Today is day 25 of the August Healthy Living / Fitness Blogger Writing Challenge, and our topic is:
What’s the meaning behind your blog name?
As I’ve written before, I started this blog as a way to motivate myself to be more active. The original name was Lazy Mama FItness, in fact, I still own the domain name: lazymama.com. After a month of blogging, I realized that the blog name, and domain name sucked and weren’t the least bit inspiring, and didn’t reflect the kind of posts I was writing. I thought long and hard about how I was going to re-brand myself:
- Who did I want to be?
- What name could I give myself and my blog to truly reflect my goals?
- What name would I be PROUD of?
Another thing I considered was my overall perspective on healthy living – While getting to, and maintaining an ideal weight is somewhat important, I wanted to reflect my belief that being active and eating healthy is MORE important than reaching an aesthetic ideal. I wanted to promote long-term health and quality of life to both myself and to the small audience of on-line friends I had developed, and so the FITNESS CHEERLEADER was born.
I lead by example, I cheer myself and you on, I’m a cheerleader of fitness.
