Enlightenment--that magnificent escape from anguish and ignorance--never happens by accident. It results from the brave and sometimes lonely battle of one person against his own weaknesses.
-Bhikkhu Nyanasobhano, "Landscapes of Wonder"
I have way to many things to do to go to the gym today. To start off I am making some split pea soup, then I really have to finish my packing and get them mailed out. I have to finish my Christmas cards and I want to take a hot tub soak. For breakfast I had organic 4 grain with flax hot cereal. I am not sure what to have for lunch. I think just a slim fast as it seems like I feel fuller today. I might go back to the slim fast for a meal for awhile and see if I can get the weight to come off better again. I have gotten complacient. The pea soup will be for supper tonight. I will try to do a Tai Chi session before work if I get time.
Well I got done soon then expected to went to the gym after all. I used the machines alittle differently trying to work on different muscle groups and really worked up a sweat. It is easy to get to a point and just do the same thing everyday so I like to change it everytime I am there along with increasing my reps so I get the most benefit. I have cut down on the water aerobics as it seems to be bothering my lungs lately. I would like to get through this winter season without pneumonia for a change.
