The Gut, The Butt, the Tightness or maybe spare fabric
(the weight, the waist and BMI)

Clean the Nest

A bird analogy
Bird’s don’t clean the nest
Bird Nesting Boxes are cleaned occasionally
Nest is an accepted term for home

So Clean your home, clean your place, clean up your act
And by year end final attain showpiece status (for the coach house)

Issues of not being a good house keeper
needing a maid service
having a small complex niche of a place

Throwing it Away
Buying Less
Comparable to Losing Weight
Eating Less, Exercising More
(Less if More) minimalism
White Space

And Clean (Clear) your Mind and Preconceived Notions
The baggage that you carry from living long on this earth
The reluctant to change

To not be the angry old man, but channel wisdom
to be entertained and astounded by change
not always needing to respond

To be at peace
stop fighting


Maybe not total success,
but change and progress


Run every day (Get Up and Get Out, Everyday)
Commute, not only is it good to go into work,
but a regular commute is good fitness
and a Class before Work

Stand on the Scale and Monitor the Weight
Early Swim is a Great Opportunity
Up and In the Pool Early
A Warm Show and Show your Progress on the Scale
The Magic Spin Class

Not so much time reclining
Do something else, but don’t do nothing
You stall-out like an airplane (losing momentum)
Minimize the Zero
The 3:00 Walk
The PM Class

Clean the Nest
Change Habits
A little time each day
An end of year Showpiece

Green Hunter Fleck
Motivation and Mantra

Use the Scale, the Green Hunter Images and the Mirror

Swim and Scale
(Watching the Weight)

You are what you eat (and drink)
The Bread that you love and the artistry and baking
Delicious Cheleda
Pork Belly, Cheese, Sausage, Pizza, Spam
The Bagel and Ice Cream

Regular Activity (vs Sloth) (vs “Zeroes”)

Bank Busters (Budget)

Large Expenditures which Bust the Bank

Spring Marathon

Spring New York Trip

Dual Fall Marathons

Triple Challenge

Christmas Travel

Eating Cardboard (Too Many Tickets)
Especially evening concerts in the winter

Alliance Francaise, Sling, Babbel, Amazon Music,
Is it even working?

Occasional Expenses that may be worth it:
1st Class Travel to New York City (when you fly first class, you don’t need a rewards card)

1st Row at the Opera (once-a-year Saturday Matinee, right behind the conductor
a transforming experience
You can see their teeth, You can see the Conductor sweat, as the bottom margin of his hairline is saturated
A glimpse into the orchestra pit
Actually they are not uncomfortably close, the singers are on the opposite side of the orchestra pit

Hotel Suites instead of Hotel Rooms
(sometimes the marginal cost is only marginal)
