I feel like I’m the ex who ghosts you, but hasn’t really broken up with you. You know the one who decides to ignore your calls and texts from nowhere? With no reason? But they don’t block you, they just go silent on you. Just to ensure that when they come back and you’ve moved on, it’s your fault that you couldn’t wait around for them to “find themselves”, and so it proves that you really weren’t the ‘ride or die’ they thought you were. You know that ex? We all have one. Unlike that ex, I am going to apologize and try and explain myself.
I’d love to say I met a guy so I’ve just been on baecations and that’s why I couldn’t post. Or to tell you that I just had a baby so I’ve been super busy. But that would be lying. Do I have a reason for going silent? No. I don’t even have a good excuse. What I do have is mad respect for bloggers who do this consistently. Because man, blogging is actually pretty tough. It really is like having a full-time job. But I’m not here to whine and grumble. I’m sorry for the silence. I really am. Sorry I ghosted you. For all the ladies who’ve been reaching out with stories, I promise to stay consistent this time round. I really do.
So, what’s been happening?
Well, I have gained weight, and no, not at all in the right places. I have the type of body that stores the most fat in my tummy area, face and thighs. So I have done a few ‘crash diets’ here and there, but that didn’t work. Why? The same reason, I haven’t been posting on the blog- CONSISTENCY. I’ll start on a Monday and stay diligent, but by Tuesday evening, I’m having a cupcake to “reward” myself for my commitment. Hahaha. Then it’s downhill from there. But don’t get me wrong, I am not attempting these diets for anyone, but myself. I just want to be able to run up and down the stairs without panting. And there’s a black dress that used to fit and I really want to be able to wear it again.
Good health is important. Physical health, mental health, emotional health, spiritual health, even financial health. But it should always be for you. Not because someone wants you to look a certain way and certainly not for the “gram”. One of my close friends says, “I work out because I want to look good naked”, initially, I didn’t get it. But I do now. When you’re alone, what do you see when you look in the mirror? Does what and who you see make you happy? Does what you see make you feel good about yourself? If it does, then well and good. If not, then find out what you want to change and work at it. Start small, set realistic goals, get someone to keep you accountable… and as NIKE says, JUST DO IT.
Let me not be overbearing by doing all the talking. I want to know how you’ve been. Any story to share with us? Leave your email on the comments and I’ll definitely reach out!
I’m so glad that you didn’t forget about us.
