That’s was my cave girl growl. Scary, right?
For the last thirty days I have been in a Paleo challenge with my Soul Sista and her hubby! The goal is to integrate my eating habits to a more healthy life style. Truthfully, I was 80% Paleo and 20% not so Paleo these past thirty days. Was able to say no to Gluten on some occasions but really, can’t say bye-bye to chocolate ice cream quite yet!
Significant changes? Only three flare days total this month!!! HUGE IMPROVEMENT! I lost a total of 6.5 pounds as well. I am starting to feel the difference in the way my clothes fit, which is always exciting. Energy is up (hey, I left the house on a Sunday…three weeks in a row!) and I am feeling happy once again. Yes, I still have days of pain and days of fatigue but they are less frequent. My last doctor’s appointment went rather well. She did prescribe a new pain medication but after three very unsuccessful attempts of taking it, I will just stick with my eating healthy and using Advil.
And I have to give a shout out to the family and my Soul Sista…without their support, I’d probably be eating a Big Mac right now! I also created a support group on face book called Primal Paleo & Fibromyalgia. We are small group with a common goal of using the paleo lifestyle to help manage our fibromyalgia. Small group thus far but informative and fun!
Next month, it will be all about exercise! I will be reviewing the book I found called Exercise for Fibromyalgia! With it getting way hotter each day here in Hades, I mean, Arizona, walking will become a bit of a chore. It’s a good time to try something new.
