Over The Next Year


I hate annual goals or plans.  They never work out, or if they do, all of the work is done in the last 90 days.


What I do have is a vision.  We are still in the midst of the Coronavirus hoax and being asked to self-quarantine.  I have been in a near quarantine for over 2 years.  But the difference is this one is forced.


The prior lockdown, and the promise of more government trouble in the future, makes me shift my vision to a one-year plan. I believe it’s going to take at least one year before I have the finances and the situation in hand where I can leave the country again.


My passport expired in August, and the State Department is months behind in issuing new passports. The same is true for my driver’s license which expires in September.



License renewed online.

Way easier than going to the DMV.


Governors around the country are making it very difficult for citizens to leave normal lives. I expect a complete cluster f*ck during the next election.


Before March, I spent 2 to 3 hours each day at Panera Bread working my online business and writing.  It’s been my de facto office for months.  I can still use the drive in for coffee, but I went there to work and not be bothered or tempted by the television or refrigerator.



Panera Bread is back.

50% capacity.

Paper cups – no ceramic mugs.

Wifi is as good as ever.


There are so many goals I could put in place, with the inevitable failure.


What I will do during the lockdown is map out my ideal vision for the rest of my life.  It’s easier to do when there is nowhere to go except to the grocery store.  Forced poverty is no challenge.


I have been testing different systems for reversing type ii diabetes with no long term success.  Fasting works, but not for long.  Right now, I am testing OMAD (One Meal A Day), but you still have to limit your consumption during that one meal.  I shot my sugar up from 98 to 467.


So I need to adjust my vision.  At the end of 365, I will be diabetes free without the need of medication.


It sounds funny, the ADA (American Diabetes Association) guidelines for diet may be what I need.  Should be fine for only 1 meal a day, and if I limit grains and oils, I can increase to 2 or more meals a day soon.


I am collecting various meal plans.  I already have my tray.
