Being that I have been blogging for almost a month (does NOT feel like it!), I guess I should tell you why and how I came up with my blog name!
During the past few years, I have become much more active. I wasn’t always one to enjoy doing things, and you would find me hiding from the gym and walking instead of running. That all changed during my freshman year of college (more on that later). Since then, I have loved all things active. I would prefer being outside doing something over just about anything. I love going on our boat in the summer, running in the mornings when it’s crisp and cool outside, and riding my bike at night.
I took all these things into consideration when coming up with a name. I was originally trying to come up with something to do with running, but I don’t only run. I lift, I use the elliptical, I do water sports, I consider myself fit. I’d say that fit describes me because it doesn’t mean I’m perfect, but I like to stay moving with exercise, and I knew my blog would have a lot of fitness related topics being that is something I am passionate about.
I toyed around with many other ideas for what to pair with it. Baking is one of my favorite hobbies, and I love trying new recipes. I then thought deeper (because I didn’t want Fit ‘n Bake haha) to come up with something that really grabbed me. I started pairing other possibilities and baked goods with Fit and thought about what would work. There were a lot of possibilities, and Aaron had the pleasure of heading them all! (Gosh he’s good to me!) As soon as I thought of one, I immediately called him to see his reaction.
When I thought about it, cookies are my absolute favorite; chocolate chip cookies to be exact. To sum it up, I am the cookie monster. I will always indulge in at least one cookie (unless they have peanut butter, which I don’t like). . When I began to think of Fit ‘n’ Cookies, I thought it captured two things that my blog would be about: fitness and baking (recipes). I also thought that when you said it, it kind of sounded like I’m fittin’ in cookies, which is pretty much my daily life. How can I fit in this cookie to my meals? Where can my next cookie come from? I tried the idea on a few people, and they liked it and thought it fit me!
Oh, just one random instance of my cookie baking.
So, there you go! How my blog became Fit ‘n’ Cookies! Maybe now it will make a little more sense to you
Enjoy your night!
