Have you ever noticed when one aspect of your life changes, it has an affect on others? Or at least makes you look at other aspects of your life differently. The last 6 months or so have done that for me. We've know for a while that our lives were about to change in a big in 2015. And those changes have slowly started happening.
One change that was never mentioned was our temporary move to an apartment here in Savannah. The owner of the house we were renting really wants to sell his house. He has been gracious enough to extend our lease to allow TJ to finish school. That was also when we originally thought we would be moving. When we realized TJ couldn't start school until August, due to GI Bill caps, we knew we'd be living here longer than planned, so in effort to save a little money and allow the owner to finally put his house on the market, we found a small apartment with a short term lease.
But that's just one change that has started happening for us. Another change for us is a more ongoing, can-be-done-anywhere type of change. And that's our continous move to become a healthier family. Admittedly, it's more me than anyone else, but I figure what I can do to help my family is a step in the right direction.
I've shared my definition of healthy before and that still holds true. I think it encompasses more than just fitness and nutrition. It's about health and wellness as well. And the more I research, the more I realize I want to take this blog in that direction. I want to share the ways in which we are becoming a healthier family through healthy eating, fitness, using natural products, taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint and more.
I'm not claiming to be an expert but I'm learning and researching and I want to share with you what I find out. So over the next few weeks (or possibly months) this blog is going to go through some changes. It will be less focused on fitness and more on overall health, which of course does include some of the some same topics as before, but I want to expand to more topics about how all of us can achieve the best version of us possible.
Does that mean perfection? Absolutely not! There will be treats and "cheats" if you will along the way. Indulgences are ok in moderation and I will definitely be doing just that You should too, but it's more about being a better person overall.
What else does that mean for the blog? Well, I'm working on a new name (which is a lot harder than I thought it would be) and a new design and that may take a while. I have a vision in my head and I want to work hard to achieve that vision. I want have the information you want on the blog in an easy-to-find way that keeps you coming back. I want to find a way to allow you to connect with each other to help and answer questions. It's going to take a while and will be a work in a progress, but I am excited about the changes that will be taking place.
Being healthy is about the mind, body and soul and that's what the future of this blog will be about.
