I had an amazing night’s sleep last night. Fitbit ranked it as a 79 – which is much higher than any previous nights for the past few weeks. A lot of deep sleep (almost two hours) and over an hour of REM sleep. I am trying to figure out what I did to get that result. It certainly wasn’t exercise – because I pretty much watched football all afternoon/evening. Here is what I ate: smoothie, popcorn, turkey breast, potato salad, stir fry take out. Not the cleanest diet, but better than normal for me. I also drank a lot of water with lemon. It would be fantastic to string two nights of sleep like that together.

Having the holidays fall in the middle of the week this year has been something that I have really enjoyed. Most people are taking both weeks off and that has allowed me to really catch up on things at work. I have almost completely cleaned out my inbox and have crossed a lot of long overdue things off of my to-do list. It feels really good.
I have been eating better. Smoothies. Granola with almond milk. Fruit. Salads. It feels good. I need to drink more water and probably add some supplements. But I am feeling like I am turning a corner.
I made a beautiful prime rib roast on the Trager today – but hardly ate any of it. It just didn’t taste that good. Which is weird. I love meat. But I feel myself craving vegetables and fruits more now. I had two smoothies today. Hopefully my body is telling me something and I am starting to listen.
I did some long overdue reading today and it felt great. Made it feel like I didn’t waste an entire Sunday watching football.
I am looking forward the next few weeks of planning, goal setting, etc.
I am grateful for my solitude which allows me to recharge and reprioritize. Seems very fitting on this day after the winter solstice.
I just watched a very inspirational film called Average Joe on the Raw. About a normal looking guy with some health issues that decided to dramatically change his diet and saw some amazing results in 60 days. I feel very inspired to clean up my diet. It also was nice to see the importance of having help along the journey and connecting with like minded people. I have a feeling that someone is going to come into my life to help inspire me to turn the corner. Maybe several people.
I hired someone to clean my house. It was good. I am feeling very close to being decluttered.
I wasted pretty much the entire weekend just lounging around the house and watching TV. What a waste of a weekend. But at least I did find the inspiration to turn on Gaia on Sunday evening and came across that inspirational film. Raw food. Vitality.
