I am so excited to share with you, if you already haven't heard ... which would be surprising because I'm pretty sure all of North America heard me scream yesterday afternoon, that I WON Rita's giveaway from Fitblogger.
I could not be happier right now! I was just thinking to myself the other day: how can I make this blog more impactful, more inspiring, more ME? How can I create a mission statement for the goals that I really want to attain with this? With out giving a lot of the details away, I had a mini-epiphany of why I'm here in the Fit Blog world. I really truly believe in this community. I really truly believe that each and every one of us have the opportunity to not only change our lives, but to inspire and cheer on others.
Which is why this giveaway came at a perfect time. I am already feverishly working on a new format (I'll be moving to wordpress!) and pinning down a new domain name. I am so thankful for all of your support and readership - so I hope you continue to follow me here until the switch - and afterwards at my new home!
I would appreciate any honest feedback or suggestions you might have to help my new site become fabulous..

In other news, life is moving along splendidly. I'm .2lbs away from hitting my 50lbs loss mark! Whoot! I also got the chance to talk with my dad last night, who is seriously my hero. He just finished his 25th marathon at 56 years old, at 4hours and 32minutes. WOW. I told him about this blog, (something I've never shared with family/friends) the amount of weight I'd like to lose, and my goal to run a marathon before I'm 30.
Knowing me, my laziness, my never-following-through-on-anything attitude, I was worried he would laugh in my face at these seemingly insane goals. Do you know what he said?
You can do it.
For some reason, that was all I needed to hear.
