It’s About Time For An Update
So, this is my first post for quite a while. I didn’t plan on stopping writing, it sort of just happened. I didn’t post for a week and felt quite liberated, like I had one less thing to worry about. That’s because blogging had started to become a chore, something that I had to squeeze in between getting home from work and whatever else I had to do in the evening. So, a week became several weeks and I started to think about ending the blog.
To be honest, I’m still on the fence about that. I might come back to regular posting at some point, but it seems unlikely at the moment. However, I think I might like to do an occasional post, race recaps and some training updates perhaps, so I’ve decided to keep the blog alive to some extent.
Other than not updating my blog, my life hasn’t changed much at all. I’m still addicted to reading blogs and it seems like I’m constantly glued to my Google Reader app. I might only be an occasional commentator now, but I still appreciate all your great writing.
I’m still eating healthily, apart from a week where I had at least one slice of cake every day. In some ways that was a very good week, although my trousers did feel a bit tighter afterwards. I’m still striving for a more “normal” relationship with eating after years of weight gain and dieting. I’m extremely proud that I’ve maintained a healthy weight for three years now, but in many ways I think normalising that relationship will be easier away from blogging.
Nothing has changed with regards to my enthusiasm for running and yoga either. I’ve been training for Sheffield Half Marathon on Sunday and I have other races lined up for the rest of the year, including the Great North Run.
So, what am I doing with all my free time? I’m spending some more time in the kitchen cooking and experimenting, I’ve been catching up with my favourite TV programmes, and I’m trying to work my way through some of these 1000 Must Read Books. I’ve read a pathetic 57 of them in my life so far, so it might take some time.
By the way, I’m still tweeting because I can just about cope with 140 characters. Follow me if you want! @picnicsarah
So, until next time …
