Almost in the words of the great Louis Armstrong, I would just like to say what a wonderful Word Press world we live in. This community is a warm and caring place with so many like minded souls all trying to find their way on this hectic road that is life.
I must confess to recently losing my way. My dedication to my blog has dropped, my dedication to my training has dropped (well, fallen off of a cliff if I am honest) and my dedication to eating healthily has definitely waned along with them.
Yes, I am still walking but not the huge distances I once was. Yes I am still blogging but to my mind not at the same level I started out at and yes I still eat well, but some rubbish has crept in alongside the heathy and I am feeling as though I am letting myself down somewhat.
And that is where you guys have come in and do your very best to keep me afloat when I am currently feeling like the plug has been lost and my little blogging boat is taking on water faster than I can bail it out! I appreciate all of the kind words that you all offer and take strength from the support that you give.
I now realise that I am on a much longer and much harder journey than I had once thought, having to address some extremely difficult points and make some (what are turning out to be much harder than I had anticipated) changes as I do so. I need to get right with myself again. As I said, I have lost my way somewhat. Maybe I need to take things back to basics a little. Maybe I need to simply just write what I feel and not what I think I might be expected. Maybe I need a complete change of tack. Maybe I need to stop the food and activity parts of my blog all together and simply write about what I have achieved along with writing about how I am feeling and whatever other banal idea’s I might have.
I actually do wonder if the activity part of my blog is one of the reasons I am not going to the gym (along with feeling crap from the viral thing I suppose). Maybe its because of all of the paraphernalia I have to carry and wear in order to simply just work out. Maybe its because I have to write down what my exercises were, how many calories I burned etc etc. Maybe it is simply because I am just a lazy bugger….!
Therefore things need to change. Not necessarily wholesale but certainly for the better. I need to address my tissues and I need to take my life back for me where it has been missing for the past several weeks.
To that end, I now promise to do my best by all of it and would ask if you can be patient with me as I start once again to find my way and get myself back on track.
I think that is all there is to say today apart from one more heartfelt thank you 🙂
FOOD DIARY:Tuesday 27th October 2015
|Qty||Measure||Food||Calories (gr)||Protein (gr)||Carbs (gr)||Fat (gr)|
|Breakfast||1||Mini Muffin||Egg, Cottage Cheese and Ham Mini Muffin||130||18||4||4|
|Lunch||2||50gms||Mothers Pride Slices Dry Toast||230||9||43.8||1.6|
|1||Small Bowl||Homemade Chicken Curry||175||19||13||7|
So the more sharp eyed of you will have noticed that I am not tracking my food and calories from two days before the posting day, but instead I am now writing the diary for the day before, just as I do with my exercise and Jawbone tracking. As I said above I am not quite sure how long I will continue this for but I am thinking that changing things around for a bit might be the kickstart that I need to get this blog back on track along with the authors mindset….
Stay out of the fridge.
