Sometimes, I’m embarrassed by this blog.
Like this morning during a work meeting when my boss pulled it up. He did that to show a client I know what I’m talking about regarding blogging. And I do. I understand the ins and outs of blogging and linking and SEO and building traffic.
But despite the momentary embarrassment, I’m really not embarrassed. I’m glad my blog isn’t anonymous and I’m glad it’s a part of me. I’m glad that I post photos of myself and my life. I’m proud that people can see me and recognize me and know me because of this blog.
(And I’m glad I can talk about makeup. It’s my second day wearing Bare Minerals and I’m seriously in looooove.)
I’m glad I’m open about my struggles with binge eating, and overcoming verbal/mental abuse, therapy and making my life better. I’m glad I am honest about being healthier and share so much of myself with people who relate.
I just needed to say that and sort out my own feelings on the matter. It was an embarrassing moment, but I’m not embarrassed. Not by a long shot.
This morning’s workout was great! I spent 45 minutes at the gym doing cardio and some upper body strength training. I realized this morning while checking myself out in the mirror that my legs are definitely smaller. I need to take my measurements at some point, but I’m pretty sure I am finally shrinking again.
I have a therapy session this afternoon. I’m excited because I’ve actually been doing amazing in the past three weeks. Something clicked in my head and I realized I’m stronger than the crap in my life. I’m resilient and strong. Since things have been going well with eating and exercise and standing up for myself I’m thinking we might touch on the subject of my anxiety.
Today is a good day. I feel good. It’s a great start to the week. Hope you all are having just as great a day!
If you are a blogger have you ever been embarrassed by your blog? Do you keep it anonymous or not share the URL? As a blog reader would you ever be embarrassed to meet a blogger?
