It's Real

“Do not let your fire go out, 
spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swaps of the not-quite, 
the not-yet, 
and the not-at-all. 
Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration
for the life you deserved
and have never been able to reach. 
The world you desire can be won. 
It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it's yours.” 
 ~ Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

Today felt like I could have used a metcon. Saturday's run was pleasing in place of a swim. However, in keeping with the program, got to the gym later than I hoped. Pulled off a clean session, satisfied. Then, shuttled out to get in a couple of chores and an early dinner.  Tomorrow will be a long evening, so time with the family is welcome.

Good Eats ... 22 days into no sugar, other than 2 fruit servings daily, no starch, moderate fat ~ just changing things up a bit. Even my diet can use an adjustment sometimes. All foods are geared toward cellular flushing and easy digestion. A little epi-paleo, perfect health & anti-inflammatory focus. Reduction of residual stress and reset of HPA axis can go a long way for rejuvenation and repair.
