this blog stinks

So I just realized something. I've been so frustrating with myself for my lack of motivation and consistency in the past few months. And even more frustrated about how every blog post I write is about how I'm not motivated and inconsistent. And I keep trying to analyze what's missing...what's changed...why am I struggling so much with this?! So I looked back at what was going on in my life when I started this thing and remembered that I had pretty much NOTHING going on in my life last January through May, and even after May, I only worked a temp job (to August). Last January we had just moved back to Birmingham and I was unemployed. I was in search for a job, felt purposeless, felt a bit lonely, and I was in dire need of something to work on, to challenge myself, to focus on, and inspire me! This blog and journey was exactly what I needed...not only physically but also emotionally. It was filling a void. So no wonder it was easy to write blog posts, research health and fitness and exercise daily. Besides job searching, I had nothing else to do!

It's only been since September that I've been working full-time at Habitat. Around the same time we became more involved in a local church, have gained more friends, moved into a new place. Lots of things have been going on since September. And that's really when my lapse began.

So...here's the deal....I'm obviously not very good at maintaining this blog while having multiple things going on in my life. I obviously struggle with consistency while having multiple things going on (as most people I'm sure). I'm not going to stop...but I'm just gonna say it...this blog stinks and may continue to stink. You're probably well aware of this but it makes me feel better to say it...to just go ahead and claim it. I may rarely have anything inspiring to say. I may rarely have anything to say. But I'm stickin around because I need this...if anything for accountability of the moving log. And hopefully along the way I'll have something cool to say here and there.
