The Best of Both Worlds

Something has dawned on me. The further I get into my journey of living a healthier life, the less I think about it. I believe this is a good thing. I'm not spending all my energy thinking, worrying and wondering...I'm just doing. I don't have to ask myself, which food option is better, I just instinctively grab the healthier alternative. I no longer remind myself not to look for the closest parking spot, I automatically park on the far side, away from where I'm going. 



The downside to this, is that I'm not thinking so much about my blog and the fabulous support group my fellow bloggers & Twitterers are. I just vanish for days and weeks at a time, and reappear just as suddenly. Shame on me. They must think I'm a total flake. It's funny, I was so into it when I first started this journey, blogging every day, logging in to Twitter as soon as I turned on my computer. I could spend all day reading and responding to tweets and blog posts. Then life caught up and said "Excuse me, but did you forget you have a job to do, a business to help run, a son to teach, a husband to pay some attention to, family and friends you are neglecting, dogs who want to play, a house to clean, and many other responsibilities to take care of?" At which point I realized I had been neglecting all the other aspects of my life. Oops. Kinda hard to do the things I need to when I'm sitting at the computer blogging and tweeting all day long. So I pulled away from that, go so involved in everything else that I didn't have time to blog or tweet at all. OK, so something in me likes the extremes, it's like it's all or nothing. So here's my attempt at the best of both worlds. Lets see how long it lasts....

Healthy and Happy Living

Well, there's always a balance in life. You can't write about getting healthier if you're not out there doing it, so it's a catch-22. Check in when you can. It's always great to know we're not alone out here with out epiphanies and reprioritizing of our lives.

Hey, just popped over from SITS!

It can only be a good thing that instinct is taking over with your lifestyle, it must make everything easier and more enjoyable!
Don't worry about neglecting your blog or twitter, your readers will definitely understand if its because you are concentrating on your goals!

Have a good thursday x

It is hard to keep up with everything, that is for sure. I wish there were about ten more hours in every day.

How awesome to instinctively choose the healthier option. I go in cycles were I eat healthier and then I don't! I am lovin' the way you are chronicling everything on your blog. It is a huge inspiration to me. I am now a follower and will be back to visit often. So update sooner than later:-)

It's been a while since I stopped by. Know what you mean about the juggling act. The main thing is that the weight is still coming off whether you blog about it or not.
