Happy Monday! Monday is the day I’m proclaiming will be my weekly posting day. I tried this last year when I was posting two times a week and it didn’t quite work out – but I’m hoping this time I can stick to it (not even hoping – I will!)
As we’re still early-ish into January, 2019 outlook posts (in my opinion) are still totally suitable. So, I thought this time I would focus on where I’m at health & fitness wise at the moment, what the plan is for 2019, and also answer some Q&As that I asked for via Instagram stories!
Unless this is your first time here, you’d know that I got my ass together to focus on my health & fitness back in July 2017. At the end of 2017/beginning of 2018 I turned things up a notch – I was in the gym weightlifting and/or HIIT-ing 5x a week, I downloaded MyFitnessPal for a period of time to get my nutrition (a little bit) in check, and honestly, I just started to really enjoy the process over the course of those 52 weeks.
My photographer asked me recently – “what are your plans with your blog in the new year?” The question sort of took me aback – it’s similar to when people ask me where I’m going with my career. I realised that I’d given it no thought (blogging in 2019, I have thankfully given my career many thoughts), and actually, I had no idea where I was going with my blog in the new year.
Over the course of 2018, I feel like I found myself in a good place with my blog. As I’ve mentioned before, I started focusing on writing blogs with more substance, blogs that I would like to read myself, blogs that were honest, raw and little less fluffy around the edges. I liked writing these blogs, and actually, people seemed to like reading them too (grateful)! Towards the end of 2018, I became a bit fatigued with my blog. I mean, blogging isn’t what is used to be. Stunning photos on Instagram is where the focus lies right now and a number of names have been slowly dropping out of the blogging landscape. I guess it felt like tumbleweed was blowing across the blogging world as we know it and I decided to go with it.
That said – it’s a brand new year and, like many other bloggers, I’m setting some goals and changing things up around here a little bit in 2019.
