Down to the Wire
I was so close to throwing in the blogging towel the other day and walking away from this site.
I haven’t written a thing for 2 months, my WordPress domain was set to expire on the 28th, and it takes time to think up content. It seemed easier to just ride out the rest of the year and to let the treadmill diaries disappear into the sunset.
And then, at the last second, I realized that the reason I feel it takes too much time to keep up the site is that I started over thinking it. What do readers want to see? What should I write about this week? Do I have pictures that go with the post? And so on..
I started this site as a record of my progress against my goals ..and then I decided to take on more than that. No offense – but I don’t care if anyone but me reads these posts. The purpose is to write things down, to let them serve as lessons, and to use them to steer progress down new (and hopefully good) life paths.
So, basically, it’s an electronic journal. It’s as simple as that. And, if I keep to that, it won’t be hard. It’ll be quick and the posts can serve their intended purpose. If people want to read them, great. If not, that’s okay too.
So there, you have it. The treadmill diaries will move into 2013 and will serve to chronicle the happenings of my year.
Speaking of 2013, I’ve decided to make a few other commitments:
- I’m back to using the bodybugg and will until I reach my goal of fitting into all the clothes in my closet. It was off my arm for weeks because of a bad strap. If I kept it off any longer, I doubt it would have come back and I need it.
- I signed myself up for Weight Watchers – starting today. I’ve tried to exercise and eat right on my own and have been on a major plateau for months. It’s worked for me before so I’m guessing it can work for me again. I want to get back to my 2010 pre-pregnancy size and I will. I’m less concerned with the number I end up at.
- I want to focus on living a good life and being a good person. This means enjoying the family, the moments, making good memories, continuing to experience/learn new things and to do some good deeds (big and small).
And, of course, to be there for these guys:
Happy New Year!
