Comittment to blogging has been waning. It’s not really for lack of free time, it’s more like a lack of desire. After trying to restart this thing a few times I’ve realized that I’m really not interested in detailing my food and fitness escapades as much as I was in the past. Instead of an insightful fun hobby where I unravel my past eating disorder demons it’s seemed to, lately, bring the past bubbling to the surface in an ugly way. That is to say I started to really struggle with myself.
However, I’m not done blogging. I started a book called “May Cause Miracles” at the behest of my nutritionist. I didn’t realize when I picked it up at Barnes and Noble that it’s a 40 day workbook, but it is and I’m going to share with you my 40 days. I have 48 days until I leave Ohio for the great semi-unknown (mostly to you, but I will reveal that soon enough). I’m seeing a nutritionist/health and wellness coach. I’m not vegan – le sigh- but I’m also not going to talk about my diet. Or my exercise schedule. All of that is being handled. I train/workout 6 days a week as per my usual. I eat regularly and I have some specifics designed for energy and some health concerns that became pressing. I’m also taking a few vitamins (Multivitamin, ALA, PB8), which I’m usually, utterly horrible at but I’ve been keeping up and I think that’s progress. But I’ve made a choice to shift my focus off of food and exercise for a while and see what happens when I focus on career and emotional/mental health – spirituality if I may use the term loosely. I am not “religious” in the sense that is widely used but I am very interested in my own spiritual life.
And so I want to write about my experience with Gabrielle Bernstein’s book “May Cause Miracles” has anyone read it?
For tomorrow… Day 1
