Clear Skies

Part of me dislikes posting about feeling on the up–inevitably, every time I do, the next few days I crash and burn. BUT.

I feel good, health wise. I’m working out and eating right. No low carb or raw diets, just eating like I used to–lots of fresh fruit, whole grains, a little bit of meat, and low fat dairy. Realizing that my life is not spiraling out of control has brought me a sense of serenity, even though things aren’t exactly working out the way I had planned.

We found a new place, and unfortunately it’s an apartment and not a house. There was not a single house for rent in our new town, and we needed to move this month, preferably before school starts mid-month. Luckily, we can have our dog, no questions asked, and it’s a spacious 3 bedroom with a dishwasher and central air. I’m psyched. I hate washing dishes. As an added bonus, it’s a mere 1 mile from my work. If those bastards hadn’t stolen my bike, I could ride it to work.

I stopped by work yesterday and picked up a book for class. The secretary took us around to see my soon to be office, and I was pleased to have a space of my own. I have to keep reminding myself that this is only a year appointment, and they are as much on probation for me as I am for them. I have a right to decide whether I like the place or not.

I’ve been reading for my classes and I plan to spend this weekend getting together my syllabi so that I won’t have it hovering over me anymore. 

In a way I feel like I don’t deserve this–but I’m trying to just go for the ride.

  1. Hi! After reading your posts you sound a lot like myself. Deprivation of any food group makes me go banana’s when I finally do have it. All diets out there are approaching weight loss from an “outward” focus. They talk about what to eat, what not to eat. When to eat, when not to eat. How much to eat. blah blah blah

    So far I’ve not come across many books that teach about meditative eating. I am practicing this myself. Its really just remaining conscious and centered while you eat. Letting yourself enjoy each chew before moving onto the next chew. Nice and easy and gets all the senses involved. Meals with lots of contrasts in texture, flavor, aroma’s are the best!!

    Much more satisfying.
