A little bit about myself:
Hi everyone! I'm Nicole Marie :) Welcome to my blog! I'm a 20something law student who enjoys physical activity, eating well, and being the best I can be. I was a competitive gymnast for 13 years so naturally I'm into being strong, active, and determined. I absolutely LOVED gymnastics but at 16 I was convinced by my father to stop training (guess that olympic dream wasn't going to play out--hah) and start getting involved in extracurricular activities at my high school. I retired from the gym and became a cheerleader and track runner. That helped me maintain a healthy size/physical ability while in high school but, after graduation, everything changed. I went to college and stopped working out at all. Of course this lead to a bit of weight gain. I found myself getting bigger, losing my hard-earned muscle that I loved, generally not feeling like myself. After three years I decided enough was enough, you know? So I started getting my butt back to the gym and watching what I was eating. Then I discovered something I wasn't anticipating...I LOVE running! I became obsessed with fitbloggers and found amazing sites like bodyrock.tv and Zuzana Light. It was so easy to get (and stay) motivated and now I'm still going strong (pun totally intended!).
This blog is my little slice of the internet where I choose to track my life in front of anyone sitting at a computer screen who cares to join in. It's not limited to fitness though. It's a record of memories, thoughts, rants, and all the twists and turns and ups and downs life can throw at me. Posts include fitness progress, delicious meals, tough exercises/grueling workouts, and whatever else I feel like throwing in there. After all, you can't categorize "life" easily!
Me in a nutshell: I'm in my twenties and am a college grad and current law student. I've been in a relationship for 2+ years with the love of my life <3 Love you Andrew! I love working out, running, pushing boundaries, laughing, nail polish, make-up, playing with my hair, gymnastics, scarves, my car ("Sylvia"), and smoothies! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog!
