Happy Anniversary!Posted: February 16, 2011
To who? To US! The Lunchbox Diaries has been up and running for one whole month today 😀 Let’s call off work and go eat cupcakes!
No? Okay, maybe later 😉
It may sound silly, but creating and keeping up with this blog has brought me so much happiness. I’ve never felt like I’ve had a thing – if that makes any sense. My brother’s things have been baseball and music (he taught himself to play the guitar and the piano!)
Cory’s thing is being business savvy. I don’t have a picture for that 😉
My mom’s thing is being the huge sports nut. (At a National’s game with 3 – of her 7 – brothers, my cousin and his wife)
My dad’s thing is being a huge music and history buff.
My thing has always been writing – but it was private and only for myself, so I felt like I had nothing to show for it. I felt that I was thing-less.
Don’t get me wrong! That is not meant to be a woe-is-me statement. Writing (and more recently, healthy living/fitness) has always brought me happiness even if it was only for myself. I just never felt like I had an appropriate outlet to showcase it or experiment with it.
Well, it may have taken 23 years, but I finally have a thing that I can call my own 😀 Blogging has made me more excited about the everyday aspect of life. Everything I do and experience serves as inspiration for what I’m going to write about next. I’m more aware and I look forward to every moment – I’m more present – because who knows? It could just so happen to be my next blog post. And that makes me excited.
If you’ve read from day 1, I hope you’ve enjoyed it so far! If you’ve just stumbled across my little corner of the blog world – stick around! I promise you won’t be disappointed 🙂
Now, let’s get back to the basics 🙂
My workout came and went before the sun even rose – yikes. I did the full P90X Shoulder & Arms workout, because I only did 15 minutes of it last week and I really like it. Plus, I’m still working towards my Jennifer Garner arms.
Not there yet. But I’m workin’ on it, guys! 🙂
My breakfast was delish! Yet another cereal combo. While I was creating this concoction this morning, I thought about how fantastic it would be if there was a restaurant that had, instead of a salad bar – a cereal bar! I’d be there all day, everyday 😉 I don’t just eat a plain bowl of cereal, my friends. I add all different kinds of cereal together, I add nuts and fruit. And I love it. Every time 😀
This morning’s mash up was Quaker Oats Oatmeal Squares, Honey Nut Cheerios and Kashi Go Lean Crisp! with almond slivers and half a banana. It was essentially a party in my mouth.
If loving cereal is wrong, I sure as heck don’t want to be right.
I’m off to work, my friends! I’ll catch ya later this afternoon. Again, happy anniversary! 🙂
Question for the morning – What do you enjoy about reading this blog and healthy living blogs in general?
