Waking Up: Went to bed around 10pm-10:30pm last night woke up at 3:30am, went to the bathroom (I have to check my future water intake after 7pm). I got up at 7am.
Morning Physical Symptom Check: Overall stiff & sore body, but not horrible. I’d give it a 3 on a scale of 1-10 (10 is worst). Some inflammation behind right thigh, left hip. Stiff mid-back & sore neck. Range of motion is there, but if I turn my neck to the left too much, I get a dull shooting pain. Lastly, the flatulence continued throughout the night & some in the morning. Alas, beans don’t look good in my future.

Dinner Menu: Tuna Salad Sandwich + Holy Yamoli Sandwich (Food & Thought)
After the bean issues I’ve been having all day, the last thing I wanted was anything near the bean category. After some back & forth with the staff, we found something that I could eat that was raw + part of the NSD. Sandwiches wrapped in collard green leaves. I’ll have to remember this for future lunches.
NOTE: Yams are high in starch. Next time remove this when ordering.
Evening inflammation check: Back of right thigh, right hip & left hip little inflammation. It was noticeable to other people when I went ballroom dancing. However, I was able to dance (and improve throughout the night) all night.
Digestion: Flatulence reduced throughout the day as the cannelloni beans were getting fully digested in my system.
Neck Issue Check (Evening): Almost healed. Only notice when I turn my head to the right. I will continue the head weights / Denny roll tomorrow. I’ve only been using the head weights once (or today none) in the past few days.
NOTE: I am finishing the evening portion of the post around 11:30pm. So the inflammation effects, feeling tired, etc. should be better tomorrow unless the starch in the yams did it in for me.
