Nearly bedtime as I am not getting good sleeps past 4 am lately. I will mention to the naturopath that I a getting hot flashes that are waking me early. Perhaps she can add something to the mix. I go see her tomorrow at noon.
So was in pain off and on awake off and on from 4 am, got up at 6;30 Allie and I went for a walk, she did very well as did I. We went about an hr drive away to visit our friends we have known omg since 1980some, they drive half way we drive half and meet at a small family restuarant. I had lemon grilled chicken and veggies. Found out after they have a gf menu so I and Jon will check that out next time.
Went down to dd this eve with allie, she had a playtime with her sister and dd otther dog nico. Now she is home, tired and happy which is good as she was in her kennel this afternoon and would have wanted to be out and walking.
Back has been pretty good, I brought an ice pack with me for the drive but didnt' need it at all till we were 3/4 way home. Even now at 9 itis sore but manageable. Perhaps the laser at chiro has helped.
So will let you all know what goes on at the naturopath tomorrow. Should be interesting, is she going to eliminate more......... dont think she will add anything back yet. lol
NIGHT all, going to go to bed early and read and hopefully sleep.

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!
