Waking Up: Went to bed at 11:30pm & got up at 6:00am with the right leg / buttock area of inflammation. Gas issues have subsided, but there was a bathroom incident this morning. I’m hoping that will be the last one.
Chiropractor: Head weights 2X per day (10 min. each) + Denny roll 2X (20 min. each) – morning & evening.
Morning Physical Symptom Check: My normal stiff lower & less mid-back (less than moderate stiffness), turning my head all the way to the left I feel a tiny bit sore. I did get shooting pains from my right hip as I got out of bed. But it subsided as I walked about a minuted. I took my Enbrel shot this morning (normally take 2X per week) & can feel congestion in my nose after I took it (quite mild, but noticeable).
•2 cups frozen blueberries – subbed 1/2 cup blueberries, 1/2 cup strawberries, & the rest in frozen blackberries & raspberries
•3 large bananas, peeled (I use 2)
•4 cups spinach, chopped
• Almond Butter (1 Tbsp) – I added to recipe
• Cinnamon (1 Teaspoon) – I added to recipe
•4 to 6 ounces of filtered water
• Bee Pollen (1 Tablespoon)
Synopsis of Smoothie: Now that’s the stuff! Hands down the BEST smoothie of the bunch. Next time, try with 1 banana as it’s too sweet. Makes 2 1/2 Glass-fulls. After doing this for 7 days, I’ve noticed that my body only really wants around 1 1/2 Glass-fulls. Maybe I’m drinking too fast or maybe I should just drink 1 1/2 Glass-fulls?

Gas & Bloating Issue 2nd Day Test
I now take Metamucil (instead of Konsyl) 1st thing in the morning & 1 hour before dinner. If bloating continues at mid-day and/or when bloating / gas is bad, I will take another dosage. However, it wasn’t bad today except for a few brief times.
Evening inflammation check: Right thigh & right buttocks area with shooting pains when I twist to the left. Stiffness in lower back.
Digestion: Much better than previous days.
Neck Issue Check (Evening): Dull pain in the right area, but I’m able to fully function as normal.
At the end of the night I had to teach WordPress to a new client / organization (WNOCC) at Whole Foods. I wanted to pick up the Good Belly Big Shot but the distributor is all out. I hope to find some tomorrow as I don’t want to skip any days on with my probiotics.
