To Blog or Not to Blog, that is the question

A question that is driving me crazy. Only because I am letting it drive me crazy.

From past successes I know only too well how important it is to physically track my food and exercise along with notes of my progress. All of the good, bad, and ugly notes. Some days there are truly ugly notes. However, I am struggling with all parts of the three things that make me successful in taking care of myself.

I know that I am not the first person and I will not be the last person with these struggles. The question is, how much of my struggles and successes do I want to make public? The second question is how much of my struggles and successes do I want to make public to me.

I guess I just start with each post and see where the post leads me to write. Only I know my words before they are written. The point is to keep writing.


Head to body, "Go to the gym!" Body and sleeping dogs to head, "Nooooooooooo!"

First five seconds of being awake this morning I am already in the middle of an argument. The last few months it has been very difficult mentally to get to the gym. Which means I have not been going. Mostly it is because of burnout. I am still very active in my fitness group and I get large amounts of exercise there and playing with my dogs. I know the gym is important to keep the core strong. But for now, mentally it is too much extra that takes away from other needed free time.

With the change in seasons it is my hope that it will become easier to go to the gym because it is dark for pretty much all of my free hours and exercising outdoors alone is not much of an option. Today will be my first day back to the gym in over a month. I am determined to go. After I leave the gym I will be one day closer to re-establishing my habit.


I think I have found my logon routine for Spark People

The information here is too overwhelming to try and do it all. I know the basics of what I need are in a food diary and an exercise diary. I have set up some additional personal goals. The other information I can view is too much if I am not looking for something specific.

I think I am going to like this site in the long run.


Sacfit Day

An unofficial workout at the Pond this morning. The workout was 10 miles. Tomorrow is the Buffalo Stampede which most of the group is doing. A number are not and we were all at the Pond. For the most part it was a decent workout. The previous couple of weeks were better. I know this week I did not really keep a good diet so I paid for it today.

Still trying to figure out where I am going to park in a journal for personal notes.


Late nights equal poor choices

Did not get home from downtown until almost 7pm tonight. Even though there is food in my refrigerator I stopped at Taco Bell on the way home. Have to learn to think that it is just as easy to cook something at home as it is to stop at a fast food place. And it is healthier to cook at home.
