Taking a Break

So I guess you might say I was pushing myself too hard.

It’s been almost a week since my last post.  I remember it well.  It was weigh-in day, April 19th.  (smh)

I decided to chill a little bit, pull back, so to speak, partly because I was starting to go a little bonkers, trying to push my body to lose a certain amount of weight by a certain time.  Recipe for disaster in this case.  Still stayed vegan, but ate cooked food and didn’t avoid fats too much.

One reason I think I didn’t do so well with it was because I have not sought out support of any kind.  I’m still doing this all on my own, and haven’t turned to anyone for counsel or uplift when things get low.  I still haven’t shared this blog.  No one (except you and a couple of other accidental readers) even know it exists as of this date.

The other reason I’ve been wavering (in my opinion) and hovering around a certain weight on the scale is because I haven’t begun moving.  I think that movement is medicine of the highest order.  To be honest, I actually feel like I could do some walking now, and gradually build up from there.

Another short post.  I am grateful for these times of “failing,” introspection and growth.  Failure is irrelevant, says Roberto Blake.  It’s just a data point.  I am convinced that is the best way to look at it.  I am developing a system that, if it works for me, is bound to help many other people like me.  This is why I keep grinding.

Ok!  I’ve decided.  I will officially publicize this blog on Wednesday, MAY 3rd, 2017.

This week’s goals:  I will take pics of myself, start a walking routine, start building my community on Periscope, and complete my first email newsletter.  Yay! ☺️

Stay tuned…

UPdate:  First email newsletter complete! ✅
