If you've ever come by my Blogger Dashboard before, you'd know that this blog has been around for ages. It was created on a particularly busy day at work, the kind of day when deadlines are whooshing past like cars on a freeway and there is so much work to be accomplished that anything else seems more inviting than the immediate job at hand. Plus, opening a blog required peering intently into my monitor and hammering into my keyboard, and from where my boss sat, it really looked like i was doing hard work! :)
But blame it on ADD, procrastination or just plain laziness, this baby has led a still-born existence ever since, with not a single post to its credit. I'd work up the enthusiasm to try out something in the kitcchen, click pictures, jot down the details of the recipe in fly-by bits of paper, but somehow the interest would fizzle out before it worked its way into a proper blog post. So why now, you ask?
Well, apart from the fact that (i) I’m unemployed and have so much time in my hands that I don’t know what to do with it (ii) I’ve been following some incredible blogs that make me want to write again, and that (iii) I’m suddenly having guilt pangs for being in possession of having a perfectly good blogger url that is just being wasted away, I’ve also have had an epiphany of sorts. That I'm at the quarter-century milestone of my life, past the angst-ridden teens, past the age of confusion, when I should be completely and totally in control of my life and finally enjoying life, doing things that I love to do- Except that i don't. I've been trying to lose weight for ages, and I'm still fat. I've been trying to decide what i want to do with the rest of my life; but I’m still stuck in limbo. I never give my 100% to anything, I’m too lazy. So, this blog is going to be my online journal as I go in for a makeover. For a much overdue Operation Clean Up and Start Over. For getting a grip on my life.
So, here's the deal- Fifteen pounds to be lost in two months and a new healthy recipe every other day. Sort of like a Julie/Julia project (not surprising, as I’ve seen the movie only a million times!), but a low-cal fat-free version, if you please!
Wish me luck!
