Mt. St. Helens and Shangri-la Day Two

Filed under: Nature/Outdoors, Personal — Dave Persing @ 10:06 pm

I was fully intending on heading out on my new adventure on Monday. However, Carrie and I were inspired Monday morning to take a trip to Mount St. Helens. Carrie had never been to see the mountain although she’s grown up in Washington! We had a wonderful day driving down I-5 and see the gorgeous scenery. Pictures will follow shortly!

Day Two of Shangri-La has been interesting. Yesterday, I took the olive oil and sugar water in the morning and evening. However, both times I either drank the sugar water too quickly or I seem to be somewhat sensitive to it. My blood sugar shot through the roof and then I crashed shortly thereafter. I tried drinking it MUCH more shortly this morning and it still was pretty intense. I decided to try only olive oil this evening and it’s been working great.

My appetite has shrunk quite a bit as well. It’s really sort of weird. Since I don’t have a scale (I’ll be getting one this week), I can’t actually weigh myself to know if it’s working!

More to follow later.

UPDATE:  Added a few pictures of the trip to Mt. St. Helens.   The link to my Flickr set is here.



  1. Boy, this Carrie person must be pretty cool to put up with you for a whole day! 😉 Who is she? 😉 Maybe other readers of yours have never met.

  2. She is pretty cool! Thanks for the suggestion, Toby. I’ll try to remember to be more specific!

    For the record, Carrie is my wonderful, intelligent, patient girlfriend. She’s great.

    I’ll post a picture on Flickr when I have a minute (and if it’s okay with her).
