Dr. didn't run cholesterol tests this time. I was hoping to see if it dropped again since I've been strictly following Atkins since Lent began. He decided, though, that last year's numbers were still so good as to not worry about testing again for a few years.
Cool thing was that last year when I went in, he saw my blood pressure and immediately said: "You're not exercising, are you?" This year, when he saw the blood pressure (116/72) he immediately said: "You ARE exercising, aren't you?" Smile!!! Thank you, Pr. Hall for encouraging me to get moving again in a regular workout.
What does a strict Atkins dinner look like for someone on maintenance?
A salad of spinach and lettuce, peppers, onion and cucumber with ranch dressing
Two salmon patties (has to be made with red sockeye) with cocktail sauce
A lo-carb banana muffin (one of Cindi's concoctions) with butter
A serving of chocolate mousse with whipped cream
Who could ask for a more diverse and delicious dinner?
