Day 20 - almost done!

this is my last full day as a vegan.  I miss lean protein and look forward to getting back to chicken, fish and turkey.  Luckily I live in a town that caters to the sale of organic homegrown formerly live product.  I will keep the healthy habits I've grown used to - the raw fruit and veggies for snacking, the veganaise instead of mayo, and making my own lunches instead of spending outrageous amounts of money for substandard, who knows where it originated, 'food'.

and I want pizza.  yum.

Thanks to all who viewed this and either commented or left me messages.  I will periodically do a new blog about a new challenge and will let my facebook friends know.

Ciao Bellas!

Day 18!

Here I am at day 18.  I had blood work done for a routine doctor's visit coming up on Friday and found that my A1C has dropped a point since last quarter.  my cholesterol levels are still a bit elevated, I thought they'd be much lower.  Well, it only has been 2.5 weeks.

The bead of silicone I laid on the basement floor did not work.  It diverted the water to under the washer/dryer - not to the drain.  I'm looking into an internal sump pump system.  god only knows where I'll get the money - but I cannot live with the stress of a river running through it every time it rains.  send good thoughts for incoming $$!

Remember to write your senator and ask that poison centers are kept in the budget and open to all that use them.  Our emergency rooms would be filled with people who panic when junior eats something that may be dangerous.  Now it's a free phone call to triage the danger - saving taxpayers millions each year.  Ok, I'll jump off the soapbox now.

Talk to you all soon!
