Getting Real for a Minute

There have been so many things on my mind lately that I just feel like I need to spill them all out on here.

First, thank you to my friends. I have had several friends reach out to me since I've "gone public" with my blog to people I know. One said she continues to be inspired by my Instagram posts. One said that I was doing such a good job and to keep it up. I don't think they realize how much it means to me, but it truly does. I've always been shy about my blog since I started it earlier this year, just because I didn't want people from my past to have a reason to make fun of me. Come on, I'm the girl who loves talking food, nutrition and fitness but isn't a size 2. I feel like I welcome in the ridicule with that fact alone. But by sucking it up and inviting people to read what I've been doing in my free time has really (sorry for the cliche) set me free. Yes, I blog, tweet and IG all about healthy meals, workouts and my life. Yes I workout. No I'm not a size 2, but I can do a lot more push-ups than I ever thought possible right now. I'm still working towards what I want, and that's okay. More than anything blogging has helped me realize what I really want out of life, and how I love to help people. Somebody contacts me on a Friday night about Beachbody and wanting help with their diet and exercise routines. I am beyond excited to email them back and help jump start their journey with me as their accountability and dedicated coach. I think that the excitement tells it all. 

I've also never been more thankful for Joe. He pushes me everyday to follow through on what I say I'll do--even if it's that 5:30am workout that I do NOT want to roll out of bed for. I texted him last week and said "Thinking of going public with the blog. Are you going to be embarrassed?" His reply was the sweetest. Such a supportive and loving boyfriend that I'm so lucky to have. Especially because he's my taste-tester with recipes that sometimes don't pan out to be as delicious as I thought. 

With that, I hope you have a great week :)

Don't forget about the Turbo Fire special! I'll be starting next month! Want to join?? Email me!



  1. This is so sweet! I've blogged since senior year of college and I think people are STILL just finding out about it. Nothing to be ashamed of! XOXO

  2. I can totally relate to this post on many levels. I, too, passionate about heatlh, fitness, eating clean, etc... But I'm not a size 2 and I'm not 18% body fat. I HAVE been that small and I did it the wrong way, and my body hated me for it. I applaud you for keeping it real.... It's very relatable for me and many others, I'm sure. Keep up the good work!


Thanks for stopping by! Love hearing from you :)
