Though this is my 4th post, today was the day that I officially “launched my blog”.
Not going to lie, I was a bit nervous posting the link to my facebook and my instagram. I think it’s the whole “vulnerability” factor. Although my fitness instagram and blog are public, sometimes I still convince myself that no one is actually reading it so I am less afraid of being 100% real. As soon as the link is posted, that little bit of insecurity starts kicking in. Do I really want people to read my writing? Is there a gramatical error in here that just made someone really annoyed? What if they think it’s terrible? Are they going to judge my race results? DOES THIS DARN THING EVEN WORK?
I had to remind myself of the true purpose of this blog. It’s not about flaunting my skills/results/knowledge..or lack there of all these. It’s about being real and connecting with others who are trying to balance the craziness of being healthy but wanting a giant bowl of ice cream, getting in workouts but wanting to curl up on the couch and watch crap T.V and all the other mind battles we face on a daily basis.
Or I can still convince myself that no one is reading this despite all my social media posts and I am actually just talking to myself…now I feel awkward.
But if you are reading this..THANK YOU! and I hope you continue.
