Finding My Place

Between life in general and the constant changes in the writing world, I’ve been pretty burned out when it comes to blogging. For nearly seven and a half years, I’ve tried to find my ‘niche,’ the perfect subjects to write about here … and nothing has held my interest for any length of time.

A couple of days ago, I had an epiphany of sorts. One subject has consistently held my interest and that’s in the better health area. That I can totally get excited about. And since I plan to dedicate the next year or so to getting healthier, I’ve decided I’m going to share that journey here.

Yes, folks, I’ve come to a fork in the road…

With hypothyroidism, gluten/wheat issues, and two and a half years following an auto accident when walking and moving was so painful I didn’t do anymore than I had to, I’m in serious need of an overhaul – in the nutrition and fitness areas.

Between now and this coming spring, I’ll be taking monthly progress photos and then in April, I’ll share them all in a blog post. Why April? Because my birthday is on the 24th and it’s the date I’ve set to meet several goals (which I’ll share in another post).

That’s not all I’ll blog about. You know me. I can’t stick with one subject. Ever. So I’ll still be sharing progress reports on my writing, stuff about my family, and anything else that strikes my fancy. But for consistency, and to kind of back myself into a corner, my April 24th goals are going to be occupying most of my thoughts.

Following the Trim Healthy Mama eating plan (80+ percent of the time) will kill a few birds with one stone. No gluten, unless the sour dough bread I make agrees with me (PLEASE agree with me!). No sugar, which I believe is giving me pre-diabetes symptoms. And lower carbs, which make me crash about thirty minutes after eating them.

So win/win/win for me all the way around. I’m actually very excited about the changes I’m planning to make – and I look forward to feeling better. Much better.

When I was thinking about a song that would fit my change in attitude, this seemed perfect (other than the fact that I’m not a guy!). I’m not sure why because I’ve never seen the movie but here it is…

Okay. That’s it for now. ‘See’ you soon. 🙂

    I think it’s fine to write a variety of topics. A topic that will bring one person here might be different from what another person will want to read about. This way, you’re widening your net (so to speak).

    I love the health posts. It keeps me motivated to eat better. (Sadly, I broke down and had two frappes over the week, including today. I was doing so well, too.) It is HARD to be good! LOL I totally relate to your experience.

    Also, I love that picture!!

      LOL. I know. Fork in the road. It made me chuckle when I saw it. 🙂

      I’m glad those posts motivate you. That’s why I want to write them. I’ve done so bad with gluten the past three years, and just making bad food choices in general. I figure if I make my efforts public, I’ll be more likely to stick to them. And to a regular exercise program again. So here’s hoping we both find our path to better health a little easier. 🙂
