Why did I decide to start a blog with 0 experience?
What am i doing here?
I’m writing a blog! But why? I have 0 previous experience. I haven’t written anything major since high school which is over four years ago, and even then, honors English doesn’t exactly qualify me to write sonnets and things that are really worth reading. BUT- a friend of mine and I were having a conversation recently about the fitness journey I’ve started recently.
“You have to be able to do things for YOU”
This is what she said to me. Now keep in mind, this friend of mine has no children. A part time job. No “serious” responsibilities necessarily- other than being a wonderful and loving wife to her husband, and taking care of her sweet pup. But she was right. I started the fitness journey because I’ve had three children back to back (to back) and on top of finally having the ability to get fit, I’m engaged to be married in 9 months, which supplied the motivation. That was one thing I had for myself.
But what else? I realized I had started to lose myself in the mind-numbing predictability of work-home-babies-sleep-repeat. Between cooking and cleaning, wiping noses and changing diapers, I didn’t always have the most exciting things to do with and for myself. But then it hit me- I could blog! I’m a mom- lots of people are moms, sure. But how many people can say their kids are less than a year apart? More specifically- my first two are TEN MONTHS apart, and my middle and third child are still just a little shy of one year apart. That’s a lot! We spent two months with three babies all under two during 2019. It seems trivial, but it was definitely a challenge!
SO WHAT DO I HAVE TO ‘BLOG’ ABOUT?
ANYTHING! Mostly about me and my kids, obviously- they’re the largest part of my life, if we’re being honest. But I also love to cook, especially since I’m trying to live what I call a ‘moderately healthy’ lifestyle (which is a challenge, considering veggies and I aren’t exactly on a first name basis.) I have lots of things I’ve found that are lifesavers- and some I try that are highly recommended, that after 3 children I can genuinely say are flops. With no other specific goals in mind outside of doing something for myself and sharing knowledge and laughs with others, welcome to my blog!
