Happy - I'm glad you had a nice time at the Humane Society event. So nice of them to give everyone recognition for their contributions. As for your questions about avocados, since they are a "healthy" fat, I think they would either have no effect on cholesterol or a good effect. I just looked up the carb info on avocados, and 1 cup of sliced avocado has 12g of carbs combined with the 10g of fiber, that would make it a pretty good food for diabetics (in moderation of course). It's the "in moderation" that always gets me. LOL I was really pleased with my physical therapist. She did a thorough exam of my back issues and after some manipulation to re-align my pelvis which was causing some pinching pain on one side of my back, she gave me some stretches and exercises to do (some I knew about, some were new), and said that rather than repeated PT visits, I'd benefit more from a "back exercise" class that the hospital offers. I go to the first class on Thursday after work. She really gave me hope that if I strengthen my muscles (core and back) I can hope to be pain free and go for walks/hikes like I want to. I hope your PT goes well today and gives you some relief.
Laura - Thanks for the reviews on the movies. I think the movie "Philomena" looks really good. Good for you for doing so well with the pushup challenge and Body Electric workout. Keeping my fingers crossed for your WW weigh-in.
Ceejay - Your car was frozen to the ground?!
I've never heard of that before. I hope you get it out of the parking space when it's time to go home.
