    A 28 day streak of stretching me feet and the inflammation has almost gone done. Metatarsals are feeling much better, an the tendons sloooowly lengthen and relax.
    I'll keep that up for sure.

    Another old entry:

    Goal: Take care of my body.

    Body: I have been thinking about creating this type of goal for some time now. I'm not sure that it is a goal I can ever quite mark as fulfilled due to its ongoing nature and I'm not sure if it will be ideal due to the fact that it will encompass a lot of smaller goals, but I wanted to have a place to group together different goals related to my health. We'll see how it goes. I have been meaning to organize a few of my goals for a while, and as I looked through some of the past entries for this one, I realized that instead of adding a new goal, I could simply modify this one.

    When I think about taking care of my body, I think about three main areas as a foundation:


    1. Sleep


    What I would like is to get 7 to 8 hours of sleep, and to get to bed before midnight, ideally around 11pm.


    1. Diet


    I would like to move towards a simpler, more natural diet including more whole foods, more fruits and vegetables, and less processed foods. I would also like to keep hydrated.


    1. Exercise


    Ultimately, my ideal was to do some form of cardio three times per week, for at least 30 minutes, and strength training twice per week, for at least 15 minutes, in addition to daily stretching. These days, I am feeling a bit more flexible with the types of exercises, as long as I am getting regular exercise, but I will still use the previous goals as a guideline.

    I also think relaxation, checkups and appointments, and possibly a health journal are important.

    I would like to find something I can do daily or weekly that would relax my mind and body. I would like to ensure I am getting regular checkups annually, and would like to offer my body special treatments, for example a massage, hair cut, etc., four times per year (once per season).

    I think I am fairly in tune with my body but I would like to improve this. I would like to be attentive to how different foods and exercises make me feel, and would like to lead my body to a healthier, more balanced state.

    Found this old entry:

    Body: I have been thinking lately about ways to improve my health, including my physical health.

    Of course there is the general idea of eating well, getting enough sleep and exercise, reducing stress, etc.

    I asked myself what would make me feel healthier and started to identify specific areas I would like to improve. I like that this way, I can take concrete steps and see the progress.

    The following are some of the things that would make me feel better, healthier (in no particular order):

    -Having more energy

    -Having a flat stomach/not being bloated

    -Having healthy bowel movements regularly

    -Having stronger legs

    -Improving my cardio (being able to run longer without tiring)

    -Improving the quality of the toenails on one of my feet (fungus)

    -Having a healthy mouth

    -Going for regular check-ups (medical, dental, etc.)

    Somehow, I lost another kg over Easter. Admittedly, I still have most of the candy around - but the loss is a bit unexpected.
    Well, the journey continues, it seems.

    Another milestone covered on the way to feeling better - I'm down another kg. Not dieting, still. It's been a journey of more than a year now and so far, it works well.
    Let's see where the journey takes me.
