I have been struggling to figure out why I am not blogging, why I am not focusing on a daily commitment to exercise and water (water, water, water!!!) I've been this way all year... When I drive, it is on my mind. When I stop for a moment, it is on my mind. Why and how did I lose my focus? Why am I avoiding the blogging which seems to help me the most?
ARGH!!! I can feel the answer right below the surface... Am I going to just let myself finally say it? As soon as I say it... I can act. I think today is the day.
Here's the deal. I do like it when I am out and running or cycling. I do like it when I am dedicated to good water drinking. I do like it when I am focused on each meal's creativity and balance.
And here's the other deal: when I do not do those things, I actually make a choice not to do them. WHAT?! That just seems dang odd. To be frank, I really think it is about being lazy. I just get lazy. Yup. There. I said it. I am lazy. There's really nothing more to it. Nothing more complicated than that.
I have strengths that when I tap into them, I can really accomplish a lot. One strength: I can hyper focus! I actually love that about myself but there is a downside to this same strength. Often when I hyper focus, I lose steam. Then I turn around and see how much I expended in energy to meet a goal and I get lazy. I think I actually might eve be a bit scared that I can't expend that much energy again. Hmmm.
Now the trick will be to overcome this lazy streak and get back into a rhythm that I know does me good all the way around. Sometimes, I just want to chuckle and give myself a kick in the pants!!
