I can’t believe that one year ago today I started writing this blog. I honestly didn’t know if anyone would ever read it. I started things off with just a basic log of my eats and some outfit ideas. I’ve loved looking back at some of my old entries!
Me one year ago!
I can honestly say that blogging has really changed my life and given me an outlet for my passions in food, fitness, fashion and life in general. Being a part of the blogging community has given me so much inspiration, I can’t believe that a year ago I didn’t know what a green monster was, had ever had nut butter in my oats, tried sun warrior protein powder, ate kabocha squash or baked my own bread.
I feel like I’ve changed so much over the last year and I love that all of it has been documented through this blog. Its been a great journey:
- I started running then decided to do the Great North Run
- I got injured training for the Great North Run
- Did a big budget challenge and cleared my credit card
- Completed the Great North Run
- Started a proper yoga class
- I became a vegetarian
- Started to gain control over snacking and bingeing
- Coordinated bloggers secret Santa
- Attended my first blogging event
That’s just the half of it! I feel happier and healthier than I ever thought possible.
