AML’s Six Month Blogiversary! flies, huh? When I was hunting for a blog idea for today it hit me. I’ve been blogging here for six whole months already! I can’t believe it’s been so long! And for the most part, I’ve been pretty regular with posting three days a week.

First off, I want to thank the people who encouraged me to start this writing here. The Hubs, my cousin Susan, and my good friend from SparkPeople R (who inspired the name “A Measured Life”). All of you knew that once I took the first step to start, I’d follow through. The first step is always the hardest, right? I was terrified. Would anyone read? Does anyone give a crap what I have to say? Turns out they knew something I didn’t! Sure, lots of people read my far more personal blog on SparkPeople, but A Measured Life is less about me and more about healthy living, and there are a lot of blogs out there like mine. But I’m getting likes and readers and comments and requests for specific topics (notably, MORE BINGLEY) so I guess I’m doing A-OK!

Here’s a quick recap of my first half-year:


I started January off by hitting hard, beginning my series of How To Lose 100 Lbs Without Losing Your Mind or Breaking the Bank.


In February I had my first guest post about running by my friend Christina S.!

Who doesn't love getting their butt kicked by a ball of iron?

In March I told you all about my love of kettlebells.


April brought you AML swag from Cafe Press and had me learning to enjoy running.


May was all about frugality with the introduction of Frugal May Days!


June helped me design my own Intermediate Kettlebell Workout!


I’m looking forward to the next six months of blogging here. Please, let me know in the comments if there are any topics you’d like me to cover!

  1. I had a similar epiphany when I got my domain name renewal notice for one of mine. Can it really be almost a year old already? Really? It seems crazy. I’ve never managed to keep interest in a blog for more than a month before. Does this mean I’m becoming focused? Well-rounded?
    In my case, I think it mostly means that I’ve found a forum for spewing out whatever random nonsense is on my mind, really, but you’re much less ADD than I am. 🙂

    Keep ’em coming. Your blog might, one of these days, guilt me back onto good behavior. I’ve been far too lazy lately.

  2. Congratulations! I have to tell you, I DO get a little bit happy when I see A Measured Life in my mailbox! I really do look forward to it!! I’ve liked how you’ve focused on something each month. I really enjoy your recipes and photos of healthy things. I’d enjoy a month of that!!

  3. Happy 6th month-iversary! The people that encouraged you were so right, and know you so well, because if you start something, you DO follow through. {Hmmm… I know someone who could learn a thing or two from you! 😉 } Looking forward to the next 6 months!
