So let’s be honest here, “All” the motion hasn’t been backwards. I had a relatively good day with my 1/3 program (New readers check out “About this Blog” to know what I am talking about). I started out with a single poached egg on top of a slice of pepper salami on a small piece of rye toast, all of which was perfectly cooked. mmmm especially good because it was consciously eaten while in company of collegues. During our design time, I am in the process of designing a training camp for our CTI leaders with Clark, Nancy and Sabrina who are all incredibly talented and alive creative folk, I noshed on some rice chips and nuts in a semi conscious way (part of the windup). We then had lunch which I practiced restraint and moderation on, giving mySelf less in some of the dishes and not finishing all of what was on my plate, yet being completely satisfied. I cut up a cantelope for afternoon snack with the team and had half of what I could have had of the sweetness. This is where the backwards motion of the windup really set in as I had a couple of martinis while I was barbequeing the chicken and veggies for dinner and a glass of wine at dinner. So I was feeling no pain and I wasn’t as conscious as I would have been had I been sipping a sparkling water. I do know though that I had a small piece of chicken and small amount of grilled veggies, however I blazed through my first really juicy ear of corn of the summer.
Wind up now complete and today I am ready to throw the pitch and move forward. After I am done writing I will be going down to enjoy a bowl of cereal, of which I will only eat half or so, until my consciousness says “DONE”. I will head in to town for a swim around noon and move into two wonderfully conscious meals alone for lunch and dinner as I step fully back on the path following that brilliantly pitched ball.
