ElizabethEl's Journal, 05 May 2013

Well, sticking to my sodium level max daily and even though eating at or below my RDI weight not yet coming off. I'll be patient. Reading a great book to achieve more mindfulness and also get me inspired to paint again - The Zen of Creativity by John Daido Loori. I am finding it applies to all areas of my life, especially eating mindfully and being aware of what thoughts are in my mind around food - and feelings around not-food. There was this quote which is both profound about life and funny about food:

"Renunciation is not giving up the things of this world, but accepting that they go away" - Shunryu Suzuki

I laughed out loud. After my near death experience in March it rings deeply true for me; but regarding food it's a very visible process to watch....that irresistible chocolate cake quickly goes away down the toilet! Why do I make a god out of it?

Have a great day. Look at the yummy temptations and just say, "Oh, in 24 hours you'd just be sh&%$#t anyway and you won't have contributed to my health on the way out. So who needs you?" LOL
