He said “GONE”

Hi Guys,

I have some news. Yesterday I had a followup appointment with my pain management doctor. It went well. This is a visit that I went without that gnawing feeling in my stomach, and for good reason! My doctor used the word gone! He thinks my RSD might be gone!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been weaning off my medicine and I have some symptoms but they don’t last longterm. I’m still working hard and still need my physical therapy but he is very happy  with what he sees.

I am so frekin lucky its scary! I am so grateful! I still need to push more with exercising and working through pain, and on wearing other shoes but I will not stop!

I thank God!

And I am thankful to my amazing family and friends for the amazing support, thoughts, and prayers!

Paleo Reset!!!!

Hey guys,

Over Thanksgiving I found a book by Chris Kresser called Your Personal Paleo Code. Some time ago I was trying a Paleo diet and things got in the way and than I wound up trying something else. However, when I was following Paleo I realized it worked for me. When I looked at  Kresser’s book I became encouraged to really try it and follow through again. I decided after Thanksgiving weekend, on December 1st I started the first step that the book goes over, the Paleo Reset 30 days. I have been staying with it and have been working out and walking daily. I feel more energized and even better, I already lost 12.5 pounds!

I am so excited! The great thing about the diet is it really is more of a lifestyle because it really isn’t depriving and I can eat real food no protein powders or shakes.

I’m going to hold on with all of my might and will get through Christmas and Christmas Eve-when with my family it can be very difficult. But If I can resist that then I will be fine!!

*Happy and Healthy Holidays All!
