Dang, I haven't blogged here in such a long time! I feel sheepish (b-a-a-a-a) and guilty. I am so weary of keeping this blog, and I've been dragging my feet to write posts.  I am very much looking forward to the end of this year when I can quit this. I need to think on what I want to do with my writing when it's all done. I hate to leave up an untended blog, so I'll probably print off the posts for my records (I keep everything I've ever written, LOL) and then delete the whole thing. I may leave it up for a while, though, just to have a feeling of personal accomplishment. It's very clear that no one is actually reading this :-)

On the whole, despite feeling guilty about not keeping my commitment to write every day, I'm doing very well. I finally broke through a 4-week plateau on Weight Watchers (just a half pound, but hey) only to plateau again last week. However, I think I've lost weight this week. I've finally been back to the pool, and it felt so good. I like exercising regularly now.

I feel like it time to do a quarterly "inventory" of my progress with this experiment, but I'll save that for another day. I'm beat from work, but I'm mentally, emotionally, and physically feeling much better than I was in my "stabby" post from last week. I think all I'll say inventory-wise right now is that since the beginning of the year, I've written 96 days out of a possible 258, yielding a post rate of 37% Pretty slovenly, but there's been a lot of growth going on behind the scenes as a result of doing this experiment, and I'll see if I can get that post rate up to or over 50% by the end of the year!

  1. So many of us start blogging with good intentions. And then .... And I hate that I, too, feel guilty about not cultivating my blog.

    By the way, I sampled one of the Nightfood bars and liked it. But my schedule's still been too irregular to get on a Nightfood routine. Soon, I hope.
