My first brilliant idea: In honor of my one month, I am giving away a 10$ iTunes gift card that I will have up as a post tomorrow :) In my first month I've earned $10 and I want to give it back to my amazing readers and followers thus far. I thought hard about what was the most super awesome thing I could give away and this is most definitely it! Honestly if you asked me if I wanted 10$ or an iTunes card, I'd pick the card. I would probably spend $10 on groceries (boring), bills (boring), or wine (which I absolutely don't need), but an iTunes card will help power me through my workouts and it's fun :D I wish I could give each of my readers an iTunes card, unfortunately I don't have that kind of money :P. If you wish to enter, come back tomorrow (or in the next few days) and the giveaway post will be up with instructions. This is 100% coming from me, their are no sponsors involved. I want to show my appreciation because having people read, follow and comment has helped keep me motivated and accountable.
Anywayyy back to what this blog is really about. . . getting fit! My workout today was running stairs. I am super proud to say that I ran stairs for 30 minutes today!! My excitement is due to the fact that for the past few months I've only be doing around 20 mins, some days a little more some a little less. I put my all into it the entire time so by 20 minutes I'm usually dead, especially my legs, but today I powered through my pain :D You have to keep pushing yourself in order to improve, right? Here I am exhausted after running today:
Totally collapsed on the couch as soon as I got home, exhausted but with a sense of accomplishment :) (and yes I'm like Adam Lambert with eyeliner, I wear it EVERYWHERE, it's an obsession)
Another thought I had: Since my blog is brand new and I've trying to get myself out there, I've been joining some blog hops. They are mostly geared towards mommy blogs and well I'm a mommy so I figure I can join in. I'd like to know how the fitness/ weight loss bloggers feel about a Fitness Friday Healthy Hop? I have no idea if there are other hops like this out there, I'm sure there are, but I haven't seen any. I would like to get some feedback on whether my fellow health bloggers are interested in participating. So please if you have any thoughts on this either leave me a comment or email me about it :) I think it's a fun way to get more readers/ followers that are interested in getting fit!
Thank You again to everyone who has stopped by and kept me going!!
ETA: I realize this post is ALL over the place but all these thoughts were taking over my mind, I had to get them out :P
