I'm sitting here at my computer, it's about 3pm, and I'm thinking about my Thanksgiving meal!
We decided to stay home this year after leaning that the flu was running rampant at my sister-in-laws house yesterday. I have a somewhat weakened immune system....
So instead of driving to Chicago again we are warm and snug as bugs in a rug here at home. Even though I was looking forward to visiting with my husbands family and seeing my daughter...I am just as content to stay home and have turkey and stuffing ...but one snag...I have started a much healthier eating plan since ...... yesterday! Yes it's true...why couldn't I have waited one more day...one more day...what would it have hurt...but the answer to who it could hurt...would be me. So I gave up all those extra calories and I am having salmon, a baked sweet potato and organic broccoli.
I'm really not as miffed as I sound....I have no control over this disease...I am kind of in the limbo stage ...the wait and see how it progresses period...come back in three months and we'll take more blood This approach is so opposite of how we're taught to attack foreign invaders...(cancer cells, in my case)...but I can control what I put in my mouth...so I made my stand... and I feel more empowered . \
One thing that I have not fully embraced is ..."no more dark chocolate"( sugar is supposed to feed cancer cells....)
But can this be really true! Dark chocolate has seen me through many a personal crisis
I think that I'm going to have to do just a little bit more research on CHOCOLATE!!!!!
Have a wonderful Turkey day my friends....!!!!!!!
