I wanted to give you all (the 3.3 readers that I have), some sort of idea of what I plan to do with this space. First and foremost, I want to say that I am not going to be holding myself to any sort of category. I am way to ADHD (diagnosed at 7 years old, baby…SQUIRREL!), way too much happens in this gourd of mine, and I have so many interests, stories, etc. If I want to talk about the GIGANTIC BLISTER that I got from running my marathon, I am going to.
It wasn’t so so bad, but it was still hilariously large.
If I want to share recipes that I am particularly proud of, I am going to.
If I want to talk about all things running, HELL YEAH I WILL.
If I want to talk about lifting, it will happen.
Obviously, I am going to be talking about my lyfe, my husband, and the little things.
You can definitely expect posts on Crohn’s, my mental struggles and triumphs, and topics that I find important to share. I am proud of my outlook on my disease and the fact that I REFUSE to play the victim. I take incredible care of myself but still live, love, eat, enjoy, and experiment. Sure, I am more careful than most, but the fact that I have had chronic, non-remission Crohn’s for 12 years and yet have achieved physical accomplishments that many perfectly “normal” people have not is pretty darn cool. And most importantly, can be done with a sense of humor.
I will post on Chicago, of course, but this is not a Chicago-focused blog. I want to talk about traveling to Europe on our honeymoon, my hometown of Atlanta, and my education in Charlottesville and Manhattan.
I’m going to chill out with pics for now. Except for this one.
For the next few weeks, I imagine work on the blog and posts will vary in frequency–there will be days when I have a lot of time to work on this endeavor, and other days when I have very little. As a waitress, my phone etc must be off at work for the most part, so that makes it difficult. Also, right now I have a lot of things that I want to say and put out there. I am going to try to space things out, to keep y’all coming back (ya’hear?), but again, these are all experiments.
Just wanted to give a heads up, and, more so than anything, thank you so much for the read. Even if I only get a handful of readers, or even none at all (#epicfail), I am happy to have finally committed to do something for myself. And for Caitlin 😀
And because for unknown reasons, this quote has been floating around in my head:
