Here and Now

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

I had a pretty calm day...until my marital tornado arrived home...decimating my calm.
I won't go into the details about that...No one wants to hear about people like that.

My daughter has been away for three days visiting a friend. So there is no mediator.

My good news is that I weighed myself today. For several weeks (since I"ve gone off the Dr Fuhrman diet...My weight had crept up to 203. Well today --after not weighing myself for several days..I weighed 199. YAY back in onederland. I haven't had much of an appetite...I have been eating things that to the general public, are healthy...but which Dr. Fuhrman calls "toxic" I've been making my won yogurt....out of soy some things from the good doctor have remained. But for lunch today I had some low fat cottage cheese with fresh pineapple.
Cottage cheese is a no no.

One thing I know is that I need to have more veggies...I'm eating a lot of fruit. I should really slip some veggies into my smoothies. Maybe I'll try that tomorrow. There were some of the people on the Eat to Live website who had just decided thatthey would make a few changes at a time...and not keeping up with changes that they cannot do forever...So,I learned some stuff from ETL and I can pretty much stick to it...without making the elaborate dishes that no one really liked.I can eat's really rare when I eat something and say "eeewww" So when I have to cook for my family a big no no..(like the BLT wrap I had the day before yesterday.) I will eat a small portion of it....and I even skipped the dessert...and move on.

I had an MRI of my neck. I am very curious about what it says. It's been quite a while since my last one....I know my pain and mobility have really been maybe I will get the results tomorrow. So it's atypical day...Me home alone with the cat.Dodging the daggers my husband throws and getting ready for bed between 6 and 7:00

I wish all of you a restful sleep.

    That is great you can still get some things from the ETL program. Most people have no problem eating lots of fruits, but fall on their face with veggies. Nothing beats a pan of roasted root veggies you can eat on for a week. You pre tosses them with a bit of oil and spices and that makes the taste really pop (Chef Meg has a recipe like that) Mom occasionally makes them for me as I don't cook. Spinach or kale added to your smoothies would really boost the nutritional content.
    Hoping your MRI shows something they can fix or deal with..
    I think most of us in Sparkland would love to get together and give that husband of yours a good thumping!! A B*tch slap at the very least!
    Take care of you and stay out of the monster's way as much as you can..

    Throw just one dagger back! Just one. And I am happy that Dr. Fuhrman has helped you ETL better, and that you can take what you learned there and incorporate it without alienating your entire family at the dinner table.

    And congrats on seeing ONEderland again. I am still up 10 pounds and it makes me crazy, but I haven't been true to myself in the past month or two either. I've been losing steam, I guess you can say.

    I will pray that your MRI comes back with an issue they can fix with relatively minor changes. No surgery, just maybe some alignment stuff. (I know that I am downplaying it, but I hate to hear about your neck hurting because that is my major source of pain and no one has anything to tell me about how to fix it besides handing me yet another pill.)

    Best of luck! Please let us know.
