You don’t want to know. ::smirks::

I had a great holiday week. Good friends, good family, good food and good fellowship. I paid for it a little over the weekend, but still no shot, and still no major problems.

I may do a more self-reflective post for the New Year. I’m still trying to decide what to do here.

Thoughts are welcome.

Will you miss me if I’m gone? December 23, 2009

Feeling like this blog’s point has run its course. Next week will be thirty weeks, and the posts are even fairly boring to me these days. Does anyone find them interesting anymore? I hardly have any views in the stat block. One a week, maybe. Perhaps it should be relegated to the realm of random life blogging. I’ve got my webpage blog for writing blog stuff, so I don’t need to do that here. Alkaline eating is basically a habit now, though of course, I’m not as rigid as when I started this journey. I still think I’m doing fairly well at it, and weekly summations aren’t doing much one way or the other for will power. So I think, that’s it then. I’ll still post here, but just random life stuff.  Let me know if you’ll desperately miss my food reports. 😉

I really need to have more interesting post titles. Ah well, I probably should have more interesting posts, too. 😉 Holidays, schedules and stress are wrecking havoc. Desserts are creeping past my self control far too often. Veggies are still making up most of my diet, but the cold weather steers me away from the fresh and the raw more and more.

The holiday season at work is going fairly well. I stay out of most of the hustle and bustle. And soon it will be over and return season will start. I’m ever so grateful to be out of my old position these days.

The OAC meeting was this week. I didn’t go because the rules said I wasn’t allowed to talk to the panel anyway, and I had work to do. Systems are slowly coalescing, and Soon they will be in place.

Playing the market. It’s fun, interesting and educational. More to learn, more to discover.

The holidays are closing in, things are looking up, but stress levels are still hovering a little too high for comfort. I’m taking less Enbrel again, one every couple weeks or so. I’m taking all my drugs, but generally only every other day or so, sometimes more, not really ever less. I’m doing alright. My elbow, flared since September, still isn’t calm, but it’s not really any worse either and it doesn’t hurt. The swelling just goes up and down. I’m a little more tired lately, but that’s got a LOT to do with my work schedule these days, or should I say a lack of a sleep schedule. But, I’m really feeling quite well most of the time.

Rich started his new job recently, and that’s going extremely well. We are very lucky he found a job he really likes. One of the benefits of this job is two free domain names, so Rich is back on the web and he’s offered me the other. I am slowly gathering up all the ideas I’ve been floating the last few months in preparation for a new website. My second job is going quite well. On the side, I’m also learning about investing and covered calls. The year is nearly done, and what a ride it has been. Here’s to the next one.

Half a year, wow! When you do something long enough, it becomes habit. That’s definitely the case here. Eating this way has become a habit for me. Yeah, I still enjoy all the food I used to eat. Yeah, I still crave a candy bar or piece of pie. And yes, I eat those things occasionally, even meat on my cheat days. But, however you look at it, I’m eating much healthier now. I am eating load of veggies when it used to be only at restaurants and maybe twice a month at home. I am eating far less junk food, sugar, dairy and soda. There is more balance in my diet, and it has been very good for me. It’s the holidays now, and there are lots of temptations. I had three huge, delicious and off-diet meals last week for Thanksgiving, and I enjoyed them thoroughly. Christmas is only a few weeks away, and there will be feasting then as well. I am in more control of my health now, I understand that it is up to me, and the choices I make. So I can make whatever choices I want, as long as I’m willing to deal with the consequences.
