I first started this blog as an online journal/diary to keep track of my life and vent my thoughts. Over time, it gradually evolved into more of a fitness blog, although that was never my intention. Health and fitness is such a huge part of my life that it just ended up that way!
I really don't consider this a "fitness blog", as I also frequently share photos and thoughts about my life, inspirational quotes, bible verses and just random things every now and then, and I will continue to do so!
This blog is an outlet for me, a place to vent my thoughts and feelings, and to share my love for health and fitness, especially lifting! So if you want a blog that's always about fitness and healthy recipes and "booty shaping" workouts-this is not the place for you! ;)
Other facts about me: I'm 32 years old. I have a degree in Exercise Science and currently work as a personal trainer. I have been very happily married for 11 years to the most amazing man! He is an answered prayer and my very best friend! :)
I don't plan on having kids anytime soon, but we treat our 130 lb white German Shepherd, Asher, like a child. He's our baby!
Here is some background on how my love for fitness began:
I started weight training when I was around 13 years old. My dad wanted me to strengthen my arm because I was a softball pitcher, so he showed me some exercises to do with my mom's set of little 3lb pink dumbbells. And I have been hooked ever since! I instantly fell in love with lifting weights.
As I got stronger, my dad gave me heavier dumbbells to use. I would go through a full body routine with those weights in my bedroom all through middle school and high school. After a while of doing this, I started seeing the physical changes. I was growing some muscle on my skinny body, and I loved it! I remember being so proud of my little biceps!
Now, 15 years later, I am just as in love with lifting weights as ever. Well, that's not really true-I love it even MORE. My love for fitness led me to get a degree in exercise science from the University of Louisville, and I have been a personal trainer for almost 5 years now. Health and fitness is truly my passion.
