I get into routines easily. This can be a great thing and this can be a not so great thing. It all depends on the focus of the routine. I have certain routines I'm proud of--my #morningdeal, for instance--very proud of its consistency. My consistent logging in MyFitnessPal--this has done a world of good for me--and several other elements of my daily care have become solid routines. Then, there's the not so good routines...
The excessive coffee some days, the inconsistent sleep disciplines, the putting off my workout time until late--often sacrificing it in the name of "too busy" or "too tired," these are things getting my attention of late.
Boredom threatens to either disrupt my routines or it encourages positive changes in my routines. I'm giving some changes some serious consideration these days. My goal is to make positive changes--a disruption in that way--is good. A disruption in a negative way, not so much. It's a careful approach.
One of the things I'm considering is taking the Accountability Live-Tweet Stream off this daily blog. I haven't any plans or desires to stop the accountability food tweets, they'll still be on my Twitter account. I recently added the most recent tweet stream to the left-hand sidebar of this blog page--and that would stay. But if you view this blog on a mobile device, I don't think you see the side-bar. The food tweets are simply an accountability tool for me. The intention wasn't/isn't to be an example, a food plan for anyone but me--or even a cooking demonstration or recipe thing. It's simply a way for me to stay accountable and connected with my daily plan. It's worked very well. And I'll continue doing it. But you may not see them on this blog starting in a few days. For some, this would be a welcomed change--and for a few I've heard from who say they enjoy seeing them here, it won't.
Anyway-- the idea is to write more on this blog--go a little further in-depth--do the kind of writing I'm passionate about--instead of what my routines have rendered--basically, a nightly check-in.
I value this blog much more than just a nightly check-in. This blog has literally helped change my life. And it did because I wasn't afraid to dig deep and write from the heart. I think it's been missing that of late.
Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget. I remained abstinent from refined sugar. I exceeded my daily water goal. And I stayed well connected with great support.
