I’ve taken some unintended time out recently. I haven’t had much in the way of positive things to write about and I have wondered whether September just needs writing off altogether. Better things are planned for October, that is for sure!
I’ve done a reasonable amount of wallowing, and true to form, my old habits and coping mechanisms have crept back in, stealth-like. My diet in September has been pretty poor, but I have managed to get a little bit of exercise in. It hasn’t been consistent, but it was there and I’ll take that little bit of good. Kettlebells are actually quite therapeutic even though I walk like I’ve lost my horse for the following three days! I’ve snuck a bit of yoga in too.
What I have spent more time doing recently is rebuilding my bank of inspiring people, including following new people on Twitter and Instagram, reading more and trying to consolidate where I am and where I need to go, and how I get there. Having
stalked followed many of these people over the last couple of weeks, I’ve realised that I’ve become so overwhelmed by the enormity of losing the weight or getting back in to exercise that I’ve lost sight of how to get there, and stopped taking it one step at a time. Will doing or not doing something make my situation better in the longer term? This is the question I have allowed to get lost in the fluff of overthought. I’ve focused on the all-consuming goal rather than breaking stuff down in to manageable chunks.
So now it is time to chunk it up!
P.S – in other news, I have written my first ever guest post over on Paleo Demystified. I was all silly excited when they asked me if I would like to put something together, and it’s even more exciting to see it up!
