I write my best when I'm writing about my travels. A new place always inspires me. But I haven't been writing much lately for a variety of reasons, none of them because I haven't been traveling. Life seems to be more busy now than ever, even though I thought once the kids left home I would have time to burn. I'm struggling with a few things in my life right now, but one major issue is my weight. I've always struggled with it, either with actually being overweight or feeling like I am.
So I was thinking about it on my drive home today and I had an idea. What if I treat my quest for balance in my eating habits and weight loss goals as a journey, a "travel" of sorts, and document it here as I would any other journey? Maybe this could be helpful for me because I could use it as a place to work through my "issues."
So I'm my making my reservation and buying my ticket. I'm leaving tomorrow. I will do my best to journal my thoughts and efforts on the road to a healthier self-image and a little weight loss on the side. I'm going to need the Lord's help in so many aspects of this because consistency in anything, for one, is not my strong suit. I am an all-or-nothing girl, either over-achieving or totally checking out.
We'll see what kind of a trip I'll have, the people and attitudes that help me on my way, and hopefully more steps forward than back.
Gotta go. I'm packing my bags.
