Do i have nothing else to write about, or is it just that that is where all my attention is?
So after some thinking i realised that no, training and food is not where all my attention goes to. Its a part of my life, but its only like 15% of my life... i have so much else going on as well. Family, family problems, friends, friends, money issues at times, school, relationships, my feelings etc... but not all of that goes onto my blog... just like with food. The food that i do post is only about 10% of what i eat in a day. It might just be one or two meals i post, and that is not enough for anyone to judge me.
But also, i only post meals if i think they look good. If i am tired, dont have time or energy to make food look good then i dont photograph it. I feel no need to post food photos, but if my food does look good. Or ive decided im going to make it look slightly photographic, then i have no problem taking photos and uploading it... its like i want to share how delicious my food is. I want to share my enjoyment of the meal i had just eatena nd the best way to do that? Take a yummy-looking photo.
But to make it clear, i am not obsessed with taking photos of food or having ot have the perfect, photographic food. If it does look good, say at a restaurant then i will take photos. But that brings me to the second thing. I only take photos for my blog.... if i didnt have a blog, i doubt i would take photos of my food. Now a days i mean my family dont even ask why im standing and taking a picture of my food, they know it goes on the blog.
Just like when i ask to have a picture taken of me on the beach... its more because blog posts are boring to read without pictures, but also i like documenting things (i.e on the beach/at the park/ on a walk etc).
But i also want to bring my focus to that yes, exercise is a big part of my life, but it isnt my whole life. Its about 5% of my day and the rest of the day i spend with friends and family, or in town, or on my own etc etc i do my workout and enjoy it and the rest of the day i do other things. My whole life isnt based around exercise.... This is a question to ask yourself if you feel slightly addicted to exercise. Can you go 3 whole days where you are just with friends and family and little to no exercise and not feel guilty? If you cant, then you might need to think about that for a while
However, feeling slightly restless because you are used to being active isnt the same thing as eating less, feeling moody and anxious because you cant workout.
I try to keep a balance of different posts on my blog, sometimes its personal, sometimes its advice, sometimes its food, sometimes its recipes etc... i try not to have too much of anything as i am more of a general/online help/personal type blog? (hahaah!)
This was just some of my thoughts but i also felt that i wanted to make it clear about food and exercise... hence why i take food photos as that isnt always a healthy thing to do, and also about exercise! :)
If you have any questions its just to ask.
