Macro, Micro, and Meta-Mucil


There is actually a “Method” behind the madness…

Motivation is what gets you going.  Habit is what keeps you going.If you’ve been reading my blog recently you know where I’m coming from:

333-335 lbs at my heaviest,
not healthy in any sense of the term,
and certainly not fit!

But I’ve not really talked very much about where I’m going.

And I’ve not talked very much about how I’m getting there.

Oh, I will…  I definitely will.  Watch for future posts on specific techniques.

For now, so you have some context in which to place this post you are reading, I have to very briefly give you a broad overview of what is going on as I make this journey to Health & Fitness.

Basically, I’m applying organizational skills that I acquired from my former life as a librarian to the task at hand.  Business practices like Gantt charts, procedural assessments, time management techniques, task efficiency studies, task check lists, etc.

The reality “on the ground” is that my life is in a certain state (one which I don’t like).

I strongly desire it to be in a radically different state!  Getting from here to there, Read the rest of this entry

Step by Step…


Iz to do'z done yetz? I can haz tummy rubz nao? ©2011

I’ve been giving a lot of thought to priorities lately.  And choices.  And stress.  And “to do lists”.  And how much or how little time we actually have in a given week.  And how much control over our lives or rather how little control we may or may not have.  And money or the lack thereof.  And what I’d like my life to look like.

OMG!!!  I’m having a mid-life crisis!

Eeeeeeeekkkkkk!

*PANT*  #GASP#  “I need bon-bons!”  Where’s my fuzzy slippers and my tiarra?!

*Ahem*  Sorry about that, my inner Drama Diva took possession of me for a moment.  In all seriousness, I’ve been giving a lot of thought to basically three ideas which are intertwined:

1. Being healthy, living healthy is HARD.

2. Being healthy, living healthy takes TIME, lots of it.

3. Everything is connected to EVERYTHING

Which means friends and neighbors that if you make living healthy a priority, then it is going to take time, it is going to be hard and it is going to affect everything!  So, that’s where the “start with something small” comes in.  And celebrate every completed goal, even the smallest of who’s.  Oh, sorry, wrong story. Smallest of Goals is what I meant!  [a moment aside….  Those who are new to my blog and who didn’t get that I just alluded to the character of Cindy Lou, one of the smallest Who’s in the Christmas story “The grinch who stole Christmas“…  well stick around a while.  Soon my world will seem normal and everyone else will seem weird and yes, to those who are interested, that really is how my mind works. Squirrel!]

So, back to the topic at hand.  Read the rest of this entry
