Feeling Better

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

It's taken my body most of 3 days to feel better after that small piece of pound cake (and all it's artificial coloring, flavors . . . and sugar.) If my body's reaction to it is any indication, there is no doubt in my mind (and stomach) about these being true - at least to some degree.

So, I had another appointment with the acupuncturist. Today she targeted my left shoulder . . the one that the Dr and physical therapist said would never get better.

I have to admit that I am always the skeptic . . . I gotta see for myself. As of this moment, the left shoulder is much improved, with range of motion beyond what I've been able to gain in more than 5 years. . . . . but we'll see how it goes next week. (Keeping my fingers crossed)

    Thanks for the update on your acupuncture Cathy.

We don't feed our dog table scrapes, but I still liked the one about "Don't reward yourself with food, your not a dog!" I chuckled at that one emoticon

    I overdid today at Perkins. But was smart enough to stop when I felt full.

    Just had seen a news blurb tonight about a study where lab rats were fed Oreos. Now speaking as someone who really was addicted to Oreos in the past, it was astounding to me to learn that the lab rats brains were studied and the pleasure center lit up like a Christmas tree when they ate Oreos. The same areas of the brain lit up that light up when a cocaine addict is exposed to their substance. Scary!!! Soooo . . . needless to say, this really upped my ante in mindful eating! I haven't eaten an Oreo in years, but now I can say without a doubt that I was addicted to them.

Thanks for this information. I am going to print out this blog, because I like all the advice. My favorite has to be not rewarding myself with a food treat because I'm not a dog! That's right!!

HUGS and glad you're recovering.
