In this fascinating world there are a million and one topics to write about, and yet when we sit down to put all of our thoughts on to the digital page, or even plain paper our minds go blank. So I am starting small, I choose eight ounces instead of the liter.
This happens to me all the time, I have a notebook filled with all kind of notes and ideas for posts and yet here I sit writing about not being able to write, ironic isn’t it?
For me, my mind is running a million miles a minute all the time, so many ideas, aspirations, hopes, fears and dreams. I put the most pressure on myself to perform, and thus I psyche myself out.
I have been a little bit of a funk. Scatter brained and off kilter as one may say. I do have a lot to share from my brief time away. I have new ideas, recipes, a few book reviews and lots of excitement about the upcoming 2012 Prime Time Season.
My children are back on their school schedules. While there is now time to breathe after nine pm this of course brings vocab words, book reports, and last minute projects to the horizon. I am plugging away at the day job, and working on a new book.
October 15th 2012 will be my two year anniversary as a published author. I will not say the road has been easy, but I am still here, damn it.
Our first new topic will be weight-loss, specifically mine. The topic is something I have avoided, however, I have realized there are a lot of writers out there in the same position and we need to stick together, correct? Over the past few months, inactivity and stress have hit my hips, butt and thighs hard. I have joined a gym and I am watching what I am eating. I am willing to share my insights and discoveries along the way, but I will promise this will not turn into a ‘woe is me’, I hate myself blog. There will be no whining and no negativity!
Funny thing about weight, we don’t, or I don’t get in too much of a fuss about it until my clothes don’t fit. By then of course it is too late and I am in crisis mode. The other ironic item to this whole losing weight challenge is the simple fact of I gain weight because I do not eat. Not often enough or at the right times. I starve my body and then feed it so it stores all of the fuel as fat. I am my own worst enemy!
So lets wrap up with the title of tonight’s post.
I am not a water drinker, truth be told the ONLY time I want water is after a workout. So the whole eight glasses a day thing has been challenging. My insight – I have found for me if I drink water from a small bottle I drink it more frequently and faster. Whereas if I carry around I huge liter of water I usually glance at it anxiously and end up with an iced tea. It is all psychological of course, with the small bottle I get instant satisfaction and a sense of accomplishment. The only advantage have found with the big liter is the arm workout I get from carrying it around.
Would love to hear from any and all of you about how you are, weight-loss tips, writing and what show you are looking forward to this fall!
