Lactose intolerant/Chocolate and sweets go to ....

Who would ever thunk it? I could always drink milk and milk products without any problems. And now, oh the stomach gas and well.. more than that. I switched to lactose free like the dietician said to try, no problems. Fine, be that way. Price of MY milk just went up. LOL
Now I'm here fighting with protein drinks. Why oh why does society think that every obese(fat,full figure ,overweight, whatever 'they' want to call it) likes sweet drinks and chocolate? Guess what? I DON'T!! If I have to sip on something for awhile, just give me something plain. Like vanilla, or fruity, or no flavor I can put into a favorite drink of mine. Heck, you can do it with everything else.
Take Sugar Free Carnation Instant Breakfast. The Dieticains said it was also a good way to get in protien. Ok, no problem. I went to 4, yes, 4 stores. All had CHOCOLATE!
Now I know I'm not the only 'big person' out there who doesn't get off on that flavor. Lizz was cool and looked it up for me on her blackberry and she said she found Sugarfree Vanilla. Ok, that's good. I'll just look it up and find out where it's sold.
I just finished my supper of oatmeal. I like oatmeal. My pouch likes oatmeal. (And it's not chocolate! LOL )
Ok, enough of that ,Ruthie.
Big day today. I drove the furthest. Went to Wishard Hospital at IUPUI to meet Mom for her ALS Clinic. Lizz went with me. Lot of walking! Short of breath! Pulse rate rapid, but darnit I did it! Then found out my pedometer was on wrong and didn't get any of that calculated. What could I do? I fixed it and went on.
Whew was the rain and floodings crazy at 7:30 am this morning! Took Lizz and I an hour and 15 min to get there from here. Lizz learned alot and took some good notes.
We came home and I crashed. I slept for 2 hours.
Tomorrow I'm going to venture out and get me a pool. Not a wading pool, not one with a filter. But one big enough for me to sit in, and lay down in and also be able to move my legs and arms in the water so I can just feel them exercising in that fashion. I have the perfect area in my yard. Shade and privacy. I'm going to make it my private 'oasis'. Ahhhh.... peace and serenity... More baby steps!
