LauraLovesFitness Turns Three!

iStock_000016093894SmallWow! It feels like it was just yesterday I was writing about LauraLovesFitness hitting the two-year mark. Now here we are 365 days later – well, 368 to be exact – celebrating the last of the toddler years for my baby blog.

This marks the 311th post published since July 11th, 2011. Topics have ranged from the importance of flexibility training to the importance of taking care of our mental health while focusing on physical fitness. You’ve read about a wide variety of favorites including Tabata workouts; lo-cal cocktail recipes and must-haves for my fridge. You’ve listened to me chat with fitness powerhouses on Lifestyle Accountability, 2FitChx and Curtis Harwell Fitness Radio.  You’ve learned about the ups and downs in my life as a corporate video producer. You’ve even shared my grief and sent supportive messages following some serious shake-ups including my dad’s heart surgery and the loss of several loved ones.

The topics vary from week to week, but I continue to write each and every post with the same purpose that inspired me to start this blog in the first place: to motivate people to take better care of themselves. Not everyone likes to exercise. Not everyone wants to choose celery sticks over cheesecake. However, if I’ve inspired just one person to find some sort of physical activity that makes him or her feel good; pack frozen grapes instead of chocolate covered ones for a family picnic or decide to unwind after a bad day at the gym instead of the bar, then I have plenty to celebrate on this special occasion.

Anyone who follows me on Facebook and Twitter knows I sometimes repeat my favorite quotes. In that vain, here are five posts from the past year that I deem worthy of a second read.  (Of course, I’d love to hear if there are one or two on your list!)

Why Fitness Should Be All About You

If you haven’t connected with me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram yet, I hope you will soon. Consider it a birthday present! And stay tuned for exciting things to come in the months ahead. While I don’t want to spoil the surprise just yet, I can tell you if you live in New York, you’ll be seeing me on television soon.

Of course, I’ve saved the best for last and that is a heartfelt thank you to my family, friends and all my readers. Whether you’re a lifelong bestie who signed up for a blog subscription on day one or part of the #fitfam I found in the social media world, I appreciate anyone who takes time out of a busy day to check in. Moving forward, I’d love to know which topics you’d like to read more about as well as the ones you’d prefer to see less frequently. Three years into the blogosphere, I realize more than ever how much of a team effort is involved to stay the course on this lifelong journey to have fun, be fit and feel fabulous!
