Welcome to For the Health of it

When I decided to start a new blog about food, fitness and health I was keen to involve others. Writing about my own weight loss and fitness journey is fine and finding resources to share is great. But there are many people out there doing the same thing. What. I wondered could I do that was a bit different.

On my NSFW blog I participate in a number of memes every week. Fellow bloggers come up with prompts – words or phrases that others can follow. These might be experience or opinion pieces or short pieces of fiction. And, if this works for people writing about sex and relationships then why not food and fitness.

How does For the Health of it work?

Every month there is a different topic for discussion, asking fellow bloggers to contribute their thoughts, ideas and experiences. I’ll kick off with a blog post to get things going and then you’ll be invited to link up your own blog post. If you don’t have a blog but want to contribute then just leave a comment and we’ll arrange for me to host it here.

Rules

There aren’t many rules. Essentially you need to have written the post yourself. It needs to be loosely based on the current theme – there will be times when we have time to catch up if you missed one.

This is a safe place for everyone. For a start, the very nature of Food and Fitness for Health means this is a body positive place. But also, it is a safe place regardless of gender, sexuality, age and ethnicity. While the blog and the meme are not specifically about sex, I welcome sex and relationship positive writing.

Any images should have been taken by you or be of you. Or else, you should check you have the right to use them and attribute them to the owner. Likewise quotes, these should be referenced to the author.

If you are writing about a sensitive subject please include a trigger warning on your post.

Grab the badge (it’s the same as the one at the top of this post) and then link in the relevant post. It’s as easy as that.

Please read and comment on the other posts linked here and at the end of each month I’ll do a round up and highlight posts here and on Twitter.

    I look forward to this Julie and will certainly be linking up when ever i can. I think it is important for us to discuss health and fitness as well as the joys of food šŸ˜‰ xx

    Thanks May and I completely agree. It felt right to avoid food for a few weeks. Though I get the feeling there is a lot more people would like to say!

  3. I am excited to participate in this meme too!
