I can't believe the last few weeks a flu. Morphed into another two weeks of absolute unadultered slacking and this is after. I started to feel better. My good habits took a nosedive. And i feel awful. I can't believe how quickly our bodies and our minds adapt to a new level of laziness and need for creature comforts he. Donald adaptation is expensive for your soul. And your wallet. I'm embarrassed to say that. I've fallen victim to idleness. Taking the easy way out of what seems to be everything i seek. What's least painful. Most restful most enjoyable and leased productive. I'm cutting corners doing work. That's good enough or dodging it altogether. I'm spending more money than usual for convenience. And i've even let a goal slip by that. I'll regret for a long time. I went from walking and biking full days and ignoring tv to being a car. Driving couch potato indulging in day-long tv fess periodic napping and ignoring all household chores. That doesn't include making myself something to eat with as little work as possible and the least nutritional value.

I want to plan gastronomic indulgences. As opposed to making them everyday occurrences. Ona move my body to feel how strong and capable it is. I want to take the time to connect with people and have hours. Long involves conversations. I want to go to bed and fall asleep as my head is pillow. After very full day. I also want to feel the pride and fulfillment. That comes from day. That i've lived dot fully purposefully. I know be tough. I- cozied up with the dark side way too easily and unfortunately feel. It's poll for a number of days until i successfully clean up my act. My success will be in every decision every action and fighting the knowledge that may be so much easier to ignore the pile of work. That's waiting for me after all. What's one more day. A chosen to start with what i always find. Energizing house cleaning with feels better and getting back to your old self than an environment. That's clean and orderly so far. I'm halfway through the laundry of wash dishes. Clean the bathrooms and watch out vacuum cleaner. Because you're next. I think this is going to be a good. Start to a tough climb.
