    Finally, no more company or family obligations for a few weeks. We can get started on home repairs etc.

    I am looking forward to the start of the "Building Incredible Willpower" online course tomorrow.

    I still haven't made it back to Paleo eating. Too many dinners out etc.

    Hope I didn't freak anyone out yesterday, just wanted to put down thoughts about why this health thing is so hard for me. It is about much more than food.

    Yesterday's entry was beautiful, P. Thank you for sharing. I have no doubt you will make progress through your journey.

    Excited to hear how your Willpower class goes!

    Interesting aside. My DH is a direct descendant of Buddha. We aren't Buddhists, but lots of good stuff there.

    Well, showing my ignorance here, but I thought "Buddha" was actually the Buddhists name for God. I had no idea that he was a real person. I need to do some reading.

    P, love following the journey.

    Thank you so much for sharing your story with us! You are an amazing person and we are lucky to have you here.

    Siddhartha Gautauma was indeed a real person. He lived roughly 500 BCE.

    I'm with demuralist. Had no idea Buddha was a real person, although he seemed very wise. Lol

    This weekend I re-read "Make Shift Happen" by Dean Dwyer in preparation for taking the online course with him.

    It always surprises me how I have to be in the right space to hear something in order for it to make an impact. I loved the book the first time I read it. It is about making powerful change in your life by taking small steps. The first time I read it, I was deep in mourning for my Mom and couldn't handle the idea of making the mental shifts necessary to beat my food (and other) issues once and for all. I also was not ready to hear that there wasn't a miracle cure...that I would have to put systems in place to solve my problems and then work those systems...forever.

    I now realize that left to their own devices, without control systems, my body and mind will do what is easiest and most pleasurable, not necessarily what is best for health and well being. That brings me back to the Buddhist journey of self improvement.

    It is not just me, however. I believe all humans need to have a plan and a purpose for their lives. Yes, some of us are more damaged than others, but even the most perfect of us could use some work. Heck, the Dalai Lama has said that even he has not reached enlightenment.

    wow Paula.. love you girl. It can be very liberating to free all those words (translate worries, concerns, etc.) out.

    The course I am taking with Dean Dwyer is called "Building Incredible Willpower" Yes it is a paid course. ($100). I like and trust Dean, so I am willing to put out the money.

    Today was Day 1
    The recap...
    You can teach yourself anything.
    80-90% percent of our problems could be solved by putting a workable system in place for dealing with these issues.
    Systems can be learned.

    Examples from my own life...
    Flylady is a system I have used successfully to keep my home in order.
    Paleo is a system of eating that works for me.
    Fitness 666 has a body weight exercise system that is easy for me to follow.
    My new system of dealing with email clutter is to delete 50 a day.

    Phew, that's a lot of emails! I get some newsletter items throughout the week, regular correspondence with Hulky while we're at work during the day, and sometimes an email from my mom about something, but that's about it. This isn't anything work-related, though.

    Currently trying to figure out WTF to eat (for IBS-C).
