So, my sister started a blog and it’s really, really good. Seriously, click the link and read This Coffee Life. She did all the leg work and research on how to make a blog successful, made a fb page for it, the whole nine. Meanwhile, I’m sitting over here thinking about how much effort that must take and shaking my head ‘no’ as I drink my second cup of coffee.
She’s really good at fleshing things out, it must be the Language Arts teacher in her, and I’m just not good at trying… well, anything. I know to have a successful blog that I’m supposed to blog more than once every 4 months and I need to really try to develop content, but we all know that effort has never been my strong suit. Honestly? Nothing is my strong suit. Laziness, maybe. Laziness is probably what I’m best at in this life.
I thought 2019 was going to be a year where I really thrived at working on myself, on reading more, on my blog, on working hard in general, but none of that has happened. The first 13 days have been a total bust. I had these promises of eating healthy for 30 days, tracking my macros every day, no alcohol until February, and I already frigged it all up, but hey, that’s me. I’ll blame circumstances, and some of it really was circumstantial (my excuses have excuses), but honestly, I’m just really bad at staying on course. Always have been. Shrug dot emoji. I’m not a life coach, friends. I’m just gonna hug you and say, “It’s cool, we’ll try again tomorrow” and offer you something unhealthy to eat and maybe a beer or a glass of wine.
To be TOTALLY FAIR, I started getting sick last weekend and while I didn’t use that as an excuse to eat poorly, I couldn’t work out without hacking up a lung to the point of dry heaves because thank you bronchitis. I’m starting to feel more normal today, but I can’t hear out of either ear and the thought of going back to work makes me want to sleep until next weekend because I literally just can’t. GUYS, I CANNOT. Whatever, 2019, I still have time to slay you, but I wont, so maybe 2020? Here here, positivity!
Anywho, so Andi legitimately has her life together and has this beautiful blog, and I’m over here sitting in the same clothes from Friday, wondering if I can do some yoga and eat a vegetable today. The jury is still out on both of those subjects, but we’ll see.
I think I’ll get my 3rd cup of coffee, and yes, I am still on coffee because I didn’t get out of bed until 11:30am, and then decide if I can somehow will myself into being a human being. Is this the quality content you crave? Knowing that someone is as bad at life as you are? Well, look no further fella, you found me. That’s a Chappelle’s Show quote — all of my material is from 2004. Love me through it.
Thanks, Sis, for inspiring me to write my first blog since October.
See y’all in April.
