Like many bloggers I’ve found in recent months that I just haven’t managed to blog very often but for no obvious reason. This is something I really want to change so I decided that after managing to blog every day in December on my old blog that I’d go for “May Merriment”. My intention is to blog every day through May with the hope that after that I’ll just keep going.
This morning I looked at my phone and realised it was 2nd May. The month has started without me noticing and as a result I’ve missed the first blog of the month already. Whoops!
Interestingly, to me at least, my first thought when I realised I’d got my dates all mixed up was similar to the reactions I used to have when I ate something that didn’t fit in with diet plans. If I was dieting and ended up eating cake or chocolate my instinct would be to write the day off and aim to start again the next day. In a similar way I was ready to write this month off and try again in June. Slowly but surely I’m trying to change my feelings about food and now if I eat something that doesn’t necessarily fit into any current healthy eating plan I let myself off the hook and get right back on track at the next meal time. I’m going to do the same thing with this blogging plan – yes I missed 1 day, but there are another 30 to go.
