I've been working very hard getting a property ready to rent out. Painting. Cleaning. Packing. Moving. Squatting. Climbing. Sweeping. Pruning. Rinsing. Caulking. Hiring. Waiting. Hurting. Soaking. Sleeping. Sighing.
I keep telling myself this will be over soon! But there are times I don't think it will ever be over. The progress is too slow. The work is too hard. It's too much for me! And then I realize that losing weight is very similar to this project I've been working on. It requires consistent effort. Sometimes I really struggle with being hungry or wiped out from exercise. Occasionally I see glimpses of progress, but it all seems to go too slow and I can't see the end.
And yet, I know the property project will get, if not finished, at least to a point where we can put it up for rent. In a way, it will never be finished, because that's life. Just keep on doin' what you need to do. That's my life in eating now too...just keep on doing what I need to do. Even when I reach my goal weight, I won't be finished taking care of myself. I might get tired along the way and I guess that's okay. I just hope my butt will take up a little less room when I collapse on the occasional rock.
