Man, this time of year is awesome. I just love the Christmas/New Year holiday. This year I made a very strategic effort to be in the moment and focused on all the family and friend time instead of worrying about taking pictures and how to turn everything into a cool blog post.
As I sat down to write this post, I realized, though, that I’m definitely going through a priority shift of sorts: for starters, I used to stress about writing a blog post every day. Now, I’m happy if I write 2 posts per week. My quantity of blog posts and frequency of writing just isn’t that important to me anymore. Don’t get me wrong….I’m not planning on stopping blogging anytime soon, I just don’t feel the need to write mediocre blog posts simply for the sake of making it a daily occurrence. I’ve really enjoyed writing when the mood strikes and saying something worthwhile.
The other thing is that blogging is inherently selfish and that sometimes bothers me. Who am I to think that I am important/interesting/knowledgable enough to put my meals/workouts/ideas/opinions/etc. out to the world? Why does anyone care what I’m eating for dinner this week or what I did for my anniversary? So…if it seems that I’ve been straying from the personal stuff a wee bit, that’s why. Although I receive the kindest, most amazing feedback from a bunch of people, I still think it’s funny that blogs are mostly just people spilling their personal stuff with a little wisdom dropped in from time to time.
Need some personal stuff from me?? Here ya go:
- according to my fancy, schmancy Basis Peak that Mark got me for Christmas (I love it, by the way!!!!!), I have walked 1,083 steps today.
- our guest bedroom is a complete DISASTER. There is wrapping paper, random books, Christmas ornaments, shipping boxes, and who knows what else strewn everywhere. I’m about to go crazy from it, too.
- the house we’re building looks so incredible! Our builders are amazing and Mark and I could not be more pleased! It’s our dream first home!
There have been a bunch of interesting fitness and food articles in the news lately. Here were the most interesting ones to me (see…there’s that selfish thing again 😉 ):
Have a stupendous day!
