absolutely nothing inspiring

It's been about a month since I've written a post! Aaaahhhh! I think about it almost everyday. I need to write something. I need to write something. But nothing comes. You see...I am an artist and I have the artist curse. Whatever I produce, whether it be a painting or a blog post needs to be profound. It needs to be inspired and inspiring. It needs to be a creative masterpiece. Perfect. (Everything I do is definitely not profound...but the pressure is there, and sometimes I let it get to me more than other times.) Lately...I have felt so uninspired. Several times a week Michael and I will have designated "creative time." We'll turn off the tv, put on some music, may even go somewhere, pull out our laptops, notebooks, sketchbooks, or whatever medium we're feeling and "be creative." Lately, I've stared at my screen, notebook, and otherwise....and nothing comes. And it is absolutely frustrating.

So here I am to say absolutely nothing inspiring....but I'm saying something!

I'm still chugging along on this weightloss journey. Exercise has been lacking but I'm doing fairly well with eating. I've continued to try the vegan thing. It mostly happens on the weekdays and on the weekends I'm a bit more flexible. I have not bought meat or dairy products at the grocery store in over a month and it's definitely nice on the budget. I haven't lost any more pounds. I've plateaued and I know the only way it's going to break is if I get back to exercising. Need to find my routine again!

Ah...I feel better now. :)
