…I woke up and decided to start a blog! It’s crazy to think that (a) I’ve been doing this for that long, (b) I didn’t quit, and (c) that there are people still around reading my random musings!
Five years is a long time. I mean, people have “5 year plans.” In five years, I could have…
- attended college and graduated. (Good thing I already had that one under my belt.)
- had a few babies. (I did have one!)
- moved across the country. (Oh wait, I did that.)
- changed careers. (Yeah, I did that too.)
- achieved world domination. (I didn’t get started seriously until about 3 years ago, so I’ve got some time.)
I know that the past few years, I haven’t been posting as often and lately my content can be kind of Chloe focused, but hey, that’s life right? And this is a blog all about finding a balance in life. I thought it would be fun to take a look back at how I got into this space and how it’s changed over the past 5 years!
This was sort of a weird year for me. I was settling into my new career and my new EARLY morning wake up calls. I didn’t have a computer always at my disposal which made blogging kind of difficult. Being a fitness professional requires different than “normal” hours, you’re constantly physically active and you’re mentally and emotionally drained since we sort of work as therapists as well. It makes for an exhausting day, so this blog was getting pushed aside for rest and other home/dog chores when I made it home for the day. I still loved it, but I was loosing steam. I didn’t get guest bloggers when I was traveling. I didn’t have any posts scheduled ahead of time. I just needed a “break” in order to find out my new blogging normal.
My goal for this year is to continue blogging, but to be more regular on my posting! I hope to blog at least 3 times a week and to get my posts scheduled ahead of time. I know we’re only a month in, but so far so good. I plan to keep blogging about life in general. Balancing posts on Chloe, recipes, workouts, funny stories, race recaps and just life updates! I want this to be a place that I continue to enjoy writing and sharing my journey. I hope you all continue to stick around and enjoy this ride of life with me. Juggling everything can be pretty crazy, but after all, isn’t life A Balancing Act?
Thanks for joining me on this awesome ride. I can’t wait to see what else this blog has in store for me! Stay tuned for something extra special this week. You’ll be glad you did!
