Just like it was hard for me to give up calorie counting and daily weighing and completely obsessing about that stuff... it would be hard for me to give up my blog.
And, unlike the obsessive calorie counting, I think my blog is really healthy for me! I don't devote TOO much time to blogging (I still give my other daily tasks/wants/needs priority) but I love reading my blogroll and getting comments on my own blog every day. It keeps me sane, helps me work through my anxieties, and makes me feel totally NOT alone in this struggle!
I just can't help but think I've gotten boring :D
But maintenance IS a little more boring than weight loss - there is no drama! There is just steady weight, daily exercise, clean food, moderated treats. Repeated daily for good health :D
I imagine my blog will change in the future - especially if I am able to get pregnant later this year as I would like to be. That is a WHOLE new world of finding a healthy balance I will have to tackle, and I imagine I won't be perfect at it, haha! And if I am not able to get pregnant, well, I suppose we will have to see what turns life will take then :)
I also will continue to talk a bit about how working on your spirit and mind are INTEGRAL parts of this healthy weight journey... I would not be successful right now if I hadn't purposefully changed some mental patterns that have been holding me back my whole life.
Didn't weigh in this morning, I slept late and rolled out of bed for some coffee and a dog walk.
On the agenda for the day: more job searching, working on my dissertation, a little yoga, more coffee!!
Ok, my friends, till next time when I promise to have my thoughts together a little better, have a more concise topic. I'm in a rambling, stream of consciousness sort of mood lately!
