Rebuilding — Bodies and Habits

Sunset at the Shack on the Hawaii Kai Marina,

Good Evening, God!

The dinner dishes are done and I am listening to my wonderful husband Kit play the piano. We had the piano completely overhauled and it took from February to July. It was well worth the time and money. The piano has a lovely rich tone, and it is also a handsome piece of furniture. As the piano restorer said, “They don’t make them like this anymore.”

I see a parallel, God, in my working to overhaul myself. Today was my eighth day of going to 24 Hour Fitness. I am focusing on the goal of getting myself there. I will think about charting  improvements later! I suspect that I should give myself the same amount of time it took to get the piano done. That would be seven months . . .

On Monday, a friend came over to help put my office back in shape, and she raved about a new eating plan she was on. It’s the Fast Diet. 51WUbU+KlAL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA278_PIkin4,BottomRight,-66,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_Two days a week one consumes only 500 calories. The idea is to hit the Reset Button on our bodies. Apparently the body, when it suspects that food might become scarce, tunes itself up.

My take is that if the Body isn’t eating and digesting as much as usual, it has more energy for cleaning up. And I do need cleaning up.  I started Tuesday and it was so easy that I actually wanted to do it again today.

Ah, but can I do it on our upcoming trip to Berlin? I am great at starting . . . but enthusiasm tends to wane . . .So, my challenge is to  STICK WITH IT!

I feel certain that the exercise of sticking with it will be of even great importance to my total well being.
