Where in the world is Fit and Busy?

23 Oct

While this week has no real meaning to my blogging timeline, it has a huge meaning to my “real life” timeline. One year ago Sunday, on a very cold day in MN, hubby and I said “I do” in front of so many of our friends and family. As cliche as it is I do love him more than I did that day and I can honestly say, and I think it probably shows in my writing, my priorities have changed in the past year. I still love fitness and strive everyday to live a healthy and inspiring lifestyle, but I’ve been trying to find a balanced life. Unfortunately, for now, it meant not making a fitness competition a priority but I have been able to do so many other amazing things!

We’ve literally moved around the world and back, I started a personal training business in Japan (which I loved), I’m now 3 months in to an awesome ER job, and I’ve been able to spend a lot more time with family over the past year. Even as I write this I’m in Oklahoma visiting my grandmother and uncle. …not too bad for 365 days.

All of this makes me wonder, what inspires you? For me, it’s my family. I want to be healthy and live a lifestyle that I can teach my kids (whenever that time comes). I want to be proud of what I see in the mirror everyday and if I can inspire even one person, that’s even better.
