Have any of you seen the documentary "Forks over Knives"? I just watched it last week and it freaked me out a little. I've basically been a vegan for the last week and a half. I got to eat some goodies when we were tasting new items at work, but that's about it. Otherwise nothing but veggies, fruit, and whole grain item. I've managed to add very little oil to anything as well. This is what I ate for lunch- veggie skewers, whole grain brown rice, and a tortilla.

Yum!

(In case anyone is worried, I have been making sure to include sources of protein)

Tonight I'm planning to make sweet potato chili. My sister says its so good you would never even notice it's meatless.

I have lost 3 lb in a week and a half.

Please remember, your health comes first. I know you and your husband have worked hard over the years in maintaining your own business. But there has to be days when he is going to have to carry the load alone. With the upcoming surgery, give yourself time to heal completely. Don't rush it. Let him hire a temporary worker while you heal. I am sure that there are some teenage girls or boys who would love a chance to earn some money towards college. After school hours and all day Saturday. Who knows. That teenager may turn out to be headed for culinary school after they graduate.

Stay with your diet. You are doing so good. Don't worry about your upcoming surgery. We are all here pulling for you. That first pain that sent you to the hospital was just a warning sign. A lot of folks don't even get that. Just the fact that your first biopsy came back benign is a big sign of hope.

Keep up the hard work. We are all pulling for you.
One for you, one for your daughter, and one for DH. We all need an angel to look down on us and keep us safe.

Thank you very much for your comforting words & advice. Thank to all for your continued support as well. Yes, the surgery has been weighing heavy on my mind lately. So glad it's scheduled. Colonoscopy planned for thursday the 11th then surgery, friday the 12th.

Continuing to work out & going to pool helps me stay sane.

Dh seems to think he will be able to handle work ok. Have called back some former workers we have had in the past to help out. Our cafe hours are 8-3, M-F so until school is out, no kids available. It will all work out. Thanks for caring.

Hope all is well with your daughter as well. You take care of yourself to Addie Hope you are feeking good. Let spikeknow he needs to give you some extra TLC now.

If I get some down time in the hospital I will get on DC to keep you all posted.
Thanks again!!

Got in the gym friday for 45 mn. Nothing this weekend, looks like a nice day, maybe a nice long walk later with the dog.

If there is a hill nearby, go up it. Burns more calories. I think the dog will love the walk. Spike give Teddy Bear at least three hours of walking every day.

Good idea, it will make the dog happy too.
I love walking the dogs. They see, to have such a great time. We have another beautiful day here, so I am sure my dogs will get another walk. Good for us all!
