Why Do I Do These Things To Myself?

I’ve been thinking… Yeah, yeah, I know… I probably shouldn’t do that… but I already did it, so here we are.

I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions. I think if you’re going to start something, you should start immediately. Don’t wait. Start today. Thing is… if I start something today… It’s the 31st of December… so technically I’m starting something that rings in the new year.

Does that make it a new year’s resolution? Maybe. But given that I’m starting on December 31st… I’m giving myself a pass. This isn’t a resolution; it’s a commitment that begins today. (Please don’t point out the definition of either of those words, nor synonyms. No need to state the obvious. Please let me pretend. 😉 )

Anyway, that leads me to this….

I plan, fingers crossed, to write one blog post a day in 2020.

Now I know you’re probably thinking, yeah right. (Deep down inside, I’m thinking the same thing. Don’t feel bad.)

But! Let me just say this. Two years ago I went on a weight loss journey and committed to working out an hour a day, seven days a week, no exceptions. For five months, the entire time it took to lose 40 pounds, I did just that. Every. Single. Day. No matter what. I worked out. Every once in a while, because life gets in the way, I’d have to cut the time down to 30 minutes, but I never missed a day.

If I could do that then, I can do this now. No excuses.

Now I would like to add here, I still work out regularly, I didn’t just quit. The goals changed once I reached the initial goal I’d set out to achieve. It’s a different amount of time and a different amount of days, and I don’t stick to it quite as rigidly. I sometimes switch or flips days, stuff like that, but I’m still committed to regular exercise, and I still  make it happen.

If I can work out self-discipline for that, I can make it work for this.

So I’m going to try! Give it my best shot, at least. Let’s hope my best is decent, eh?

Heather.

      Haha, I totally understand. I don’t blame you one bit. I may come to regret it myself! I’mma give it a try though, and hopefully, if nothing else, I’ll become a little more dedicated to this blog in the process.

      Fingers crossed! 🤞
