Day 8: Slow and Steady

24 Jul

“Many different weapons are directed against us. Some of them have already stuck into us, others are hurtling toward us and about to arrive, while some that were intended for others strike us a glancing blow. We should not be surprised about any of the things that we are born to face, “Many different weapons are directed against us. Some of them have already stuck into us, others are hurtling toward us and about to arrive, while some that were intended for others strike us a glancing blow. We should not be surprised about any of the things that we are born to face, things that no one should complain about because they are the same for everyone. I mean it: they are the same, because even the things people escape are things they could have suffered. A law is fair not when everyone has experience of it but when it is applicable to everyone. Tell your mind to be fair, and let us pay the taxes of our mortality without complaining”.

– Seneca, Letters 107.5-6

I got on the scale this morning and found I lost another .2 pound. It seems consistent with what has happened in the past yet I feel impatient. I’ve only been doing the reboot for a week and I shouldn’t have such high expectations. In the past after ten days or so the loss would stall, frustration would kick in and I would cheat. I’m aware of that and will push through it. I plan to give this a minimum of one hundred days. At that time I will fully evaluate what I’m doing and make adjustments.

On the life front my father- in-law’s house sold today. One less distraction and more free time. I’ll be investing more time into the gym and hopefully if the humidity ever dials back, get back on the bike.

Things are going well. I have no real complaints. Another busy day with the realtor finalizing things and tying up lose ends.
