A BLAST from the PAST - LINK UP!!!

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger... I've been blogging for almost 9 months now, but I don't think anyone (other than my mom) read my blog during the first 5 months of it's existence! But I wrote a lot of great posts during that time that I'm not sure my readers have seen... since I don't think I even had readers back then! So I have compiled 5 blog posts that I either thought were informative or I thought would give you some insight into my life. 

So if you care to look back at a couple posts from the days of yore, here is what I have you this morning!




Believe it or not, I used to run! This post features pictures from a beautiful 9 mile loop I would run. There are a lot of hills on this route, so the 9 miles actually feels like more! If you were ever curious about what beautiful Central PA (where I live!) looks like, here are some great shots!




You all know I love HIIT, but here is my original post where I expressed my love!




The number on the scale doesn't tell me much at all. There more effective ways to track one's progress than what the scale says, and I detail them in this post!




Who doesn't like a good old fashioned rant-y post!?




Many blogs simply give a re-cap of the blogger's day. This is exactly what I did in this post! However, it is a bit more detailed than the normal "what I was up to today" post. If you ever wondered what a day in my life is like- this is a really good example with lots and lots of pictures!


Your turn! Share a post that is a BLAST from the PAST!

 I would love to read a post of your's that I may have missed!

  2. What a great idea! I would have never guessed you were blogging for just 9 months! I love your site. :) I feel the same way about my early readers though...lol. I'm certain I wrote some of my favourite posts have gotten lost in blog land with very few readers since they were in my early days.

  4. I think you were one of the first people to post on my blog (because it's so old, lol)! From when I was running and writing about it more: http://262x2.wordpress.com/2013/12/28/finding-balance-the-importance-of-fun-runs-and-setting-goals/#comments

  5. I love your day in the life post! Your couch..... I had that same couch and I LOVED it. I wish I still had it :( Literally the most comfortable couch ever. And I love how it's big enough that two adults can be laying on it at the same time with plenty of room. When we moved into our new condo we got a new couch, but I really wish we had kept that one... bad decision on my part.

    PS: Your mom's comment is so cute!

    1. We got our couch when we married and you're right- it is great to both be able to lay! I get the long part and Paul gets the short part hehe- mostly because he likes to sit up when we watch TV. The cats have scratched the corners though...

  6. I never would have guessed you've only been blogging for 9 months! You're so great at it! I've been blogging for well over a year and I am pretty sure the only people who read my blog for the first year were my mom and dad. I had quite the following...

  8. Love this idea! Congratulations on nine months.

    It's funny - looking at the fat loss hierarchy pyramid. I'm actually reversing! As in - I used to do all HIIT/Circuits. Then I did powerlifting for about a year, minimal cardio. Now I'm getting into running. I think all of this is so individual specific as I felt a good deal "fluffier" when I was just powerlifting, and am feeling better now that I'm sticking to more running and brisk walks with just a day or 2 of ST thrown in.

    1. Very good point- you're right, every "body" is different! It definitely has a lot to do with what one eats, too (obviously). For me, I never, ever strength trained- I only did steady state cardio. So adding weights and HIIT really woke my body up. That's awesome you're getting into running! I love it so much. :)

  11. Came here from "Running With Spoons" Link Love LinkUp ... I too have been blogging for about 9 months. I don't know that my mom has read any of my posts! My blog is mainly for me, but I figure I'd put it out there for everyone in case it helps. Following you on Facebook now and checking out your past posts. That's a great idea for a blog post!
