these doesn't make my body ill so that I have to take this to counteract that. I found it funny cos he has been to naturopath before.
So a few heated moments were I took my new adjusted hearing aid out! LOL Then he was fine and suggested going to get the fish oil and some oatmeal. anyway will be an experience.
He and dad are at the legion now so is nice and quiet, no tv, no talking while I am trying to do something. Showed her the one book from library and she agreed it was good, the other ( with the charts anjay) she wasn't familiar with. So I go back in 3wks to see how my gut is and pain. said some stuff can go in 3 wks, add diff, and gf for at elast 3 months, then said that probably add curcimim.
One thing she did ask would I get on the table, and on my belly. Well wow pain to lay flat but got there, she pressed where I was commenting on and I said just hurts then BANG one specific spot the sizeof a quarter etc. wow said do it again and yes same. She said that is sciatica then... but figure it is only inflamed around the nerve not the nerve so why it feels diff. anyway offered me a B12 shot I sai NO she said if I say I am good at it... that it has helped a lot with sciatica... I said no not today but will think of it. My son has b12 injections but he isnt afraid of needles. LOL so will see. No idea the cost either.
Well of to finish reading the first part of the book then the recipes. I had chicken out but it is still froz. so hubby can have leftovers, me well I will find something.
So starting all the supplements and such tomorrow along with the 5% challenge.
Best go as I need a sweater on, the wind is bitter and we have drywall missing at the top fof the closet waiting to do this bathroom HAHA. it will get done.
Okay have a great eve and here I go!

Hope you had a good day no matter what your weather was. Here it was dull, dreary, damp and pouring rain which stopped around 4 or so. But depsite that I had a good day. I got some stuff done early, and then decided to go back to bed. Allie passed the test with flying colours!!! lol I left her laying on the couch and went up, she did come to the stairs which we still have blocked off and cried I said to hubby, eeek she is not on couch, so we laid there and listened ( geesh like a baby in their room LOL0 and didn't hear anything. When we came down later she was asleep on couch. GOOD GIRL!!! so after I tidy up better, and make sure things that she may chew are up we are going to leave the kennel door open one night. Not too bad as some nights she goes in herself so hubby will just go up to bed and leave the stairs blocked hope that she will cry in the am if she wakes and gets out. but will see. our other dog wasnt crated this long and we need to get her used to it as we aren't kenneling at the trailer.
Made my naturopathic apointment. march 11 was the earliest. small world again. lol asked me my addy when I said it she said oh I live on that street. ( receptionist not the naturopath) I said well I am the one with the puppy OH I am the one with the weinemar and greyhound LOL too funny. So after 10 years of wanting to go, I made the apt. thanks Anjay! LOL
We went to the veggie and fruit store. got a cantaloupe and bananas, rest was veggies. so much cheaper 5 bags for 21dollars. yes!
Going to go and do a bit, been really trying to alternate do abit, walk a bit, sit a bit. But since supper my back is really sore under my shoulder blades again. strange... lower back yea sore but noticing it up higher. oh well such is life.
think I will go read the new library book anti inflammation diet and recipe book. see what it has to say. new than the last one I got out. now just waiting for the new edition of the first one.
Sure Allie will want a walk in bit, not raining, not too cold so if it isnt slippery and she listens perhaps we can go for a bit. she is now eating mud she finds where the snow metls, am wondering if come spring we have a digger on our hands. I hope not!!! but reemember when we got her she would pull up the grass by the roots well still does under the snow!
Okay enough puter for now. cya HUGS

Hmm thinking and knowing 2 very different things in my book. I woke up this am thinking I KNOW I have to take action.
For some reason I looked up a FB person that I knew years ago, why she came into my head out of the blue no idea. So found her, and she looks like she used to , tad older but the same.
Got me thinking ( yes Caz omg she's thinking again eeek LOL ) I never thought I would be like this at 56. By like this is so unable to move, so sore, and also feeling so much older than I am. Mentally and physically. Now a lot of that is mind cos there are tons of people that are way way worse off than I that I have met here, and in real life, that I have taken care of etc.not all my people that I took care of were elderlly, yes 95% but not all. The young 32 year old bedridden cos of MS, a 53 year old that had a ton of things wrong with her who has since passed. But I wasn't getting morbid, actually it worked the opposite way today.
I thought, everyday I wake up, thank heavens, but not able to stand straight, barely able to get my socks on, let alone the dratted winter boots, and today I thought there has to be something that can be done. SO even though my back and my arthritis may not well lets say won't get better, there are some things that I can do to make it not as bad, and not come as fast. I know some, I don't know others.
One I want to do and have for while but so far noone has been able to help me. My sister in law refuses to incase she gives me a wrong exercise, I myself can only figure out some and then a few have hurt bad. So today I am going to ask my massge guy, who he knows thtat can help me make a home exercises that won't hurt my back. I don't want to go to physio with just the reg. "physio" stuff, I want an exercise routine.. sigh. I am willing help me! LOL
Also today will be a healthy eating day. We have barely any veggies in the house, and today daves the veggie store get their stuff so great timing. Later after I go to massage I will go get veggies. I also made a list of recipes and such. I also had a chat with hubby which was semi productive for me. lol
So today, I hope hubby is better, he slept till noon yesterday and didnt get dressed. Either way I can take myself to massage and the store no problem I can still drive lol I am thinking he will be better as he wants to go see about a diff cell phone electronics may make his belly better LOL
Also I have to stop at the library as the other anti inflammatory book is in and one I am reading is due back.
A full day today, sun, cold wind, pain, tightness but I am able to walk, move and decide to make the right CHOICES. it is all about our CHOICES and that is one think I dont have to think about I KNOW that.
HUGS and as per my progress not perfection team...
JUST for today I will do my best!

Been thinking of my nephew who with his girlfirend has moved to NF, they arrrived yesterday and got to St Johns safe and sound. Now we have a huge storm, so glad they aren't on the ferry, it is a long ride in good weather.... He was offered a great job and huge advancement for a young guy doing his chartered accountants and a great head on his shoulders, so I think they will have a great adventure. She is going to apply to MUN ( opps sorry university there).
So as one of my status said yesterday I was going to clean up my page, since being here forever, I thought clean up my blogs, and comments. Well am nearly done the comments down for over 2,000. But read most of them and made me realize how many friends I have, how many are really there to help me on and achieve this BUT it has to be me. has to be my choices and also cos you have to delete them individually, I got to see my background a loooooot of times! think it started sinking into my grey matter. So last night I planned what I would do today in this regards and even though it started off wrong by friggin habit ( was down putting dads socks on, an just not even thinking too two of his malted balls) oh well thats okay. I still am on track now. Right now drinking my water.
Also I started thinking again after reading the comments, that I am oftentimes too hard on myself. I was up to 200 lbs and am still down to 185 lowest I have gotten was 180 So still have lost, have been drinking my water for over a week now, at least 6 glasses of water and countless weak green tea. I just have to get my food in better order, and also move more without worrying about hurting my back. That is my issue letting pain and also fear of doing the wrong exercise so don't do them. I ask physio but they don't give me a do at home reg. ex. plan....
So this am, told hubby I still want to go to a naturopath and that I wonder how well I would do, for one think you wouldn't help much He said I don't care if you go. I said yea but say she said you are senstiive to potatoes, eggs, stuff that we eat often ( well he eats potatoes I can leave them be) what do you think I will do. I know allready you won't eat most of what I probably should eat, but am I going to be making 2 meals... he said well I can make my own potatoes once in while ( ha we know it will be french fries if anything) He can cook and cooks well but is not inclined to unless we have company. So will see what comes of it. I may call and ask some questions cos if they want current bld work I will wait a bit cos have to get bld work in march and see my GP end march for full yearly.
But that doesnt mean I can't get started now. So going to finish deleting comments, then check my recipes that I have online and going to chose a few and this time do it LOL last time I did all that then ddint follow it. lol Tomorrow we will get veggies and such as I have froz ones now and the truck comes in tomorrow, pending weather I am sure.
So have a good day planned, we have no apointments and as far as I know nowhere to go. Maybe hubby will do dads trim and we can get the bathroom done, or poor guy, go to dd and do her tub caulking again, or put in her new light fixture, or call dil and tell her the cos for what she wants done. Not like he couldn't be busy everywhere... so lets hope he either gets dd new light up or dads bathroom. Or I can dream and say both! but know that isn't going to happen.
Have a great day sparkers and off to get my plan done, healthy eating, a bit of moving and also our snow walks.
Oh btw I took sierrasill last eve, slept still very broken, was awake from 3-after 4 then slept off and on and did wil from 6 or so till 7 when allie started crying. So not sure if it helped but m arms were itching last night. will try it like that again this eve and see.
Cya later buddies!
