***Your Desire to change must be stronger then your Desire to stay the same.***

Other Information:
On November 1, 2017 I was chosen to participate in a 14 week study with the Salk Institute. Study being conducted by Dr. Satchin Panda

**Time Restricted Eating. Consuming food within a 12 hour period, in conjunction to our Circadian Rhythm . I shoot between 9-10hrs. I consume my food from 9a-6:30p. I don't count Calories, I try to eat more intuitively. Not having Processed Foods, Dairy, and Sugar makes identifying real hunger queues much easier! *My Experience!

    I can't do it at home. Several reasons. But I am still paying for my fistula surgery that I was rushed into before my Insurance would cover the cost. I can't do another surgery for PD access. Nor do I want to.

    emoticon Happy 28 degree sunshine, Sunshine! It snowed overnight here in NM, woke up to a blanket of white, only about 2 inches, but cold. Work is a Mountain, came back to 700+ emails and everything is due. I'm kinda tripping, trying to figure out how to get everything done by the end of the month. I going blast Hawaiian music, that always makes me laugh and calm the hell down! TRX suspend class tonight at 6pm will help.

    emoticon Me, putting on my brave work face!

    Thanks for the blog support! I think IF is going to be a key for me to finally make sustainable progress -- and maintenance too -- it means so much to see/learn from others who are already doing so!
