…and so I started a blog
Thanks for stopping by! Like the stolen Pinterest quote alludes to, I have a real tendency to work on overprocessing an idea for a long time before finally saying…..well….what that image says. That’s exactly the process that got me to this blog.
One of my New Year’s Resolutions this year was to start a blog. Another was more action, less time processing plans to do things…like starting a blog.
Besides the fact that over processing is a character flaw I’m working on, my interests and life are so incongruent most of the time that I didn’t know where to begin. Eventually, I just had to say, “fuck it,” and make a move. Here we are. It’s a blog about weight loss, cars, cooking, my current house hunt (and the likely house projects to follow)….it’s literally whatever I want. Because I own the domain, and I pay the host, and I can. Hopefully someone finds it interesting enough to follow along.
Here’s some things in the last year that elicited a “f*ck it” after months of processing. They’ll probably get their own posts in the future, but some of them are gonna take some time for me to work up to spelling out.
- Leaving a very long term, very live in relationship.
- Moving cross country and taking my longstanding dream job.
- Deciding to jump head first back into weight loss after gaining 45 pounds….that I fought so hard to lose in 2015.
Seeing as I left my therapist and our weekly appointments in So Cal, I hope this doesn’t turn into a giant self-therapy sesh. Buuuut it might, so hang in there, and I’ll try to not sound like a crazy person as much as possible.
In other, way less crazy news, I’m planning to address these things each week…
- Weekly weigh ins
- Car updates and projects as they’re happening
- Automotive how-to’s: oil changes to engine swaps
- Recipes and kitchens
Basically, I’m making this all up as I go. Stick with me while the site gets to 100%, and I pick up some momentum. It might jump around, but at least it won’t be boring.
