I’m not sure if this post belongs here or on my main blog. That’s but one of the many problems with trying to maintain multiple blogs! The biggest issue, of course, is finding time to update them. A few years ago blogging was, very truly, my life. The times I was away from my computer I was either mentally composing posts or stewing about reactions to previous posts. I thought about Tumblr constantly, and almost everything I experienced was considered fodder for my blog. Now, I find I have to really push myself to post each day.
The blog in particular has become tricky to keep current, because I simply don’t have constant updates to share. I go to the Farmer’s Market every Saturday and pick up, with a few variations, the same things each time. I wash my face with honey now. It works amazingly. I take hot yoga classes twice a week. I feel great. How often can I possibly update the status of these things?!
More than that, though, I find myself (oh man please forgive me I do know how this will sound) wanting to just live in the moment. I want to experience my world, my life and just…leave it there. I don’t want to record every minute detail of my existence. Why should I? Isn’t it enough to make a beautiful loaf of bread and then quietly savour the fruits of my labour? Must I then blog about it? I don’t really want to anymore.
I like the idea of sharing my experiences, in the interest of giving other likeminded individuals tips on achieving our goals for living differently. And certainly, as I have new things to share, I will. But barring that, you can expect this blog to be fairly quiet.
In terms of updates….
For now, my weight loss goals are totally on track. I broke 140 last week, weighing in at 139 for the first time in eons. I’m still trying to get to about 130 in the next 4-6 weeks, and then (I hope) I can just relax and try to maintain that weight and gain strength. Outside of one shampoo and condition at the spa for Mother’s Day, my hair hasn’t been touched by nasty chemical laden products since March 1. It looks and feels amazing. Using honey on my face has not just cleared my skin, but actually given me that smooth, soft, glow that drugstore products promise. That means I can wear less make-up, which may be the closest I get to giving it up. I still haven’t found a great bread recipe, but I won’t give up until I do. I have, however, started milling my own flour.
And that’s that. Still living better, still loving it – just not needing to blog about it ad infinitum. Okay? Okay! And that’s that.
