Day Three

A bit of a tough day. Not foodwise, that was fine. More about the goodness found in foodland later :)

I was in a lot of pain today. I'm having vicious peripheral neuropathy and muscle and joint pain. Makes it hard to type sometimes...Anyway some days are just rough. I'm now being referred to a neurologist, for an MRI among other things. This has happened before back in 2006, although it wasn't as bad as it is now. I am in pain, frustrated and depressed.

So today Freston wrote about visualization and meditation in Chapter three. I used to meditate religiously. I also did "Vision boards". Funny but it seemed like my life operated a whole lot better then. It's also funny that I set up an altar in my room on the weekend as my meditation space. This is the third morning that I've meditated and it does help. I tmakes me feel more centered and at peace.

This is a photo of my altar. Altars are highly individual and distinct. Someone would look at this and wonder about half the items on here but that's okay, they have meaning for me. I'm only meditating for five minutes in the morning right now but I'll try to slowly up it to 15-20 minutes. That's the goal anyway.

Today I started off my day with 2 oz. of aloe vera juice in water with a good squeeze of lemon. I figure it can't hurt :)

After my aloe vera drink I had 2 gluten free vegan waffles (Maddie is right they ARE far superior to Eggo's!!) with a smear of Earth Balance margarine, a drop of Agave Nectar and a nice mix of fresh raspberries and blueberries. It was an awesome breakfast.

I wasn't that hungry at lunch time. Probably due to pain issues. So I just had a brown rice cake with almond butter, a large glass of vegetable juice and some cherries.

In the afternoon I made my green drink, I described it yesterday but here it is! It!!

By the time I got back from the doctor's and pharmacist and grocery store I wasn't in the mood for cutting up a ton of veggies for a tofu stir fry. So I popped a GF vegan pizza in the oven. Maddie was not very impressed but I liked it. Although it didn't taste much like pizza :)

Now I am off to bed. I know it's only 7:10 pm but the pain is driving me to take my medication and climb into bed. So I'm going to listen...

Good night all!
