Oh, my poor sadly neglected blog. I’ve been off creating a bright shiny new blog for my CB friends and completely ignoring you. Here, I brought you some flowers as an apology. Pansies and snapdragons, two of my favorites:
Why, you’re quite welcome. I picked them in the drive-thru lane at Chick-fil-A where I was ordering healthy grilled-not-fried chicken and substituting a
questionable lovely fruit medley for fries. Really.
Okay, it’s time to refocus. Lately I’ve been playing around and writing blog posts and comments elsewhere (I love WordPress — can I say that over here?) and having a grand old time . . . and not accomplishing much of anything else.
In an effort to prove I can be disciplined and maintain a routine, I’m setting some simple daily goals that should help me attain some not so simple long-term goals:
1) I have started the 100 pushup challenge. Okay, stop laughing. If you’re thinking I couldn’t do a real pushup to save my life, you’re right. I have very little upper body strength. I can’t do the “modified” version either because that involves kneeling and that just feels too submissive. Or it might have something to do with the extreme pain of kneeling on damaged knees that have no gooey stuff left between the bones. So I’m doing the wimpy wall version. NOW you can laugh. Hey, it’s better than doing nothing. And I’m doubling the routine by repeating each day, so instead of three days a week, I’ll do six and rest on Sunday. Since it’s so arduous.
2) I’m going to bring my lunch to work every day. You think this sounds easy, don’t you? It should be, but it’s not. It requires planning. And shopping. And daily washing of plastic containers. But I’m determined to do it because it will save money and I will eat healthier food. And because I’m going to have to let well-intentioned but hopelessly delusional family members take one or two pictures of me in August. Why they insist on traumatizing every get-together is beyond me.
3) I’m going to write SOMETHING, even if it’s dreck, even if it’s just one page of the vilest dreck imaginable, even if it’s just a weekly blog post, every single day. Except Monday. Because in general, Mondays completely suck and no one is going to want to read anything I might write on a Monday. Plus it’s the only night I watch TV. I’ve gotten out of the habit of writing on a regular basis and that’s bad. Need to regain that discipline.
So, three simple daily goals. I think I can handle it.
Anyone want to join me? There must be something you all should be doing every day, but you’re not. ‘Fess up.
