For the past year, I have been training for the marathon I ran. Every week I knew what you could expect because that became my life, but really there’s so much more. I feel like I have fallen away from what I originally expected with this blog and it’s time to get back on the wagon. So what can you expect now the training is done?
Training & Health
Look, I don’t think I am an expert in the category of training and health, but I have worked with a lot of professionals along the way and want to share what they have shared with me. This past year I am going to keep running, but I want to incorporate weight training. I am not going to stick to a specific workout plan right now, but I know I’ll find something and will share that with you.
When I write about health you can expect things like what I am eating and recipes to make these healthy things yourself. Also, I have a lot of healthy habits that I want to share with you. This is where those will come into play. But I also want to share my health journey with you.
During the past year I have gotten tests to see what is happening on the inside. This section I will continue to share with you what is happening there. These posts could get personal, but they will be super informative with what I am doing and how it’s actually changing my life—internally.
From the beginning, I started this because I was working at a baby store where people always asked my opinion about what products are the best and why they need them. They loved that they were getting a male perspective so that their husband could get more on board for getting it. This is coming back, but adding some parts.
Baby and toddler products are what I am drowning in. I have a four-year-old boy and two-year-old girl and four-month-old boy. This gives a good assortment of products that we are in love with. Some products that we got for the first, we might not recommend now with our third. But other things we recommend no matter how many kids you have. I want to bring this aspect back and hope it’s something you enjoy.
Fashion & Style
I love shopping, but I really love shopping for my wife. I love sharing where to get great looks and items for great prices. When it comes to price I have certain things I feel you need to spend money on, but more things are replaceable and getting them at a great price is always nice. These are the things I want to share with you. Where to find amazing looks, accessories, and other items for great prices.
Now for me, you know I love running. I want to share with you my favorite running items still. I might incorporate those into my health and fitness section, but I am going to keep sharing my favorites. Really though, I love clothes. You are going to hear what you need to be wearing as a stylish dad. Lets drop the idea that dads aren’t stylish and show off our nice looking dad bod.
My family is my most important thing. You will hear what is going on in our family in this section. Talking about our recent trip, what activity we do to keep our kids off technology, or fun free things to do in town with your family. Whatever it is, family is going to be talked about.
DIY & Home Repair
Recently, we bought a house. When you buy a house there comes some remodeling to make it your home. Well, if you know me you know that I am not great at building anything. I want to be able to show you that if I can do it, so can you.
We have plenty of projects and I will be sharing those projects here for you. Ideas we have are to finish the basement with a bathroom, laundry room, and bedroom. Also, we have lights outside, but they’re not working. I want to find out how to get them to work and will do it myself. Am I nervous? Totally! But I know that I will be able to do it and learn a lot from it.
Finally, we all have our own views and here I am going to share mine. Controversial topics will be featured here and it’s going to be 100% my view. If you like it or if you hate it, that’s fine, but know that these are going to be my own thoughts. I have posted controversial topics before and I listen to what people say, but I listen when you don’t yell. This is a time for conversation and if you go off the handle, I will respond.
There you have it. I hope you are as excited as I am about this new change for what The Modern Dad is working on. Working on a couple other things right now, but they’re not far enough in the works. But I will let you know as soon as it’s ready. Just know, you’re going to love it all.
