Anyone else relieved we’re halfway through February—and thus, another month of winter?
Despite the snow, I can’t complain so far about this winter. I also actually had the first enjoyable (aka conflict-free) Valentines Day I can recall since, well, ever. After an amazing, headache-clearing massage, I spent the afternoon working in my favorite coffee shop before meeting up with a girlfriend for a glass of wine.
There was a lady at the bar teaching her clueless man-friend how to eat oysters. It kind of made my night.
I’ve been working a lot of Saturdays at the hospital, so a mellow Friday evening with an early bedtime suited me just fine. Besides, full moons make me tired.
Speaking of full moons, have you heard about the lunar/werewolf diet yet? Or excuse me, Moon Diet. Though I can get on board with the idea that our bodies might be more inclined to retain—or get rid of—water during a particular phase of the moon, I don’t really see why fasting is necessary. You could do just as well being mindful of sodium intake and filling your plate with bloat-fighting foods that are rich in potassium. Also, losing 6 pounds (of water weight that you’ll probably just gain back) in 24 hours isn’t exactly healthy. Just my professional opinion, of course…
Anyway, happy weekend.
How did you spend Valentines Day? What’s the craziest diet you’ve ever heard of?
