A Reason for Why I Blog

Like you even need a reason!  I'm entertaining, engaging, and interesting.  (Ummmm.....I hope.)

Honestly, there are tons of reasons why I blog.  But my biggest reason is just to reach out, let people know I'm a normal person, and through candid storytelling relaying of the events in my life, create something that others can relate to. 

Earlier today, I got a notification on SparkPeople that someone had commented on my blog.  (I post a link to this blog over there, that way the peeps there who are interested in my life can still keep up with me.)

This is part of what she said: I am recovering from a running injury too so I really look forward to reading your blogs. It is nice to know that you are not alone.

And you know what?  It IS nice to know you're not alone.  Don't they say that misery loves company?  Well, so does fighting with a purpose, overcoming challenges, and kicking ass.  That's why I share the good, the bad, and the ugly.  Because if I was perfect, I'd be boring...and couldn't call myself Moxie.   

On to some fun things.  Those of you who are my Facebook friends already saw this, but honestly, it isn't too often that I feel really pretty and have that captured in a picture.  And the awesome feeling lasted all day.  So you get to see me again:
I don't know where the feeling came from....maybe because I'm trying to have a more positive outlook, maybe because I'm trying to eat better, maybe just because my hair and makeup looked good....but  I was rolling with the feeling. 

Another fun thing....after Death Gym (I updated my workout page....hope it isn't too confusing) the hubs and I stopped by Redners to return a Redbox movie.  I walked in the door and it smelled so good.  Why?  Because there was a huge display of this:
But as soon as I saw that, I was like YUCK.  For some reason, working out makes me want to not eat junk.  So even though I'm once again not allowed to run, I have to stick with the bike riding and get back into swimming and keep up with the lifting.  Because the eating like crap MUST STOP.

Anyways.  Today was a fantabulous day.


  1. Jennie, I can't seem to see any of the pics you upload. It gives the names as a link, but then the link leads nowhere. Is it just me?

    1. Oh crud. Have you had this problem with all the blogs (plus the "about me" page), or only the last two I posted? I uploaded the pics differently in the last two blogs, so that may have something to do with it.
