Hey y’all…I’m back in Cali and just woke up from a one hour drool fest. I figured that I’d just lay on my bed and rest my eyes (famous last words) for a few minutes and next thing I knew sixty plus minutes had passed, I had major drool puddles going on and my body felt like a steam roller had cruised over it! It’s funny to me (though really shouldn’t be anymore) that when I don’t respect my body’s need for quiet and relaxation (especially after long plane rides), it FORCES respect. I think part of it is being in the next phase in terms of not feeling so young and exuberant any more (still silly, random, curious and energetic…just don’t have that “wiggly puppy” thing going on).
I need my rest! I cherish my down time. I can’t push myself with no sleep/food/etc…I just don’t “do” that so well anymore…and it’s a good thing, just something that I’m still getting used to when I forget and my body so forcefully reminds me!
So anyhow, with consistent care and watering my AB system is a well-oiled enthusiasm machine. Without it…it’s a clunker!! Thankfully, I just had a hiccup and will be back on the wagon again. Have had good times eating wise, though I do need to print out my weekly portions chart. Had fresh tofu yesterday (heavenly…), and realized that when I officially move back East, it’ll be a harder staple to come by. Must run to the store to get seafood, yogurt and soy milk (stooped so low as to go to Starbucks for coffee today rather than battling at the supermarket) here shortly.
Hope that this finds you all happy, compliant and taking the time to take time…be well…
