I read a quote that sums up the way I feel about my life lately.
You can’t do anything about the length of your life, but you can do something about its width and depth. – Shira Tehrani
This is exactly why I started my blog. I want to live life with every ounce of effort I have, because it’s only so long. It’s no surprise this deployment has been very hard on me and I’ve been letting it get the best of me for too long. I know that he wouldn’t be happy with me to know I’ve been living this way, because I would be furious with him if things were reversed. It’s time to start living my life. I don’t want to look back and realize that I lost a year of my life moping because things didn’t work the way I wanted them to. That’s just silly.
There are so many things I want to do, and I’m tired of sitting around waiting to do them.
Now, if the weather would warm up just a bit I’d get to do some of the things on my list!
I think I’m going to start adding a squirt of lemon juice to at least some of the water I have every day. I was googling the health benefits of lemon juice, and just from the results, you can see that it wouldn’t be a bad idea. I like lemon water, so I don’t see why this would be such a bad thing to do and it turns out it’s good for me!
I have been a picky eater for as long as I can remember. Where new foods excite some, they scare the crap out of me. I’m working on that. I enjoy food, so there’s no reason to limit the foods I enjoy. I’m working to improve the variety in my diet, and to inject healthier foods into some of the foods I eat everyday.
I did exactly this with my potato soup recipe.
When I was boiling the potatoes I tossed in some broccoli to amp up the nutritional factor. After they were finished, I ran the veggies through my food processor.
What came out was almost identical to the soup I had last week, but just a little greener and a little healthier.
I’ll take it.
Tomorrow starts day 1 of C25K! I’ll let you know how it goes!
