It is a relief to get back to the mindless logging of bike rides on this site. During the summer of 2010 (hereafter referred to only as the Darkness) I ventured into psycho-analysis, just plain psycho-ness, religion, politics, dental hygiene, viking revenge fantasies, role-playing scenarios, geopolitics, practical and theoretical lexicography, and H8ing on most anyone and anything that stepped into my jaundiced cross-hairs.
Now? Things are much better under my new regiment, I mean regime, no-regimen actually. Much better. So let's recap what is going on around here.
The 86 list
Sugar in all its evil forms
Flour/Wheat (occasional slice of Ezekiel 4:9 is the exception)
various and assorted non-supportive individuals
3 squares a day
And now let's take a look at the Wellness Team
Yoga- Started as a way to fill two nights with something other than wine, Yoga is now a cornerstone of my program. I do it in the car, on hotel floors, and standing in lines. I'm even doing it right now.
Greek Yogurt- who knew the Greeks made such good yogurt?
5-6 meals a day
Tomatoland Produce on Thomasville road. (Love ya TL!)
TKM (secret healing practice)
Highlands County Wellness Camp
Holmes Beach Resort and Spa
Jake Gaither Municipal
Results after 90 days- I have lost enough butter to carve a butter sculpture (a turkey maybe?) I am enjoying reading Infinite Jest- a tome that intimidated me for years (turns out it is just a book)and I am riding stronger than I can remember since I began this blog 16 years ago. I haven't had the chance to take it to the extreme and log any huge mileage days, but for now- I'm pretty happy.
There is nothing easy about self-exile, but you can't argue with results. Me though? I'm going to stay humble, grateful even, that the Great Magnet has chosen me for this regeneration, and I see no need to stop now.
