Where does the time go?

Whew, I can't believe how long it's been since I last posted.

I really have had more to talk about but I just haven't taken the time to actually
put it out there.

Just random, but we are starting a new kitchen floor project that I am so, so,
so excited about!

I can't wait to show you that one.  But it is a big project so it's gonna take a while.

Also, I finished reading this.

Loved it!!

So much so that I have begun the process of making changes in my diet that I think will only make me healthier.

I do know that everyone doesn't agree with the author, but what I read made a lot of sense to me so I am going to give it a chance.  

And PS, I did the low carb thing and lost weight, but I also am on the verge of high cholesterol so I really want to give this option a try.   (It was while I was doing the diet that someone told me to read this book.)

And not that anyone else cares but when I was first diagnosed with high cholesterol,
I exercised, like crazy, I mean 30-45 minutes a day, did it for 6 months until it was time to get my blood checked again and guess what?  It only changed like 10 points.

10 POINTS!!!!!

Yea!  Well, after that, I decided while exercise is good for you, our diet is more important.
And I did go on cholesterol medicine, and was on it for probably 4 years maybe and last year when I went for my physical my numbers were pretty low so he took me off of it.

So, after saying all that I really want to see what my numbers are like after eating a diet of
mostly vegetables and fruits.  I do allow myself red meat twice a week, although if I could I would like to eat it even less.

I mean think about it, if plants were good enough for Adam and Eve, I think they are good enough for me.


Also, I was given two great pieces of furniture to make over.  I love it when my friends get new furniture because they always ask me if I want the old.

And it's old, one piece is over 100 years old.  

(If we heard that once we heard it a thousand times.) Ha! Ha!!!

  1. Great post! Fruits and veggies for me too...no red meat at all but I do eat chicken or fish occasionally.

    Can't wait to see your furniture and new floors!
