I decided for my first blog post to explain why and how I chose to start a blog. A few days ago, the thought entered my mind to create a blog after I had a conversation with my friend, Jenny, about a YouTube video. I had just discovered a YouTube fitness channel called FitnessBlender and I was pinning the heck out of those videos. Jenny soon texted me and basically told me that my pins were golden and I told her I found the jackpot. While watching the videos, I thought to myself that the girls that were doing the workouts had a pretty sweet job. All they had to do was complete the moves. They didn’t have to talk or anything because there was a voice over giving directions. I told Jenny that I wanted in on that job and she half-jokingly suggested that we start our own YouTube fitness channel. At first I laughed, but later I couldn’t get the idea out of my head. I knew it would be a lot of work and we would be competing against our idol, Cassey Ho of Blogilates (if you don’t know what this is, check her out NOW. Life changing. Plus she’s so adorable). I then thought hmm..maybe a blog would be a better launching point. I let it sit for a day and since I’ve been on this eating clean and fitness journey, I thought maybe I should start a blog for myself to document my recipes and workouts! So here it is. I did it. My only concern is keeping up with it when classes start back up in a couple of weeks. I will try my best. Oh and also, taking lots of pictures. Kind of an issue when I’m not much of a “take a picture of everything” person. Plus I like to eat my food once its done. We’ll see how this goes. Wish me luck!
