We came. We saw. We ate.
The rest of my family are all omnivores, so I will spare you the photo of the Thanksgiving table. But it is really special to me to celebrate the holidays with my 92 yr old Grandma….how cute is she? We did all of our family photos before the food coma set in.
Had to work off all of the Field Roast I devoured with a hike up the Makapuu lighthouse trail. Seriously, this view is the only thing that keeps me motivated to exercise.
I’m still in a lot of pain after my car accident at the beginning of November but literally could not stomach taking the pharmaceutical pain meds any longer. This kit I put together (pictured above), along with both cold and hot packs, chiropractic care, acupuncture and massage has given me some much-needed relief. The ProTrauma can be used instead of Ibuprofen for inflammation and my experience has been that it is much gentler on my stomach. Golden Tiger is a topical pain relief cream similar to BioFreeze. I prefer the Golden Tiger since I find that my skin is less sensitive to it and the pain relieving properties are more effective for me. I gently roll my neck out with the massage stick, no more than 5 minutes at a time, then apply the Ancient Minerals magnesium oil spray. After I stopped taking the prescription muscle relaxers, magnesium is my new best friend! I leave the magnesium oil spray on my skin for about 20 minutes, prepare a beverage with the Mag Relax powdered magnesium, take a deep breath and try to relax.
I’ve also bumped up my intake of green smoothies and added tons of pineapple for the bromelain and extra extra chia for the omega-3’s.

Fingers crossed that I will be feeling well enough to film and edit some new videos for you all soon!
