Not Much to Say Today

Monday, September 16, 2013

I had potato chips for dinner. Figured it was ok because I had chocolate for breakfast.

Tomorrow is the first day I will be working from home in quite some time, and I succumbed to human trash can mode Ė you know the mentality: ďI donít want to obsess over this food tomorrow so Iím going to get rid of it by eating it all today.Ē

Not my best moment. On a positive note, I did get a run in tonight Ė but not for as far or as fast as I would have liked.

Tomorrow is another day.

A while back, I shared a little bit about longevity ( wp.me/p1N36Q-8a ). Because thatís what this all comes down to Ė doing what it takes today to have a long, healthy, and happy life. Hereís another post from Markís Daily Apple with a few more secrets about longevity:

7-characteristics-associat
ed-with-long-life-and-how-
to-cultivate-them/#axzz2f6qHrG3h


In it, he shares being socially connected is important for a long life, once again poking holes in my hermit strategy ( wp.me/p1N36Q-fr ). Also, worriers and introverts apparently donít live quite as long as their easy-going, extroverted counterparts, so thereís two additional strikes against me.

I keep saying Iím going to do all the things I want in life when I retire. For me, itís not about having enough money in retirement (at least, not right now) as I think Iím doing all the right things financially. If I continue ignoring my carb addictions, Iím simply going to run out of time Ė and, now that Iíve watched the Grain Brain webinar ( wp.me/p1N36Q-iK ) Ė I know I may run out of brain power.

So I took the opportunity to tell the world what I want to do in retirement:

At least, whoever happens to be hanging out in Times Square from October 21-25. They say if you declare your goals publicly, you are more likely to achieve them.

Of course, they donít say WHEN you are going to achieve them. Iíve been publicly declaring my intentions to stay Binge Free and Wheat Free for seven months now and am still struggling.

    Struggling is a part of life, but so are the calm periods. May you have more of those, and then your craving for chocolate and chips as meals might diminish. Don't give up on yourself. Glenn
