Good Evening, God!
At last! This morning I went for a jog with my loving husband, Kit. I even raced him for the last 50 yards! Kit was so happy. I like to think that if I had realized just how happy it would make him that would have returned to running before now.
On the other hand, God, I am down 15 pounds from my chubby, cheery high. Now I’n at a much better weight for jogging.
It’s a Virtuous Circle! Jogging helps me trim down . . . trimming down helps me jog. Once things are moving the right way they reinforce each other.
But there is that horrible Turn Around Time. It takes so much energy to put on the Breaks and Stop going the Wrong Way. And traveling provides so much in the way of temptations!
Actually, it is very hard to travel and eat “right.” Tonight I had grass-fed beef for dinner — not very much — and kabocha squash, homemade pea salad, cooked chard, and homemade fermented purple sauerkraut. It was a beautiful meal full of Colors! Natural colors . . . not the food dyes of my jello days! Yikes! How awful to dye food to delude us into desiring it.
Worse yet, God, sugar has been added to just about everything! And if I do eat something that doesn’t taste sweet — like bread — then it turns into sugar almost immediately. No wonder most folks in America are running on sugar! Right now I’m off sugar and back to running on fat. The difference is amazing — no cravings — and very little hunger. I’m convinced that is the way You designed us to work.
I’m thankful for all the Paleo People who are trying to bring us back to the old Old Ways! I’m not there yet, but I’m on my way!
