As you may (or may not) have noticed, I’ve decided to take a little break from my sweet blog. It was premeditated. I’m not too busy to blog and I’ve had lots of things to say, but I needed a break.
I’ve read over my blog many times in the last 16 days and I’ve noticed a few things. First, my blog is very negative. I don’t want this to be a negative place. I want it to be fun, entertaining and maybe encouraging. Second, every time I wanted to blog in the last 16 days, I was in a negative place. Third, I hate listening to people always bitching and do nothing to change their situation.
So I’m starting over. But not deleting all of the past because, in life, you can’t delete your past. It’s always with you. You learn from it or dwell in it – your choice. Today, I’m starting over and learning from it.
I’ve also decided that I set incredibly lofty goals for myself. And when I set said goal and do not meet them, I begin on this downward spiral that just sucks! For everyone! Including you, sweet blog! I’m not saying lofty goals are not good. I love a good goal. But those have to be attainable. Losing 50 pounds in a month – not attainable unless you’re on the Biggest Loser. Running a marathon and not training – not attainable, especially since you cannot run a mile. Taking a nap on Sunday afternoon – totally attainable, and happening in a few short minutes.
Baby Steps – Week 1
July 22 – July 28
- 1. Write down everything I eat or drink – without judgment. No diet changes, just write it all down and be truthful.
- Go to CrossFit 2-3 times this week. I have a free pass for one week and I plan on using it.
- Do the best I can and have fun on Saturday during the Color Run 5k this weekend. No regrets; no time goals; no plans – just finish and have fun.
So there you go. Hopefully, you’ll stick with me as I figure this out.
What is one small goal/habit you’d like to focus on over the next 7 days?
