I have thought about this for some time and didn’t know when the day would come, but here it is…my first blog post! I will be sharing how health and fitness have changed my life and how I got to where I am today. My plan is start at the beginning and bring you readers up to today. It has been a long journey and far from over, in fact I think it is just getting started.
Over the last two plus year I have started a love affair with health and fitness, though sometimes it is a little bumpy. What relationship isn’t!
But before we go back to the beginning, how about I give you a little bit of information about me now. I live in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota) with my amazing fiance and awesome dog. Baylee is an English Mastiff and the love of my life (yes, she beats my fiance out as number one)! In fact, as I sit here writing this post she is laying across my legs snoring the evening away. I can guarantee you that she will often be the focus of my blog posts sometimes I think her life is more interesting than mine. Okay enough about her, let’s get back to me. ;o) I am a business analyst by trade and love it. I love spending my day creating spreadsheets and process maps! Yep, you will come to find I am somewhat of a geek and I am good with it.
In my free time, I enjoy fitness (and other things but that’s not what the blog is about, right). I started my fitness journey going to the gym and working out there. I slowly found myself spending a lot of time on the treadmill. I started walking and slowly progressed to running and then I fell in love! I spend a lot of weekends at some sort of race. I am trying to cut back but it is a hard habit to break, I am hoping the cold weather will help with it.
I really enjoy running but have recently expanded my horizons to include different types of cross training, my new favorite is strength training. I have been working with weights as well as body weight. I am currently jumping between BodyPump and PiYo.
Well my legs fell asleep, due to the 120 pound dog laying across them so I am going to call it a night. In the next post we will start getting into the details! I can’t wait to share my story with you! I hope you enjoyed my first blog post!
