The reasons to blog and read blogs seem unending. As a fairly new blogger, I’m still discovering all the new and exciting things blogging has to offer. Undoubtedly, for me, one of the best things about blogging is that it makes me accountable for living a healthy and balanced life. I’ve become more aware of what I’m putting in my body and working harder to keep it healthy and active.
But I digress! That’s not what I wanted this post to be about at all. I encountered another reason yesterday that showed me why blogging is the best. Connections – it’s all about connections! Yesterday through the blog world, I came across another blogger living in NYC from my hometown area (Melissa), sent a fellow blogger a job link (which she applied to), discussed a potential fun run (with Dori), and felt much relieved to read that so many other runners worry about running in the dark (it’s not just me) and take necessary precautions (Caitlin – comments section).
It felt great to be so connected!
What are some interesting and inspiring ways you’ve connected with other bloggers?
Now on to my day…
Breakfast yesterday was a multi-grain English muffin with peanut butter on one side and jelly on the other with a splash of light cranberry juice.
Lunch was… can you guess? Leftovers!! I actually think this was better the second time around.
Snacks for the afternoon were Greek yogurt with oats and granola, and an afternoon apple (no pic of the apple) before the gym.
I hit the gym after work because I wanted to get in a quick speed workout before the Turkey Trot on Thursday morning. Here was my workout:
3.1 miles in 25:20
.9 mile – for a total of 4 miles in 34 minutes
30 alternating leg crunches
I did notice that my left foot is hurting a little bit. It’s not unbearable, just a weird pain underneath the ball of my foot. I’m hoping it’s nothing serious and that it feels better by Thursday.
Once I got home from the gym, I flew into action. I ate, showered, vacuumed, packed and tidied up. I was too exhausted to go to any great lengths with my dinner. This is what I managed to scrape together:
Amy’s Organic Lentil and Vegetable Soup, some cheddar cheese and two dill pickles – from varying jars. But then my body also told me it was craving peanut butter, so I had this for dessert:
And then it was basically time for bed. Seriously – my days are disappearing! I was able to squeeze in a few more pages of Copperfield before I passed out. I have a feeling I may be able to finish it this weekend!
I’m switching up my schedule a bit and trying to post a daily recap of the full day on the following morning. We’ll see if this works better with my schedule.
If you’re a blogger, what’s your blogging schedule (if you have one)? Do you post several times a day, once a day, once a week? What time(s) of day work best for you?
And a general question: when (time of day) do you most frequently “browse” other blogs?
I get out of work today (Wednesday) at 3:00 and am then hopping on a train upstate. I’ll be cooking with my momma tonight and running the Turkey Trot in the morning, so I’m not sure if I’ll get another post in before then. Then it’s off to Utica for Thanksgiving with the Callahans! 🙂
P.S. – I cried twice while watching The Biggest Loser last night. I just can’t help it! I also want Amanda to come back at the end and look as hot as Rebecca did. I think she can do it.
