You need another friend to start a health and fitness blog like you need a hole in the head. Well, tough shit. I'm training for a 70.3 triathlon in August and I plan on complaining about it.
Here are my top 5 reasons why:
1) It can make you famous - a couple years ago my dear friend and business parter Jennifer Roe started her blog and not only did she lose 100 lbs and become an inspiration to many but she met an amazing group of virtual friends who have now become real friends. That lead to the formation of a Rangar team that lead to the filming of a movie. During the filming of said movie she had a nervous breakdown at 3:00 am in my rainbow tutu and trust me, a year from now Jen will be famous.
2) You can get free stuff - My blogger friends get free stuff to review all the time. Jennifer (again) and Linda both got these cool things for "that time" of month.
and Linda got this gizmo so she can pee while standing up!
Who doesn't want a free pStyle urination device!?!
3) You get a public platform to act like a goofball - I know that might not sound exciting to most but anyone who knows me will understand. Rather than explain I submit the following collage of race pics as evidence.
|Yes, I did run a race dressed as a bath loofah.|
4) You (me in this case) will probably lose weight - Keeping publicly accountable helped my role models in their success. Check out what they've done!
5) It can change your life - Read through the amazing blogs out there like Katie's or Meredith's and you'll feel empowered and motivated. They are living examples that you can do anything you put your mind to. They say blogging helped keep them accountable. I think they both have it in them to have done it anyway but I sure am glad they are sharing their journeys.
Okay! My first blog is complete. Figuring out this blogger stuff took too long and I skipped my workout. Thanks to my new found accountability I'll have to double up tomorrow.
Over and out...
