I'm it! 6 Things You Should Know About Me

Thanks to the lovely Kay, whose real name is actually Kristen, from Best of Intentions for tagging me to share 6 things you should know about me.  I always love reading "about me" type posts from bloggers but I struggle to come up with my own posts.  By answering 6 questions it takes some of the guess work out of it for me so it's a win-win situation all around!

1. How did your blog come about?  This current blog has been around since August of 2012 but I was blogging long before that.  I started with Wordpress before moving to Blogger and then moving back to Wordpress and then back to Blogger.  I decided I wanted to blog way back when as a way to record my life and my journey to a healthier one.  I've never lost sight of that goal but I have certainly struggled to stick with it.  This last year I have been the most consistent with blogging but not the healthy lifestyle.  I don't have plans of giving it all up any time soon, especially since my journey to a healthy lifestyle hasn't even begun yet.

2. If you could meet any blogger in person, who would you choose?  Gosh I have a list of people that I've "met" through blogging that I would love to actually meet in person.  At the top of my list would have to be Alexis from Life by Lex {She's currently on a break from blogging as she recently purchased her first house with her new fiance and is super busy!} because I've known her for about as long as I've been blogging. We may not talk all the time but when we do it's like we picked up right where we left off.

3. Favorite thing to do in your spare time?  It's a big ol' tie between reading and watching TV.  For as long as I can remember I have loved to read.  I also really enjoy watching a good TV series like NCIS, Grey's Anatomy, Gossip Girl, or The Vampire Diaries.  Thankfully either of these activities mean I can spend some time snuggled up with Bo.

4. Name one good deed you did that went unseen.  Whether this counts as unseen or not I'm not sure but I did pay for someones coffee behind me in the drive thru.  I have no idea who they were but I hope they enjoyed their coffee that morning.

5. What's your biggest struggle in life?  My weight has always been a struggle.  I have always felt like I was the bigger girl no matter what group I was hanging out with.  Now looking back at pictures from high school I wish I was that size again.  It's been 5 years since high school now and I've tried losing weight over and over again without ever really sticking to the plan long enough to see real results.  And now maybe it will become a real need to lose weight because of my health which scares me but maybe it's what I need to push me through to see the real results.

6. Tell us something we don't know about you.  I have am missing 2 of my 12-year-old molars and have no wisdom teeth.  I also am missing one of my adult teeth which led to having surgery to have an implant put in so a fake tooth could be attached.

  1. Do you prefer Blogger over Wordpress?

  2. Gosh I truly love every one of those tv shows you listed!!!

  3. Thanks for tagging me, my darlin!
    I feel your pain with your biggest struggle in life. I think if we could realize that we are gorgeous, no matter our size, we would consider it less of a struggle and just an everyday part of trying to better ourselves!

    XOXO, Abby
