Project 2014

I have lost my writing mojo.

I find myself not having a whole lot to say. Whenever I sit in front of my laptop I find myself coming up blank. The reason behind my writer's block is because I haven't really been working out like I should be (if at all). How can you write in a fitness blog if you aren't working on being fit yourself? Well, it's nearly impossible! I truly believe that I gain clarity of mind when I exercise my body.

Another reason that I've sort of ignored my blog is because I've been preoccupied with a few career related goals. Instead of running on my treadmill at night I have been studying for an exam that I REALLY wanted to pass. I did pass and as a result, I think things will only get better from here on out.

Thus, the storm has passed and I am now ready to rebuild and regain my mojo. It just so coincides with the new year, which is rapidly approaching. It seems as good a time as any to set new goals and milestones for myself.

My first goal is to stop using Splenda. This will be REALLY HARD for me to accomplish. For the past 7+ years I've been adding Splenda to EVERYTHING! Everything from my morning coffee to fresh strawberries! Luckily, I've already started trying to ditch the Splenda. I bought a box of Stevia packets and for the past three weeks I've been using it in my coffee. What I've found is that I don't get as many migraines. I still get them, but just not as many. I'm not sure if it's the Splenda-free coffee or if it's just a matter of coincidence. Either way, I'm sticking to Stevia.

My next goal is to stop using Coffeemate creamer. It is made completely out of chemicals. Before, I didn't really care about the chemicals in my creamer, but as I'm getting more informed I've found that it's just better to get as close to natural as possible. Thus, I'm going to start using low-fat milk instead of creamer.

Yet another goal is to stop drinking Diet Coke. This is going to be SOOOOOOO HARD for me. There is nothing like a cold Diet Coke with dinner. It is just so refreshing! Yet again, this is another "food" in my diet that is made out of chemicals. In the past, I have tried to leave the Diet Coke behind but it has proven to be a very hard vice to get rid of. I plan to just set my mind to the idea that Diet Coke is OFF LIMITS for me. I always accomplish what ever I set my mind to, so it'll happen.

So what the hell am I going to drink in 2014???

Plain ole H2O. It'll be boring to the taste buds, but best for my body. My ultimate goal is to only drink water, black coffee, milk and almond milk by mid-2014

Let's see if I can do it!

(What do you know!?!? I wrote a post almost effortlessly just now. Maybe I'm not as mentally blocked after all!)
