Feel 90% better after the epidural. yay! Finally got a decent night's sleep. Start therapy next week.
Off to Costco to load up on organic vegetables & fruit. Is it kiwi season yet?
Sounds good! Take it easy the epidural probably had lidocaine in it and steroids so it will mask the pain rather than cure the problem causing the pain.
-25.2. Did It!
Epidural tomorrow and hopefully I'll feel back to normal. Slowly get back to the gym. The head trainer contacted me and they have a very customized workout for me. I'll also have to do some heavy PT to straighten these nerves out in my neck.
My nurse friend who broke her neck years ago and was in a neck brace for a year, made me buy a Temper-Pedic NECK pillow. It's helped me sleep better/longer from the pain. Not 100% or close to it but it did help. fyi So, I bought another one.
Waiting for my 7am Amazon Fresh delivery and then I will go for a walk. They were out of organic celery again.
Awesome DiAnn! Yes! I am down 16.2 lbs from the 20 day cleanse.
Pumpkins are popping up already. The leafy part.
Made a powerful smoothie yesterday using greens powder, moringa, amla, turmeric, matcha , protein powder, green apple and lots of greens. And a few organic red grapes. Will make again today. Not the best tasting concoction.
Epidural is Wed. Finally. I am so over this. Will be nice to be able to get a decent night's sleep. :)
-24.2. Now a slow steady ride. If I could workout and exercise more it would move a little faster. But that's ok. Should be good as new in a week. :)
I have a lot of pumpkins in the compost pile some I purposely planted an a lot just came up from the seeds of last years pumpkins. I need to dig some compost out today and get ready to turn the pile on Tuesday morning. Today I have been getting the house clean from the 2 wild almost 4 year olds. I cleaned up the pool area this morning, the family room too the dishes are washing the towels from the pool have been washed folded and put away another load of clothes is just ready to fold and put away, while the one in the wash is ready to load in the dryer. I have one last load to get washed and it is almost 11 a.m, so I better get out there and plant! Once I have the wash in order!
"Everybody gets neck and back pain at some point in their lives. Carrying your head around your whole life and sitting slumped in a chair all day will cause muscle tension and pain."
From Dr Mercola's email this morning.
- Research shows gardening provides a number of valuable health benefits, including stress relief, improved brain health, better nutrition, exercise and weight loss
- Gardening counts as moderate-to-high-intensity exercise for children and adults alike, with activities such as digging being classified as high-intensity
- People who engage in community gardening projects have considerably lower body mass index than non-gardeners, suggesting an active lifestyle indeed translates into improved weight management
- Gardening has been shown to decrease depression severity by engaging effortless attention and interrupting rumination. Digging in the soil may affect your mental health by exposing you to beneficial microorganisms
- Research also shows gardening can help improve cognitive function by increasing brain nerve growth factors
used to get his emails. i reckon doing anything outside at some intensity helps!! gardening is relaxing for most people if u have the time & are able to dig & stuff!
Yes I can tell you it is energy intense the hand plowing and the digging have to dig 4 holes today and pot up some other plants as well!
I bought 4 replacement tomato plants and potted them up down in the garden Waiting for the soil to dry and dig up the dead and dying plants. Weight is down 14 lbs slow but sure. I injured my back over the last days digging the compost pile and turning it and also hand plowing the garden and digging holes. Taking today off as i also boxed up all of the books to donate to the library (they accept books on Wednesdays 10-12 ) So I took them in at 10. Now I need boxes to load up the books I am keeping, I want to get the house looking minimalist by the time it goes on the market. Putting the Palm Desert house on the market in September. Weight down a total of 14 lbs slow and steady wins the race right?
14lbs is awesome! WTG!
I get my epidural next week. I can't say enough bad stuff about today's medicine and doctor's offices. pathetic. Who trains these people. One HUGE reason to stay healthy. Will make my 64oz shortly. And a healthy salad the size of my head.
If I had Leslie's patience & energy I'd turn my backyard into a green house. :)
"In January 2009, a study was published in which researchers took 34 different vegetables, juiced them, and then dripped the juice on 8 different cancer cell lines to see what would happen... And some of the vegetable juices had remarkable anti-cancer effects.
The most powerful anti-cancer vegetable in this study was garlic.
Garlic stopped cancer growth completely in all 8 tumor cell lines, which included breast cancer, adult and childhood brain cancer, lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer, and stomach cancer.
The second most powerful anti-cancer vegetable was leeks, which is no surprise because garlic and leeks are in the same vegetable family: the allium family.
The most potent anti-cancer vegetables in this study were mostly from two families: the allium family, which is garlic, onions, and leeks, and the cruciferous family, which includes broccoli, cauliflower, kale, cabbage, collards, Brussels sprouts, bok choy, radishes, even mustard and wasabi.
Two other anti-cancer vegetables are spinach and beet root.
Food is medicine! And if you care about preventing and healing cancer, it makes sense to eat the most potent anti-cancer vegetables every day. ????
goes in every mean green. plus two capsules a day!!
Going to try a new physical therapy place today to see if they can help me with this nerve neck/arm pain. Hard to sleep. Haven't had a decent night's sleep for 9 weeks. Then I go on Wed to see if I get an epidural. Not too crazy about getting that. I need some exercise, getting too stiff. But I shouldn't be lifting much yet.
I have a 25lb box of cat litter. That's about what I've lost. That is heavy. Now, if I could only get back to the gym. Will take a short bike ride today. And will head out soon for a mile walk around the block.
Still haven't decided if the CBD cream helped. lol I'm now trying a few drops by mouth. lol I guess I'm a total stoner now. :) Haven't noticed any pain relief. Need to read more about it. Probably need a higher dose. It's kind of fun/weird going into those places.
Off for my walk then I'll make my 64ozs.
Hello Juicers and feasters taking off today to go to an event weight is at a standstill again. Jealous of DiAnn wish I was going down in weight!
LESLIE! Something's eating our tomatoes. What do I do. gardener won't be back until next week.
Do you know what is eating them? Look for tomato hornworms. Is it the stalk at the base of the plant that could be cutworms, if so take some match sticks out to the garden and poke them in to the soil along the stem and they won't be able to get around the stalk. The only think I have had eat the plants are hornworms and deer because I start mine in the greenhouse and they are too big for the cutworms.
