Happy 1st Anniversary!!!



Happy 1st Anniversary Ingredients Of A Fit Chick!!!

It’s party day!!! Ingredients Of A Fit Chick has hit the one year mark! I honestly can’t even believe it has already been a year! It feels like just a few months ago I started sharing recipes with you all! It’s crazy how quickly time flies by….when you’re having TONS of fun! :) I don’t even know where to begin in thanking you all for your amazing love and support of this site! Ingredients Of A Fit Chick has grown into something much larger than I ever could have expected! Whether you are a new reader or have been around since the beginning, I appreciate every one of you!

I was doing some updating of posts the other day because many pictures were missing after the facelift of this site. (Do you remember the old look?!) It cracks me up to see some of the horrible pictures that I have on here! haha The pictures in the first 4-5 months of the blog were taken with my iphone! I remember thinking to myself, “Well, these aren’t great but they’re not too shabby either.” Boy, was I wrong! haha (Looks like I need to spend some time remaking and re-photographing some recipes in the upcoming weeks!) And can you believe that I didn’t have a twitter, instagram or pinterest account when I started? I had NO CLUE how to use them! Two beautiful ladies, Missy and Deb, who both are readers of the site, taught me how to use them! I couldn’t believe that two strangers would care enough to teach me how to use these!! I can’t thank them enough for that! It definitely changed the world of Ingredients Of A Fit Chick!

Not only has this site taught me how to use technology (haha) and that I need to learn how to take better pictures ;) but it has taught me a lot about myself! YOU have taught me a lot about myself! From reading your comments, following others blogs, seeing inspirational quotes on IG or reading stories of struggle, each moment has made me take a step back and look deeper into myself. For that, I can’t thank you enough! I have made so many amazing friendships and ‘blends’ that I can’t even begin to list all of the names! Even those of you who don’t have blogs, many of us have emailed back and forth sharing recipes, favorite foods, stories of running, etc. It truly is amazing what the world of technology can do to bring together people who are otherwise so far apart!

I also owe a huge thank you to my boyfriend for his undying support of this site! Not only is he my taste tester (you have no idea how many recipes you haven’t seen because he could barely choke them down ;) ), but he has also been my cheerleader for the tremendous growth over the months! He has listened to me vent about a recipe going wrong 5 times or dealt with me hanging up the phone on him because “my muffins are done and I can’t burn them….they need to be photographed!” haha

I think I could honestly go on for hours thanking each of you for your love! But, I know you are all ready to move past the sappy stuff and find out what the excitement is, so……….
