Dallas has such a pretty skyline
Because it has so many glass buildings 

First Drink your water.
This much. Every day.

This is an awesome hot sauce recipe I just learned!

Joseph is finally eating Raw Meat!
It took him a good time to come around.
I guess he never read the book 
About cats liking raw meat.



More Instant Pot.
So easy - so fast.

NO - it's not "instant" like a microwave 
From the movie The Fifth Element.
But still faster than a Crock Pot.

Dallas is big. But it is made up of littler cities.
Like Irving. My new job is closer to home.
No more driving 50+ miles each way,
Just to get to work.

Still - this is me.
I am just glad August is here!

raw meat kitteh

This cat love raw meat.

He waits for it.
He loves it!




Too high of BG readings. 
That must change.

"LIKE YESTERDAY."


Daisy give me her full sopport

No buns please.
Not even a little biddy bite.

Blue Skies.
Sorry. No Low Carb Pies.
(Remember that blog? )

This summer is full of changes.
Incredible changes!
I never saw them coming.
And yet - here they are!

less driving day


 
My lovely city


Sugarless deLite - Rick
THE nicest guy in town!

Have you ever noticed that when you are happy, colors are brighter?

Must be all the good Instant Pot Food

Not this. But NEXT, I am trying Short Ribs

Ummm.... still way too many carbs

Lunch out



I planted these! Rather.... I had some help.
It is nice to work in the yard.

It it nice to sit on the fresh laundry.

It is nice to just sit.

So I moved companies from Denton to right down the street.
Well.... its a pretty long street. But still!


It will be good to not have so much paperwork!
And it will be good to be home every day
Soon enough to get something done.

Home Health Nursing is like the Angel Of Music.
Very Strict. Just saying.

business not as usual

It is nice to have some loving

Or maybe they just want food


There is a house in there somewhere!


I keep teaching about carbs and serving size
Every where I go!




So. One more week in the heat.
And I should be golden!

a new job pathway

This is an ad for Ensure.

This is an ad for Glucerna.


This is the carb count for Glucerna (23 carbs)
And for Ensure. (50 carbs)
But I can't imagine WHY any Diabetic should ever drink Glucerna.
I can't imagine why any Diabetic should ever have that many carbs!
This is not even close to the Diabetic Diet that most Dietitians endorse.

Insulin is so inflammatory.
So is Glucose.
And remember, INFLAMMATION is the problem 
In SO MANY disease processes. 

What causes Inflammation? 
We shall see! But I am certain now 
It has much to do with Mast Cells. And Lymph.

This is heart healthy? Really? 
How is that possible?
Remember when Cherrios was in hot water for saying 
That it can lower cholesterol?
Is it a drug?

So I resigned my position as a Home Health Nurse this week.

A co-worker said I had no Integrity.
She was talking about another issue altogether.
And I went home and thought:
By The POWERS, she is right!
I really feel as though I am helping 90% of the people I work with.
I like that ... cuz I know you can't have everything.

But I can't keep placing myself in an environment 
Where people are overtly "in my face"... 
That is not what I signed up for!

And the appetite for carbs is ruining people's health.
I can't keep being a part of that.
That is a lack of integrity.
The your words and actions and beliefs don't match up.

I even switched the cats to no grain, no corn, no soy
NO fillers food... even raw... when they will take it!

Free lunch - compliments of Uber
(They messed up - so they comped me)

And lunch from a friend...
Which I ate every bite!

Back to Food Prep.
The Instant Pot helps so much!

And cooking meals at home.

The good thing about being at a case 12 hours is 
I am inside with air conditioning...
And a clean bathroom...
And a microwave! So I can eat at work.
And take a break in place.

Keep Looking Up!
Cuz That's Where It All Is
As Kidd Kraddick used to say...

Insert Happy Face Here!
