Well today started out with a good nights sleep, and sitting up on the side of the bed bringing a lot of pain. Surprisingly I was able to walk quite well which is diff when in such pain but that is a good thing! Gotta find some positives.
We had to be at the hearing aid offices for 10, so cos of pill times I didn't eat and by 11 with the playing with the sounds, the extreme back hurt ( it isn't aching it is sometimes dull sometimes sharp pains) and not eating breakfast, I had a headache, that has continued all day.
But did keep on what I had planned, I wanted to get some house stuff done as we were busy on Sat and yesterday got away from me, so did it anyway. Told hubby my back is so bad I may as well do it and just ice it after. So got what I wanted done.
Went to do some extra stretches and wasn't able to get my upper back on the floor. Something has to be super tight. When I go to chiro I hope she has me booked in to see him before I go on the table as going to say can I show you this, and think I may book another massage and see how it goes. Have had one since my shaking episode.
I am so glad it was sunny today, it sure helped with my mood, but still feel as if I am getting down. I know it is cos I am hungry and don't know what I want or what I have here that isn't frozen. I could never be a vegetarian thats for sure. Got two books from the library one was sugar and gf free but it isnt' what I wanted so can take them back and the next person on the list won't have to wait as long. Tomorrow as it isn't open on mondays.
Okay I am going to figure something out or run to the store for you know what I am craving!!?? a steak! lol Usually want chicken but every once in while I want a steak. lol Hubby is having a left over sausage stirfry. I can have the stirfry I suppose just not that sausage. Sigh sorry but don't want more vegggies, am craving protein. Have all nat. pb but nothing to put it on as even gf bread has sugar! lol
Nuff, I am doing fine, not really feeling any better today. I don't notice the energy surge, no clearer thinking, my arm has been super itchy again today. Really some of the things they say you will notice I don't , same as when I went gf before and paleo. But if I can have more days with less pain fine by me.
Okay gotta go do veggies at least for hubby. Guess doesnt' help that I can't have any sauce so froz. veggies and rice. no butter, no sauce for sweetness. Bah humbug! LOL
HUGS and cya tomorrow!

HI all my spark friends. I forgot to blog last night again! LOL I was half watching idol and partially looking at recipes, saw that it was after 10 said better do fitbit and get to bed. So totally forgot. My blogging streak keeps taking a hit but that's fine, my walking streak is going strong.
So yesterday we went to Ds to drop off a table that dad had said he could have if he didn't have room for it. Well, we were met at the door by Mr Thomas lol HI THERE come on in! lol helps with coats etc. Eva is watching very serious look with Mama. Ds is making supper.
We chat and thomas again sees pepes watch, oh your watch! he says want to wear it, SURE real Boston accent here on the sure, so sweet. lol After a bit he decides we should go to his room and play hide. He hides in this small alcove with blankets and we find him. then he wants pepe to hide behind the door. Tells him you hide, behind door. so pepe says okay and we sit to count, very slowly very clearly to 10. Did a fantastic job. Then ready finding you! he lol goes out of the room, says oh hmmmm where is pepe! Eva did you see pepe! then comes back and looks behind the door says OH I found you! lol and repeat, and repeat with diff hding spots. But We were amazed at the counting and speech, still not great sentences but certainly talking. Eva makes herself understood, a few words but real head shaking... do you want and her entire body shakes yes lol
So we had a great time, I spoke to dil about taking Thomas to the mall, or our house etc. and that come summer we would like to take him tot he trailer overnight as the campground has a ton of stuff for kids. So hopefully by then we have somethign in place. Been too long talking about it and ot doing it, and now he knows our names and is very content around us so thats a start. Granted other grandma and grampa have a trailer too but it is on a lot of land at the ocean. great but also no kids, or other stuff.
So had a great food day yesterday, I haven't deviated from the naturopath reigme at all, but just enjoyed the food and had a good day. Certainly eating way less.
Today being it is only 7:45, I have walked over 2,000 steps and had a nice walk. Allie for the most part was cooperative and had fun. It is cold and a strong north wind but wore my hood, and such and was fine. I enjoyed it today.
I have housework today, and hope to get a fair bit done as we have to go help sil again this sat. Busy month, and next week something everyday it seems. But thats okay I will do fine.
Went to chiro and was okay, machine didnt hurt this time. I am doing good so far today, was able to get out of bed with a bit of stiffness but that is great compared to barely being able to move.
Best go put dads socks on and get him ready so he can go out later. I have a kitchen waiting, and some boxes and stuff to move out of dads cleaning lady's way so she can do laundry, and then more up here. Hopefully I will pace myself at a good rate so as to keep my back happy.
Hope everyone has a super friday, and into the weekend!!! HUGS

Sunday started out with Allie sleeping till 6:30!!! I got 7 hr 17 mins sleep with only waking 9 times! that is great for me. Decided I didn't want to go out for breakfast as we had done lunch yesterday and lunch once this week. So tidyed the dining room, and typed and printed a menu with diff items. There were about 6 and the prices were free, a kiss, a hug and kiss, a huge hug. lol So hubby and I had breakfast at Cindys dining room restuarant. Then hubby had lunch at dads bar... lol dad made hubby a montreal smoked meat sandwich. He had asked hubby the other day. And yesterday when dd was with dad, he told her I am having company for lunch.... your dad is coming down. cute.
Hubby is now doing taxes, not too hard this year I think. He also does sil that is having the problems and will hve to do her and hubbys as they do a biz together. should be interesting as Eric won't be around for sure. Whatever
Today I took allie for 2 good walks, then later did my knee exercises, omg they hurt my back. My back is tender today with a afew sharp pains but when I do the knee stuff it is the same side and makes my back shorten and lengthen OWWWW so had to do a few knee then do bridges to get my back okay. Going to do a few more later on again. Been doing them but not every day and should. So back at it.
Okay Allie sees something as she si out barking. I don't let her bark long as hate when the dog across used to bark. marlo rarely if ever barked so we aren't used to this noise lol
Hope you all have a great day. off to find something diff to do with pork chops. so tired of frying.....

Good monring sparkers! dull and cool in my area of our world. But hey we didn't get the winter storm they forcast at all so no problem with dull. Hoping that if it rains as they now say, it stays warmer so it doesn't freeze as we have an hr drive and then back later this eve.
Going to help sil who is moving as her hubby is screwing around. hubby, other sister and myself going to help her get started figuring and packing.
Well slept well till hubby came to bed at 2:15 I almost always wake up and then dont sleep as well after. 5am had pain in my back and R butt again, but enough to make abeing comfy okay but not the normal pain number. Allie woke at 5;30 again, sigh but at 6 I said okay downstairs dont want to start taking her out at that time, but she only wanted to lay on the couch so I left her.She came back up at 6;45 to go out. early but thats okay it is what I want her to learn, to know to come get me.
Pretty sure I am detoxing the past few days, a few sx that are diff. TMI here lol let's just say I can be stinky! lol
Feeling good though, Know my numbers will help my CAT team, lol like biggest loser lol I pulled a big number ! Trying to figure what to have cos sil is taking sil out for lunch and of course we are going too. I will have to say please no chinese as haven't a clue as to gf, SUGAR free , and dairy in chinese nothing I think. lol I hope she thinks of somewhere I can order soup or salad. I am bringing some greek yog, berries and nuts with me, cos know hubby and sil will stp for something at TIMS nothing there but green tea for me. lol Thats' okay I usually get a green tea.
Well have to go get hubby up as we are leaving in a bit. I have eaten so I could take my supplements, and am now burping garlic ewww. lol
I hpe you all have a good day, ours will be mixed I am sure, tears for sil, but we hope some laughs or at least smiles. Hard to get started on this. her hubby is 65 and had decided that she isnt' fun enough.... dd 19 is having a real problem she is thin to start, and now is way down to barely 100 lbs. wont bein the same room, won't talk to him on phone. nothing she is very religious and besides hurting them she is so angry at the marriage vows being broken as he is with another woman.
So tomorrow i have to help dad find his bank book. totally diff. scenario! LOL

I am the happiest I have been in so long. For any one that has chronic pain or has had bad back pain anytime you will understand. The dog woke me at 5;30 making that vomiting noise. I got out of bed, to see where she was and such and she was okay tiny bit of bile for those worried about Alile LOL but I got back in bed and realized OMG OMG I just plain ole got up. Usually in the night or first time in am, I have to sit up, few deep breaths, stand, wait, hold the door frame and hobble bent over for the first 2 feet or so. I just got up!
Yesterday wasn't a good day for pain in my knee, I nearlly buckled a few times the pain in the back would sort of kink and I felt as if it was going to give. My back wasn't good either. I got frustrated cos hubby was being sympathetic but not helping. Not much good when you say boy oyou aren't walking well but don't offer to walk the dog. Oh well got quiet, he knew something was up, probably knew why. He helped a bit with supper and did take her out. Later I took her to dd to play with her sister and tire her out. So was a good eve and all is fine.
BUT I am really going to make sure I walk, sit, walk not just sit, I am going to remember to do my posture stuff and see how long I can be on a lower than 7 pain scale!!!
Now is it the weather change as I am a barometer, the naturopath regime, the SierraSil or losing 8 lbs. I don't know sure it is a combo but hey!!! For now, in this moment I am so pleased.
Now off to walk around the house lol. I also got my yarn for my spring scarf so may do a bit of that cos I can sit, stand and then stop.
HUGS and I am jumping for joy...Not! lol but definately moving easier!
