Grunt Work Part 2

Day 13 in Donna’s Disney Dream

This march to Disney is an exciting adventure.  But I am noticing how my body is fighting me.  It wants all the things it used to get:

  1. sweets
  2. sitting around doing nothing
  3. salty snacks

I refuse to give my body what it thinks it wants.  Why?  Because I don’t want to live in a body in this shape anymore.  Don’t get me wrong.  I’m not ready to check out yet.  I just want to be in healthier shape.

So here’s the plan:

Tonight Mike and I will go back to the church and put all the Damascus Road (our contemporary band) equipment , platforms and chairs back into the sanctuary.  Major grunt work!  I will do as much as I possibly can.  Then I will sit down panting until I recover.  Then I will do some more.  And repeat…

Many are the times when Mike has gone to the church to do the grunt work alone. He never complains.  He is a gracious and giving man.  Well, I’m not sending him to do that anymore.  I will work by his side.  He will work rings around me, no doubt.  But I’ll save him a few steps.  Take that Fitbit.  🙂

Thank you for reading.  Meet you at the Kingdom.

BTW: We had leftover boiled vegetables from last nights dinner.  I mixed them into  2 eggs and made a scramble.  With my rye toast, it was a delicious and satisfying breakfast.
