I know that I say this every week, but I’ve learned so much this week (just like the last two weeks). I always think that I’m not going to come across information that I haven’t heard before, but every week that I blog I am proven wrong.
The first blog that I published this week was called Better Your Workout. This blog was really interesting to write because I didn’t know how much having technology with you when you go to the gym can effect how good you workout. My blog included a negative aspect of having technology with you at the gym and a positive aspect, as well. Technology can distract people, but if used correctly (like listening to a personalized workout playlist) it can also keep people motivated and focused on their workout. I really like posting about different aspects of a workout than just listing a workout that people can do like I had originally planned to do when I was did my Final Project Proposal.
My next blog that I did this week was called Eating Habits For Before and After Workouts. I was super excited that I came across an article about things that people should eat pre-workout and post-workout. I, for one, have always been curious of if I was eating the right things before and after I worked out and I found out that I didn’t. I’m really glad that I wrote this blog because I feel like there are so many people like me out there that have no idea what they are doing when it comes to nutrition. A plus of this blog was that the article that I linked to provided eating habits from an actual nutritionist!
My next blog that I did (which is becoming my favorite blog type of the week) was called Recipe of the Week: Spinach Lasagna Rolls. I love experimenting with new food and having this blog has really pushed me to do it more often since I need content to write about, and a picture of the dish (if I remember). I was skeptic of trying a new recipe since my week two recipe that I tried wasn’t a favorite of mine. I like that this type of blog post is allowing me to try new things while also sharing the recipe and my experience while cooking it with readers because they might not have heard of SkinnyTaste before.
My last blog for the week was called Recognize Your Self-Worth. I found this blog post for this week kind of difficult to write this week. To me, it seems like all of the articles that I am running across have the same kinds of information on it. Since I struggled a little bit this week in writing this, I know that next week I have to prep more and really sift through articles to find good articles. Though I struggled a little more with this blog post, I learned some new things that I didn’t know about body image, like that people could have eating disorders if they keep hating on their body. It’s crazy how much someone’s perspective can affect themselves.
For an overall review of my blog posts, I believe that I chose the right topic to blog about for my final project. Yes, for some of the topics that I want to touch on relating to a healthy life is hard to write about sometimes, but I think that it will better me in the end because I will have to look harder for quality material. I really like writing and learning more information about workout tips, eating tips, recipes, and good mental perspectives when it comes to body image. Writing these blogs are enjoyable because it doesn’t feel like a chore, because I’m learning things that will help me better my life and I think that’s what makes it worth it.
