February Challenge – Pure Barre and #NaNoWriMo

Hi guys! I’ve given myself a different physical challenge and blog-related challenge per month for 2015. For January, I spent 910 minutes exercising (goal was 900) and I, well, I failed my blog goal which was to do all sorts of boring background stuff like moving hosts and closing down MTOD for good, but I have an appointment scheduled for next Sunday to do just that, so all is not lost.

My February challenges are to visit the new Pure Barre location at least 10 times and to try a new way of blogging. I’m taking a break from writing to enjoy my very own #NaNoWriMo where I’ll let the photos do the talking for me.

For the rest of the month I am only going to give you pictures. I don’t think it will necessarily be a one-a-day kind of deal, but I want to capture all the fun, thrilling, mundane and real life things that happen, just like what I normally write about.

Here are my first three shots using an app called Tadaa. This app is amazaballs. Makes my pictures look better than what I can do with Photoshop, but then again that might just be because they are doing the work for me.

Maggie, do something with this... Doing!

This may turn into more posts or, more probably, will mean I just do a once a week post with the pictures. My apologies in advance of your Tuesday and Thursday nights just don’t feel the same without a rambling note from me.

I’d love your feedback in the comments about this way of blogging. As I work on my photography skills and play with editing apps, I’m taking more pictures, but perhaps 1,000 words from me is more valuable?? Maybe I’m going to need to write to clear my head?! This is going to be an interesting challenge for all of us!

P.S. My other challenge, the trips to Pure Barre?! I’ve only gone once so far but already I feel like a ballerina. That is if ballerinas feel like their sore hamstrings are going to fall right off their bones. So difficult! So what I need!!
