Four days to go, or should I say four years to go... It will be like a walk up the side of a mountain in Nepal, barefoot, in the snow, with no Sherpa...carrying enough food to feed the rest of the monastery. And pulling a dead horse. But it will be worth it. Food intake … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – 4 Days Left
I don't think I am much closer to Zen than I was 22 days ago. Maybe my expectations were a bit high. Maybe Zen isn't meant for everyone on the Planet. Maybe Zen means different things to different people. I watch videos of Monks regularly, and they seem as content as a human could be. … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen -Day 22 Change Day 15 Days to Go
I know the title says 14 is half of 30, but I might can prove it with Common Core Math. I am 14 days in with 16 to go to reach ultimate Zen, or the plain of enlightenment, where I will most likely get steamrolled by Chris Farley coming in hot. I felt a bit … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – Day 21 Change Day 14 is Half of 30 Right?
I am now 12 days into my 30 day run to Zen, and the past two days have been horrible. I feel like someone took the life out of me. I have a massive headache, and that normally wouldn't be an issue except for the fact I have only had a few headaches in my … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – Day 19 Change Day 12 Might Kill Me
There are some days I am not worth shooting, and since I am writing this at night, I can go ahead and tell you that today was one of those days. I felt like crap since waking up. I didn't want to get out of bed; I didn't want to get in the shower, I … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – Day 18 Rough Day 11
I crave some stuff. Full flavored Coca-Cola, especially from McDonald's. Pizza, especially from Papa Johns. I also know the cravings will get much worse before they get better if they ever do. I remember wanting Taco Bell mild sauce while I was in Iraq. I craved it. These cravings are much like those were more … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – Day 17 Change Day 10
Taco Bell sales have plummeted over this past week, driving stock prices through the floor. I feel better, so Taco Bell should continue to see dips in customers for the foreseeable future. I will miss some of the cashiers. One at Wendy's knows my name better than most of my friends. Okay, I don't have … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – Day 16, Change Day 9 -Lonely Tacos
I used to eat heavy late at night. I say used to like it was years ago when in reality it was days and weeks ago. I wouldn't have trouble laying down because I just devoured two bowls of spaghetti and three garlic bread slices. I hurt from consuming three or four times what I … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – Day 15 Change Day 8 Hungry Nights
That, and it doesn't taste like most diet drinks that were engineered from the back sweat of an elephant.
No sweets again today, which is starting to eat at me. I want a Little Debbie so dang bad...
