1 Month Paleo and More..

Well so far I’ve been living a paleo lifestyle for 1 month now. It’s getting easier to maneuver with my food and planning. I honestly haven’t noticed a lot of joint pain decreasing or anything, but I’m also still eating tomatoes and nightshades. I’ve read that you have to eliminate those for awhile too if you have joint and muscle pain. I’m not sure if I can give up tomatoes just yet. I eat them in almost every meal.

I do feel better though. TMI: My bowel movements haven’t been this regular in awhile. I have more energy. I don’t crave sweets or bread nearly as much as I used to. I’ve lost weight and I don’t feel as bloated. I think it can only go up from here.

I know I haven’t talked about it lately, but I am still doing my Feldenkrais and Muscle Activation Technique weekly. I’m still having hip and QL pain, but not to the extent that I was. I’m not sure if it’s because these two things are working, or if it’s because my MAT guy took away pretty much every exercise that I was doing. I wonder if I start doing my strength stuff again if all the pain will come back?

Either way in 2 weeks I will find out if I have a labral tear in my other hip. I’m hoping for the best, but I’ve been through this once and I think I have the strength to do it again if I need to.

There’s a website that has started this thing called 100 Happy Days. I figure it wouldn’t hurt to do it, to remind me how good I do have it and what I am thankful for, and what makes me happy. I decided to post it weekly on here since I have this blog and all. My pictures are in no particular order on what makes me the happiest.  I’ll start posting next week.
