I’m generally not a quitter, but this diet thing seems to be too much for me. It used to be so easy, but now I can’t seem to keep it up. That said, I’m going to try the keto diet. Yeah. I know I’m bouncing around from one thing to another. That’s not like me either.
I’ve stopped drinking any kind of alcohol, so that should make it easier. I enjoy a glass of wine or beer, but oddly enough alcohol causes me anxiety. I’ve never been a heavy drinker. It seems even a glass or two causes anxiety. I hate the way that feels. I can’t say I’ll never have another glass of wine again, but I can say that is a possibility. It has been a few weeks since I’ve had any alcohol, and I feel great. I’ve had no anxiety whatsoever.
My son hooked me up with a virtual reality gaming system. Beat Saber and Box VR are excellent exercise options. They’re great for upper body strength and muscle building, and there is no knee jolting from jumping or running.
I’ve been depressed about turning 60. Maybe it is just a number, but it’s a high number. For the first time in my life I feel old. I went for a facial and microderm abrasion Saturday and scheduled another appointment for next month. That actually made me feel better.
Part of the funk I’m in is that I finished all my doctoral coursework and have a hole where homework has been for 10 years. I’m still completing my dissertation and hope to do my oral defense in December.
On the upside, I got a promotion at work. My new team is amazing. I’m really loving the new position. I feel blessed to have found these wonderful people to work with.
So…day one of keto…
