Starting over again, yet again

Its been ages since I posted. My health has just been so awful. I feel like I am in constant intense pain and barely able to move most days. I am so tired of living this way so I am going to make some health changes for the upcoming year. One of the biggest is that I am going back on the low carb diet. I really need to lose weight but that's not my reasoning for choosing this diet. When I am on the low carb diet after about 4 days or so, I am almost totally pain free. All the swelling in my hands, feet and legs is gone. The only place that hurts is my lower back and hip but they are way more bearable.  And since its a new year, my insurance starts again so I can go to the chiropractor again for 12 visits. I am going to go once a week and then when those visits are done then I am going to go every 2 weeks since I will have to pay myself.

So today is the first day for me even though its not the new year yet.  So far I have only had water to drink. I didn't really have time for breakfast so I snacked on string cheese. Lunch is cheeseburger salad.

Cheeseburger Salad
3/4 cup cooked crumbled hamburger
baby spinach
shredded cheese
ranch dressing

I didn't put amounts because it really depends on how much of each you want in there. I don't like lettuce so I prefer to put baby spinach in my salad and I like a lot of tomato and cucumber. Then I sprinkled shredded cheddar cheese over the whole thing and add a dollop of dressing. Yummy and filling since it has meat and veggies.

Say a prayer for me that I can stick with this considering how much it helps my health.
