I’ve been thinking about the future of this blog A LOT. While I’m not saying my marathon days are completely over over, for now, they are definitely on the shelf. A pretty high up shelf. Life post-pregnancy is almost like having a whole new body – a body which I want to look after and let heal before I push it too far. I want to return to running at some point, but that’s a very fluid target!
I’ll be sharing more thoughts about what my body realities are post-birth soon, but for today I wanted to touch on where this blog is going. Naturally Leah has always followed my life, but with a focus on fitness (and sometimes food – love me a Whole30!). When we got married, I blogged about that; when we travelled for 9 months, I blogged about that; when I fell pregnant, I blogged about that (strangely, you lot are a nosey bunch and my pregnancy posts are some of my most-read!); and now as a mum, I plan to blog about that too.
With a healing body, and very little spare time in the day – my focus on fitness won’t be so strong for the next wee while (in life, and on the blog). Exercise has and always will be an important part of my life, and I plan to share what I AM managing to do (ever heard of Kangatraining? Review coming soon!). But there will mainly be posts about being a new mum, and how my life is changing.
There seems to be some sort of stigma about becoming a “mum blogger” (no idea why?) and I get that these posts will only appeal to a certain percentage of the people who read this blog. That’s ok. I probably wouldn’t have read mum-blog-posts before I knew I was becoming a mum either! But mumlife is where I am at, and it wouldn’t be showing the real me if I ignored it completely and tried to keep my blog focus the same as before.
And because of mumlife, my posts might be few and far between until I manage to snatch some extra time between showering and eating and laundry. My priority is looking after my little bundle of smiles!
Thanks always for following, reading, commenting, liking and interacting with me via this blog. I’m always grateful to have this little slice of the internet!
