I’m featured on FitFluential today!
Back in 2011, I applied to become a FitFluential ambassador and haven’t looked back. It’s been such a great experience. I have made awesome friendships and learned a lot about myself and my business. Today they featured me on their Facebook page. Take a peek.
I have grown and stepped out of a major comfort zone with a nice gentle constant nudge from our ‘momma’ and fearless leader Kelly Olexa. I am now doing video on a consistent basis. I was doing it before here and there but now I’m no longer afraid to embrace the challenge of learning all the tech stuff and getting out there and getting a bit more personal. Most of my videos are not edited so what you see is what you get.
For those that don’t know me well, I’m 41, wife to an awesome hubby, Kevin, step mom of two and grandma of a sweet little baby girl. Kev and I live in Chicagoland (Northwest burbs) and have been blogging here at Losing It and Loving It for over 5 years. I have been working from home since June 2001 and in addition to this blog my husband and I have a family travel blog, other niche websites, local clients and I’m also a virtual assistant. Plus I just recently started offering blog brainstorming sessions and am having fun with that. That’s just a little about me!
My Fitness Journey
I’m real thankful for those who keep pushing me year after year. I have come a long way and accomplished things I never imagined (walked a half marathon in Jamaica), lost over 80 lbs and much more. I still have a long way to go but the fact that I have not ever given up makes me confident that I will hit all the goals I set for myself.
You can read a bit about my fitness journey in this older post. I still have some of the same goals like losing 100 lbs and to get back on roller skates one day.
We have a home gym (video tour to come next week) and I love spinning and boxing the most. Now if I could only get my hands on a Nexersys and a rowing machine, the home gym would be complete. Well, until I find the next awesome addition. We don’t have much room left in there though!
