Day 209: Maintaining

So both Alex and I have been bad about updating the blog recently, please don’t be mad.  In part this has to do with a slump that I have been in the last week or so.

Part of this has to do with the whole idea of maintaining versus losing weight.  When Alex and I were both losing weight together it was easy to stay on track and see the result throughout the week and be happy with the loss at the end of the week.  Now that I am in the maintaining phase, it is harder some weeks to belly up to the line and continue eating healthy.

Last week I didn’t fall off the bandwagon but I did not eat the way I have been teaching myself too and I could see the results.  I didn’t feel as good as I do when I eat well, and I got a couple of headaches throughout the week.  That is all it took to show me how the way I used to eat was making me sick and was one of the reasons I wasn’t as happy as I am now.

This week has started off well and I am back down to the weight zone I was in before I slipped.  The whole process has reinforced one important point, that the way I used to eat is what was making me fat.   This may seem like an obvious fact, but when you see it on the scale it is hard to deny.

Feeling good and moving forward!

Last year was a breakthrough year for me personally, as far as writing was concerned. After years of wanting to finish a novel. Making it a resolution each and every December only to get to the end of the year with nothing. 2018 was the year of change. Two major things that happened. First was to let go of the absurd notion that in order to put words on the page I had to be inspired by my muse. This idea was thrown in the trash where it joined crumpled wads of unfinished drafts. Second was the realization that to finish a novel I needed a process in order to write consistently. There was some initial trial and error in setting up a schedule that worked into my life but by the end of 2018 I had finished two books and was heading into the second round of edits on my first. What I want to do in this blog is share the experience of being a new writer by exploring my writing process as it develops. I’ll also be posting some of my short fiction and possibly book reviews time permitting.
