Quality vs. Quantity

Hey everyone,

As you may have noticed, things have slowed down a little bit over here. Work has been increasingly hectic lately, leaving less and less time for me to work on this blog.

Up until this point, I had been on a roll with a blog post every (week) day, an occasional weekend post, and recipes on the regular. Truth be told, getting posts up on a consistent basis has been extremely satisfying for me. Taking the time to write on a regular basis has been beneficial for the blog, as well as for my actual job (I’m a writer). And I love the habit I’ve gotten into of taking pictures more than twice a year.

Unfortunately, the way my schedule has shifted, I’m not going to be able to keep up with a daily posting schedule. Not without defaulting to lower quality posts, that I ultimately wouldn’t feel proud of publishing.

Quality vs. Quantity

I had an epiphany the other night. I was thinking about my recent shift from quantity to quality in my workouts (as you may recall), and realized that the same principle applies to my view of nutrition.

I see people fail constantly on diets that attempt to modify the quantity of food they eat (eat less, eat more, 3 big meals, 6 small meals, no carbs on weekdays – essentially any form of calorie counting). In my opinion and experience, modifying the quality of food we eat makes more sense. It’s way more delicious, and is by far the most effective way to make long-lasting, beneficial changes to our health (but more on that at a later date).

Things truly came full circle when I realized that choosing quality over quantity is the right way to run this blog, as well. I’d rather post every other day, and really have something interesting to say, than struggle to post word salad everyday.

Shifting Gears

I expect that the next few weeks will be a bit of a transitional period while I figure out what posting schedule works best.  Don’t worry, I won’t go radio silent on you by any means.  I’m thinking somewhere in the 3-4 posts a week range will work well.  And I’m completely open to suggestions! Please let me know any and all of your thoughts in the comments section.

Thanks for reading.

Amy
