Sounds to me like you're due to stop the diabetes medicine. When I did it, my BS spiked a bit here and there, I think that was just my system getting used to doing things on it's on.
I'll have to try giving her carrots. She was eating colcannon puffs with me last night.
I decided that we're all just freaks or something. It never occured to me that someone could sit through FoK and decide the message was "Eat more vegetables". Maybe they should have used to word vegan more often int he movie, cause these people didn't get the message.scooterpie
I figured as much, just wouldn't have expected it to seem so much like someone threw a switch.Yomom
Huh...Never would have expected dogs to get excited about sweet potatoes. Sounds like you have a good vet.AlwaysAgnes
Great find with that video, might be perfect for my DIL. Her and #1 just moved right down the street from #2. So I think #2 is going to be helping her transition. As I mentioned he does Engine2, which does allow for the fake meat products. Which for us, I guess are junk food, but they are still much much healthier than the regular SAD food.
My wife's favorite term to use for me when we are at restaurants an explaining how I wish my meals prepared is Ultra-Vegan. It's kind of funny, she was mad at me last night thinking that I am right. I said, "But honey, how can you be mad at me for THINKING that I am right, when I AM right?"
Your extreme dinner sounds lovely!VegSexy
I did notice that the deep fried tortilla chips said organic. I didn't get too close, cause I knew I would not be able to resist the urge to look at the nutrition label.
The PT session went pretty good. Was a little more of an orientation thing though.Adrienne
I don't know why I haven't checked McDougall on BP already.
I had the impression that most of the people at this event, come to whatever event this little group puts on.nicoles
Well everybody knows that LA is full of hippies, so of course they are all vegans and kool-aid drinkers.
Haha...Reminds me, before last Mothers Day I was out shopping and heard one woman say to her friend, "He was all up in my kool-aid, and didn't even know what flavor it was!". carollynne
Made me glad I had already seen it and drank the kool-aid. There were 4 vegans in the theater, myself, #2 son and two others.
The wife does not deny my fitness level increasing. She still says I'm heading for disaster and that this diet is harming me. Her argument though is that my increased fitness is not fair to her, it's not what she signed up for in our marriage. That I'm leaving her behind. I do feel her pain, I really do. She gets mad if I point out that she could be experiencing the same benefits as me, if she drank the kool-aid. She misses our "hobby" of going out to eat and trying new restaurants. I've told her I will go eat anywhere she wants to. She says she hates going out to eat with me now.
Ok, I have a confession to make. I was not honest with the gym about my medical history. At the very least, I would have had to get a letter from my cardiologist ($90 - $250) visit. They might have even refused my membership and directed me to a rehab center. So I don't tell them, they're off the hook.
I was sitting down with my PT yesterday, going over medical history, injuries, weight-loss. When we go to diet, I explained what I was doing, he asked me about supplements, I said I was only really concerned with vitamin-D and B-12. He put me down as a 10 out of 10, in the diet and nutrition section. I was glad not to have had to debate him.
Haha, so then he asked me about fitness goals. I told him, my first and main goal is to be able to run a mile. He said, easy, we'll have you doing that in 2 weeks. I immediately began re-evaluating my decision to NOT inform them of my heart condition.
We moved to the tread-mill first. He cranked that thing up to 3% incline and 5.5 mph and said I need a quarter mile out of you. Then of course his sadistic side came out and he wanted to TALK, while I'm running UPHILL...both ways! I made it...Switched to walking, and then ran the last 1/10 of a mile. No angina. My legs felt like they were on fire...but my heart was fine.
Then we did weights and stuff. He still thinks the two week goal of running a mile is doable. While I didn't spill the beans about the hear thing. I did tell him that I had only run a mile one or twice in my entire lifetime. Even as a freshman in high school, when I had to do a mile for football, I walked a good portion of it. So we'll see. It's kind of exciting.
I made these last night: http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2009/03/colcannon-puffs.html
I forget who, not sure if it was mentioned in my journal or in one of yours, but that's where I got the recipe. Wow these things are good! I felt very Irish. BTW, the Yorkie-Poo was born on St. Patrick's day 2 years ago. Maybe that's why she liked them.
I hope everyone has a good Saturday!
