A few weeks back in a post, I lamented about my frustrations in not being a "good" bloggger and posting on a regular basis. I haven't progressed much since then, but I am happy to report that I have been doing my devotions every morning (which is much more important than blogging, afterall).
But I did think about how I might be a more consistent blogger and thought that if each day of the week was roughly set aside for a certain topic it might help. So I thought about different things I like on other blogs and I went from there and compiled my schedule -- and there it sat.
So today I decided to be just a day late and do my Tuesday Tool School post. I took a bunch of pictures and NONE of them turned out decent! So, of course, I took that as a sign (I'm a big believer in signs) and decided to do my Wednesday post (since it is Wednesday).
I was stalling on the Wednesday post because I have designated my Wednesday's topic as "Keeping it Real". I'm much more comfortable talking about tools and projects than about myself and my life. However, I so appreciate bloggers who are able and willing to share themselves with their readers -- the good and the bad (of themselves, not readers!). So on Wednesdays I will try to share a little more of myself. Here goes...
Well, I already covered my daily devotion progress -- check.
But something I haven't mentioned is that another area of my life that needed work was my weight/health. My profile picture must have just been a lucky one for me, because it really doesn't give away that I AM OVERWEIGHT -- A LOT! (There....I said it...and I guess that wasn't so bad.) I didn't think it was the appropriate time to deal with it because I already have enough going on in my life and I didn't want to take on "another projct". But we had an interesting development around our dinner table 3 weeks ago. All 6 of us are overweight and don't eat the healthiest and were discussing it. Then my daughter Becky (22) said "Hey, why don't we all hold our own family Biggest Loser". So that is what is happening in my family's life right now. Everyone is doing the method that works best for them. And we are to encourage each other. We would like to collectively lose 250 pounds by the end of the year! (I TOLD you we are all heavy). And as an extra incentive we are working on plans for a family vacation if we make our goal. So, how is it going? Well some are doing good, some are struggling, some are rebelling. But my plan is to go steadily and in common sense method -- less food, better food, and more exercise. So far I'm doing okay. And I've probably lost about 5#, so I'm about on track, I just have to stay serious about it.
Anyway, I did have another topic to share but it will definitely be wordy and I've already shared enough for now, so I will save that for next Wednesday. But here's a little hint: I love to re-use things... well... even my house is recycled!
So...the topic I have designated for Thursday is projects. So look for a project post tomorrow. And Friday is all about Junk Fun (I just don't know what that means yet, but I'm working on it -- please share if you have an inspiration).
