nope it is another day to get stuff done!
Also we thought we would answer a fun question we received from a reader from a few days ago.
Does blogging keep us motivated and on track with being healthy?
Such a great question! More on that below.
Besides cereal, we enjoyed lots of other yummy eats over the weekend.
Enjoyed plantain donuts (we did 2 duck eggs instead of arrowroot). Perfect pillows of heaven! We topped our donuts off with homemade goat kefir, banana, and cardamom. We are starting to make our own kefir again from raw goat milks that we get from a farmer. LOVE IT! We sure have missed it.
Enjoyed some flounder we picked up at the farmers market. So good! A very nice change to our regular mahi and salmon.
still enjoying mint chocolate chip avocado soft serve
We cannot even describe how good this meal was so many of our favorites together in one bowl – local eggs, with runny yolk, plantains, coconut oil, local sausage, and lots of plantain socca! We were hungry
Enjoyed simple meals like this – perfect fit protein with banana and coconut oil. You guys have seen this many times before.
Simple breakfast – green juice, blueberries, banana, perfect fit protein, and coconut oil.
Love the colors of our dinner last night – grass-fed beef burger, 1/2 avocado, cooked local swiss chard with fermented veggies, plantain and coconut oil!
Just a few highlights of some of our meals these past few days.
Now back to Morgan’s question.
How has blogging motivated our health journey? Blogging has helped us in so many ways – personally.
One – it keeps us accountable. Which we know several other bloggers would agree.
Two – by sharing our eats and workouts allows us to see our health journey unfold. Allows us to look back and learn from our past. Allows us to grow and push harder.
Three – it allows us to share our health issues to be able to connect with others who might be going through the same thing. To know that we are not alone and that we are not perfect. We are human. We have our issues. We do our research. We do our own self experiments. And we wait for results.
Would we be as consistent with our healthy choices if we did not keep up the blog?
Yes. We have always been interested in health and fitness our whole life…dating all the way back to middle school. So we would still be reading, learning, researching, and trying new things whether or not we had a blog.
Do we ever feel blogging takes up too much time?
Yes it can. Honestly we still love blogging, even though it takes us a lot of time to write up post, edit pictures, film and edit videos, think of content to write about, test recipes, etc. But it is worth it as we have a true passion for health, fitness and recipe making. So we never look at it as “oh my gosh this is taking forever;” okay well we hate waiting for videos to upload. Those do take forever.
We love our blogging community. We love that we can share whatever we want. We love that we can connect with people all over the world. We love trying new things. We love being able to share what we love with others. And especially we love hearing from our readers that means the world to us!
Seeing our purely twins community come together – inspiring, sharing, and motivating one another – is so motivating and inspiring for us!
We love you all!
Twins Question: To other bloggers — do you feel your blog keeps you accountable? do you feel you would make healthy choices even if you did not blog? To non-bloggers — Do you feel you would make healthy choices if you did not read blogs?
