Blogging regularly about cooking had one big benefit. It had me cooking regularly and healthily.
Let me tell you what happened when I stopped blogging several times per week. The scale started to show some different numbers than I’d gotten used to seeing.
Blogging — of lack thereof — wasn’t the only thing behind this weight gain, which has happened over two years. I switched to a more sedentary job that had me mostly in an office instead of walking to and from the state capitol building every day. I also fell off the wagon of regular exercise and began eating lunch out almost every day. Those lunches generally fell into the category of sandwich and chips or french fries. Not good.
So, where does that leave us? Well, 20 lbs heavier for one.
I listed to a three-minute TED talk the other day about doing something every day for 30 days. Though I find some TED talks to be overblown, I liked the simplicity of this one. How hard is it to do something for 30 days?
So, my goal is to blog every day for 30 days about my meals, which I’ll also be tracking on MyFitnessPal. And hopefully, this will get me back on a healthier track.
