Days 9, 10, 11, 12 & 13

Turns out I'm still not great at blogging everyday.

I could be.

But so far I've chosen to not be.

Meh, I still going to plan on doing it everyday, and working towards that end, but it's not nearly as important to me as exercising every day.

Also, you may notice I changed the look of my blog for the first time. I did that because I realized that though I originally really liked the look of it, it no longer reflected who I'm becoming. The original black scheme was about hiding and denial.

I strive now to be about light and truth.

I also replaced my black and white "head in my hands" picture of myself I had as my profile shot. I did that also because it's no longer who I am anymore. That was about being hopeless, and some "why me?" victimization, and immaturely romanticized drama.

I strive now to be about success, self-accountability, and moderation.

Days 9, 10, 11, 12, & 13

Did I exercise?

Well, let me just say this:







Yes.

Saturday: 40 minutes of basketball, and drove a large bucket of golf balls at the range.
Sunday: 100 wall push ups and 10 sit-ups (pseudo sit-ups, I got up on each as far as I could)
Monday: 35 minutes of lawn mowing
Tuesday: 40 minutes of lawn mowing
Wednesday: ½ mile walk and 75 wall push ups

Next.

  8. I know what you mean about changing who you are and how you identify yourself. I am still trying to figure all that out, but it is great to know that where I am is better than what I was before. So happy for you and nice job on your exercise goals!! A great reminder that exercise doesn't have to be 2 hrs at the gym; it can be mowing your lawn or going for a nice walk.

  17. I have read your blog almost from the beginning. You have inspired me, taught me, made me think, made me cry and now, my heart is breaking. Your struggles were not in vain, we learned, and we will miss knowing the person you were. Watch us from the other side, watch us succeed for you.

  34. I was so shocked and saddened to hear of Garrett's death. Garrett was my first boyfriend in the 8th grade, the first boy I ever kissed. He was such a smart and witty guy, everyone loved him and loved having his friendship. He will be deeply missed. I have some pictures I would like to send to his family along with my condolences, but I don't have a mailing address. Unfortunately, I didn't get a response to my request from the funeral home. If anyone can help me get the proper address, I would appreciate it.

    Sincerely,

  61. Hey, you haven't posted in quite a long time! I hope everything is okay with you.

    I agree with you that exercising every day is more important than blogging, but personally, I've found that blogging is of great help to stay motivated. There are lots of people to share your story with and many willing to share their as well. When it comes to weight loss, this kind of honest mutual support is very hard to come across. I am not saying that you couldn't do without it, but it's way easier and way more fun than battling all by yourself.

    There are many people eager to read updates from you, so you should definitely consider starting to post again, even if it's just one post a week.
