My doctor asked if I was in training-and okayed my vegan diet--WOOHOO!!

Monday, June 17, 2013

Today I went for my annual check up with my PCP--he has been my doctor since 2003 and has seen the worst of me mentally and definitely physically. I saw him weekly after my accident happened in 2007 , but in the last couple of years I've only needed to see him once a year-and when I went today I could not have been more pleased(and blessed)! Two elder gentlemen were in the waiting room with me and asked if I was a runner because I really looked like one-granted I was wearing workout clothes because I had walked to the office and had planned to walk back but it still made me feel good! I thanked them and said no I lifted weights and walked and did sprints but was no runner, but they said wonderful job anyway. emoticon

Then when I saw my doctor he told me(his exact words)that I looked amazing and was I in training? I said that I wanted to do a 10K, half marathon or even full marathon next year and he told me to go for it! And I told him I went vegan and he was all for it-he knew of my low carb journey and had okayed it but this one made him really smile. I was grinning all the way to the grocery store on my way home!! emoticon

I think I will celebrate with Jillian Michaels Hard Body Level 2--and with my tofu stir fry as my reward! Happy happy joy joy!

    What better way to reward yourself than a fun workout and a delicious vegan meal! You should be VERY proud. It's such a wonderful compliment to have your doctor notice you are fit. You indeed ARE in training and your health shows it. That is soooo emoticon

    Man.... no Dr. ever said I looked amazing emoticon Well, there was the one, but I'm not sure he was a real doctor. Who practices out of a 78 dodge van?

Well done, you should be proud. :)
