Yesterday I ate:
9:00 . . . 10 honey tangerines
11:00 . . . 6 honey tangerines
4:00 . . . 16 honey tangerines
6:00 . . . 1 large cantaloupe + 1 lb. cherry tomatoes
8:00 . . . handful of medjool dates (7-8?)
Play: walking/running 4 miles, dance, acrobatics, stretching
Man, I am so grateful for these honey tangerines. They are getting me through this transition to summer. And I am SO not tired of them. Actually, I will be sad to see them go. They taste like CANDY to me, so unbelievably sweet! I just bought up the whole supply at the store for the weekend. I hope it is not the last of them.
Right now I am learning a new acrobatic stunt which is taking me longer to "get" than I would like. So I am reminded of the old adage: Often, before things are easy, they are hard.
This applies to everything, including eating fruity. Eventually, it does become so easy that you wonder how or why it ever seemed difficult or challenging. So please don't give up. Keep going, a little at a time, until it becomes second nature. You are gradually living your way into a new life.
And to inspire you even more to action, I will share one of my favorite sayings that I often use with my yoga buddies. This was seen written on a wall in India:
The human body is a gift which does not often come around.
This is no time for sleep, you fool.
