I went to Curves this morning even though I didn't want to. I know that after I exercise, I can face the day much better!

I shoveled our driveway even though the snow was heavy and wet. That gave me 30 minutes of exercise to post at SP! emoticon

I'm proud that I went to the library book sale and didn't spend ALL my money! I didn't bring a bag so I had to carry the books I wanted. That limited the number of books I could buy. Now I should READ them.

I am proud that I knuckle down and find which one and avoid the foods medicines and health and beauty products that cause inflammation in me. I am proud to sport fewer full pain days every month. I am proud of working through the emotional set back that caused me to lash out at other people family and strangers when I am in pain. I am proud to have lost the need to avoid restaurants and other places and no longer feel that I have to complain to any wait staff about commercially prepared foods that hurt me.

I have been researching hidden things in all my foods for awhile. I know when a food or medicine is ineffective through label reading and reading between the lines and have learned to stop filling a prescription in the hopes that some eventual magic pill will take away my pain but not my brain. I can almost guarantee at least 2-5 pain free days each month. My goal seems impossible of no pain any day but I know this is unrealistic. And I have honestly reduced most of my fog and funk condition with healthy –for me- diet, avoiding prescriptions to reduce or stop pain or inflammatory symptoms as they failed me and they add more complications. They actually caused delayed swelling side effects to park a pain deeper or into a different location in me. I ensure nutritional support and a reliable hormonal balancing act through doctors’ care and regular blood work testing to verify comfort and good test numbers even the doctors approve of. I smile take a sack lunch and limit activities and potential ouch events when possible.

The culture shock from what I once was to ‘the me’ I am today is such an extreme difference that most people would rebel against it just as I used to attempt a rebellious attitude to no avail. I have gone natural and hope to recuperate enough good health to get some of my beloved active life back. Fibro is incurable but living with less pain and some days of no pain by doing without the problem foods medicines or over extending energy limits is my mantra. And learning to feel the changes of effective or just plain pain causing things has helped me find personal pride.

If you have any questions of these successful steps please send me an email.


The greatest love story is your own.
If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win.
You are the happiness master of your own mind.
Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good.
Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness.
I may not recognize the significance until some time later.
Is my resistance to change really that strong?
Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson;
Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;

I walked both my dogs (border collie & hound) without losing either one or getting wrapped up in their leashes!

We went out to dinner. I ordered a gluten free pizza, ate half and brought the rest home. I was satisfied with only half of it, and was able to recognize that eating any more of it was unnecessary and would have made me uncomfortable. And now I have lunch for tomorrow! Or maybe breakfast... (and to clarify, it was pizza with a red pepper reduction sauce, sauteed spinach and mushrooms, and goat cheese. Not too bad in the calorie department!)

One day at a time...

Remembered to get new pads for my TENS unit and avoided buying chocolate, despite the giant Valentines Day chocolate/candy displays down every freaking isle in the grocery store!

Off topic kinda, but I am also proud of my big sister and I because after almost 30 years of trying we FINALLY got through to our Daddy, and he has decided to quit smoking!! Mostly I'm just proud of him, cant be even close to easy after 40+ years of it!

I went to Curves for the second time. I plan to go two or three times a week. It only takes 1/2 hour. And I'm only 15 minutes from the building.
