Sometimes I find myself falling off the wagon. And I have a lot of wagons to fall off of. Exercise, eating right, blogging, and personal finance, to name a few.
While I exercised like crazy on my little vacation to Maine over Labor Day weekend (lots of biking and hiking) I also ate quite a bit. You know, vacation, where you can eat like crazy. And then followed that with a business trip where I ate way too much and didn’t go to the hotel gym even once!
And, I haven’t blogged in, well, way too long. Haven’t posted in over a month!. Sorry about that!
And personal finance-wise, I feel like I’ve been spending a bit willy nilly. Including last month when I bought a new TV. It was technically a birthday present for my boyfriend, but of course, it kind of was also for me. I researched our options, and found a pretty good deal. And we’ve been thinking about getting a new TV for over a year. So, I don’t regret it! You know I love buying gifts for others. But still. You know. Spendy spendy.
The good news is, even when you fall of the wagon, you can get right back on!
Specifically, I’m glad to be getting back on the exercise and smart eating wagon. I’ve been inspired by both a fitness competition at work (tracking exercise, steps, and weight) as well as the Hometown Wellness Showdown from LoseIt.com and Boston.com (and the local YMCAs). I started using Lose It awhile back and made some good progress on weight loss and getting in shape. I became more mindful of what I ate and started working out a lot. But like I said, I sort of fell off the wagon. But these challenges are helping me get going.
So, I’m back! Back on the healthy living wagon, and back to watching what I spend, and hopefully back to blogging.
Have you fallen off any wagons recently? Or gotten back on track? What keeps you focused? Any ideas for blog posts so that I can keep on the blogging wagon? What do you want to hear from me?
