New In My Life

1. gluten free since 8/26 except for one educational outing to introduce my daughter to Fat Cat pizza on 9/16.

2. A bizarre addiction to Polar flavored seltzer water. I drink like 4 a day but they totally curb sugar carvings.

3. After being a vegetarian for 4+ years with a slide here an there, I am now pig obsessed. paying a fortune each time I indulge because it cannot be a pig whose farmer and butcher I do not know personally, same goes with eggs and chicken. This will not last, since a 2 lb chicken (more like a partridge or a dove) obtained this way cost $19 bucks. So far the pig parts have been a gift, which I doubt I can afford to mail order from the Northeast Kingdom of VT.

4. Maybe its the meat, but I am behaving like an aggressive male football fan during this election, both in person and on FB. Apologies to FB friendships with 5 more weeks to go.

5. Oh, good reads: A Hologram for the King-Dave Eggers, True Believers-Kurt Andersen, Cloud Atlas- David Mitchell. Do read Cloud Atlas before it gets cinematizised, even though it will be a Wachowzki film and in my eyes they can do no wrong.

6. And finally can someone point me towards putting self acceptance into action without having to pretend that I like anything about what is going on with me right now?

7. Okay the yoga is better than a couple of weeks ago, and the gluten free thing makes me feel more energized plus I’m sleeping better, BUT THAT’S IT!

  1. Oh oh…ahimsa out? Gluten free is great though. Makes me feel more flexible when I don’t eat gluten. There’s definitely something to it…less inflammation in my joints too. All us good when the yoga is good:)

    • Completely Carol, I am really so argumentative and reactive to what happens around me right now. Sort of regressive but I go through three steps forward then two steps back in asana all the time. Maybe the other limbs are like that too?

  2. Yeah I think so…and I think that’s life in general sometimes…3 steps forward, 2 steps back 🙂 I have become comfortable with it most of the time myself. As long as I get on my mat every day…I feel like I have accomplished a lot. I am rather rebellious otherwise…lol.
