Day 2 Food Reboot

Waking Up:  Sleep went better, but I still woke up at 4:30 and slept on my sides to compensate my neck issue (I need to tilt my head slightly while on my back to sleep).  My pulled neck is still hanging around, but I have more mobility & less pain than yesterday.  My father gave me some great advice & suggested that I wear a heat pack / heated cloth (as hot as I can stand) & heat for 20 minutes.  Ever since I did that, it’s really helped.
Chiropractor: Started 8:30am.  Did 20 neck stretches & wobble chair.  Got my neck cracked & some of the back.  Then did some slight head resistance movements & bought a reusable heat pad to use throughout the day.

Smoothie Recipe:

  • 3 bananas, peeled
  • 2 cups papaya, cubed (replacing with a kiwi & a pear) – NOTE – may add to diet next week as starch results are not consistent
  • 2 cups wild frozen blueberries (or fresh)
  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach, chopped
  • 3 to 4 ounces of filtered water
Synopsis of Smoothie:  Way too sweet, tastes kind of acidy (maybe that’s the alkaline).  3 bananas – won’t that make me go into sugar-shock?

Lunch Menu:  Salad

  • Swiss Chard (3 leaves)
  • Carrot (1)
  • Sweet Peppers (3)
  • Tomatoes (Handful)
  • Strawberries (Handful)
  • Celery (2 Stalks)
  • Dried Figs (3)
  • Aged Balsamic Vinegar
Prior to meal had a handful of almonds & dried cherries.  I could feel my stomach trying harder to digest.

 

Dinner Menu (Bajio – Chicken Salad):

  • Lettuce
  • Pico De Gallo (3 scoops)
  • Shredded chicken
  • Cooked onion
  • Guacamole
  • Tomatillo Sauce (darker green)
  • Corn (Small Amount)

Evening inflammation check:  Very little right hip, back of right thigh.
Digestion:  Between 11-3:30 I went to the bathroom 4 or 5 times.  The “stuff” is around 1 inch and there are lots of them.
Neck Issue Check (Evening):  Up & down range of motion is good.  Still difficult to move left & right.  I’m hoping overnight it will fix the rest.

    Glad that you found a solution for your neck. Hope this will be good soon.
