My First Post!

29 May

Dear Future Friends,

I’m Michelle. I just graduated college a little over a week ago and I’m getting ready to start the next phase of my life.  While graduation is incredibly depressing, I’m excited to see what life has in store…

In college, I was a captain of my Division I Track and Field team and I’ve been active my whole life.  I am a ISSA-certified Personal Trainer and have a job lined up once I get my CPR Certification.  The purpose of this blog is to check my own progress through my workouts and food intake.  I’m also here to answer any workout/nutrition questions you may have and learn from what information you know!

The picture on the top of the page (Marilyn Monroe lifting weights) is my favorite photo ever. I’ve had a huge poster of it in my room since freshman year in college.

I’m coming off a month-long break and today is the first day of my workouts… I realize I will be incredibly sore tomorrow, but I’m pumped for it!

If you have any questions or  tips for me, they’re very much appreciated!

I’ll clue you in on my workout later, I’m gonna go Work IT out!

    Hi Michelle! Your blog looks great! What are you tracking your progress for, if you don’t mind me asking? It sounded as though you had a goal in mind, but maybe you just meant in general. In either case, best of luck!! You’re at such an exciting phase in your life!

      Thanks! And no, I love questions!! Right now, I want to try to transform my body from a bulkier muscular body type to become more lean (but still muscular). I’ve had strict workouts from track and field throughout college that involve strength based lifts/low reps/sprints… Right now I want to do more endurance training and see what happens (I’m kind of my own little ginnea pig!)

    Interesting and different idea for a blog! Are you going to post before, during, and after pics? I think a lot of people would be interested in what you’re eating and doing to lean out. Even guys! Good luck to you!

      Yeah I was actually thinking about doing that, great idea… Thank you!
