I’m up to recipe number 78 with 12 more close to completion for the new book; that’s more than half way home for the food and menu part. (Yeah!) I can’t share any of it until after the book comes out, except with my recipe testers, who agreed to keep everything confidential. (All very cloak-and-dagger-ish, isn’t it?) My fantastic team of volunteer testers are doing a great job, by the way. I wouldn’t be progressing this quickly without their feedback.
I was afraid that I had exhausted my creativity with Carb Wars, but I get up every morning excited and eager to try some new idea and I usually work late every night. Except for frequent trips to the grocery store, I haven’t taken many breaks. Next week, however, I’m going to L A for an appointment with the fibromyalgia specialist, Dr. St. Amand. I have been on his protocol for over a year now without seeing much difference, but one of my most annoying symptoms suddenly vanished in December and I have had a few good days in the last few months. I won’t know for sure if I have made any progress until I see the doctor, although the fact that I have been able to keep up this schedule as long as I have makes me think the guaifenesin must be doing something. He will be able to tell very quickly if I am truly improving. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I’ll get good news!
