Lots of bloggers seem to be on stand by or in limbo land. Many days and weeks are going by without postings. I had to update my blog list to get some fresh and new perspectives ...any new perspectives. I've become an avid reader of new blogs. I'm reading archives. I need the community and to know we are all in it together. I also spend more time doing other things for my recovery non-blog related.
I worry when folks don't blog for days or weeks on end. Maybe they are doing fine. Maybe they are traveling. Maybe not. Maybe their dog ate their computer or they couldn't make the internet payment. Maybe they have nothing to say. Maybe they got sucked in to that void between Christmas and New Years where you have eaten and eaten and eaten and you just can't say no to the left over cookies and ham and fruit salad and Hershey's Kisses and you figure "heck , I'll just wait till New Years and just start over..begin again ..begin fresh. Get my head on straight in the meantime".
Maybe it's that they are in a period of review of the past year and planning for the New Year. Maybe Santa took them to the North pole to work in his candy cane factory. Maybe they are ashamed and having to pull themselves up by the boot straps to regain the strength and hope to try again. I'm quite familiar with some of this, as you might guess.
I worry. I hope you all are doing ok. I hope life is so good you just don't feel like bloggin. I'm glad you comment on my blog because it helps me to know I'm still making a little sense.
ME- If I'm not here every few days or so then I've probably lost my way or feeling major guilt about something. I'm not feeling that way now. I can't wait till New Years to reign it in-too much damage could be done. I'm on it now. A little irritated I got off track. Can't do anything but forgive and move on.
Today is a good day..drank over 135 ounces of water. Planned my food. caught my self nibbling and stopped and tried to figure out why. Overall, a good day food wise-emotion wise-plan wise. Lots of journaling , prayer, and honesty today. Many potty breaks. I worked 11 hours straight today...ugh. I've got a horrible cough that makes me sound sicker than I feel but exercise is probably quite out of the question. I'm off for Tuesday to celebrate the husband's birthday . I think we are going to see True Grit and eat out Italian.... will have to research that one a bit for the healthier choices..the garlic should help my cough. I just saw the John Wayne True Grit the other day.
I'll just go stick my nose back in to my Kindle and read some more, I guess. I've got 5 different books going at once-some are paper and some are kindle. Nirvana.
