Had a get together with different family members.
This has led to a slight disruption in my eating plan and 1 which I will correct for from today onward.000
My son bought out some sour dough starter which which we made pancakes. He also bought out a very nice sourdough loaf, which was full of different grains.0

In turn, I gave him an introduction to Kefir making and gave him a culture to go home wih
Cheers

I bought bulk quantities of powdered: garlic, ginger and tumeric and made up a mix of 1/3rd each of these.
I have a tablespoon each day of this mix, mixed into a cup of yohurt and with a few shakes of black pepper.
It certainly has taken the edge off my pain in recent weeks and improved my blood pressure.

I have also lost 4.4 pounds after the first week of a weightloss challenge.

I too have a lot of pain from arthritis and also have prescription medications and over the counter. I can not stand or walk more than a couple of minutes without pain in my lower back so that makes it very hard to exercise. I have been doing some of the seated exercise videos on this site just to make sure I am moving some. Still not getting 10 minutes a day most days but trying. That's all any of us can do. emoticon

I have a massive amount of pain-control medication every day(both prescibed and over-the-counter) otherwise I would not even be able to stand.
I have 2 different dosages of 12-hour prescribed pain-killers, I have the high dose in the morning to get me thru the day and a lower dose later on in the afternoon or evening so I can sleep without pain and at least be able to stagger around when I get up in the morning.
The painkiller is called Tramal
Also on an anti-inflammatory called Mobic.

I feel the same way. Every day I say I am going to do better and some days I do but struggle to get even 10 minutes. Arthritis gets in the way and it is hard to do when you are in pain.

I looked it up and it is some kind of sickness like a cold maybe. One description (British slang) said feeling like SH --. Well what ever it is I hope you don't have it and if you do I hope you will be feeling better in a few days. emoticon

It is very nice in the mountains this time of year. I did not see any black bear this trip but they are moving around now after their long winter nap. The female black bear have their cubs with them when they come out of hibernation and you do not want to get in their way if they have cubs with them. They are very protective of the young. It is fun to watch them but at a distance. emoticon

I did see a few deer feeding in our yard along with some grouse. It was a nice trip and I truly enjoy the peace and quite of the cabin. emoticon

We are leaving today for our cabin in the mountains. Can't wait. We have some work to do but I love watching the animals. Deer, turkey, sometimes bear. This is the time of year when they all come out and move around so we are able to see more of them. I also enjoy the long walk up and down the mountain. Hope I have enough air to get to the top this year and hope my legs will make it all the way up. We will see. As the week moves forward it will be easier to make it to the top. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Fishing can be great fun.
Even more so if you catch fish.
The last time for me, was when my offspring took me to a trout farm, not much skill involved but a guaranteed bounty of trout and salmon.
