Hi. 
Welcome to my happy hippie misadventures of self discovery in artistry, marriage and motherhood merrily carrying the baggage of mental health and an autoimmune disease. I promise to keep things interesting and almost always look damn good while doing it. BTW my baby ruins lives and you'll hate me for my husband. 
Namaste.

No Doggie Style - Fixing my Broken Back

IMG_3748.JPG

If I am going to track my progress and healing to see what's causing my symptoms/pain I need to do it consistently. If I don't it's how I miss significant triggers and a loss of control sets in. 

Perfect example: crying in the car over my back seizing the last two days and initially connecting it to my singular, hypermodified PiYo workout. Hopeless. Turns out after some thought the culprite was the aggressive, bent over the bed sex. My back had been arched with pressure applied from all angles and I'd allowed my spine out of alignment; all big hell no's when healing an instability based injury. 

Note to self: no more dirty doggie style sex. Trigger: getting hit from behind. 

Got it.

Dairy in modified amounts also doesn't seem to be a problem. We are Papa Murphy's pizza last night to celebrate Valentine's Day so that's for sure a factor in the burning sensation happening in my lumbar spine, pelvic and knees. Always the left side more so than the right. 

I have chicken chili meal prepped, frozen in the basement which I'm continuously craving but have no desire to return to eating meat as of now. It's highly inflammatory and requires major digestive power to process. I just need to take it easy on my body.

Thus far from the full elimination diet we'd been on with the Reset, it feels like today was a bail off the wagon but Nic did say "it's a holiday." In order for us to maintain the level of healthy eating we were functioning at, it requires regular and committed meal prepping with my fuel being first priority above all else in general life circumstances. That is how I survived the Reset and this time I don't have my mom to worry about. Just us. 

What a boring post this is though the name suggests more than is actually offered. Maybe I can juice it up with greater sex detail like that he'd pulled my hair and called me a dirty slut.  

 

Only one of those specifics is true; I'll let you decide which.  

 

For Valentine's Day we went to Orange Leaf for frozen yogurt. They now have dairy free options and I went majority that route. I haven't had nearly any sugar with the exception of some dark chocolate so cookie dough bites were delicious. Ro was pissed he didn't get any freezey treats.
