When I attend meetings and seminars, I am often faced with the usual heaping tray of doughnuts and pastries. They look scrumptious, and I am sorely tempted by my gut. But my head knows they are empty-calorie foods filled with fat and sugar. And they are lacking in nutrition. Plus, I know they may put me to sleep, instead of keeping me alert.
I like an easy, basic menu, so I don’t have to re-invent the wheel at each meal time. This menu is not for everyone, but it works for me – AND I lost 20 unwanted pounds and gained lots of muscle during the first three months I used it together with my exercise program.
Today, my friend Ken Nelson, dropped me off in town, where I boarded the Peter Pan bus bound from Lenox, Massachusetts, for New York City, where tomorrow I’ll catch a flight to Detroit to visit my sister Jan and kin for a few days. Then, it’s on to California to visit daughters Mary and Laura plus hubbies and grand kids.
It’s amazing how you can rethink your life when you’re on a hospital gurney.
People are amazed when I tell them I’m now living my 80th year. They often say…
“Hey Paul! I don’t know what you’re drinking, but I want some.”
