Happy Happy Friday! Today is my 3 year Blog Anniversary!
Last year I kinda missed my anniversary because last year, today, I was forced to move out of my apartment because of some gross apartment issues and had to move back home to my parents. While that was not a situation I expected, it all turned out to be amazing. I probably wouldn’t have started my business. I have developed an even better appreciation for cooking and a better relation with my body/food. I also wouldn’t have saved so much money/paid off debt and not been able to eventually buy a condo/townhouse (winter goals), if I didn’t leave Hoboken. Everything happens for a reason and it all worked out!
Back to my Blog Anniversary! Wow- 3 years. I had just gotten into fitness and started running a few months prior and look at all that has changed since then. I ran a marathon, became a personal trainer, a cycling instructor, to name a few awesome accomplishments. It’s crazy how your life can change in 3 years and even from the day to day. This blog has helped me meet new people (if I didn’t start this blog I may not have met Jen!!), experienced new events, and just been able to document my journey.
To be totally honest, I didn’t even know it was my blog anniversary until this morning, so I decided to edit my Friday Favorites Post and add my thoughts above!
So to celebrate Friday, 3 years, here are some favorites that made me smile this week.
Favorite Things I bought:
Fall Shopping at Old Navy! I did good! Three pairs of pants, a jean dress, a cardigan, a top, a sweater and some adorable gray booties. I needed an update to my wardrobe. I also had to go up a pant size. Now that I don’t run ALL the miles and I lift heavier weights my legs and booty have become more muscular, hence the bigger pants size. In the past, would I have been depressed and thought I was “fat”? Yes. But now I know that pants, a scale, etc. doesn’t define you. My legs let me squat 75 lbs. and run a marathon. They are pretty awesome.
Ok, so I will admit it, I can be cheap and not spend money and use something until it’s worn to the ground. AKA my i.d. badge at work, on the left and new on the right. I got a “chain” all blinged out at a new to me store, Charming Charlie and the actual i.d. holder at Vera Bradley. So now I got some bling and a fun animal print to wear each day!
