Truly. There is not even a tiny shred of real blog material in my head.
Blog material feels like something I really need to talk about, analyze, re-experience, learn.
It feels like words that rush from my head to my fingers and fight to see who can get out first.
This describes blogging perfectly:
In comparison, Facebook statuses are random, inconsequential things that I want to say - not necessarily talk about. Can you see the difference?
Today, my head is just full of little Facebook statuses, not blog material.
Here they are:
I'm going to a Lap-Band Information and Orientation Seminar at Lovelace Hospital in Albuquerque next week. Lap-bands appear to be a topic that everybody has an opinion about -- except me. I just want to explore the possibility. That doesn't mean I'm going to get one. That doesn't mean I'm not going to get one either.
Last year while I was busy saying "ME!ME!ME!ME!ME!ME!ME!" through my blog, my friend, Kara, was quietly losing all the weight I wanted to lose. She lost over 40 pounds and is now weighs exactly what I want to weigh. I'm so impressed with her. She didn't really try to lose weight. She just started eating differently and walking her dog.
My friend, Barb, has stuck to a vegan diet all week. Even with us going to a workshop and eating out twice on Wednesday. She has lost FIVE POUNDS this week! Again, I'm impressed.
I have anxiety about the next two days. Nina has come to spend the weekend and she is in a BAD mood. That doesn't bode well.
This morning, I weighed 215. I've kind of been stuck here this week. I've not made any huge mistakes but I haven't made huge headway either.
I probably should start pumping.
Nina angry > Me bad mood > Coasting = Set Up For A Screw Up.
And the fact that I'm blogless makes it even worse, I fear.
