I feel amazing right now, and I have healthy living to thank for it.
This is a lame thing to make a whole post about, but I’m just feeling sooo goood… :D
I’m so glad I have an aunt who worked in the mortgage business here for years (she recently retired, but the guy who’s doing my mortgage stuff knows her). I’ve been less than social for so long I had almost forgotten how much easier it is to get things done when you have people who can advise you about things, and who can refer you to their people.
Met with the mortgage guy this morning, and everything is going as planned. I don’t have any specifics to report yet, though, so I’m afraid this entry is another placeholder. I’m accelerating at an accelerating rate with this thing, so hopefully I’ll be in a place to post something interesting about this project within the month.
So, despite the fact that there are tons of amazing things to eat in the Bay Area, and I haven’t even been trying to cut down on anything or follow any sort of plan, I discovered today that I lost four pounds in the past couple of weeks. It’s obviously ‘cos I’m walking all the time… maybe I should start doing that around Anchorage, too.
I’m pretty sure the part that I actually enjoy about various intoxicants (such as alcohol, as well as other stuff that I’ve never done and anyone who tells you I have is lying) is that they (by which I mean ‘it’) make(s) me less reflective, and I reflect (some might say ‘dwell’) on things way too much.
This also conveniently explains why I like Zen so much, since enough practice in zazen yields a similar effect, but you can still drive after you do it. Also, no hangover.
