First Draft of “The Elliptical Chronicles Decoded”:
Me – Erin, 26 years old, big-time lover of exercise (cardio, especially)
Boyfriend – My husband and I married at the end of September 2011. Not sure how this happened, but our terms of endearment for each other took on more of a practical nature and became “Boyfriend” and “Girlfriend.” It’s weird, but I definitely prefer it to the likes of “honey,” “baby,” and “sweetie,” so it stuck. Therefore, throughout this blog, I refer to my husband as “Boyfriend” or “B.”
Locale – We just moved to Harrisburg, PA in January 2013 because of B’s work. It’s meant to be a temporary move, so we should be here through about April, at which point we both plan to take off for about a year to travel throughout Europe and South America. It’s been a huge goal of ours for a long time, and the stars seem to be aligning, so we’re going to take the opportunity when it comes at the end of B’s current contracting project in Harrisburg around April of this year…
Back Story – I’m from the Cincinnati, OH area and that is where a good portion of both B’s and my family and friends remain. I graduated from Ohio State in 2008 (majored in Spanish and sociology, and NO I’m not a football fan and/or lover of THE BUCKEYES. If they win a game in whichever sport, great, if not, I feel just about the same as if they had won. Ain’t no thang.) and lived in Columbus, OH for a couple years after graduating. We moved to Northern KY (pretty much Cincinnati – just across the river) when we were planning our wedding
and lived there from about August 2010 until January 2013 when we moved to Harrisburg. I’ve been reading healthy living blogs for a long while and contemplating starting my own for about a year. It’s been a long work in progress, and I’ve undergone a career change (leaving my job in the admin field and recently pursuing yoga teacher training) as well as a few moves (living in Northern KY, living temporarily in various cities througout India for B’s job over the summer of 2012, and now living in Harrisburg, PA).
I’m now hoping to be able to keep this blog going as a way to share my experiences and endeavors (both exercise/nutrition-relatied and otherwise) and also as a way to connect with the healthy living blog community.
Thanks for visiting and hope you enjoy!
