But am still maintaining and not gaining pounds.
I'm going to start being a bit cleaner starting tomorrow. Though, I've not been very UN clean in the last few months.
I was walking at least a mile a day with my family and my dog. I've been unable to walk very far at all at any time for the last few months. Its gotten progressively worse. NOT GOOD. I have horrible pain in my sacral illiac joint~ or just off to the side. So, Every movement I make almost is causing me pain. Sitting, standing, walking, moving all hurt. I can do some walking for a bit on any given day. That night, or the next day? I'm pretty well done. VERY done.
Have had xrays to check for many different issues and am now working on getting OMT (Osteopathic Manipulation Therapy) its a mix of massage and chiropractic therapies. I just wish I could get it every other day. Its crazy. This pain. It could possibly be caused by scar tissue from my bone marrow biopsy last year.
I am mentally and physically exhausted all the time because of the pain and dealing with it. I can deal with pain. I am used to pain all the time. This is above and beyond what I can handle.
My eating has not been perfect. I've allowed corn back into my food, and I need to take it back out for a while. Or just once in a while. Instead of almost daily. Wheat is non existent in my food, as it makes me violently ill now. Daughter ate a roll that she had made with my mom, after being wheat free for two months, and realized just what an allergic reaction feels like. Throat got sore and scratchy and even swollen.
I want to be able to dance without pain again. Walk without pain and really do ANYTHING without pain!!!! My poor dog is feeling very neglected. Walking to the bus stop twice a day is not enough activity for her old bones. She is very lovey and cuddly tho.
I have a fair ammt of veggies and meats on hand~ roasted a turkey this weekend and will have at least one more meal from that. Turkey soup with gluten free dumplings.
I dont really call myself 'primal' anymore because I've made it my own way of life and way of eating and it really seems to be working well.
Its an hour till the kids go to bed. That means its an hour till I can take a shower and go to bed myself! Exhaustion is not my friend.
