Well, what can I say, I have been following blogs religiously every day for the past 8 months or so and thought it was only fitting to start my own. A place for ideas, comments, updates on my life, awesome recipes and ones that bombed, fashion, working out with CrossFit, confidence boosters and everyday things. I'm not much of a writer so I can't promise that the posts will be lengthy, but I do promise to entertain with my lovely accented spelling and some damn good pics! haha
A little about myself..... a "New Yawka" born and raised, just turning 30 and I'm comfortable with that. In a few short months I get to marry my best friend! I'm all about working hard and playing hard. I love to try anything once. I'm athletic and love competition. I grew up playing sports and as I'm getting older, I'm looking for more things to compete in. I've done a Warrior Dash, I've competed in a Figure Competition (on the right), I was in a kickball league, looking to possibly enter in a strongman competition, maybe a bi or tri-athalon (if I can ever get the whole boring running long distance thing down) and then if I wanna get crazy, the CrossFit Games! THEN after all that, God willing, become a mother! I love my family and friends and have pretty much mastered the Art of long distance friendships. Lived on the West Coast for a few years and def realized you can take da girl outta NY but you can't take NY outta da girl!
Did I mention I have OCD? Yes, this is true, I like to deny it and just call it "my way" of doing things, but sometimes the FI (short for fiance in the wedding profile world) likes to call me out on it. Clocks set early even though I remember they are and I'm late anyway. Bed needs to be made by the last one up, or else it throws me off for the whole day. Alarm clock needs to be at an off time, can't be 7:15am, gotta be 7:11, or 7:16am. Don't ask, just read. Collars on people need to be fixed if they are messed, whether it's by me or telling the person, "yeah, umm you need to fix that", threads need to be cut. If I'm in a room, all lights need to be turned on. Telling the people I care about, like it is. I don't sugar coat things, if they need to color their roots, I'm going to let them know, if that lip color is a no go, then yup, gonna let them know. Ok, enough examples, you'll see as time goes by, I have more.
What else....... I have an 8yr old Pit named Bailey. He's the biggest scaredy cat there is, and if you have a problem labeling all dogs according to type, then you need to meet this guy. He will change the stereotype.
and because I know you're going to ask, the future Mr. and Mrs.
FI's name is Eli, he's the owner and coach at Elite Progression- CrossFit Mahopac.
Well, that's about it for now. Hollarrrrrrr for my first post! Hoping to get into the swing of things pretty quickly, so sit back and relax! and enjoy-the-show! (said like a cheerleader with a close handed clap)
I'll leave you with one of my favorite quotes:
Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don't, and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.
