So we were able to mess with our power cord and get it to work. But I just found myself not wanting to track my food or come here and blog.
I'm really not sure what's going on with me. Maybe just burn out? I think there was a part of me that just didn't think anything was changing or improving. That started to question what the point was?
I have stayed vegan, and eaten mostly the same since I left. I have had a couple incidents with potato chips, but no big binges or non-vegan foods or anything. I don't know. I just feel tired.
I heard a NPR story recently on people who track their behaviors, with the goal of modification. They have their own conference where people come from far and wide to discuss what they track, how they track it and how it has impacted their lives. It was really fascinating. One of the people they interviewed stated that he found that the more ambitious his goals for changing his behavior (in his case, exercise), the more likely he was to fall off the wagon completely and stop trying at all. He suggested that people who want to improve their behaviors should try to make very, very small changes in increments, and wait for those habits to stick before they move on to making another change. This resonated with me, but also was a bit discouraging.
I guess at a certain point, I start to question whether I even care to try any more. Not that I'll go out and eat animal products, but just that I'll spend the time and energy I used to spend trying to change doing something else. (I may not even be able to stick to NOT tracking and be back before you know it. LOL!)
I still love you all!
