Well howdy folks, thanks for visiting my page! I’m just a regular gal doing the 9-5 thing (although I wouldn’t label me as “normal” by any stretch of the imagination). I tend to be very passionate about subjects I care about, and want to share workouts and ideas that make a healthy lifestyle fun and easily attainable.
Enter fitness. A journey that changes and is shaped by our lives.
Growing up, I was fortunate to have a very active family. I played all types of sports even though I wasn’t particularly good at any of them, my family was pretty healthy, ran marathons, and worked out consistently which set a good example for my siblings and I. When I went off on my own to college, I started off exercising pretty consistently but as the years went by and life happened my attention to my health and wellness dwindled to an all time low. As I worked to overcome an eating disorder, negativity had overshadowed my life.
Then I made a choice. I decided to change.
Through an internship in the last 2 summers of college, I applied the principles of sales training to shift my paradigm and begin to use positivity. I bought in, and with regained confidence began to work towards my goals with fervor, without abandon. I realized that I can’t control everything, but my attitude is my choice. Decide to be effing happy. I am grateful. I appreciate this gift of life and the body I have that is able to go outside and run and I have the freedom to choose where I workout and what I do. I do strength & conditioning, martial arts, explore the outdoors. I run, I do yoga…I hike, swim, play sports. And still, I’m not particularly good at any of them. But so what?
Hopefully my passion towards this is infectious and that I can share the happiness it brings me.
