- I leaned out a little in my lower ab area. No surprise. Also no big deal. I'm quite lean already and I've no desire to step onto a bodybuilding stage at any point.
- My visual acuity increased. This one is cool. I have high myopia and have required corrective lenses or contacts since I was 12. Although my eyes stabilized years ago, I guess I've gotten used to vision that is not, well, really sharp all of the time. It's spot on all day now, and I'm loving it. So much so that I don't plan bringing chocolate back on a regular basis (WOW)! We'll see though.
Alright, my deal here is not to figure out all possible causes of poor eyesight or if we can better it (I've no illusions of lowering my prescription), rather I was just intrigued by the increase of my visual clarity and how it was brought on by eliminating a substance from my diet. Is chocolate acting in other ways throughout my body that I just can't notice? Maybe. Maybe not. I love how there's so much to figure out. Life really wouldn't be nearly as interesting if we had all of the answers now would it?
It was supposed to snow here today but turned out fine (bad, bad year for our local weatherman) so I decided to put my new found X Ray Vision to good use and went for a Nature Walk:
As you can see on the left, some busy Beavers are starting to make a lodge in the river (click the pictures to enlarge). I think they were inspired by the 'house' going up on the ridge above. House my behind, that thing has it's own gravitation pull!
Hmm, looks like I caught the Beavers during a lunch break. Maybe the hole is where they're staying until they finish the Lodge.
Not much about Paleo in this post, but life isn't all about fretting over diet and exercise. Once you get pretty darn healthy you chomp at the bit to do things like this Nature Walk.
