As a new blogger, I thought it would be great to write this post, so my readers can get to know me! My goal is to write posts like this on a regular basis, at least in the beginning. One thing I have enjoyed about reading other people’s blogs, is when seem genuine and let people in on their lives.
Here are five things I’m sharing with you this Friday:
I love quotes and I’m pretty much obsessed with reading them and finding new ones. I find them to be a great source of inspiration, for anything really. Reading quotes can make you feel empowered and can make you feel better when you’ve been having a crummy day. I have been reading quotes since college, always keeping a list of my favorites. I have been pinning to my ‘Thoughts’ Pinboard on Pinterest. You can go there to see some of my favorites.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology (the study of human movement). Clearly, at 18 years old, when I picked my major, exercise was most interesting to me (still is). I studied Kinesiology with a concentration in Exercise Science. Initially, I thought I would go to school for Physical Therapy, but ended up changing my mind upon graduation. I did use my degree to work as a personal trainer for a few years after undergrad, and still to this day, I really would like to get back into training part time!
I have hiked 31 of the 48 4,000+ foot mountains in New Hampshire. Our goal is to hike all 48 peaks and we are so close! All of these hikes have been done with my husband Todd, and our West Highland White Terrier, Oliver. There is just something about being in the mountains, particularly the White Mountains. While atop high peaks, there is no facebook, no cell phone service (most of the time), no one interrupting what you are doing… it’s just you, the person (or furball) you are hiking with, the magnificent views and the fresh air. There is nothing.like.it.
I am an athlete, but I’m also a ‘girly-girl.’ I really love fashion and shopping for new (athletic and non-athletic clothing). I spend so much of my free time sweating in workout clothes, that I love to dress up and wear cute outfits on the weekends. Speaking of sweaty workout clothes, I worked at lululemon athletica for over 2 years. I love to coordinate outfits with accessories.. whether that’s working out or not.
I am a Scorpio and I’m proud of it. The great strength of the Scorpio-born is in their determination, passion and motivation. Scorpios don’t know the word quit, which is why they usually get the job done. A powerhouse? Like no other. Yup, that’s me.
