03/17: IF, yes, water, yes, mindfulness, yes, PT, no

Spring is ALMOST here. Vernal equinox is the day after tomorrow - at which time I expect to see green shoots breaking through the stubble that passes for my garden.

Same goals as ever: IF, drink more water, do some PT at home, eat mindfully

We socialized ( = went bowling) with a relative and his family at the beginning of this year. Inspired by how he and his wife have slimmed down and the whole family (even the kids, who are elementary school and middle school) seem to be bursting with health and vigor, I've been drifting toward a 'Forks Over Knives' type diet. I don't really understand how his kids get excited about their food and bring their plant-based lunches to school - that doesn't match my memories of the 'marketplace' of lunches you see when opening lunch bags in a room full of school kids at noon!

Eating mindfully has lately been vegan-ish. PT has started to include dreams of doing that at the Y instead of at home.

Kathy,

What do you have planted in your garden? We should have ours set up by now but it got overrun by dollar weed. I haven't been bowling in ages, I guess if I were better, I'd go more often.

My Goals:

1) 100 oz of water per day
2) Be mindful of my eating

Flowers and more flowers! The worst soil I've ever seen so I've been trying to improve it for years. Our town has a mountain of compost at the dump, free for the taking. I've been adding that to the soil every year, hoping to attract worms. I have seen one worm in all my digging! Amazon sells them and local fishermen sell them but I want to see them appear as a sign of soil health.

I watched the family bowl. My arm and my knee are wonky. They picked the one activity that uses the right arm and the left knee - ouch! I hope next year to bowl with them.

'Take Care' is a rom-com on amazon prime (free to stream) about someone who has the exact same injuries I had. Difference: she's a babe (former model in real life) and her love interest is a guy who just sold his software company for six million - otherwise, there's a lot to identify with in that movie! Recommended for anyone who breaks an arm and a leg.

Losing focus: happens to everyone. My sympathies! Who knew a long slog would be so long?
