            Only Homemade Food - ​​ - Total Days: 366/366

            So... I ate (almost) exclusively homemade food for an entire year. (I allowed myself a couple of exceptions, including whole wheat tortillas, curry paste, and a couple of sauces. But, for the most part, I cooked all of my food from unprocessed ingredients.) I had not meant to eat only homemade for a full year. My original intention had been to do strictly homemade for one month but to allow myself the occasional restaurant meal with a friend later in the year, and maybe to get takeout from the Park Store in Rondeau once a month during the summer. Then Covid happened. So no eating in restaurants. (It was allowed where I live for most of the year. But hanging out in an indoor public place with no mask on is not a good idea if one wants to avoid catching the plague. And I really didn't want to catch the plague. Or give it to the senior citizens with whom I live, at least one of whom would be very unlikely to survive the experience. So I never risked it.) And when Rondeau's Park Store finally opened, it only sold ice cream. No hot food. I did want to maintain my only homemade desserts rule all year (and maybe forever). So ice cream was not an option.

            The changes I made to my diet this past year were significant and very beneficial to me. Once we've all been vaccinated against Covid-19, I hope I will be able to share meals with friends outside of my own household once again. My preference in this regard is, and always has been, to host home-cooked feasts in my own home. But I have friends who enjoy meals out in restaurants and who prefer getting takeout to cooking. So I expect there will be some restaurant food in my future for the sake of being social. I fully intend to keep this as an occasional thing, however, and to continue with my policy of only eating homemade desserts. (Any dessert sold commercially in my part of the world would be far too sweet for my palate now.) I think for now I will continue to track total consecutive days of eating homemade, to see how far I get. But once this streak is eventually broken, I'm thinking I'll switch to tracking eating homemade as a monthly ratio.

            Daily Drawing - - Clearly I need to stop calling this "Daily Drawing". I also need to get back to doing it! It's not going to be a daily practice for me going forward. But I do want it to be a regular one.

            I do have some goals I want to work towards over the coming year. But my new year starts on my birthday, not on the first of the month. So more on this topic soon.

              Rainbow Dragon - GOBOT and GBOT made me curious.

              GOBOT and GBOT made me curios.

              Is the following correct?

              GOBOT = get out of bed on time, and GBOT = get to bed on time.

              I can't figure out the numbers.

                  Yes. This is correct.

                  For GOBOT and GBOT I am currently tracking how well I do each week. So my Sunday entries will show 1/1 if I made my goal or 0/1 if I missed it. On Mondays, the score is out of 2, Tuesdays 3, etc. through to Saturdays where the ratio represents my score for the full week.
