Mommy, Where Do Blog Names Come From?

As I was touring my Google reader last night, I was struck by the…unusual nature of some blog names, especially among my fitness buddies. Some names are staightforward, some aren’t. It got me to wondering how you all came up with your blog names or why you chose the ones you did.

For myself, if you’ve been here any length of time, you know that my approach to fitness is a gradual one. I’ve made small changes over time that have brought me to where I am now, and there will be more changes in the future. One day, pre-blog, when I was explaining this concept to a co-worker, and trying to emphasize the need for patience, she interrupted me to ask, “Yes, but what diet are you on?” I took a deep breath and said, “It’s the Tippy Toe Diet. You sneak up on it.”

She never did get it, but it was a lightbulb moment for me. :)

Later I extended the analogy to include an image of myself standing on my tippy-toes reaching for the stars. It works for me either way.

But enough about me! How did you choose your blog name?

Personal note: Thanks for all the kind comments and well wishes on my bling day!
