A Very Good Week

 Hi folks,  Just checking in to share Sunday, Monday and today's paintings.  And to update my little saga with back pain.

It's been a week since my first visit to the chiropractor and I'm feeling so much better.  He (and his office manager wife) suggested I read "Wheat Belly" by William Davis, M.D.  I was not really in the mood for a lecture about my weight, but I was in so much pain and feeling so lousy that I thought "What the hell?"  So I ordered it on my kindle and just finished it Tuesday night.

From the beginning of the book I could tell that this was going to be an important read for me.  So I started cutting out wheat/gluten from my diet on Friday. I haven't followed the spirt of this new way of eating very well this week as I didn't quite understand how I was supposed to eat, but I have lost 6 pounds and feel much more alert and energetic....not to mention diminishing pain.

Dr. Davis, the author, is a cardiologist and also has a blog.  If you want the Quick and Dirty version of what he proposes, click here.

I will be sticking with it....gluten-free and daily painting!  What a combo...

Ach...I'm having trouble with blogger
 and can't seem to "caption" more than two paintings, or make them larger.

Hope your back does recover well, Cindy.

The barn looks even better here than on FB, for some reason. All 3 images are superlative!
