Movie quotes to live by: ‘Remember, a Jedi can feel the Force flowing through him. You mean it controls your actions? Partially, but it also obeys your commands’
Star Wars, 1977, 20th Century Fox
The nudge you get when your subconscious wants something that you want
I had earlier planned to go for a walk this evening but when the time came, I really didn’t feel like it.
I had a reasonably busy day of activity so I felt no need to do this extra little bit. It wouldn’t have been like I was letting myself down in any way.
things were going well with the fat loss.
and I was feeling a little stiff and sore after having climbed a small hill 3-4 times with armloads of wood from a tree that had blown over 18 months back.
there was still some large gum branches that I wanted to get but hadn’t yet.
it was quite hard going to hand saw them so I made a plan to put 200 licks with the saw with each trip. I planned to go down and up with about 4 loads so no way the branch would last 800 licks – no way.
as it happened I was able to make 2 cuts in the branch with that many and carried 2/3 of it out leaving the remainder for tomorrow.
I was pretty sweaty afterwards and so walked with the kids for a swim at the in-laws pool. It’s only 400m away so a nice stroll.
the water was bloody freezing so I didn’t last long. I got to watch 20mims of rugby with the father-in-law which was nice.
then it was time to get the dinner on.
this is when I really started to feel the effects of a busy day, sitting down with my feet up once the food was cooking nicely and one of the daughters had the stir fry sorted.
so I was sitting comfortably thinking that I would/might walk at 7.30pm but not really wanting to.
i remember thinking that there was about 45-50mins so maybe I would feel more like it in that time.
but somehow I just got out of the chair bang on 7.30pm
just a like that
I slipped my shoes on which we at the door and I was off down the farm track without thinking about it.
It was a(nother) beautiful sunset and I felt privileged to live here, getting to experience this on a regular basis.
I am grateful to have started to bring my subconscious to the fight against diabetes and general poor health that comes with excessive body fat including a large waist.
It kinda reminds me of a Star Wars moment …
