A New Beginning

ImbackI’ve been away from the blog for awhile. I’ve contemplated quitting it all together, but so much time and love has gone into the making of this blog and building the following that I have that I can’t let myself do that. It’s been about 6 months since Traci or I have blogged consistently. There are a few reasons for this. 

1. I had a baby. She is now 4 months old and is seriously the cutest thing ever. She’s such an easy baby and fits into our family perfectly. It’s hard to believe that we are now a family of FIVE!

2. Traci had a baby. I assume he is equally as perfect as my little girl, but I have yet to meet him! They are also now a family of five, so I’m sure there has been lots of adjusting going on over there!

3. I started a new journey. I have decided to pursue a path as a fitness/life coach. I’ve been doing it for about six months now and I LOVE it. I am seeing BIG changes happen in the people I’m helping. People losing weight, gaining confidence, and BELIEVING in themselves. Seriously, a year ago I didn’t believe in MY self. And here am I now, helping others to live a fuller life. I LOVE it. 

When I first started that venture, I thought I couldn’t possibly do this blog AND that and be successful. I started a new blog specifically for that. I started a new fan page. I started from scratch because it didn’t seem like these two things mixed together. But as I am going more, I realized that the things I share with the people that I’m helping are in the following categories: fitness, faith, food, family, and finances. Guess what. Those are the SAME things I was sharing over here. Exact same. In fact, I feel like now that I have a better handle on things, I am going to be able to be more authentic on this blog. I am going to be able to reach more people and HELP more people. I am going to try to do less sponsored posts (although there will still be some when I find a product I LOVE and want to share with you) and the blog is going to be more about adding VALUE to my readers lives. I LOVE the community that has been founded around this blog. I LOVE all you fabulous readers and I would hate to say goodbye to you. Now is not the time for that. 

It might take a little while to get things going again, and gears will be shifting a little bit, but I think that this is going to be a FABULOUS move for this blog and for myself and Traci. (Although she has NO idea I’m writing this. I hope she’s on board 🙂 )

Thank you all so much for being patient and supportive. I am SO excited about life right now and YOU all are a BIG reason why.
