Unique Events for the Day: Found out my pineapple went bad & got mold all around the back side. I’ll have to remember to buy pineapple as I need it & not to store it in the corner of my kitchen. I’m also finding that nuts digest for me whenever I chew thoroughly, have a handful (maybe 2 at the most), or have with other food.
Waking Up: Went to bed at 11:30pm & got up at 6:05am with the right leg / buttock area of inflammation with shooting pains – however it’s getting better. At this point I’ll assume the Metamucil will be fully digested & released today.
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 right I feel a tiny bit sore. Shooting pains tend to happen whenever I get out of bed for an extended period of time or complete the Denny roll. However, this pain goes away after about a minute of walking.
Smoothie Recipe (Banana Smoothie Recipe)
I’m still waiting on my papaya to ripen. I think it’s 4 days & ends up being around 6 or 7. Time to substitute…
•1 banana, peeled
•2 mangos, peeled and pitted
•2 Cups Dinosaur Kale, 1 Cup spinach
• Strawberries (handful)
• Almond Butter (1 Tbsp)
•3 to 4 ounces of filtered water
• Bee Pollen (1 Tbsp)
Synopsis of Smoothie: I tend to find the berry & banana/mango/papaya mix quite well. Next time I’ll try 1 mango as it’s a bit too sweet. Made 2-2 1/2 glassfuls.
Good Belly Update: The Good Belly that contains 20 Billion Probiotics per serving definitely tastes better (I am using the Pomegranate) than the Big Shot. For me, I still want to get back right on the Big Shot as soon as I can.

Evening inflammation check: Right thigh & right buttocks area with shooting pains when I twist. Pain is less than yesterday (3-4 out of 10) with the continuation of shooting pain. Stiffness in lower back – not bad, but noticeable.
Digestion: Gas and bloating are under control. When it comes & goes, I can manage it better.
