Last day of the sugar detox. I actually started eating some different things yesterday because I really did not feel well. I think that was the right choice. Some bread, a bit of honey in my tea and 4 Chips Ahoy cookies. Yes. It was the right choice.
But, seriously, this is the second year of doing this program and it has been one of the best things I’ve done for my health. It’s a reset and helps change bad eating habits. This year I learned I don’t do well with a high fat, high meat diet. I need to eat lighter and I do need some good carbs.
Wes, Christian and I have been watching Cobra Kai together. Charlie had already watched the first season. It’s a pretty awesome show. I wasn’t sure about it but the first episode had me hooked. I love the 80’s.
And I started another show today. (It’s a pandemic and winter in New England so all bets are off.). Normal People. It’s really great too. It’s set in Ireland. I need to go to Ireland.
On my walk to day, I came upon a heard of deer. They must’ve heard me before I noticed them because all of a sudden I heard all sorts of rustling and splashing. They were crossing the brook, getting away from me, the human. Oh, how I wanted to take a video but I made that split second decision to keep my eyes where the action was. I watched eight deer prance though the water and off into the woods on the other side. I was about twenty feet away. It doesn’t get much better than that.
And as I started walking again I heard a grunt. One little guy got left behind! We had a conversation. A one sided conversation. I did manage to capture him on video. I’m going to attach it below. Make sure you have the sound on. I hope it makes you smile.
