Eating plan still going well although I fear that keeping off of refined sugar is driving me to eat more fruit per day than I might ordinarily do. The only reason I'm letting myself get away with that is that it's SUMMER. My garden has fruit I've waited all year for.

Exercise not going quite as well. I racked up some higher step days recently but today I didn't even set foot outside. I was up 'til 8am and am now right back in the clutches of that really awful insomnia that makes me feel otherworldly. And not in a good way.

I tried to keep my spirits up by joining the millions who hit YouTube to view "The Last Lecture" today. I had never heard of Randy Pausch before I heard of his death today. But his lecture is justly famous.

Another person with a terminal illness who is well worth reading is Carla Zilbersmith. I read the SF Chron article about her and I've been reading her blog ever since. Would that I had the optimism, wit and drive these folks have/had.

I understand the low carb thing, but fresh fruit has got to be better than refined sugar. So, yeah, you!

My health thing right now is the blood type diet, which is stupid and makes me unreasonably angry, but seems to be working, so I guess I'm going with it. I ate much chicken and coconut tonight. It was yummy, yummy, and not terribly off the diet. I've been being really good, though. Not that this is all about me, but I thought I'd share.

Glad the regimen is working to your satisfaction. And it sounds like you could have a lot of good Thai and Indian food with chicken and coconut as ingredients.

Strictly speaking, the coconut isn't allowed, but I was at my favorite Thai restaurant and I had my favorite dish with chicken, instead of the pork I prefer, so I count it as a win.
