Unique Events for the Day: 4 days of USDA organic food bought tonight for week #3 of the diet. Week 3 is said to be the hardest week and based on all the veggies I bought tonight, it’s going to be interesting…
Waking Up: Went to bed at 10:30 & got up at 5:00am with the right leg / buttock area of inflammation with moderate shooting pains. Back stiffness was prevalent throughout entire back plus the feeling of body aches all over. I’ve had this feeling before and this could be as simple as changing my office chair back pillow with the foam support I used from the chiropractor yesterday. I will be using the pillow on the backside of my chair today. Tried to go to bed at 5:30am with a cold pack on my mid-side & shoulder areas which seems to have helped. I will apply a heating pad on the neck today. Got up & out of bed around 6:45am battling the shooting pains down the right leg / buttock area.
Chiropractor: Head weights 2X per day (10 min. morning & evening) + Denny roll 2X in morning & evening (20 min.)
Morning Physical Symptom Check: My normal stiff lower & less mid-back (moderate stiffness).

Synopsis of Meal: The eggplant had a kick and it was a nice change of pace with the curry. Salad was a standard raw meal.
Evening inflammation check: Feeling tired mainly throughout the day. My A.S. was acting up & got progressively better as the day progressed. It took me 2 naps to get things going better. The main issue is the body aches & some shooting pains. I hope to get a better sleep tonight. I’m also hoping to see more out of my body in week #3.
Gas / Bloating Check: Better today than yesterday, but still prevalent. Using fennel helps a lot when it acts up.
