I didn’t do a report yesterday which was the end of our two week diet period. Vince lost 19 pounds. I lost 10. His blood pressure is getting close to the point where his doctor told him he could reduce his blood pressure meds. I’ve quit taking my blood pressure every day. My blood pressure has never been high. It’s staying in the 110/72 range now so I’m not checking it.
I’ll always believe that genetics plays a huge role in our health. I’m not saying we can drink 30+ Dr. Peppers per week and stay healthy, no matter what our genetics might be but I do think I inherited a lot of healthy genes. My uncle is closing in on 87, does a ton of yard work, drives as far as he wants to go, is still very sharp mentally but he stays active, challenges himself mentally, and gets lots of exercise and is not overweight.
You know Vince and I are working to improve our eating habits. There’s no use tempting fate . . good genes or not.
So . . our dinner tonight.
It’s chicken wings, kale chips and salad.
Get a good close look at those wings! Vince said they’re the best wings I’ve ever made. I probably agree with him and I know they were definitely way less messy than my normal wing recipe.
This is the recipe I used. Even if you aren’t on a low carb diet, you should try these.
