Last night we had a going away party for one of our church members who is moving to California. The lady who owns the house we had it at has Wii. So I got to try one out. We did golf, bowling with 100 pins, regular bowling and dance. The dance wore me out with just one dance, but was fun. So was the bowling. I didn't realize how sore one could get standing there throwing that bowling ball. Even that game seems to work your muscles.
I will have to get the DVD out and try dancing with it. I can't afford to get a Wii, but I think I could have fun trying to follow some of those dance DVDs.

(It is still Wednesday for me). I met my friend for lunch today before an appointment downtown. Neither of us have the money to go out to eat anywhere, so I made the lunch for us. I know that he and his wife like Indian food a lot, so I made the Butter Chicken recipe that SparkPeople had. My friend claims he can't eat anything with yogurt in it, but he really liked that Butter Chicken and had two large helpings. I also made brown rice to eat it over and asparagus. I know I went over in everything today, but it was good. I am going to have to try more of the recipes from the site and from some of the lower carb and diabetes cookbooks I have.

This was somewhat like I figured it would be, but she didn't look at my files before recommending some things, like upping my carbs and eating more starchy foods. However, even after she found out I have diabetes she still recommended adding more carbs. She did look at what I wrote down that I have been eating the last couple of weeks, which is in the range of calories that Spark People recommends. She recommends that I raise my minimum to 1400 and do more walking (that hasn't been going on much since I have had a cold for the last month and a half and can't breathe when I am walking, but I will try to do more). Other than that, she just said not to skip meals and gave me some papers and a pedometer. I hope the new one works.
I did go to the Cancer Resource Center to see when the Nutrition classes are going to be there (I think Lisa comes up with more than the hospital dietitians) and got the schedule and the schedule for the Spa days this fall. The next one is a week from today and October's is the day I have my port flush next. They have Reiki, massage, sometimes manicures and different crafts that can be done. It is all for cancer patients, survivors and caretakers and for free. The nutrition classes are to help through cancer treatments and recovery and to keep it at bay after treatments.
