I have seen the light

Fiber Week…4TH week of the challenge

I had bran flakes for breakfast, for lunch I made myself a can of roasted chickpeas with lots of fresh garlic and chili powder, and for an afternoon snack I had 3 cups of healthy coleslaw.
Let’s just say …
I discovered the secret behind the magic of levitation.
I rose to the occasion.
I discovered a new source of jet propulsion.

I am cleansed and I have seen the light
WHAT THE HELL WAS I THINKING emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

ya gotta love it…not for the faint of heart.

Today I'm staying close to home...
Strength Training and yoga

Enjoy your day...behave. emoticon for stopping by emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

And I want to thank MORTICIAADAMS and OBIESMOM2 for their fantastic advice on how to deal with CANKLES in yesterday's blog.

and WOUBBIE sent me a link to a review of sugarless gummy candy I am sure you will enjoy...I did

    LOL. I've never achieved the ultimate fiber level due to the same problem. My colon takes a lot of fiber and does unspeakable things to it.

I could have warned you specifically about the cabbage. As my friends would tell you, I'm the only person they know of who O.D. on cabbage. It's why I avoid binges because, as my friends point out, binges are about eating massive quantities of candy/cake/cookies/pie/ice cream/etc. Binges are not about eating an entire head of cabbage. I was sick for about 3 days and no one dared smoke or light a match around me. I have the same response to a piece of sugar free candy with sugar alcohols. I usually feel like I'm going to die and everyone wishes I would.

You know, I think you are right about RuPaul Poodle. I actually never considered that dogs could be transvestites but it has given me a new idea for a business venture. Given the opportunity I could have the vast majority of us and our dogs dressed like transvestites. I could be the redneck Vera Wang. Morti Thang.

    Oh, I hear ya' (not literally, thank goodness for both of us!). I get 25 - 50 grams of fiber a day, as SP recommends, but, some days, er, nothing happens. Then, whammo! The next couple of days. I've also found out that if I get a stomach virus with the dreaded runs, I am VERY sensitive to the anti-diarrheal meds. I take a half dose and, yep, the diarrhea stops ... 3 days later, still waiting ...

Oh, and the first time I bought a bag of sugarless candy? Let's just say, I also saw the light. emoticon

    OMG! (I don't say that lightly--in fact, I've only used it on one other occasion.) I laughed so hard I got coffee up my nose! (Ow.) Stop the bran flakes and get the Light Thomas's English Muffins. They don't have the side effects of sugar free gummies or yesterday's menu.

Furthermore, it's way too cold to go topless (just a thought). Thanks to you and Woubbie for making me laugh and laugh and . . .

  OMG Sheryl!!!!!!!!
I should KNOW not to read your blogs on a full bladder!!!!! I'll be right back............ emoticon

Good thing I relieved myself, as I would NEVER have made it through OBIESMOM2 remarks re: the Nude Beaches in Fort Myers. My DH was in the garage and hollered in to me to see if I was all right.......

emoticon once again for making my day lighter......

    I can't stop laughing at this one... levitating, no less! I have been eating lots of fiber for quite a while, and while it does sometimes have an audible effect, once your body is used to it, it is not as bad. However garlic with fiber acts together... well, you can attest to that! LOL... Just PLEASE tell me you didn't do the man thing and lean to one side....

    sounds like the time I went to the grocery on the way to work - I was working a convention, and kind of sleep deprived. My purchases? Prunes and rice cakes.

and the bathroom was UPSTAIRS.

you wanna talk about a QUICK WEIGHT LOSS PLAN emoticon

BTW - yesterday's comment was about changing people's FOCUS
I am sure you do NOT belong on one of the nude beaches in Fort Myers - footprints and nipple drag marks as far as the eye can see

    Ah, fiber! That wonderful stuff that makes sure you never get too far from a loo. I look forward every day to the topic of your blogs. Still laughing about yesterday's topic. Which advice did you decide to take? Will it be the permanently topless look or the 'Which animal will I be today?' Inquiring minds want to know.
