Hi, my name is Nikki and I suck at streaking.
I was sitting here feeling terribly guilty that I’ve failed miserably at the October Blogging Challenge (yup, it’s been 5 days since I posted last. Oops) and then it hit me. I always fail at daily ‘challenges’.
There was the time I tried the #beaststreak daily running challenge two years ago and burnt out after only a couple weeks because I overtrained and hurt my leg.
And then there was the time last year that I tried another running streak and same thing, burnt out due to overtraining and a very near brush with plantar fasciitis.
Which brings me to the October Blogging Challenge. Days 1-12 rocked. I felt inspired, I felt productive, I had lots of ideas. But then Thanksgiving weekend came and although I made it through the actual weekend itself, I lost my ‘oomph’ when I came out on the other side. This week was a super busy one for me and I just had to make choices – sleep or blogging. I chose sleep 5 glorious nights in a row.
It shouldn’t really have been left to the end of each night anyway but here are some of the things I was doing instead of writing or scheduling my daily blog posts…
So yeah, it’s been a busy 5 days. Just not busy with blogging of any kind. Oops. I’m already feeling my creative spark coming back though so I’m hoping to jump back up on that bandwagon this week.
