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.
