One year ago I decided to start Skinny Mom’s Kitchen – it has been quite a ride since then!
When I finally made that leap into the blogosphere I wasn’t entirely sure what I was doing. The only thing I knew for sure is that I wanted to reach out to other busy moms and share the tips and knowledge I have learned about successfully losing weight. I wanted my experience to provide inspiration and hope to the many moms out there that it is possible to find balance between a busy life and a healthy life.
Well I feel like I have done that and much more. In my effort to provide you with recipes and information I have also grown leaps and bounds as a home cook, wife, mother, and career woman.
Skinny Mom’s Kitchen has kept me focused on my own weight loss goals and the overall health of my family. It is very easy, as you all know, to fall back into old bad habits when life gets busy. I still find myself there at times.
However, by consistently researching and writing every week for this blog I have been held accountable – and that has changed my world!
I have also been overjoyed by the people I have met through the Skinny Mom’s Kitchen facebook community which sprouted as a result of this blog. Currently, there is just under 7000 facebook members!
I know that number is small fries to some power bloggers but to little ole me that is amazing. I continue to learn so much from the women (and some men) that make up this community – I hope you do as well.
Numerous ideas spin in my head daily for growing this blog. My goal is always to make Skinny Mom’ Kitchen a supportive place we can all come together to learn from one another as we try to create healthy meals and habits in the midst of busy parenthood. Over the year I have asked for your suggestions on ways to continue this and please know that I listen to all of you and try my hardest to incorporate them as best and as fast as I can.
With all of that said I just want to say thank you for continuing to make your way over to my little corner of the blogosphere. I know there are millions of blogs out there and I deeply appreciate that you come here week after week to learn along with me.
As a thank you I want to host a giveaway to show my appreciation. I thought long and hard about what to giveaway. There are so many things that I think you would love but I know everyone has different needs.
Therefore, for my 1 year blogoversary I decided to giveaway a $50 Amazon gift card – that way you can pick out exactly what you need!
If you need help deciding what to spend it on allow me to make a few suggestions of my favorite items. All of these items I love and use on a regular basis. These of course are just suggestions – you can buy $50 work of licorice if you want. I promise I won’t judge 😉
