Cloud like a Dragon

I was born in the year of the dragon.
This is today’s sunrise after the morning run.
Do you see the dragon?
It’s there; really, it’s there! 



Everest Restaurant, Beit Jala

Artistic shot of the weekend..
All 70+ teachers from our school gathered for a monthly luncheon at the restaurant at the highest peak of the town, appropriately named Everest.
Jordan is about 30 miles away, but it seemed much closer. Perhaps it’s the sun, playing with light, spilling pink on the horizon.
The “cross” on the left, points at Bethlehem. It was not intentional. It is just a part of a broken fence. It seemed to transform itself while editing in the Lightroom.


16:8 Intermittent Fasting

I am a grazer. Whenever there is food around, I eat it, hungry or not. I really should weigh 300+ pounds, but thanks to frequent workouts, I don’t. It’s not enough, however. I always tend to consume more calories than what I burn.
I then read about 16:8 fasting. It sounded gimmicky, but it fit my schedule pretty well, so I decided to give it a shot. That was almost 2 months ago.
So far..
1. I consume fewer calories overall. I can eat only so much in 8 hours per day instead of 16.
2. Fat is melting away; very slowly, but it is definitely going away.
3. I crave weird foods when coming off fast, but not junk foods. Today, I craved peanut butter and banana sandwich, drizzled with cinnamon honey sauce, with a side of avocado sprinkled with soy sauce.
