I think it is important to get the order right. Devotion to God comes first, and everything we do should be for the glory of God.
I agree that it is our duty as Catholics to take care of our bodies just as it is our duty to take care of the Earth. I also hope that I will increase my willpower and that I will be strengthened in my devotions by practising moderation and perseverance in taking care of myself. I'm just praying that my means will not become a goal and that I will never forget that everything is a gift from God. I can do nothing by myself!
