Sciatica the Dubious Catalyst

Aching Back photo by Dani Simmonds

I’ve blogged about my bout with sciatica. It was an extremely unpleasant and painful time in my life. The pain and discomfort lasted for about a month to a month and a half. When I look back over my bout with sciatica I come to a rather startling conclusion. I think it was caused by… Read More

There’s something to be said about healthy eating. Recently we were hit with an October snowstorm, which caused a power outage. Our outage lasted for 2 ½ days. During that time, the foods in the freezer remained frozen and I felt comfortable that they didn’t spoil. The temperature in the house hovered between 48 and… Read More

inflamed sciatic nerve

In an earlier post I discussed my bout with sciatica pain. I still don’t know what caused the pain, but I know for sure it’s very painful. Some folks suffer with sciatica flare ups for several months and even years. I read in one forum where one guy has been taking drugs for his sciatica… Read More

We Are What We Eat

We Are What We Eat

This is not a profound statement, and I’m sure we all know this by now. Just yesterday while I was at the mall, I met a man that personified the statement. He was in front of me at the check out line. He purchased several hundred dollars worth of workout clothes. He was a personable… Read More

Fido Joins the Band Wagon

Let me start this by stating for the record, “I don’t want a dog.” I made that statement 7 years ago when we got Fido. My daughter wanted a dog and we went to the Animal Rescue Foundation and got our dog. Our dog is the sweetest, silliest, cutest, smartest, dumbest, knowledgeable dog on the… Read More

Week 3 or 4 (?) Update

Calendar

I’ve lost track of time. I’ve been having such a blast with this real food journey that I forgot to update my stats. Oh well, the heck with stats. I know I’ve lost some weight, increased my energy and drink coffee once a week (it’s a Sunday ritual in my house). The convenient one-stop-shopping days… Read More

Beef

Several hours ago Associated Press reported that Tyson has recalled 131,000 pounds of ground beef because it was contaminated with E. Coli. This on the heels of the cantaloupe recall issued by Jensen Farms a week or so ago because of the deadly Listeria bacteria. We’ve had recalls before and there will be more to… Read More

Keeping it Realistic

Keeping it Real

It’s human nature to go overboard. Well, it might not be human nature, but it’s my nature. Knowing that I have this tendency to enjoy too much of a good thing, I have to keep my real food adventure in check. Here’s the Story: My daughter told me late at night that she had invited… Read More
