That’s only a half-hearted ‘argh’. It’s more to signify a mild annoyance than any deep-seeded frustrations at not having the time to post anything worth reading. I know things will improve, inspiration and time wise, within a week or so. But, I am here, reporting in, because I also know that if I don’t I am just opening myself up to a slippery slope.

I care deeply about this journey. And it is still a huge priority for me. So, regardless of the fact that I don’t always have a lot of time to dedicate towards certain parts of it, I will keep on going through the motions when I can’t do more because it keeps me grounded and cognizant of how I want my life to be. Something is still better than nothing!

  1. good to see you keeping up the blogging...it IS a slippery slope, one I'm clawing at currently...you're still an inspiration, even when you don't feel particularly "wordy" "witty" or otherwise.
    thanks for sharing your journey - even the "boring" parts....it all means something!!

  2. I can appreciate where you're coming from as I'm a huge carb addict myself. However, you might want to try eliminating the processed crap from your diet in order to get yourself back on track. IMO, you're eating way to much sugar for an addict to handle. Just sayin....

  3. happy to see youre still here. hang in there

  4. Thanks all! I'm doing my best!

    Sue, you are right and I am working on it. I have been better and better with the ice cream lately which was my real Achilles' heel of late. It's all a process, but it's one worth working at. Thank you for keeping me accountable!

  5. Way to show up!! I am encouraged by your honesty. Thanks for writing.
