Last month I wrote about my New Year’s Resolutions to be in better shape. I’ve been going to physical therapy twice a week since January. I’ve been finding it extremely helpful. I’ve been doing a technique called needling. Needling is very similar to acupuncture. It is a technique that uses a “dry” needle inserted through the skin into areas of the muscle. It’s supposed to “reset” the muscles. It can be somewhat painful at first and afterwards but I’ve seen great results. Along with the exercises, I’ve had less pain. It helped my jaw pain significantly. I’ve had the needling done in various muscles.
I’ve also been making smoothies a few times out of the week. They are delicious and filling. For the month of February, I have decided to cut out some sugar intake. I gave up candy, ice cream, and cookies for this month. I want to see if there is an improvement in my energy and overall clarity. Too much sugar also causes me to have a lot of ostomy output. Overall, I think it will be helpful for my body as a whole.
How is your New Year's Resolution going so far?
