hi all, just wanted to say sorry for not being here a bit.. had some major family issues and hopefully all is resolved. i noticed we have new members. that is awsome. so glad to have you aboard. i have to also say that i graduate from my ornish program this week. a whole year and what changes!!!! i had my graduation stress test done and that is also amazing. just over 9 minutes. they said that is the minutes for an active 51 year old. i have short legs so with the incline and the speed... i was whooped.. but i did the 9 and i am very pleased. going for blood work this week too. for those of you that don't know... the ornish program has a 'self directed' night. all this entails is an hour of yoga and stress management and then we eat an ornish meal with a mini chat session. it is great and fun. in the spring i was asked to cook for this group. i am not a chef or cook, self taught in every way. and the love of kitchen gadgets helps. but that is going so well. i get people coming because they hear the food is pretty good.. hahahahhahaha... so i try to surprise them with new stuff that is healthy and tasty. but i will try to post some of those recipes here too.... if anyone has any questions,,, please post them. if i or another member doesn't know it quick enough, i will get the answer for you.... another thing.. when i started ornish, i was on at least 3 meds.. off all of them now. yea!!!
