Chasing the Sun: The Beginning

posted in: Chasing the Sun | 0

Do you know how many times I’ve wanted to start a weight loss blog, only to have it fail! Or really, I failed at the weight loss, and thus the blog failed.

So I would delete those posts and start over the next I was ready to give it a go.

I did this over and over again. Even publishing some of posts in hope that it would motivate me to keep goin.

Yeah… it didn’t.

And so as I’ve thought about it this time, and over the last few months and the more over the last few days, I think I’m going to approach it differently.

I’m not here to prove anything, though I would like to show myself that I can follow through.

I’m not here to reach a goal and get fame, though I do have a few goals I’d like to meet.

And I’m not here to just accomplish weight loss, well… see line above, I do have a few goals I’d like to tackle.

I’m here to change me and my habits. I’m here to get a healthier grasp on life, and I’m here to, hopefully, inspire someone to do the same.

The Bigger Picture

I realized that though I do want to lose weight and I want to fit into all my *much* smaller clothes in my closet, there’s much more to it than that.

I want to eat healthier and enjoy it.

I want to have less mood swings and a more positive attitude.

I want to become less lazy and more active.

want to feel good instead of being tired and worn out all the time.

I want to become a runner, and tackle some races.

I want to wake up refreshed and happy and ready to start the day.

I want to be an example to my children and teach them the things I’m learning.

Where I live, it tends to be really grey this time of year. The clouds have departed, I see the blue sky, and the sun shining. And as I sit in my kitchen, during naptime, in the quiet of my house, I’m starting a blog, that is somewhat different.

It’s time for my to start energizing my life and start a journey to a more healthier me. A happy, energetic, full-of-life me.
