Hi Friends! How’s your Thursday treatin’ ya? It’s Friday-eve! Are you doing the happy dance? I am!
Another stellar day today on this end. An early morning client session followed by some “social-cizing” with a great friend I haven’t seen in months. I love getting together to catch up with friends for exercise, rather than for meals whenever possible. And later this afternoon I am going to finally see “Eat, Pray, Love”. I haven’t read the book, so this time I’m going to be backwards by seeing the movie first and THEN reading the book when I can envision the characters and locations as they were portrayed in the film.
So today is a special day for me! Break out the healthy cake! My baby turns one! In this case, the “baby” I refer to is this blog, FitFeat!
I can’t believe a YEAR has flown by already. I opened the “doors” to FitFeat on August 26 last year with a single photo post. I remember how excited I was to write my first post the next day. I also remember wondering if I’d really take the time to blog and actually ‘stick with it’ for more than a few weeks. And here we are a year later. I would NEVER have imagined the great friends I have been lucky enough to make along the way. Thank you to each and every one of you who reads FitFeat, whether you have been here from the beginning or whether you are just finding it for the first time.
It’s been a great year! I’ve learned so much: about myself, about others, about blogging and social media! Not a minute goes by that I don’t think, “oh that would be a great topic on the blog!” – I only wish there were more hours each week to blog more often!
At first I thought for the blogiversary post I’d link back to some of my favorite posts from the past year. But then I decided it’s always better to focus on the future. So with the FUTURE in mind, I can now officially announce that I have been accepted into the Natural Chef program at the Bauman College of Holistic Nutrition & Culinary Arts!
You all know how passionate I am about eating healthfully to nourish our bodies, and as a personal trainer I believe nutrition is the major part of any physique transformation. So I’m going to open a new chapter in my education and career journey. I’m so excited I can hardly stand it. This has been in the works for some time, but I didn’t want to speak too soon before I knew for sure that I was accepted and then actually enrolled.
I think it will be fun to look back at the photos of food I prepared back when I first started the blog and compare them to how the food will look after I’ve been in the program a while. (Goodness, let’s hope there’s a big improvement! LOL!)
I hope you’ll follow along with me on this journey. I’m sure I’ll have even MORE new tips to share and even MORE new food photos!
Have a TERRIFIC Thursday blog buds! See you soon!
