A Silly Endeavor · 4 December 2012

Blogging is such a silly endeavor. Especially, when you do it every day. For even when you have something to say, it may not turn out right. But if it is terrible, you still need to meet your deadline and satisfy your readers. Both real and imaginary. At least that is the way I look at blogging. I feel compelled to put something out there whether I am ready or not. Whether I slept well or not. Whether I have anything to say or not. It is a strange compulsion, but then again, I suppose any compulsion is a bit strange.

Writing about health is probably even sillier than blogging in general. People do not really want to know about health because it seems that most people really do not want to fix problems. We either want to complain about a problem or find a quick fix. We do not really want lasting results. We just want to feel good about doing something. Regardless of the consequences.

Personally, I want to find the root of a problem and fix it. I want to know why I am fat, then, find a way to get thinner. I want to find a way to eat that satisfies my stomach and palate and yet keeps me healthy. I want to be able to be physically fit for as long as I live. And I want to be mentally active as I age. These are the reasons that I started writing as I set out on this journey toward health. They are the reasons that I will keep searching for the way to be healthy.

I know the eating and exercising and writing all come together somehow and that I must take a holistic approach to health rather than think of nutrition, fitness, and sanity separately. I guess that is why I am blogging about my journey. I know that my mental health is tied in with my fitness level and nutrition. I know that I need to write to keep my sanity. To be completely healthy. So I write.

Writing every day about some new health kick might seem like a crazy endeavor, but it is the way I can keep healthy in more ways than one. I can tell of my nutrition and physical fitness as I stay mentally alert. And maybe somebody besides me will benefit from it all.

When it comes right down to it and I look at my journey as a whole, maybe blogging is not such a silly endeavor after all.
