I have not been abducted by aliens and subjected to strange cosmological experiments. (This is a running joke between Sister Sally and me–we text each other pictures when we wake up in the morning with especially bad hair, and it’s our theory that aliens are responsible. Either that or we’re sleeping in a head-stand.)
No, the truth is, sometimes time just gets away from me, and this is one of those weeks. Monday, I had a doctor’s appointment, Tuesday, a blood test. Nothing to be alarmed about–I’m having my hormone levels tested in order to take the bioidentical kind I talked about recently. Once I have anything to report, I will. I suspect that millions of women–and men, too–suffer from the same problem. I refuse to take synthetic hormones–I’m not sure responsible doctors even prescribe them anymore. Bioidenticals are completely natural, made from soy products and similar things, and instead of supplementing, they actually replace the natural hormones our bodies are deficient in. That’s GOT to be good, right? I’ll keep you updated.
The book continues to unfold, albeit more slowly than I’d like. Every word is chiseled directly into my heart, and sometimes that is painful.
I don’t know if I reported my results following the three weeks on the Food Lovers induction program or not, but one way or another, here it is. I lost four pounds and some five-and-a-half inches, and while that might not sound like a lot, I’m thrilled. Why? Because I can LIVE with this. Today, for example, I had shrimp, a hard-boiled egg, and avocado, with a drizzle of light Catalina dressing–and it was great!! My fast carb—tadah!!!–was a glass of red wine. What’s not to be happy about???
I will choose this week’s winner this afternoon, Jenni will notify her (or him) and tomorrow I’ll make the announcement, along with a new contest.
I’m off to Storyland. Be well, be blessed, and be kind.
