This “Getting Fit and Healthy” thing is gonna kill me! (Part one of ???)
Posted by TxCowboyDancer
Right now… my body is saying “WTF?!!!”
My torso (lower back and abs) right now are having pretty much a full on “Angry Mob” kinda thing going on!!!!!
I’m going to bring you into my world…
Ok, now that the strong among you have decided to not run shrieking from the room…. and those who headed for the exits have closed the door behind them….
Right now I am in pain. As in I’ve taken drugs and I’m icing it down kind of pain and I really really wish it would stop kind of pain.
My lower back and my lower abs are literally clenching and hurting and doing the whole spasm thing.. Earlier, I had to ask my room mate to help me get out of my chair (more on that in a bit)
Literally. I needed help to stand up and get of of a chair. I’m being dead serious here folks! I. Could. Not. Stand. Up!
And you know that when I’m being literal, with no added drama, then the actual real “facts on the ground” are pretty darned dramatic all by themselves!
I think that my new efforts toward health and fitness are creating an uproar in my body…!!!!!
The never ending dilemma of a blogger / writer…
The never ending question;
the quandary, the puzzle, the issue
that every blogger, indeed every writer, always faces is
“What should I include?”
In my case… I’m writing a blog about “health, fitness, and my personal pursuit of those goals”
which means that I HAVE to share SOME personal details with…
Uhmmm…. well, not to put too fine a point on it, … with YOU fine folks who are reading this
But how much should I share? Obviously I need to share enough in order for the readers to “follow the story” But how much is “enough” and how much is “too much” and what should never be mentioned?
It is a juggling act. And for the most part my “rule of thumb” is “would I tell this story among casual acquaintances?” Which is a pretty good rule of thumb to follow.
Now that at first glance doesn’t seem too bad or difficult. However, now I find myself in a place, where in order for the readers, like yourself, to “follow the story” I have to share bits and pieces which I would rather not share. Details which describe a “story” that thousands have experienced and thousands have blogged about and about which books have been written and careers have been made and talk show hosts have broadcast.
So what’s the big deal? Well, this is MY story. MY gory details! This is ME we are talking about. Details that are not flattering in any way.
