I feel extraordinarily relaxed. My heart is calm.
I resumed exercising 2 weeks ago. I sweat while running. Now my legs can rest.
I feel put, like a plant on a bookshelf — inert but alive and thriving.
I eat clean and efficient. Nothing extraneous. I’ve removed noodles, bread and rice from my diet.
I shop for lofty food — leafy greens and avocados, beans, garlic and onion, fruit, nuts and raisins, pesto for lettuce wraps.
I improvise a recipe of shredded carrot and black beans, tzatziki sauce, cucumber and red onion. Chopped romaine, feta and chickpeas.
