Default Forcing My Body Today

I'm fasting. Well I'm going to do about 850 calories or try anyway. I need to clean myself up. I've been uncharacteristically indulgent and thoughtless about my overall wellness lately. So...

I took a really REALLY hot bath today (as hot as I could stand it knowing I wouldn't get scalded) and sat in it for like 1/2 hour. I threw some mustardy bath stuff in and fully ENJOYED the whole experience and it did me good. I spent good time there.

I just got in from 1 1/2 of intensive raking (my favorite sport btw, I love the repetitiveness, the sound of the leaves, but the being outside getting intensive exercise while ENJOYING the fall is irreplacable!). I've been quite sedentary lately, haven't liked that.

I then took a walk to the meadow behind my house and took a look at everything that's blooming, now that it is fall. (when I'm happy I AM one of the original genuine nature boys by the way, I live on 4 acres in the forest, in a pretty isolated area, ponds all around me: I don't see another soul).

So today I'm thinking that I'm just plain TIRED of being depressed as if it's my only choice.I'm going to think about some of these decisions I'm allowing myself to make lately. I'm going to be more thoughtful about spending my time more positively. I'm not going to allow myself to think so illy of myself.

And that's going to take some hard work but OK.

Good for you; given you're self all of that wonderful beauty/space/time & just enjoying life, to the fullest! I have to say, I'd like to bring my dogs over & let them play in your 4 acres of land! Mind you now, that they will wreck all of those leaves you just raked up; but since I noticed you enjoyed it so much, I didn't think that you would mind doing it again! :lol: (j/k)

Making some "special" time for ourselves; what I call it. It truly is great. It not only allows are body some time to relax, but more importantly our minds. I love fall, but I checked out the Weather; it's suppose to SNOW by Wednesday/Thursday at the latest; 40% chance! I will admit, that while I personally love snow, my body doesn't. I love watching all the uneek snowflakes fall; reminds me of how we're are all uneek & nobody is truly the same. I love watching my dogs play in it; they act like a total puppies again, which I enjoy.

After the first falling, I do get unhappy with it though, never figured out why? Maybe because I know it'll be around for months to come, it brings snow storms, closings, auto problems like that for others. I truly haven't really understood it, but have always enjoyed to see the very first snow flakes falling; it's like being a child again, at my old age! :)

You must live in a very cold place if it's going to snow already! I'm the same way on it: looks nice, that's about it. Winter is COLD and long to me.

Ah yeh your dogs could mess up my leaves and you're RIGHT I would just re-rake them. :) I still have more to do and the bulk have the leaves haven't even begun to fall!

I got a little sick last night, I wasn't sure if it was cutting back on meds (responsibly) or what. But I made it through and slept well. Now it's time to do it all over again.
