A little reorganization.

I’ve been doing a little bloggy spring cleaning today. Some of you may have noticed I imported some posts, changed a few links, and got rid of the feed from my other blog. At the beginning of the year I started a second blog to document my lifestyle change – something I resolved to do for New Years. The essence of that resolution was that I was going to get myself healthier in mind, body and soul. This meant changing my exercise and eating, as well as doing things for me, most important of which included embracing more photography.

A couple of weeks ago I announced that I officially started my very own photography business, and I strongly feel that accomplishing that has definitely set me on the right track as far as being successful with this lifestyle change goes. That said, if I am going to do this right, my photography deserves its own space and attention. I do have a website, but I really wanted a blog associated with it for all the photo related things I do on a regular basis. I have changed my other blog, previously known as My Challenge To Change, into a photography only blog simply titled BMP Photography – The Blog. The url has changed as well, to bmpphotoblog.blogspot.com. I’d love it if you went over there and followed me!

The fitness portion of my lifestyle change is not forgotten. I have decided to import those specific posts here to my “regular” blog for a couple of reasons. First, I have more followers here and the more support the better. Second, because I always just thought of that other blog as my “second” blog – not something I paid much attention to, and this process is definitely something that needs my attention!

So where am I? I finished The Shred two months ago and have since signed myself up for a 5k race in June. I am well on my way to being prepared for that and just this Monday ran outside for my first time in a very long time. I am thrilled at my progress so far and have a lot of confidence in myself. After that who knows what will happen. I can only hope that it will spark an interest in more running and more successes. I have joined a class at the gym with my mother that incorporates an hour of goal-setting and healthy eating habits discussion and an hour of exercise with a trainer into my routine every week and I really enjoy that so far. I’m trying to make this happen for myself. And at this point, that is all I can really do.

I feel refreshed after reorganizing things. If only I could say so much for my house!

    Hooray for spring cleaning! I cut down a blog this year, just to much to come up with content for both when one was for "me" and one for my daughter. Now her stuff is with mine. I decided hers just morphed into an awesome two year journal…

    Great post, Beth! I think the change was good and incorporating your fitness posts into this blog will be great!

    Awesome on the 5k! Keep all of us updated on that. I admire runners. I've always wanted to 'love' running and have tried it over and over and do good, but I can't get motivated to stick with it. Not sure why – so I love seeing other people following through!

    Oh good job for being big and brave and signing up for a 5K! I've been running for 26 years now, and I tell you what… it's saved MILLIONS in therapy dollars! You'll do great in this new adventure, I'm just sure of it!

    New follower, by the way (so I can keep up with your running)!
