Went back walking today after a week off to rest my Achilles. It was slow going but I managed 3 laps (thank you Cindy!) before the humidity got the best of me. I still need to manage a trip to the weight room at some point in the day for some arm work. Started a new audiobook so that helps. "Death of the Kingfisher" by MC Beaton which is another in the Hamish MacBeth series. I'm reading/listening to them out of order and it seems to be okay. Some series you definately have to read in order but this isn't one of them.
I've been reading 'Forks Over Knives' this week and DD and I watched part of the DVD that goes along with it. Interesting stuff. She was getting grossed out with the scenes from surgeries but the content is very informing. I have been trying to follow the ETL plan which is pretty much exactly what Forks Over Knives says. Whole plant based diet. Occasionally I will slip up and have some animal protein with my family. I don't beat myself up over it and I probably should. The movie has made a pretty big impact on me. DD and I had watched "Food, Inc" a couple of years ago and I still can't eat chicken (and we used to raise them!). I actually gag when people talk about eating chicken or when I see a recipe on SP which has chicken in it. Something in that movie really hit home for me. Perhaps FOK will do the same when I backslide.
