Unlike many blogs online that have a niche market they actively aim their content at, mine has always been a diary where I’d write a (near) daily record of events and experiences.
You see, I’ve always kept some form of paper diary throughout my life so I guess a blog was something that was always on the cards, especially since I no longer felt the need to lock away my thoughts and feelings and hide them (unsuccessfully) under the bed.
The bonus is that when I’m asked a question eg “When did you start going to Ludus”, I can search the phrase “train like a spartan” which will direct me to the blog post I wrote the very first time I entered the arena, which incidentally was Friday 18th February 2011.
Today I saw a post that suggested;
Write about where your blog was or what you posted 1, 2, or X number of years ago.
Which made me curious, what was I writing about today all those years ago?
*Background – I had Elias (my second child) in June 2009 and I had set a goal to stand onstage in a bodybuilding show before June 2010.*
When I wrote this blog post I was 10 weeks out from show day and I’d lost weight so I was happy. I was such a simple creature back then.
I was sad, my car had broken down on the way to work AND my porridge exploded in the microwave. LOL! I was still writing about bodybuilding and incidentally this blog post included a photo from the show I was preparing for in the earlier mentioned post from 2010 so that was kind of cool.
Thankfully it was all doom and gloom that day, I did note that Ludus had made me happy – some things never change.
I took Yumi to Ludus. Yep! I changed her life forever … 😉
Mostly I spoke about how hot Mr P.T was, oh and how Anna had “forced” me to sign up to the Ludus Games. Which made my cry btw – the actual games that is, not the signing up part. I’m pretty sure the Tough Mudder was Anna’s idea too which also made me cry, right whatever Anna decides I should do next – I’m saying no.
I was in the midst of The Crossfit Open and I was prioritising strength work, so I was lifting increasingly heavy stuff repeatedly. I also incidentally correctly guessed the WOD for 14.5!
Five years later and not much has changed. Mr P.T is still hot, Ludus still makes me (and Yumi) happy and I still lift increasingly heavy stuff repeatedly. Sure I don’t weigh myself nearly as much and I no longer cry about exploding porridge but honestly, more things remain the same than have changed.
If it aint broke ..
Till next time
