It's a Great life!

Mar 15, 2013 - 0 comments

Providing you don't weaken! So try not to. Am content with my lot, not enduring it, but enjoying it. After well over 20 years of mental turmoil, I'm doing fine. My belief is that it's better to accept things that come along & do wht's possible to make the most of what's on offer. Was not easy to reach this state, my running in all weathers has not done me any obvious harm. Today I bought some dried insect grubs from Zimbabwe, they taste like rotten wood, but after eating a few they become more acceptable, it's better to do the things that appeal to you than not try them. Seems everyone will have to eat insects in future, as they are an excellent source of protein, and abundant. It's not necessary to travel to have adventures on a mini-scale.  Weight concerns are not something that troubles me. I'm full of respect for those that can maintain a 'diet'. Meanwhile I'll continue to overeat, enjoying the real pleasure that being a glutton brings..,

I gave it up!

Accept it?

Instead of losing I gained ~ yet again. But, I'm not too concerned about it. I can live without any anxiety about weight. Life's going well & I'm not letting setbacks as trivial as this concern me. I'm often told I'm 'skinny' but that just ain't true. Have learned to relax & enjoy so many other things. For anyone else that's truly overweight don't take any notice of my ramblings. If your health's at stake you need to be serious. Wish you all luck. George

Nothing Great is Easy!

As I'm happy about most aspects of life now, I'm less motivated to cut-back on what I enjoy. Of course this is not the way to lose weight ~ I'll give it another shot, only 21 days left to reach the target that I've not really aimed at this time. I know it's nice to feel in good shape, the instant gratification's been what I've been going after, No one to blame but me. Circumstances have conspired to prevent exercising so far this year, but exercise doesn't = weight loss. Only determination to lose it can do it. If you don't eat you can't gain weight, simple as that?Just watch that line drop from now? Good luck to all that manage what they set out to do.

Sloth & Gluttony + Excess in all things!

If having failed twice to attain weight loss goal I'm going to try yet again. To make it easier I've given myself a long time to lose it, & have lowered the goal somewhat. As my mood mode's excellent it's not something that's causing me concern, but failing's not good, no one sets out to fail. The festive season's a great excuse to let rip & forget restraint. But there's always a price to pay for pleasure, indulgence or whatever. The buzz I get from running's well worth the effort that I"ve got to put in to get it.Being lighter means I've less to run with. Thats what I'm going to use to motivate this time. Good Luck to those that have real problems weightwise.,I can  always blame the meds.I'm on if I needed an excuse.The real truth's that I'm a pig & eat whatever comes  my way.What's your excuse? Will be interested to learn how others find excuses.
