3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Of course I have no regrets about moving my Practice to my home, but a noted side-effect was to put on weight! I am not getting the exercise I used to get. This to be honest does not bother me personally - I am fully mobile ad healthy for my age, but I am conscious that as a therapist it doesn't convey the best image.
I also know as a therapist that if I wanted to drop a few stone that there would need to be permanent changes to mylifestyle - and to be honest I love my lifestyle as it is! I have never been happier! However, I am going to impose some new simple rules - no eating after 7pm, no eating between meals, and not eating alone if I'm not hungry.
In addition, I'll give my intention a slight tweak - it will be peace of mind with a reasonably lean frame. If weight starts dropping off as a result of these changes I'll make a publicity exercise out of it.

Eddie Izzard - Languages
Some dogs can smell dead bodies under water, where termites are hiding,
and natural gas buried under 40 feet of dirt. They can even detect
cancer that is too small to be detected by a doctor and can find
lung cancer by sniffing a person’s breath.
9. ZEN WISDOM
Each person possesses a precious inner treasure of infinite worth. To
remain unaware of this and stumble about in spiritual poverty is a
tragic waste. In contrast, a person fully awakened to the jewel-like
dignity of their own life is capable of truly respecting that treasure
