September 2011 I started this blog. I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to write about, other than sharing my journey of trying to figure out a healthy lifestyle that fit into my life. That might sound like an easy thing to do, but it was (and sometimes still it) tough.

A year and a half later I’m still here, working out, eating, and writing. I’ve been thinking for awhile now that I wanted to start self-hosting. I’d been putting it off though, not sure if I had the technical knowledge to actually make it happen. 

But over the weekend I took the plunge and just did it. In about an hour I had the new blog up and running. I did it all by myself (YouTube tutorials don’t count, right?) with no panicked phone calls to my brother asking for help. While there’s still lots that I want to do with the blog formatting and really make it mine, I’m definitely headed in the right direction.

I’d be very grateful if those of you who have subscribed or read through readers follow me to You can sign up for emails in the sidebar, or add to your reader.

Thanks again for reading. It really does mean a lot to me.

It’s Been a Long Time Coming
