Sleeping, cooking and birthday wishes

Sleeping, cooking and birthday wishes

I slept yesterday for 8 hours straight. No bathroom breaks. I can’t even remember the last time that happened. Eight hours of straight, uninterrupted sleep. I didn’t believe it was possible anymore. I wonder if my new heating/ac unit had anything to do with it. Probably not since I don’t think that has any effect on the bladder. I’ve been so tired. I don’t even want to write about it anymore. The topic itself I find exhausting. I rather talk…

On top of that though, I was busy this week. I had my friend from the building up visiting. I had…

Going back to Plant based eating

Going back to Plant based eating

I made a decision last week to go back to eating more plant based/vegan. It has nothing to do with diet in a losing weight idea. I think I’ve given up on that concept because nothing works for me anymore. I need to accept my body for where it is today. I canceled my weight watchers membership. I’ve noticed over time myl eating has changed to incorporate a lot of processed foods again. Things that were easy points on weight…

Made this soup from WW, formally weight watchers, the other day. It was really good. A nice hearty filling soup perfect for the winter weather.
