37 Days to Zen – Day 24 Change Day 17 – 13 to Go

I woke up again this morning feeling lighter. I haven't been eating late at night, right before bed, or snacking at any time. Only diet sugar-free drinks. I'm not stuffing my face for every meal; I have been stopping when I start to feel full. On all meat meals that is hard to do, as … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – Day 24 Change Day 17 – 13 to Go

37 Days to Zen -Day 22 Change Day 15 Days to Go

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.

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 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

37 Days to Zen – Day 15 Change Day 8 Hungry Nights

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 hurt from consuming three or four times what I … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – Day 15 Change Day 8 Hungry Nights

I GOT PAID! AAAAND it’s gone.

I doubt anyone from Tuscumbia, Missouri reads Chop's Guide but I have a friend who not only works at Dispatch with me, she has also been working at the T-Town Deli. She cooks for us in dispatch all the time and it is always good so imagine what she can to with an actual facility. She brought me an Enchilada the other day and it was pretty fantastic... would be great if I could sweet talking her into delivering me foodstuffs every day I am in Dispatch. Hint, Hint, Crystal.
