I know that I mentioned that I’m working on a new blog, but when I start thinking about replacing this one with something else, I start wondering if it’s a good idea. The name obviously doesn’t have the same meaning as it did when I started writing here, but it feels like me.
It’s always been about so much more than weight-loss. It’s about the reasons that I gained weight in the first place, the reasons that I struggle so much to lose it. It’s about finding happiness and peace and strength to do the things that scare me and invigorate me. I’ve found a lot of that through God, family, friends and my church, but I don’t know if I’m ready to let go of something that has been such an important tool for my growth.
The truth is that if I knew how to give this blog the facelift that it needs, I’d simply do that. I just don’t know much about the technical part of blogging, which is why it’s always been so simple here. Maybe I should work on figuring that out (even though the other blog name is pretty awesome too.)
In other news, school has started again, and I can’t decide which classes to take. I also decided that I wouldn’t drink anything at Starbucks this month until after I completed a workout. It’s my home away from home, and I think it’ll work as pretty good motivation.
Last night while I was comfortably knitting on my sofa, the fire alarms went off in my building. I put my sneakers on and walked from my floor to the ground floor (because we couldn’t use the elevators,) then I quickly walked up several flights of stairs in the parking garage to get to my car so I could leave. My heart was pounding a little by the end, but I looked at it as a bonus workout.
I’m looking forward to September because I love this time of year. I made an exercise goal that has nothing to do with numbers, and I’m looking forward to seeing how it impacts my health.
Is anyone else starting a new semester? Do you have any goals for the month?
