Life, classes and other daily responsibilities have kept me away from blogging from the past two days. Just two days, but it feels like I’ve been away for a lifetime!
Anyone who has known me since childhood knows that I’m kind of bad at continuing things. Whether it was keeping a diary, exercising, keeping a budget, or having a set schedule of doing housework, it didn’t last for more than a couple of months. And the person who was most judgmental and disappointed in me was… me.
I’ve heard that it’s tough for people to change and, after living for almost 42 years, I believe that to be true… but not impossible to do. I have hope, mainly because I’ve proven to myself that it IS possible, even though there may be times when I slip a little.
As far as exercise, I’ve been trying my best to stick to it, walk the dog every day and have lost almost 84 pounds from my peak weight in my late 20’s. (Half of that was lost in the past four years… not bad, right?)
In regards to writing a diary, blogging has sort of replaced that… and I’ve been writing a post ALMOST every day since the 31st of January of this year. Now when I don’t have the time to write a post, it feels like something from the day is missing. (Like skipping breakfast or not brushing your teeth before going to bed.) Writing here has become such a part of the daily routine and I’m so thankful to those who have commented and “liked” and are “following”.
Here’s hoping I’ll continue to find interesting things to talk about and share with everyone.
Sending love and smiles from southern Japan! 🙂
