“a general mildly offensive rant that possibly doesn’t go anywhere in particular”
We were talking.
It seemed general opinion that I have
‘STRONG POLITICAL VIEWS”
That’s news to me.
I never find myself completely aligned
to any of the ‘main’ parties.
Buddhist-Nazi actually not accurate,
in the whole,
I would have certainly done without the Xenophobia and the for a start, (but I’m OK with the haircuts)
And the needless slaughter of millions of innocents.
But the Nazis were the first to ban vivisection…
Started the anti-tobacco movement made enormous strides in animal conservation
Whilst still being the most evil collective in modern history.
Bloody love Buddhism.
I’m no expert – will report back.
I tried religion.
I mean, I THREW myself into that for a long while. Even helped people learn about it.
But it ultimately didn’t work out with me and the big fella.
I won’t post publicly about that but feel free to ask privately.
(Please don’t pray for my soul -, save that for something that has a fart in hells chance of being effective)
The thing I have noticed,
and about people
and about events
is that things are never as cut and dried as all that.
I like some things that each of the main Political Parties say,
And I detest other things that each of them say.
So voting is important, but tricky.
Faith – great
(for scientific reasons I am happy to PM you with, but not post, out of respect)
Religion – not so much.
There was a Yummy Mummy story this week which had half of us bawling our eyes out.
This wonderful lady of faith, knew of a young lad
who had nothing.
No support, and nothing he should have.
And she noticed his bike was falling apart
(This lady has some very testing things of her own to deal with which she does elegantly – and with a huge pretty smile, whenever I see her)
So helped to find him a bike.
A lovely blue one.
And his eyes filled up at the generosity.
“he squeaked out a thank you” and was overwhelmed by what people had done.
Dammit – filling up again….
And I have seen some really mercenary manipulative things all in the name of religion.
And then there’s the elegant, kind-hearted lady – living it.
She did what she reckoned was right.
And it made me think.
It is perfectly OK to think what you think.
To not conform to a ‘label’, to like what you like to believe what you believe
without fear of what other people might think.
I worry sometimes that I am too moderate about fitness.
I read emails every day from people who believe dairy is poison.
That gluten is the work of Satan.
But I won’t lie
I love making bread and eating really good cheese.
I am not going to be a hypocrite.
I am healthy.
I am moderate.
I am writing this with a small glass of Prosecco on the go.
Of course that is going to mess up the processes of the other systems of my body and impede metabolism.
But I am in my bikini, in the garden, (possibly being perved on by the neighbours) and the sun is shining, and surely life would be bit dull if I couldn’t even do this!
I could, for profit purposes impose an ‘impossible to sustain’ regime on those that work with us.
Lose a stone in 2 weeks.
Consume only juice, weigh your food.
Well that’s just mental…but possible.
Feck that. I would never keep it up.
I wouldnt expect anyone else to.
I used to feel guilty about that, but I don’t any more.
I see people easily adopting subtle additions and tweaks to their lives,
Cutting out the nachos,
eating lovely fresh veg – as much as they want. Learning how to love great fresh food more than the old beige stuff they used to have.
And I see it work.
and I know it’s for the long haul.
That’s the way I do things.
That’s what I BELIEVE is right.
I haven’t got a snappy name or label for it.
Because it doesn’t need one.
Same way as Buddhist Nazi is a pointless label.
(Someone called me both names last week – I found the juxtaposition rather delicious)
It’s just, like these blog posts are… what I ‘reckon’.
I like a laugh.
I can’t be bothered to exercise for its own sake. It has to be a laugh.
Lazy, I know.
With regard to getting in shape, you have to do what you reckon.
Do you want to ‘feel the burn’? Or do you like a laugh?
Do you want to weigh your protein powder or ENJOY your lunch?
Do you want to strive for a 10K run? Or enjoy a night out with the girls. Or both? Or neither?
Decide what you reckon, what you will maintain.
And sod anyone who tells you
that your way is wrong.
If our way is your way – there is the lowest priced way to work with us available until May 30th.
And other than that – do your thing, your way – and have a great day.
