Day 56: Why I write
The day before yesterday, I messed up. After 34 consecutive days of hitting my step goal, I lost track of time and fell asleep less than 500 steps from the prize. I didn’t feel discouraged, and fully intended to get right back to it yesterday, but I started to wonder if I needed to keep posting about it. It’s been over two weeks since I last published anything, and despite starting several drafts, I haven’t really felt like sharing anything.
Yeah, there’s been a lot I’ve wanted to say. My brain is always going – analyzing every little thing I do, feel, or say; and I have opinions about everything. But I don’t always feel comfortable sharing all that crazy, even somewhat anonymously, and I know that having opinions doesn’t mean others want to read them. But, I quickly realized this morning that without this blog, I’m significantly less motivated to hit my step goal every day. Writing these posts provide me with accountability. That’s reason enough to keep doing it.
So here I am, back at day 0, but still here. I’m not giving up on this challenge just yet.
