I planned for a long time what my blog would look like, what it would be about, topics I'd include and areas that I would address. I thought that was the hard part, that once I had those down, I could just start writing and everything would just fall into place... WRONG! The absolute hardest part is this first blog post. Where do I start? Do I just jump in on a topic? Do I introduce myself? Am I supposed to sugar coat my thoughts or just be blatantly me?
It's a little like being on a blind date..
So let's run with that and pretend we're meeting at a coffee shop.. actually, let's pretend we're at a bar. Blind dates are always better with a little liquid courage. I'll tell you a little about myself, (and feel free to tell me a little about you in the comment section) and we'll move on from there. Here I go:
My name is Nicole and I live in the suburbs of Chicago with my husband, 2 kids, and 2 dogs. I love working out. And when I say "love" I seriously mean it. I would spend 5 hours a day working out if I could, I might pass out of the floor in a sweat induced coma at the end.. but it would be a happy coma. Fitness and health is a lifestyle and I embrace it with open arms, but I also believe in balance. I bake cookies, I drink wine, I don't hesitate to go to parties and restaurants, and I almost ALWAYS order desert.
Caffeine & Cardio is my dream. It's where I can be me and where I can (hopefully) help others to become the best version of themselves. I want you to be my friend, my confidant, my support system and I want to be yours. And I hope you continue to follow along and join me.
