Thank You!

I wanted to say A BIG THANK YOU to all of you out there! When I posted my first blog entry not even 3 weeks ago, I wasn’t sure if anyone would be interested in reading it. And all of a sudden, I’ve got over 1000 views! Thank you very much for your continuous support, thank you for being AWESOME!

Thank you from www.candiesandcrunches.com

Have a great weekend!

Hello World!

Welcome to Candies and Crunches! With the holiday season just around the corner, I thought it would be a great time to begin my own blog. There is so much excitement (and sweets… talk about temptation!) in the air and my mind is buzzing with ideas!

So what do candies have to do with crunches??? Right?!?! Anyone would choose sweets over a set or two of crunches in a heartbeat (unless you’re a health freak, of course)! Let me help you solve the mystery.

I’ve always been very active: I had done rhythmic gymnastics for about 10 years (that’s what upbringing in Ukraine does to you!), then attended spinning classes, aerobics, pilates, yoga, you name it! Therefore, being fit is somewhat embedded in my blood, which could be a blessing or a curse; especially, if you’ve got a sweet tooth like I do (remember, moderation is a key)! That’s how the name of my blog came around. It was a no brainer! Candies and Crunches: where happiness and fitness meet! Welcome to my life!

What should you expect to see on my blog? I’m presently training for the Spartan Trifecta (any other Spartans out there?). Between us girls, I figured if I could do this, I’ll certainly be able to give birth to a baby or two! Haha! But shhhhhhh… It’s going to be our little secret, deal?

Back to the subject… You’ll be able to live with me through some of the challenges that I face, which should be lots of fun, no doubt! But then, I’m obviously a girl! This means that there will be various cooking adventures happening here (trying to please my husband here, hehe!), some DIY projects (don’t we all love pretty things?), and many other exciting bits and pieces of my life. I am thrilled about this journey, and I am hoping that you are too!
