I didn't know when I wrote the last post how prophetic the words would be. I guess I was ready for a change and the world really gave me a jolt. I've come bounding out of my stupor.
A radical change in diet was in order. I quit coffee and alcohol pretty much cold turkey. Somehow, since the time was right, it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. Going from 6-10 cups of coffee and 1/2 a bottle of wine a day down to zero was something that I was really sure I couldn't do. A kick in the pants from the universe is a motivator. Also I'm following a mostly raw vegan diet. I've been a vegan for several years now but trying to go raw was another thing I just couldn't seem to manage until recently. It's really helped me to lose some weight and to sleep better (well, maybe cutting the caffeine and alcohol helped too).
I'm trying to get more exercise and meditate to work on my energy level and chaotic mind. That hasn't been as successful as the dietary changes but I'm still hopeful.
It feels better to be moving forward.
