Twenty Nineteen

No, this isn’t a post about the WordPress theme. It’s about the start of a new year.

I realized I hadn’t made any posts in a long time, so what better time than New Year’s Day to post an update?

I’m also trying out the new Gutenberg post editor. As someone who usually composes blog posts in the text editor, it’s a bit of a jarring change. But, I suppose the new year is the time to make some drastic changes, right? YOLO.

Without going into details, I’m making some changes with my own life. I’m not going to detail those changes, but at my age, I’ve gotten to the point where I can’t out-exercise my shitty eating habits, so some big changes are afoot. I’m lucky that my husband is also 100% on board, so there won’t be any conflicts with me trying to stick to the plan and he’s shotgunning a pizza in front of me.

I know, I know – it’s the same bullshit that everyone else spouts off after a month of holiday indulgences. However, I hate what I see in the mirror and if making meaningful changes over time will help fix that, then it’s worth the work. I’m not looking for headpats and validation about how “you’re beautiful no matter what size you are!” because that isn’t true for me. I am not happy at this size and I’d been ignoring it for too long. If that means giving up indulgences, then so be it.

Goals.

I have too many things I want to do that I can’t because of my current size. I want to do a crossfit competition – but that’s never going to happen if I can’t do the basics because my body can’t manage its current state. I also want to get back into running, which seems impossible now. Five years ago today I was running a 5k race in sub-zero temperatures. Today I don’t think I could run down the block and that sucks.

So. Changes. Big ones. Fuck yeah.
