Now that the beautiful weather is here I want to be outside. And now that my daughter is staying with us I have a walking partner. I can only stand 15 minutes thus far but am following the "each day a little further" rule and so far have stuck by it although my hips are screaming in pain.
I have continued cooking "Eat for Life" recipes interspersed with Spark ones and ones from my raw cookbook. My husband has started his inevitable whining. "It all tastes the SAAAAAMMME" Regardless of the fact that I've cooked a very different recipe every single day. I've decided to shut my ears to him. Yesterday he ordered Pizza out as well as had an eggplant parm hero ....He is not 100% committed to this plan like I am. So I have decided to cook to please myself. If he wants to eat what I'm eating, he is welcome to. But he needs to learn to shut his mouth from all the complaints.
He had bloodwork though and his numbers are DRAMATICALLY better. His hemoglobin A1C was down 10 points! HIs cholesterol and lipids are all normal now. HOw does he think that happened? It wasn't by eating eggplant parms!! I know that he does not have the discipline to succeed at this diet and even his narrow escape from death did not enlighten him long term. But I'm not going to let him hold me back or discourage me. I'm doing this. I'm doing it for me. NOthing and NO ONE can stop me!
