I know I said I’ll keep you guys updated with this whole trying to lose weight thing I have going on but I’m failing miserably I don’t even want to write about it but I’ll try today because I have nothing better to do, lol. The last time we talked (read more here) I probably said things were going smoothly. Well, things have gone downhill since then! I have zero exercise. In exchange for that, I have been eating less rice. It was working for a while. My weight went down from 147lbs to as low as 140lbs in a month. IT WAS AMAZING.
However, as soon as I ate rice (just for a week), I gained 3 lbs back! LOL. Ok, it’s not funny, but right now, LOL-ing is all I can do. I was already seeing a working system for me but my work schedule is messing everything up and all I’m seeing is myself eating.
Which just brings me to the conclusion that I really need to exercise and find a system wherein I eat less rice and add (even just a little) of exercise in my daily life. I honestly don’t know how that’s going to work since I have to report to work for 12 hours and commutes take up 4 hours. That leaves me with 8 hours for the rest of the things I want to do with my daily life. How promising, right?
Anyway, that’s my life/weight update so far. I’m nervous since I have to meet the doctor in a month and I have nothing to show for at the moment.
In the other side of my life, if we were having coffee, let me tell you that I was on the brink of moving my whole site to WordPress.org. It’s a move I tried a year ago and failed miserably that I just went back to Premium WordPress. A year after, here I am thinking that it’s a good idea to try it again. My main reason to move was so I could run ads (Nuffnang) on my blog. WordPress premium doesn’t allow you to do that even if you are paying for your own domain.
I was about to move when I asked myself the question why. At the end of the day, I just realized that I keep on blogging not because I want money but because I find it therapeutic. It’s just been a solid way for me to figure myself out and I honestly don’t find the need to try and earn from it (for now). Maybe things will change if my stats would improve but for now, I know in my heart that I love Premium WordPress, especially its wonderful community.
I’m sharing this story because I see tons of blogs/bloggers nowadays that seem to be inauthentic. There are just tons of sponsored posts out there that are full of lies and more focused on money and aesthetic. I don’t want to be one of them. My main goal for my blog is to be an inspiration for others. I post my travel pictures because I want to inspire others to see what the world has to offer. I post my reviews because it gives people an opportunity to take a glimpse of it and hopefully try it out for themselves. I post my music, thoughts, and other random stuff because I want people to engage with me in a healthy and productive way.
I don’t know what I’m trying to say.
