It's a Hard Parade

This blog is called "Hard Parade" because that's what this all is, right? A technicolor ride down the Main Street called life that is riddled with hurdles and triumphs. Okay, that was kind of melodramatic but I think I have a point, be it a small one.

After a year of blogging, my first and only year of blogging, I realized that I was trying too hard to be one of "those" bloggers and not trying hard enough to be "me." I felt like I was forcing myself to turn out content, even when I was uninspired, just to keep my blog updated and fresh and the result was boooooring. So, I tweaked my design, my ideas, and my outlook on blogging as a whole and came up with Hard Parade. "It's a hard parade, just be courageous" is from one of my favorite songs by Broken Social Scene, my absolute number one, favorite band. It's a line that comes to my mind pretty often and something that I think is applicable to daily life. You can listen to it here.

I joined Weight Watchers in January (2014) and Hard Parade is going to help keep me accountable on this new journey to a healthier, happier me. I plan on posting healthy (and delicious - duh), PointsPlus friendly recipes as well as indulgent, over-the-top dishes. Throw in a few craft projects and some outfit ideas for putting your best self forward both at home and work, and you've got yourself a blog. 

Come join the parade.
It's a hard parade, just be courageous.
