So it has been an interesting and amazing past couple of months. For those of you who have read my blog, you have probably been wondering where I have been, for those of you who just found my blog, welcome! Back in June I moved into a different division of my company. I moved into experiential marketing or events. To say that I like my job is an understatement. I LOVE my job and could not be happier. I have been a part of some amazing projects including a Target Fashion show and the Lady Gaga Tour. But something happened when I started my new job… I lost my balance. I have come to find out that losing your balance is very easy to do in New York City. In fact it can be very easy to lose your balance anywhere. With my new job came lots of responsibility and my health took a back seat. It was hard to make it to the gym and eat healthy with the long hours and traveling that I was doing. Pretty soon the numbers on the scale started creeping up.
In November I decided that I needed to start writing again and finally in February my site was ready. I wanted my site to reflect what I would be writing about. My focus for my blog will be the journey to find a healthy balance in the City that never sleeps. I know I am not the only one that struggles with balance so I hope I can help others find their balance. I have to thank my fellow health bloggers for inspiring me to start writing again. One blog in particular really inspired to me, it’s called Walk to the Mailbox, it is “a running memoir so that one day, when she can’t walk to the mailbox, she will remember why I joined the 50 States Marathon Club”. The blog is written by Gina and she has decided to run a marathon in all 50 states, her blog is full of funny, real and inspiring stories. If you haven’t read it, I highly suggest reading it from the beginning, certain stories will make you laugh out loud and by the end you will want to start running. I want to run.
To start getting back into a healthy balance I have set a couple of goals. I have always been one for extreme goals.Which I never end up sticking to and when I don’t stick to them I get defeated and give up. So I decided to set a reasonable goal. My first goal is to take two spin classes a week on Tuesday and Thursday mornings and two classes on the weekends for one month. After a month I will assess how I did and take on a new goal. Also to kick off getting back into writing, I have decided to participate in Life After Bagels, Vegan for a Week Challenge. So welcome to my “new” blog. I am glad I can write about my journey on getting back to a healthy balance. Stay tuned for my post on the Vegan for a Week Challenge. Until then!
