Whether or not ‘Happy Birthday’ is spoken today, there is a good reason to celebrate this last day of August:
Happy 5 Year Anniversary KERF!
This blog started as a weight loss food journal called Sweat Eat Sleep Repeat on August 31, 2007. I was freshly married, working in public relations and just beginning to learn more about good nutrition and eating habits. I never [ever] could have imagined what it would become!
Five years of daily meals? I still can’t believe it myself. What’s even cooler is that if I want to know what I did on any given day in that time period, I can find out within seconds. It’s a very handy tool!
I’m not quite sure what’s coming next. I will most definitely be blogging about food and life, but I’m not sure how much my daily format will change. I’ll likely drop down to 1-2 posts a day for a while, but my organized self prefers the simplicity of 3 meals a day, so hopefully I’ll get back to that as time allows.
I imagine my meals will become more parts and less wholes. What I mean is – instead of an elaborate meal all in one bowl, I’ll probably eat more ingredients one-by-one (because whenever I’m busy I tend to do that more): yogurt, whole fruit, toast, egg.
KERF has always been a reflection of my life – through a full-time job, going back to school, my internship, traveling, moving, opening the bakery, settling down as a full-time blogger (x2) and pregnancy, so I hope this next phase of motherhood will be just as exciting to watch unfold.
While at times it can be incredibly overwhelming, blogging is truly a joy to do every day, and I have each and every one of you to thank for your loyalty, comments, friendship and enthusiasm!
I wanted breakfast today to be quick and easy and enjoyed it reading in bed!
Nature’s Path Flax Raisin Bran cereal with a white peach, more raisins, sunflower butter, milk, half a tiny banana and a white peach.
I had a conversation with the peaches guy at the market on Wednesday about white verses yellow. His whites were sweeter but the yellows had more flavor. I got a couple of each to try and decided today that I much prefer yellow! The white definitely lacked the tart flavor I love so much about peaches.
Sippin’ on the raspberry leaf!
Here’s to five more years!?
