Change in weight (1/12/21 – 1/18/21): 0 LBS
This week I held steady. Steady on the weight but a bit volatile in my brain. We are doing a lot of preparation for some upcoming life developments and I am trying to stay focussed. With all the responsibilities at work and at home, I worked 4 nights last week and then forced some R&R towards the end of the week.
I know I have been cryptic lately, but I still struggle a bit with how much to share on this forum. I try to be very open and honest about my efforts around improving myself, but there are times when certain things cross the line between me and broader personal topics. Regardless of this, I will have some updates soon.
What I would like some help with from all of you with is how to expand the content I present on this blog to be things that you and others would want to read. It has been very inward focussed, as I use it to keep myself accountable, but I would love to be able to help others who could relate to some of my realities. What are some topics you would like to read or you think others would be interested in? Some thoughts I have had are the following:
-more healthy recipes that work for me
-a semi regular post series on ‘moderation’ goodies or activities that help with the joy of life, but may need to be practiced in moderation
-more content on workouts/fitness
-some lists and steps for exercise, weight loss, and other topics
Do you mind commenting below on what you think would be most beneficial and interesting to others?
To some up last week, I had a bunch of outdoor time with the girl. That was great. I am trying to push through some busy work, but the end is near. There was too much takeout and cheat meals, which balanced out 4-5 days of good planning. I know it and I own it. I am ready for another week. This week I am hoping to incorporate more strength and start a series in Peloton called powerzone training. I have high hopes and strong goals, but how else do you move mountains?
