I've been referencing my job intermittently for the past ten months. (Sorry I haven't said what it is...just prefer to keep it separate from the blog.) You may recall that my boss left last summer and I was appointed "interim" in his position. Yesterday night I changed the auto signature on my work email and now I'm officially back to my old job. That's not a light job by any means, but it will be a little less demanding of my "free" time. So...
This blog is going to pick up! More importantly, I'm rededicating to my health and fitness.
I can't explain it, but I just feel like I'm in a good place to do this now. I've been sharpening my theories over the past few months about why I am doing this and how to do it. Why is more about the benefits of being healthy than a number on a scale. How is heavily about a system of strategies that create the conditions for success. At the highest level, those are:
Quality and quantity of food
Regular resistance and cardio exercise
Drinking enough water
Getting enough sleep
Making urgency a habit
My knee injury last week just underscored the need to move health and fitness way up my list of priorities. There's nothing like a sore/stiff/weak knee to make you feel old overnight. It's slowly getting better and I don't think there's anything structurally wrong with it, but it definitely has motivated me to focus on slowing down the aging process, as much as is possible anyway.
As for the blog picking up, I'm going to lift my "Sundays only" blogging rule. I'd imagine I'll still mostly work on weekends, but I'm going to to write more for a while. I'm going to fill out the strategies above, and maybe throw some other stuff in. And I'll be reading more of your blogs. They always help me focus and consider new approaches. Thanks for your support.
