When I was younger I was so in tune with my body. I always seemed to know how far to push it and then go that little bit more to surpass the boundaries without breaking them. I no longer feel that way. I feel as though years of ignoring what it has to say has taken its toll and there are many times I just can't understand it anymore. Or perhaps, I am still ignoring what it's saying and I haven't learned a thing.
I am trying to rectify this problem. I am trying to pay better attention but it is hard. I'm not used to forcing it to go beyond itself anymore and I really need to change that. My spare time over the next couple of days will be spent working on this problem. I have some ideas on how I want to go about it and we'll have to see what falls out of the thought process.
In the mean time, I have to find a post office. After I get done writing tomorrow morning, I have two objectives. The first is to send out a couple of packages of my own. Sorry Kim, it's not your turn as yet. They are for Matt and Moose, but your turn is coming soon. After that, I will be in search of the DMV. I need to get a Nevada State drivers license. I would be a fool not to get one as the locals here get a lot of benefits. For starters, every restaurant at the Hilton gives a 25% discount to people with them. That's a good enough reason right there.
Anyway, back to listening to my body. Sunday night I felt as though I were ready to start eating again. Just to make sure, I waited until Monday night. I had some Ramen noodles. I must have been craving the salt, something seriously lacking in these sweet juice drinks I have been consuming. I generally crave salts and fats much more so than sweets. Not that I don't eat my share, but I prefer the former to the latter as a rule.
I'll leave that as my parting thought. How much do you ignore your body?
