Slowly assimilating back into the family. Still tired from the travel, physical work, and adrenaline crash from returning to the familiar.
Problem is that I do not want to go back to how life was managed before the mission trip. “But I am tired!”, whiny voice here.
The schedule was grueling while away, trying to complete as much as possible in as short of time as we could. The work was chewed through and the end of the days were wrapped up with a bow of satisfaction.
I don’t want that to remain there, I want it here also!
Diet was a huge part of our success I believe. We were eating keto with intermittent fasting. Well balanced, healthy, not processed food.
The fresh air, and physical labour made sleep sweet.
Making a grocery list today. Not breaking under the pressure of convenience and the desire for treats.
Fresh whole foods. Moderate quantities/portion control. No unhealthy snacking.
Getting outside into the garden. Absorbing the sunshine, breathing the air, stimulating the senses.
Wrapping the day into a bow of satisfaction of a job well done!
