Brian,

I was born into a holistic lifestyle. My mother had cancer and was given less than a year to live, so she decided if she was going to die anyway she would try something completely different. She went hard core natural. That was before I was born, and she made it another 45+ years.

Any change is possible. Finding the right motivation is sometimes the challenge. Here are some thoughts;

My wife used to order a series, like "24" or "X-Files", and watch them on a treadmill at home. Find television programs that you enjoy, get their schedules online, and then schedule your gym visits so that you can watch them while on some cardio machine.

If your gym offers a yoga class, sign up and go a few times. It is a lot harder than it looks, but still low impact.

Go to you local natural foods megastore, and go down every aisle as if it were an adventure, buying whatever seems interesting. Fruits or vegetables you have never tried, or baked chips, whole grain breads, Flax Milk, seaweeds (I used to eat dulse right out of the bag), etc. We use all different flavors of hummus instead of sour cream or cheese based dips.

Keep an assortment of juices to give you some variety and reduce the coke cravings some. My fridge stays stocked with coconut water (without sugar), V8 with Lime, Simply Apple, Bolthouse Farms Carrot, Acai with Yerba Mate, and a gallon jug of water that I sometimes just carry around (exercise and hydration? That one is tougher trading as it requires a lot of breaks, but the empty jugs can be resourceful if one were that intense. Not me, of course...)

I have been vegetarian for nearly 30 years, and there is a vegetarian version of almost anything at Whole Foods Store List By State | Whole Foods Market (but nowadays at most major grocery stores). Some of it is crap and can turn someone off that idea quickly. I have tried nearly everything out there. Try to Morningstar Farms Ribs (in any grocery), the Quorn Naked Cutlets (tougher to find), the Tofurky Kielbasa (usually in the produce section for some reason), or the Beyond Meat Chicken-Free Strips. Those are all worth eating.

That was great, will show my wife, albeit with great caution and an exit strategy.

Summarize it as an analogy to traders.

Edit: Please

In life as well as in trading;

often times, the problem is right in front of us, but we can't see it...or won't admit to it -tt

@xelaar - I'm somewhat reticent to ask, but what is a "boy plunger"?

BTW: Have you ever seen Rennie Trossman play(guitar) in Prague?

Well, it's how they called Jessie Livermore back in the day. Not that I want any of his karma, he ended badly, but I am fascinated by him.

Probably not, I go for Jazz once in awhile but not a hardcore fan.

From Victor Niederhoffer:

One walked past the Sherry Netherlands hotel tonight where the boy wonder, Jesse Livermore, took his life. The fact that The Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is considered one of the best books on investments ever written is guaranteed to happen. Anyone who follows his advice and example is 100% certain to go broke. His pyramiding, leveraging and vig paid were each in themselves 100% certain to cause his entire stake to go to the stronger hands and flexions and top feeders like the "banks". Naturally the book is recommended as the bible for new traders to read. I am chagrined when people come up to me and say that aside from Reminiscences, their favorite book is edspec. Fortuitously, I believe that none of the other authors on this site have had that horrible experiences. Nevertheless, just walking by the hotel, and seeing the models from Fifth avenue that the boy wonder wined and dined on his yacht walk by, just as leggy and beautiful as in his day 100 years ago, made me shudder. I saw a balding man dressed in nautical attire and a top hat exiting the hotel and I whisked Aubrey away and changed my sweater as soon as I got home.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion. Jessie was a gambler, that is what put him down.

Slow day, two real opportunities, maximized one, short sheeted the other, still a good day money wise.

Off to greet the returning troops on board the Marine Air Base today. A friends son is returning home from his overseas tour and we're going to go show our support with them. Should be fun.
