Sunday Virtual Dinner Partner

I noticed something recently. After a lifetime of not getting enough sleep (6 to 7 hours a night), I finally consistently sleep about 8 hours. Even though I was sleep deprived most of the time, I had to break a habit and work to get better sleep cycles. I feel better.

I ate almonds just before I walked and I didn't have run-away late afternoon appetite today. Little changes can make a real difference. Timing made the difference here.

Sleep: about 8 hours

oatmeal (1/3c before cooked)
1/2c nf cottage cheese, clementine, and 2 tbsp walnuts
1 c black tea
chocolate heaven
white bean and escarole soup with 50% cheese
roasted brussels sprouts
TLC crackers
banana crisps
2 tbsp almonds
turkey burger
sweet potato with New Balance

Totals: 3 veggies and 4 fruits

Movement and Meditation: 1 hour walk in the woods and upper body free weight resistance training. Weather was a little cooler today but still warm for the season. I had company in the woods today. Lots of people, dogs, horses and bicyclers were out. I was happy to get back to resistance training for a second time in a given week. I will do leg and core ball training tomorrow.

Think in the morning. Act in the noon. Eat in the evening. Sleep in the night.
~William Blake

Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.
~William Saroyan

As a well spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.
~Leonardo da Vinci
