I've Been a Bad Blogger! My Effort to do Better!

I've been a terrible blogger. At first I was so good at writing regular blogs. But when I  have a topic I just don't seem to have the time to sit and write about it. If I'm not teaching a fitness class, I seem to be planning one. Or, I'm just too pooped to sit down and think about writing. But I want to do better. So to jump start my effort, I stole this challenge from a spin instructor blog that I visit frequently.

It's a 30-day photo challenge--forcing me to blog for 30 days straight. And after each post, I will try to add something in there about health or fitness or life in general. My family is full of photographers--I am not one of them--but I will do my best!

Here's the challenge:

Day 1: Self portrait
Day 2:  What I wore
Day 3: Clouds
Day 4: Favorite color
Day 5: Someone I love
Day 6: Childhood memory
Day 7: Something new
Day 8: Technology
Day 9: Faceless self-portrait
Day 10: Something I made
Day 11: Something fun
Day 12: Close-up
Day 13: From a distance
Day 14: Flowers
Day 15: My shoes
Day 16: What I ate
Day 17: On the shelf
Day 18: In my bag
Day 19: Where I slept
Day 20: What I read
Day 21: Pretty pattern
Day 22: Trees
Day 23: Sunset
Day 24: A smile
Day 25: Sunflare
Day 26: Something old
Day 27: After dark
Day 28: Daily routine
Day 29: Purchased
Day 30: In motion

So here we go with Day #1--a self-portrait. I have yet to take a picture of myself that I find flattering (this one is no different), so here it goes (man, now I wish I hadn't gone the ponytail route today. I look bald.

Now for today's commentary...

I'm  starting to feel like I should stop reading articles on healthy eating! I'm beginning to think that in this day and age, there are very few healthy things you can put in your body. Even fruits and vegetables are genetically modified, and full of toxic chemicals. In fact, just last week Mark (the spouse) listened to a radio program where the guest was saying even wheat is not as healthy as the wheat our grandparents ate, because farming and crops have changed so much.

Eating healthy is becoming a stressful endeavor!


  1. This is a good idea to keep you motivated to update your blog everyday... I might just steal your idea and do it myself :-)

  2. Go for it! It's kind of fun....and inspires ideas. (I stole the idea from another blogger)!
