I realized that I tend to do things in cycles. I lose weight, I gain weight. I work my sites, I ignore my sites. There are very few things that generate a sustained effort.
Thinking about this makes me wonder why. Is it the immediacy that we have been promised through the internet that creates the expectation of immediate success? Or at least immediate access? Is it part of my childhood in seeking new experiences but not wanting to give up on treasures?
Perhaps just considering the nature of this cycle will help me get through the waning period faster and go back into the upward momentum with more sustained effort. Like putting on a sweatshirt but still wearing shorts when it is 50 degrees (f). I need to bridge or even flatten my curves to a higher plateau.
I really am not a flake. Just a cyclist. :)
