New Stuff on SSE

If you stopped by my site today, you probably noticed a couple new things.

Sweat Stretch Eat Newsletter

I've added a newsletter sign-up to the top of my sidebar. If you want updates on the blog sent to your email, sign up there.

And you're probably wondering-- what's up with the deer logo?

So, I've been thinking about this blog a lot lately -- what I enjoy writing about, where I see this blog going, what are some characteristics that I want to be true for Sweat Stretch Eat, etc.

What characteristics do I want the SSE girl to have? I want her to be:

  • Kind
  • Gentle
  • Athletic
  • Healthy
  • Nimble
  • Loving
  • Graceful
  • Intelligent
  • Long-lived
  • Medetative
  • Meek
  • Pure in purpose
  • Sensitive
  • Swift

As I was listing these characteristics, the first thing that popped into my head was a sweet doe (female deer-- you know, like the Sound of Music song). The doe is strong, fast, and athletic, but she doesn't use those skills for anything vain. She walks in the light with intelligence and pure purpose.

I want Sweat Stretch Eat to be a good blend of physical activity, positive mindedness, Christianity, and healthy living, and I think the doe is a perfect symbol for that.

** Keep in mind, all of my blog is DIY. This is the 1.0 version of the new logo. Hopefully there will be more updates coming!

Let me know what you guys think!
