New Year, New Blog – The Great Overhaul of 2016

New Year, New Blog - The Great Overhaul of 2016

The time has finallyyy come to show off one of the big announcements that I have been working on for the past 6 months or so. As you can see, things look a little different around here right now, and I mentioned it in my 2015 Recap that change was a’comin!

Although it is quite a bit different, it’s also a lot easier and intuitive to explore. There are two big changes that I made for my new website.

Born to Sweat

The first change is my new blog name // vision // state of mind

Even after I changed my domain to Sweaty & Fit, I knew that deep down I wasn’t 100% satisfied with how it sounded and what it stood for. For the past year I had been racking my brain for something that really represented myself and my values. ‘Born to Sweat’ came up after another evening brainstorm session on the couch, trying to figure out what exactly it was that I was trying to emphasize and re-create.

Born to Sweat is no longer simply a blog, or a place that I come to write my thoughts on my last meal (although that pizza I had last night was GREAT). I want it to become a place that you can come to for inspiration, ideas, and motivation. I want to help you consistently get stronger and confident, while learning to embrace any and all insecurities.

Born to Sweat speaks to me, because I used to be SO incredibly embarrassed at how much I sweat. Seriously! It sounds a little gross, and funny to think of now, but I used to hang out in bathrooms at school until I cooled down enough from walking to class. I slowly became more confident within my body the more that I trained. I learnt how to be stronger mentally, while I got stronger physically. Eventually I started to look at my sweating it in a positive light – it speaks to how fit you are as a person, while doing great things for your skin!

We are here not to sit back and be satisfied, but to want to always achieve more. I truly believe that if you have a body, all your health and fitness goals can be limitless, and I know that Born to Sweat recognizes that potential within us

Website Layout

The second change to my website is the layout, or ‘theme,’ overall.

As I mentioned in my 2015 Recap post, I have started moving away from video workout posts for particular reasons. As such, my old theme did not correspond with my new methods, and I wanted this to be reflected in the overall direction of the website.

While I will continue to share workouts as often as I can, I have found great success in many other posts as well – specifically the ones that talk about daily life in general, accomplishments throughout the year, and challenges that we may face on a day to day basis.

As you can see, my color theme has also changed! Gone are the days of pink4lyfe (although, pink will always be life), replaced with new colors that really represent my brand and blog. The website is much easier to navigate overall, and has a cleaner, crisp look. Truly, I am obsessed.

To wrap this up – I am extremely happy, excited, and looking forward to what Born to Sweat will bring. I hope that you continue with me on my fitness journey, and perhaps even share my new look with your family and friends!

    Hey Beverley! I’m new to the site (thanks for dropping by my blog and saying hello!), but I’m loving your new blog name. Born to Sweat is just super motivating, you know? And I love that you’re committing to the blog being something bigger than it was before. We all need a little motivation and idea-trading to keep fit and healthy. Looking forward for what’s to come on your blog for 2016. So nice to meet you, Beverley! 🙂

      Thanks chicaaaa <3 I'm soo glad that my messsage resonated with you. You are the best!

  12. LOVE IITTTTT. Finally checking this out on my desktop and it looks amazeballs. And we are definitely sweaty twins… I did my senior year human anatomy finals paper on hyperhydrosis because I legit thought I had it. I even told my family doctor and he pretty much just laughed at me. But I totally remember trying to cool off before class! Definitely a pain, and I still to this day won’t buy certain shirts because of my sweaty self. Oh well I guess! Can’t wait til we can meet in person and take a sweaty selfie together 😉

      Hehehe thank you girly! Haha i DEFINITELY thought i had a sweating disease as well. We are hilarious

  13. An overhaul is always necessary every couple of years. In fact, I am toying with the idea myself. My website is just too busy and a bit juvenile if you ask me. That being said, it does fit my personality so it’s difficult for me to figure out what exactly I want. I have sorta already re-done my logo but I haven’t revealed it to anyone, ha!

      Haha thats tough! i find its always good to get tons and tons of feedback from friends (and especially my boyfriend)!
      cant waittt to see the logo

  14. I love the new name and the new look…I actually wish I could sweat more, it’s like no matter how hard I’m working I barely break a sweat. I’m glad you can to embrace it…honestly thats what life is all about embracing what we perceive to be flaws.
