What To Do?

I’m sitting here at the end of the day on January 3 of the new year, wondering what to do. I mean, I know what I NEED to do, especially after being derailed by  excuse, excuse, blah blah blah. The “what to do” part comes here, my blog. Do I get back to writing it? sharing the battles with my self control, emotions, daily life, and weight? or do I forgo the blog? Don’t get me wrong, I really love the writing, but I enjoy sharing more than just the diet “stuff.”  It was the diet successes and setbacks that garnered the most responses.

Honest towards ourselves and towards anyone else who is our friend; brave towards the enemy; magnanimous towards the defeated; polite always: this is how the four cardinal virtues want us to act.
— Friedrich Nietzsche

So, as I wade back into the diet and weight loss pool, and get back to where I was when I last posted so long ago, I still have my reasons for wanting to be healthy. I still have my goals. I still have myself. I just really want to have the strength in myself to follow thru this time, and not push myself so hard that I burn out, and not listen to the nay-sayers.

Dig within. Within is the wellspring of Good; and it is always ready to bubble up, if you just dig.
— Marcus Aurelius

  1. Think about what your goals are/were. Did you write about the diet to have something to blog about or was the blog about the diet ? We are always reevaluating our goals. Subcociously or not. Eating that cookie says the goal is not important. Stepping back to the blog is your call to help. “I am lost, please help me.” Tomorrow find 5 minutes to exercise and 5 minutes to blog. Start with baby steps. You can do it.

  2. It’s so funny because I feel the same way- It seems so easy to make excuses. For me in 2012 it was, “Oh, I busted my ankle- I can’t possibly work out!”. My fave excuse of 2013 would be something like “Well, I already ate like crazy for lunch; I may as well go for this candy bar/milkshake/whatever.” I finally reached a point where I’ve decided to set goals, and if I get derailed, accept the consequences and just keep trying.
    As for the blogging I say no matter what, if it keeps you motivated and focused, blog away and don’t stress too much over perceived traffic. Maybe do the occasional poll to see what your readers would enjoy and cater to them, but this should be YOUR outlet. 🙂 Best of luck and keep positive!


    1. Thank you, sincerely, for that. I am not foolish enough to think I’ll breeze though this (haven’t succeeded in that yet), but the blogging does help me, so I appreciate your words, tremendously.

I would enjoy your thoughts and comments
