The wind has quieted down now. For the last couple of days, it has been pressing on the windows and rattling the vent. The temperature didn’t make it over zero today. Many days, I look out of the window and wish I could spend the day out of doors. Today, I am thankful I have a warm place to wait out the cold wind.
On Saturday, I went to one of the big box stores for some household supplies. Waiting in the checkout line, I noticed that the shelves on one side were filled with discounted champagne. The shelves on the other side held various products aimed at weight loss. It happens every January. I find my thoughts and experiences at odds with much of what I read about weight loss and general approaches to healthiness.
I think it is all about nutrients. Filling your body with food full of nutrients, getting a good night’s sleep, and going for a walk in the fresh air is like giving your body a hug filled with love. It responds by feeling and working better. I don’t think trying to achieve good health or losing weight needs to be a chore, painful or filled with deprivation. I am going to write more about this later.
One thing I like about winter is that it is citrus season. I have been loving the fresh orange, lemon, and lime juice I make in the mornings.
Take care, stay warm, and thanks for reading.
