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! ☺️
UPdate: First email newsletter complete! ✅
