Wine and Cheese

Apparently people don't like the title of my other blog, so I'm going to switch to this one, at least for now. I am almost finished with Joel Fuhrman's Disease-Proof Your Child: Feeding Kids Right, which will put me at two books for the year. I intend on finishing two more Fuhrman books in the next week or so: Fasting and Eating for Health and Super Immunity. If I can avoid watching television my reading goals should be easy, but I need to start reading two books a week for a bit to catch up.

My diet has been healthy of late for the most part, but I've done things like drinking too much wine the past week and I also gorged myself on Daiya cheese and tortillas last night. Even with such indulgences, I've been eating at least a pound of non-starchy vegetables a day, and at least two pounds most days. I'm eating at least a cup of beans, an ounce of nuts and/or seeds, and four servings of fruit daily, so my appetite is still allowing me to ingest immunity-boosting levels of nutrients, even given my occasional missteps.

I find myself very tired lately, and I think the biggest factor is my lack of vigorous exercise and inconsistent sleep schedule. I hope that if I start working out I'll be tired enough to get to sleep earlier each night.

This post is a follow-up to my earlier writings about my new year's resolutions I posted on Stephen Hates America.
