So another day without a workout and I am still making it. Yesterday I had so much energy at work it was ridiculous. I believe that it will only take a week to reset and be ready to hit the treadmill once again. My weight is going up slightly each day, but nothing to alarmed at. The key here is to learn to take it down, relax and just enjoy life.

I have been thinking a lot about my upcoming project of square foot gardening. Having the ability to grow my own organic produce will be a delight next year. I may even start taking some gardening classes this winter to learn more about growing in the Pacific Northwest. I have also thinking about reducing my workout week to just 3 days per week. I am very proud of what I have accomplished so far as to getting into shape, but lately I have been thinking that I may be overdoing it. There have been signs that I must question as to whether it is just aging or is directly related to my workout patterns. I have noticed that I have been getting pimples on my body in the area’s that I just worked, and my libido was decreased slightly. I will speak with my doctor next week about these issues. I have also thinking a great deal about the plant based diet and going back in that direction.

Although I have striven for years to live each moment of my life in the now, I know that I struggle. I believe I need to find more time for meditation. I think that I will start steering my reading time more towards reading about the subject. I think I am going to stop dictating my diet on this blog, and just start eating consciously each day. I know what I can eat and when to eat, so there really is no need to write these things down.

  1. ‘Eating consciously’ has a reverence about it sounds closer to nourishing – listening
    rather than telling your body what it needs … It’s all a journey though isn’t it ? finding out what works and an aim to thrive in second half of life 🙂
