Today is February 1, 2022, and for the last month, I’ve been thinking a lot about the work of transformation but thinking, no matter how much I love it, doesn’t really do much. It does some, but not much.
But now it’s been a month and I’ve posted nothing, but weirdly, thinking about blogging a lot does not necessarily make one a blogger.
I’m as shocked as you are by this. Progress, not perfection. But since it’s a Tuesday, and the beginning of the month, here’s a post–
Weight as of February 1, 2022: 239.4 pounds, weighing in this morning.
Totally reasonable health goals for February, 2022:
- I want to exercise ten times this month.
- I want to refrain from eating after dinner this month.
- I want to lose five pounds this month, recognizing weight fluctuates within three pounds.
- I want to log at least 12,000 steps on at least ten different days.
We’ll see what happens–especially with a snow day possibly looming.
I also feel I should write about this pretty consistently, and provide the clearest explanation possible: I am not making value judgments for or about anyone based on their size or weight, not even myself. I believe that my low level of activity and poor choices about diet and exercise can and should be rectified, and I am sharing those results here for the sake of accountability, and because I’m so sick of hearing about Wordle and our collapsing democracy. Whether I succeed in these or other goals, or not, does not make me a good or a bad person. It makes me a person who is setting goals and seeking to meet them.
