GlennM's Journal, 31 October 2013

Happy Halloween! I am doing Atkins again. Yesterday I ate a bit much, but it was low carb. Atkins works best with low carb and low calorie. I may go swimming in the next few days, I am a bit achy today from arthritis so I may stay in - I can feel the rain on the way and I think I just need rest. The western is 727 pages and is nearing the end of the final edit that should be done in a week or two. I will be doing the 630 page colonial frontier novel next and then this winter I will likely send out all of the first three books. Have a good day everyone, I need to rest.
on diet Atkins  


Rest up Glenn...and Happy Halloween to you too...:O)

Thanks for the good wishes. Her potassium is too low. She is on the telemetry unit. It is more stable now after shots. She needs to stay the weekend, she wants to go home tomorrow, but she may have to stay. They have to get her balanced so that she can go home. My dad took me and then we went out to eat - I got a low-carb salad.

That's interesting about her potassium. My DH had low potassium a couple of years ago, and had to take a supplement... I then made sure he had bananas for lunch and dinner. (Mind you, you would need to eat a barrowful to get a real boost). I hope your mother is as comfortable as possible x

Hi skinny, she is home now. She is not well emotionally, very down and so I can't say anything to make anything better. --- Otherwise, I am OK, I am sticking with low carb and it seems to be working. My goal is to be 215 by the end of May. I am in the 230s now. I must do low carb. I have the bad Atkins breath so I know it is working. I eat salads when out for a meal. Low-carb bread and almond milk are life savers too. Almond milk has nearly no carbs... the unsweetened.

Pleased your mother is home now. I guess she is bound to be a bit low, the weather doesn't help. I am sure you will manage to cheer her up. Well done on the low carb, yuk about the bb though... Sad that when you try and eat healthy, you have to out up with those type of side effects.

Wow, you've been busy with the writing. Hope your mom is better. It's tough, but glad she's home now.
