Well, here it is, the first official blog post of Life in Spandex. Welcome! I have taken days thinking about the best way to introduce myself, my transition from corporate marketing to health and fitness, and my vision for this blog. Then it hit me, this blog (and my recent decision to leave corporate marketing and pursue my dream) is a rebellion against perfection, counting, and meticulous practices that have left us as women feeling insecure, incompetent, and invaluable. Well screw it! This first blog post will be just as imperfect as me.
So here I am, introducing myself in the raw, free of judgement and fear, it is so nice to meet you all! You may have come to my site because you are unhappy with your body and want to change it, you want to find health and happiness, you want to start a new fitness routine, you’re interested in finding new healthy recipes, or a combination of these. Then some of you may be here as support for me as I begin my dream of being a voice in the health and fitness industry – thanks mom, dad, Robby, and Alex for reading!
If you are looking to improve your physique and feel more confident, great! If you are interested in finding new ways to enjoy healthy food, perfect! If you want to follow along with my journey into fitness and also to self-love and fulfillment, yay! All of your reasons for reading will be applicable to this blog. I want to make sure I answer all of your questions about health, fitness, love, family, happiness, and body image. No question is too personal, so please reach out to me in the comments sections below the blog posts if you want answers about something I have not covered in recent posts.
