Good afternoon sparkers!!!!
Woke way too early again with a lot of pain in my R back, I swear it is from the way I lay with my leg over and pulling, but when you have done it forever, and wake up like that. I have pillows everywhere. Each time I wake I bring it back in line. And Allie woke early again, and so we were out for a walk by 6:45 but I do enjoy them just not waking that early, after being awake since 4. So went for a good walk, cos I wasn't too bad when we got going. Supposed to rain so thought do it now.
We went to chiro, he put me on the machine, adjusted me, Nucca way no cracking, then said what about laser, I said last time it was painful after. but he used one that wasn't as intense and so far the 2 mins with the laser has seemed to help too. So far 4 hrs later still good. I also asked him to watch me stand for posture as I have been trying to correct it, and he said yes that was good, I wasn't too tall or holding my head too high.
Dropped hubby off at blood donation and went to the store, got the stuff to make salad dressing and a few other things. Came back home, took alile around block, put her in the car and we went to pick him up. Left her in the back ( have a wagon ) and told her to stay and when we came back I figured she would be in the front seat etc. but she was layign down in the back! good girl LOL Her only thing now is to start leaving her in the house alone for a few mins without her kennel. Have to tidy up before we do that not too much temptation.
and for those that wondered, Hubby and Allie have finally made up! LOL they are back to normal again so that is good.
Dad wants to go out for supper, so asked me did I want to have poached haddock again. LOL I said sure, he and hubby will have schnitzel OH yum, and I will have fish and veggies, had my big salad at lunch. Also want to stop and get some dates as forgot when I went.
Okay best go walk around and do a bit of stretching, I can feel my upper back getting tight.
HUGS and have a super day, eve, or night.

NO idea what is changing my pain levels but hey I will take a day with less pain no problem. Yesterday was pure hell today was pretty good. Had a good walk with Allie this am, and a great visit with 2 sparkfriends this afternoon.
Then after they left I took Allie for another walk, went to the store for some chicken and steak, and sat at the puter and sorted a file I had of primal paleo clean recipes into 3 separate ones, side,salad and sauces, desserts, and breakfast ideas. still have the original one that is dinners etc.
Now am making late supper as hubby had lunch at 4. Then he went down and helped dad a bit more. So a good day all around other than he hasn't gotten the taxes done.
Tomorrow am, have to go to chiro, and then he donates blood, and dad has asked us to go for supper as they want schnitzel and I will have poached haddock.
Well off to eat my supper and then go and do some more stretches and take allie for a walk.
HUGS all and hope your day was good too!

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.....
