When I stopped exercising, however, all that changed. I was finally able to drink a Vanilla milkshake with no sudden side effects. I could eat bon bons with reckless abandon. I could even spread all kinds of cheese over sandwiches.
I've been exercising again - mostly walking - since early this Summer. And I've had no problem with yogurt or cheese or milk ... until tonight. And it came at a bad time.
Around 6 PM, I stopped at Giant for dinner - a salad and 1/4 lb. of cheddar cheese. From there, it was off to Bethlehem Township for the bi-weekly Board of Commissioners' meeting. About ten minutes into the meeting, I had a sudden urge to use the toilet. No sooner had I done that and returned to my seat, than I had to go again.
After a quick ride home, my first stop was my bathroom. No sooner had I sat down at the computer than I had to go again.
On top of that, I broke out in hives.
I guess this is a sign I must be getting back in shape. To my many detractors, who claim I'm full of shit, you're so right.
I'm in no condition to write about what happened in Bethlehem Township tonight, so you'll have to wait until later today or tomorrow.
If you need me, knock on the can.
