Diet

7AM - Not eating sugar
Yesterday I was invited for supper at John and Mimi's home.  Mimi is a great cook.  I love her food.  I brought wine for supper.  Got a little drunk too!

It was here last April that I decided to change what I eat after John gave me a blood-sugar test. Although my blood-sugar right after that April supper was a high 190, a subsequent test at a doctor's office showed that I did not have diabetes.

Even so, I decided back then to eat as though I had diabetes.  It was attractive to me to eat less wheat, sugar and other high carbohydrate foods.  It was a bit of a challenge for me to stop buying donuts and cookies.  But gradually I stopped eating these sweets.

Anyway, the reason that I am writing about all of this is that I've noticed something interesting about my health lately.  I seem to feel much better.  My fingernails are growing faster, and they are not splitting anymore.  My nails look good too.  They are stronger, clear, without any white spots.

I believe that the biggest change in my diet has been eliminating all of the sugar that I used get from eating donuts, cookies and juice.  I am guessing that sugar was not good for me!

3PM - Five Guys again
Yesterday I made plans to meet John for a bike ride on the beach walk.  We always do the same thing, and I love our routine.

First we talk together inside MsTioga.  Then we bike up to Pacific Beach and the Kona Coffee Shop.  Talk again.  Then bike over to Five Guys Burgers for lunch.

Whatta life!
