Follow Through

I was laying in bed last night and I started to think about my last week living in Los Angeles.  I was actually thinking about the day that Salvation Army came to pick up my refrigerator. I'm not really sure why.  And then, my mind started to wander.  I started thinking about my blog, work, and my personal life.  I think I am starting to develop a pattern.  Not a good pattern, either.  Lack of follow through.

When it comes to my blog, I have been slacking.  A lot!  I didn't post anything Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, or Sunday.  I know that some people write occasionally  but that's not what my intentions were when I started this.  I wanted to blog 5 days a week.   There are also the link ups that I do (4 a week) instead of writing in my own voice.  I feel like it's sort of a cop-out, for me anyways.  Now, I'm not a great writer by any means, but isn't blogging about sharing your own voice?  Your own opinions?  I am not going to stop doing all of the link ups, but I am going to only do 2 a week instead of 4.  So, the format of my blog might change a bit.  I hope you still stick around!

In regards to work, I have also been slacking.  Not by any means am I in jeopardy of losing my job or something, but I'm not giving 100%.  I can't use the "I'm new" excuse anymore.  I know what I need to do and I just need to start freakin' doing it!

My personal life...
Good Lord, where do I begin?  This is actually a pretty good time to be re-evaluating things.  Lent starts on Wednesday.  I am going to church after work with a coworker of mine.  As you know, I signed up for Weight Watchers in December.  Did I ever tell you why?  Well, let me tell you now.  When I joined WW in December I was at my highest weight ever - 155.4 pounds.  Back in August of 2011 I was weighing in at 130.  I started taking Lexapro for my depression and I put on 25 pounds in 16 months (I'm also on birth control which doesn't help either).  It has been 50 days since I've joined WW and I am currently at 155.2 pounds.  0.2 pounds...that's it!  Again, I know what I need to do...I need to use the program.  I need to work out.  I need to eat right.  

My mom thinks I'm stuck in a rut.  I think she's right.  I have friends, great friends, but I'm not really out there.  I go to work and I come home.  On the weekends I will see my friends when we can get together.  If we can't I'm usually just home watching a marathon of Netflix or Hulu (just like I did today).  I can keep using money as an excuse, but then I will always be a "shut in."  I have been given a couple websites that list volunteering opportunities, so I will be looking into that this week.  I am also going to start going back to church on a regular basis.  There's one in Clarendon that I really like.  There's also one in Falls Church that friends of my parents used to go to, so I'm going to check that one out.  Over Christmas my mom suggested that I get involved in a church choir, so maybe I will.

I just wanted to share what was on my mind.  I hope it wasn't too mushy :)  I am going to try and keep up my blogging and I hope that you guys stick around.  It's going to start getting pretty real! Haha!

Oh, and stop by my best friend's blog, Pursuit of Pink, for an awesome giveaway that I'm participating in.  I'm giving away an awesome necklace from Charming Charlie.
