Well, here I am with another sporadic, random update…… Believe it or not, I have at least a dozen draft posts in-progress but haven’t had the casabas to go-live and toss them out. Some of them are personal and I have to be in the right frame of mind; I’ll get there…… BUT that’s not why I’m here this time!
I wanted to give an update on my latest odd event: I woke up vegan-seriously. When did I realize it? When my man came over and had a “where’s the beef” moment! Prior to that I hadn’t noticed because I live alone, cooking and shopping for myself. The last time I recall having a conscious thought about animal products was back in March–I threw out a half gallon of milk that had gone bad. I decided to not buy more until I wanted it and have not wanted it yet. That same day I mixed my last three eggs into the dogs’ food; they had been in my fridge for an unknown period of time and the “best by” date was way, WAY back when. I decided to buy more when I wanted them, but not until. Why? Because I really hate to waste things, especially food. As far as meat products go, I have never been a big consumer so it was normal for me to NOT have much (if any) around the house.
Where am I going with it ~OR~ what’s next? No idea/no clue! What I do know:
1. I feel better.
2. My lab results look better
3. My blood pressure is normalizing & if the trend continues I will be off of BP medications before Thanksgiving. This is miraculous, given that I come from a multi-generational predisposition to malignant hypertension.
4. It’s a lot less expensive eating this way.
I will roll with it and see how it goes, updating as I go along. This post will fall under the heading of “projects in progress”; we know I have no shortage of those! I would love to hear any insight you guys have to share.
