to come: fitness & health

long time no blog-

I honestly have no real explanation for this, other thank the fact that I am super lazy when it comes to blogging.. oops. This is a new chapter in my life. 

I want to continue blogging (even if no one reads this (if you do, say "hi," it means a ton!), but I don't want to write about things that bore me. So for the next little while, this blog will be taking a different direction. I have recently (like in the past few weeks), begun running & other forms of exercise. I want to share my workouts with you, along with healthy recipes or other things that are health & fitness related. 

Ok, confession time: I used to hate running/exercising. I can count on one hand the amount of times I have willingly done anything of the sort before now. I thought running was boring, stupid, and ineffective. Boy was I wrong. 

When I was younger I danced and played soccer, but since then, I've done close to nothing outside of mandatory P.E. classes. Both this year and last year I've played badminton, which while it isn't physical itself, we run & do other toning exercises during practice. So I had some, but not enough, physical movement in my everyday life.

I'll talk about my running and everything else later on, but for now I just wanted to share some of my background with you, and let you know that there is more to come. 

xoxo, Giada

february playlist

 Ah, February. The month of love and leap-years. When a groundhog gets to be a weatherman. And, the month I listened to some of my old favorites. I tend to adore songs and listen to them a billion times in a very short period of time, and I soon get over them. So, I have a ton of old songs on my iPod I haven't heard in years.

welcome to love from narnia

for the longest time, I have tried, failed, tried, failed, and tried again to blog consistently. All of those blogs were unsuccessful, and honestly, embarrassing. I am now challenging myself to blog as often as I can, but post things I actually like. follow me on my new journey, if you're interested....

behind the title:
I first saw The Chronicles of Narnia when I was seven years old. the story captivated me, and I soon read all of the books. Narnia has always seemed like such a magical place to me, and I've always wanted to find myself a Narnia.

who I am:
I live in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. I love to take pictures of everything, which I do with my Nikon Coolpix p520. my favorite subject in school has always been history, and I hope to one day major in either anthropology or archaeology. my birthday is New Years' Day and I love the colors green and gold (although never together).

please join me in this new blogging experience, and let me know what kind of posts you'd like to see, as well as any tips/ideas for blogging and writing.
