So nice to see the sun and no wind early this am, anyway. Allie had a new experience last night, we left her out of the kennel and she slept upstairs with us, well on her blanket in the hall, or on the mat on my side of the bed. She didnt sleep much, I think would be better if hubby left her down with him till he goes to bed, then bring her up and pull the board across the stairs. We don't want her to have the run of the entire house all night but why wake her up off couch to bring her up was his reasoning. But was only first night and she did okay, just wasn't sure. The kennel won't be going to the trailer so start practising now. lol
She and I went for a nice walk this am, was sunny, cold but noone about, granted 6:50 sunday am?! lol She didn't heal but I didn't try as my back is too tight till we get going, but she didnt pull and listened till the last bit. She is now asleep and I could be lol. Maybe a nap this afternoon? lol
So last night, was diff. for me. I didn't have too much pain in my back till later, but my R hand was so asleep nearly all night off and on. Also, got up to pee and when I sat got a charly horse in my thigh, lol here I am half awake, dog sitting in the doorway watching me, trying not to moan too loud to wake hubby. lol Got back to bed and was still sore, But didn't have muchpain in my toes and foot which was the most sore during the day. OMG my strange body! LOL
Having fish for supper this eve, I won't be able to batter it with anything so will put in tinfoil in oven. Not sure what hubby will want or maybe make his in batter. He is not a fish lover and not in lemon ew. .lol
lunch was going to be a chili but haven't made it yet LOL was going to last night. should do that now eh! maybe change lunches from today to tomorrow. Or make it now and will sit for 3-4 hrs... yea okay.
Off to do that now before hubby gets up and wants to go out for breakfast. I am asking about what is in the omlette not having toast and will be fine. Only 1 day a week and just no wheat as I don't do dairy other than butter and if no toast no need for butter. Getting it figured out! If the omlette isnt suitable will have just eggs.
Oh yea going to make that blackbean, kidney bean, tomato, spices chili - cya

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!
