In the wake of my imminent 2-year Sparkversary at the end of this month, I've become aware of several things that I've gotten a bit misdirected on. It doesn't feel like I've fallen off the proverbial wagon, but just that my healthy two-year track has begun to start making the beginning of what can easily be a U-turn. Yikes! Rather than let that happen, I thought I'd blog about each issue that I need a direction correction on. Each one will begin with this paragraph and lead into the topic of the day. FYI, B=before two years ago and healthy lifestyle change, D-during these past two years of healthy eating, and N=now and changes that have to be made to correct returning bad habits. Not all blogs will use these abbreviations, but just in case, it'll save me the explanation.
What better topic to start with than blogging? Wow, for the better part of the two years, I was a daily blogger. At some point, I thought it didn't really matter whether I blogged or not. Why bother? I can tell the difference when I blog and when I don't.
It holds me more accountible and keeps me grounded and in-touch with what's going on with food and fitness, rather than just staying inside my head. I also have to remember that, although it's nice to get comments, these are meant for our own benefit. Which means that I have to let go of the part of me that knows there will be a public eye and might influence me to edit accordingly.
Part of stopping the blog writing, like everything else, is a bit of laziness creeping in and not wanting to always come up with topics. Will try my best to stay connected.
Wishing all a wonderful 2011.
