30 Day Blogging Challenge!!

I am the queen of starting blog posts and never actually finishing them.  I was cleaning some things up on my website this week and realized that I have a ton of blog posts that I’ve started and never finished!  The crazy part is that they are almost completely done, I just had a few final touches left, and then it kept getting pushed further and further down my to-do list, then so much time went by that I just never posted them.  SO, I decided to give myself a challenge for the month of September.  I am going to do a 30-Day Blogging Challenge where I do one blog post every single day!  Crazy, right?

I have a few vlogs that are ready to post and not everything will necessarily be fitness related.  Some things might be about mommy/kids stuff, some things might be about nutrition/meals, some things might be about family, etc.  I want to write about things that I get commonly asked like training/supplements while breastfeeding, I want to write about my experience at the Mr. Olympia event I will be at the end of the month, I want to share with you some post-partum body thoughts I have had, tips for getting kids to eat healthy, making your own baby food, and I want to share with you some ideas I have for my 3-year old’s 4th birthday at the end of the month.  I may throw a few guest blogs in here, so if you are interested in doing a guest post leave a comment below!  Who knows, things might be really random, but I hope you enjoy it!

Your Friend,

  • Ok! I will email you guys with the email address you used to comment 🙂

  • I LOVE this idea… After months of procrastinating on starting my own fitness/health blog I finally launched it about a week ago. So far I’ve posted four articles in that time which I’m really pumped about. However I can definitely see myself going down the road of drafts in the future like you mention. Starting them and then not putting those finishing touches on to post!! 🙂 I will keep this challenge in mind in the future and may use it to motivate myself when the time comes. Love your blog. Would love to collaborate on one someday! 🙂

  • HI Natalie! I wanted to thank you for inspiring me to weight lift again. I love how candid and honest you are! Before I get back in the gym and start lifting again, I had a question for you. I’m training for a trail half marathon in November. I run between 25-30 miles a week, would that be too much to start weight lifting? Do you have any suggestions or ideas? I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks! :^)

  • Hi Natalie,
    I just love you site and you story. Your a inspiring me to love my post pregnancy body while I’m getting back into shape. My little man is 2 months old and I too am breastfeeding, so I am trying to take it slow with the weight loss because I don’t want to jeopardize my milk supply. I have been trying to follow the clean eating plan a long with any type of exercise I can fit in between my two year old and my two month old.
    I love all the different food you get from trader joes( and believe it or not I have never been there) and I was thinking you should do a blog day on what healthy foods you like to purchase from trader Joe’s and also costco.
    Thanks for sharing you journey and you look amazing 🙂

  • Natalie,

    Your posts are always awesome on so many levels! I love the content first and foremost. I’m also inspired that you are able to blog once daily for 30 days! IMPRESSIVE!! I blog myself. My goal is once per week and that doesn’t always happen. Kudos to you!! Thanks for helping moms everywhere. 🙂


  • Thanks Jill! I haven’t been as great with the challenge this week and posts have been a little more spread out. Oh well! It was a fun challenge but definitely not something I could keep up long term 🙂 It helped that I had a whole bunch of half-written posts that I just had to finish too.

  • After looking into a few of the articles on your site, I really like your
    way of writing a blog. I saved as a favorite it to my
    bookmark website list and will be checking back in the near future.
    Please check out my web site too and tell me what you think.

Ten years ago I started out in the online world in the fitness space. I started blogging, sharing at-home exercises, and offering easy recipes. This turned into writing eBooks — one of which blew up in a way I could never imagine!
