For many many months now I’ve contemplated about what direction I want to take with this little ol’ blog. I couldn’t figure out if I should I continue posting “How-to” articles? Or should I share with you my own personal fitness journey? One thing was clear – I needed a change to motivate myself to keep writing and to continue my fitness journey.
I then stumbled upon a blogging e-book called “The Simple Blogging E-Book“. I began to work through it, a few pages at a time, and brainstormed my blogging goals. The book forced me to stop and ask myself some tought questions: Who am I? And what do *I* like to write about? What kind of posts do I enjoy writing the most? The answer was simple:
I like to write about me – the things I do, the places I go, the experiences I have with my family.
When I started blogging here I was in a different place in my life. I wasn’t as secure, I was battling postpartum depression, and I was using the blog to force myself to think positive thoughts. I thought that I needed to lose weight – I wasn’t happy with who I was. Since then my focus has changed. I’ve changed. I’m so much more secure. I’ve learned that the more active I am, and the healthier I eat, the more I enjoy life and the size of my jeans doesn’t matter.
I almost quit blogging (but that thought lasted all of 2 minutes) and I decided to continue to blog here. But the focus is changing:
I’m going to write about our day-to-day activities – both mine and my daughters. My training, their sports etc. How we live active.
I’m going to share what we eat on a day-to-day basis. It won’t always be healthy but it will be the truth. I’m hoping that by sharing my day-to-day eats I’ll be more accountable.
I’m going to share with you the ups, the downs and everything in between – though I do hope that there are way more ups than downs
I invite you to join me, and follow along as I share with you my new mantra: Live active, Eat healthy and Enjoy life!
Have you ever changed your blogging focus?
