    Yoga is awesome! If you'd like to try some Yoga exercises at home look for "Yoga for the rest of us" by Peggy Cappy. It's nice and gentle. I'll use it when my sciatica is back talking me and it helps a lot.

    Yes, thanks for the tip, @Catawampous! I was thinking walking home from the studio that I would like to feel this way every day.

    Tomorrow: big leap---two laps around the neighborhood, a 50 min. walk.

    Glad you're finding something you enjoy @Roseygirl1. Youtube has oodles of yoga and stretch videos if you get an urge to do something at home.

    @dasher602014 I found a copy on clearance at Half Price Books on DVD for $1.

    As someone who works at a school, I can tell you that kids, for the most part, will not eat fruit or veggies and many don't even know what to call them. If the meat option looks processed, like chicken nuggets, they will eat that over a piece of baked chicken. Kids don't know what real food is anymore. We have a free breakfast and lunch program and it's incredible to see the wasted food!

    OMG welcome back! I missed your posts! I am glad it was just you trying a different way of eating. I can see the appeal of doing that and trying. Very glad you are back though and with a valuable lesson and a bit of enlightenment on how important you are!

    Nope. @Roseygirl1 , I have looked. No skinny cows in my neck of the woods! Glad to hear from you again. I did a similar silliness.

    You have to understand (or at least hear my excuse), I was away from home for a week, then home for one night and now away from home, babysitting animals for friends, for another week. Tired, needless to say. So...... we came early to get used to the routine and Chinese food was chosen for the first night. My DH (diabetic) was involved in the choosing of dishes so there were a number of 'plain' meat dishes and veggie dishes (I know, I know). He managed quite well but me?

    Well, I am the one trying to understand that I am gluten intolerant not lactose intolerance. I avoided all the breading stuff and ate veggies. But 2 -36 hours later, I have never felt so awful for so long. Terrible evening of pain and no sleep. Still unsettled. I am convinced. NO CHINESE FOOD EVERY AGAIN! A difficult lesson of another kind but the same lesson really. Stick to good, wholesome, home cooked meals. Pizza would have been better but I was lactose intolerant last time they saw me (and for years before that) so they were trying to choose with me in mind.

    Visiting is fraught with peril.

    I need to think every morning about the things *I* need to keep my equilibrium and equanimity so that I can nurture a healthier internal state for my precious body. Things I KNOW help me: outdoor walks, dance classes, massage (heavenly!) and meditation.

    Me too. Walks in nature and dancing are two kinds of exercise that have as much to do with peace and satisfaction as they do with fitness.

    Yay! Glad you're back and back stronger with valuable lessons.

    I've done my share of "testing" on my chosen path of keto. I have a bag of coconut flour sitting in the back of my refrigerator. It is even Keto, so good, yes? NO. It only took me one use of it in making a 1 minute mug cake to find out keto sweets can be just as "addictive" as non keto sweets...for me.

    High 5 to lessons, choices, health and love.

    We're glad you're back!
    Thanks for sharing the experience too. It's all part of the journey. Sometimes we just need to test the water I guess.
    It was a good learning opportunity, therefore an important part of your low carb life.

    Glad you're back! And thank you for sharing your experience...I've had a few glum days of bemoaning my limitations and really wanting sweet things.

    I just want to say I ate a delicious dinner. Zoodles cooked in butter and garlic, and Garlic Knot Chicken Wings. Totally yummy.
