It is the third day of Spring. 29 F outside and the earth smells of water. I took the dog for his morning walk. I had a cup of tea. I don’t know what I am going to do today. I have to lose some weight, but over the last month I have been gaining weight again. I guess I have to bite the bullet and just quit eating so much.
I have a little money in the bank now, but not a lot. There might be enough to spend some to promote this blog, though there is nothing here to promote. What would I do, buy advertising to promote my personal journal? Sounds like a dumb plan. Maybe I should go back to writing poetry. My three book reviews are not getting any traffic. Maybe I should sell herbs. Maybe I should buy some more herbs.
The only way I have managed to lose weight over the last few years was when I went over to a plant based diet. I may switch over and do that today. I seem to gain weight like crazy on dairy and eggs. I have been doing some light weight lifting for the past week, but it is nothing to challenge me. I walk in my room and I walk the dog in the yard. I have been cutting the drinking out of my life. Perhaps this journal will become the chronicle of my transformation.
I have some things to think about this morning. I have some major changes to make in my life. I can’t go through life as an obese alcoholic any more. I have to get my life together and make something out of what time I have left on the earth. The sun is shining this morning and it is time to get going on my work. I don’t need to sell anything to become famous and rich. I need to find ways to help people and write articles for this blog. No more wondering what to do every day to pass the time. I need to meditate, and think, and write.
