So. It’s been a year (for all intents and purposes). After I started my no-more-dieting project last year, I discovered that trying not to think about dieting while WRITING about trying not to think about dieting was sort of . . . well, impossible. Kind of like the old line, “Quick! Don’t think about an elephant!” Aaaaaand, what are you thinking about right now? Yup. Thought so.
So I quit for a while. And now my year is up. And no, I’m not dieting (still). I have a new thing that I’m working on this year – well, a couple of them, really. I spent the last 12 months trying to get my brain healthy, and I decided to spend the next 12 trying to get my body healthy: not thinner per se, but healthier. I also decided to write about the last 12 months, and probably the upcoming ones, too. Not just here, but in an actual, honest-to-God book. (NO idea if it will sell, but what the hell, right? At the very least I’ll have something super-cool to leave my kids when I die.) (Yeah, I know. That was morbid.) (And yes, I know I don’t even HAVE kids. Just go with it, ok? Geez.)
So posting here will likely be sporadic, just because I need to work on the actual book thing. But I miss blogging – plus it’s a handy tool for overcoming writer’s block. ;) Less structured than an official book, but good for getting things on the page and getting some feedback. (Not that I’ve left anything worth feedback today, LOL.)
Aaaand . . . that’s it. We’ll see how things go.
