Beautiful morning. I was up at 5:00 AM so I could catch the sunrise. It came earlier than expected and I almost missed it completely. Luckily, by the time I started running, the clouds had cleared and a beautiful moon shined brightly.
I took one hour to walk, hike, and run around outdoors. By the time, the rest of the gang showed up, my adrenalin was flowing. We call ourselves the 'coyotees'! Anyway, I felt pumped and full of energy and kept up with people who normally run circles around me. My point? My system needs a slow start, but once I have had time to 'warm up', those endorphins just flow abundantly.
Is this common for all Type A warriors? Or just me?
I took my genotype diet book to the grocery store yesterday and was able to purchase the 'diamonds.' Lunch consisted of onions, garlic, yellow bell peppers, spinach, white cannelli beans and cheese (peppers and cheese are neutral.)It's such an easy way to cook - just slice and dice, store for later use, and whip it together on top of the stove. Or, in good weather, on top of my grill!
I bought apricots, grapes, limes, lemons, apples, and purple plums. I think it's time once again to type up my checklist, and tape it to the fridge. It's just a weekly checklist which lists each food category and recommended weekly servings. I love the fact that chocolate is rated very highly on the list! Perhaps a solid teaspoon of dark chocolate sprinkled on fruit every day? Sounds good to me!
