Oh, how I LOVE me some blogs! When Jenn and Erin told me I’d be doing a weekly blog, I about shook the FBG logo off my happy little pants doing a happy dance. The personal spins, the fly-on-your-window inside scoop…I LOVE IT! I personally am a blog junkie. I’ve been typing away at a personal blog since I moved out to Los Angeles in 2005. I’ve always loved writing… fitness was an on-and-off relationship though.
Ironically, I was the stubborn FBG-friend (went to school with FBG Jenn) who said I would never be a gym rat because I refused to be body-obsessed like all of the Los Angeles folks I had met before making the big move. Back then, I thought everyone in Los Angeles was anorexic and skinny obsessed. It didn’t take long before Jenn and Erin came a knockin’ with their idea for a fitness blog that would slash all the negative associations I had with working out.
I started out as a guest blogger for the ladies back in 2009 and figured out quickly that sweating for the cause wasn’t such a bad unhealthy thing. In fact, I ran a darn marathon. (Talk about turning a mental 180 degrees!) I’m now obsessed with cardio-weight classes, Spin classes and certain Los Angeles hiking trails. Some day I’ll be bad arse enough to run barefoot along the beach. Soon, my pretties…soon.
In the meantime, expect a somewhat newbie-perspective in my posts. I currently live with my boyfriend who happens to be a trainer and a gym manager. You’d think this would be a match made in heaven, but as you’ll learn in some of my future posts, sometimes love and sweat can make my butt twitch. Be prepared for lots of aha-moments, goofy stories and new La La Land adventures.
I’m an actress in the land of plastic cheeks, suctioned thighs and duck lips…things are gonna get interesting people! —Tish
