7.45am Woke up.
This morning I allowed myself to lie in bed for 10 minutes, I felt so grateful I could just do this. Once thing I have noticed when in relationships is not many men can do this, its like they are springing out of bed before their eyes are even open properly.
I could just list there an stare at the ceiling, not thinking, not having to move. I suddenly became aware of a spider across the room descending down its web, it caught my eye and as I spied it remembering my climbing days and how really it didn’t look that much different. It suspected it was being watched and quickly climbed its web back up, and in fact the climbing technique didn’t look that much different either, I just wondered what he was doing with his web/rope. As he/she landed on the ceiling again, I thought about what kind of a world a spider lives in, how his perspective is both upside down and our way up, how he can walk on two opposing surfaces, the ceiling and the floor- pretty amazing I thought. Weeks ago my awareness would not allowed me to see this, my mind was too busy, in fact I don’t even think my eyesight would allow me to see this, I was surprised I could, however despite my eyes not being the best I have hyper vigilance to movement- like a cat I guess.
Drank .5 litre water
8.15am- Blood reading- 5.5 perfect range!
8.30 am- On the diet plan it says I can have a piece of fruit at the end of the day for dessert. But since I prefer to eat fruit in the morning, I am going to have one orange for 1 st breakfast.
9am- Blood reading- 6.4, one orange!!! sigh…
9.15am Its raining this morning and chilli so I am going to a 30 minute dynamic vinyasa yoga class on dvd.
Drank .5 litre of water
Yesterday I began taking my son’s blood readings, he is getting the same as me basically, so while he is with me, he will eat practically the same and I have given him a talk on junk food especially his cheesy nacho corn chip addiction, and how all that fat and salt is not good for him. I only have him week on and week off, I am not exactly sure if his diet when he goes with his fathers family, but his partner is greek and Zeke did tell me they eat a lot of salty, cheesy pastries- which raises some concern for the fat, salt and casein he is getting. There is not much I can do about it, since his father and I only talk through 4.5k Barristers, and me having a concern about such things is only going to cause another heart-wenching drama. The only thing I can do is to educate Zeke and hopefully he makes the changes himself.
10am- Porridge with stewed apples and date
I forgot to tai anymore Blood readings!!! Think my fingers are too sore… lol…
Homemade Chapati’s (exact same recipe as my pizza bases only done over a pan.
Quinoa, Black-eyed bean and orange salad
Greens salad with micro-greens, cucumber and oranges slices.
5pm- Zeke (my son)went down the street with his friends and listened to me about the corn chips, he said he looked everywhere for something else he wanted but he really wanted that salty thing, so he bought a packet of salted, roasted peanuts. I explained that this probably wasn’t the best choice but he got narky with me and said- well he didn’t know what else to get that was going to give him that salty feeling. Anyhow its a start. He said he felt sick afterwards anyhow.
Indonesian style stir fry noodle.
Now I don’t exactly stick to the recipes- I try to improve them!! lol
Some things still call for using a little oil on the pans but I avoid this.
Also the stir fry was meant to have 6 cloves of garlic, but after RT4 I can’t do this, so one is sufficient, additionally I usually half the amount of sugar in most recipes, since I am not a big sweet-tooth except fruit.
8.30pm- Bloods- 7.3
Will check again at 9pm cos I think I am still on the way up.
Its the last super moon so I am going to go for a walk up the plateau tonight, and howl at the moon 🙂
