Hi friends! Welcome to Lil Miss Fitness Freak Thanks so much for stopping in to check me out!
My name is Chelsea, I’m 21 and a recent graduate from McMaster University (shoutout to all my Canadian’s!). I completed 4 years in the Honours Psychology program and earned myself a shiny new Bachelor of Science diploma that will sit all nice and pretty on my parents wall…. Don’t get me wrong, while I am very proud my accomplishments, I am also struggling as I feel as if I am at a cross road. Do I continue with psychology and go into clinical psychology as the plan in my head dictates oorrrr do I take a leap of faith and go into something that really excites me, which is to go for a registered dietitian (RD)? This is one of the reasons why I started this blog. I want to explore a passion, one that has always been apparent but one that I have have never really considered as a long term goal. The possibilities are great and I’m totally excited to start and I hope that you can accompany me on my journey of exploration and learning 🙂
So enough of the seriousness, who is “Lil Miss Fitness Freak” ?? Well lets break’er down shall we:
“lil” …derives from the fact that, well, I’m small (as my bf would say). Everything about me is little, I’m 5 feet tall, I barely fit into adult clothing and shoes, and some days it just feels as though the world was made too big for me, but over the years I have come to accept my miniature stature for all its greatness as:
…yup I think that sums it up 😉
“miss” ….that’s a given, female blogger over here
“fitness freak” ….well I LOVE all things health and fitness and can gab about it for days. I feel like I live and breathe this stuff! I’m very big into lifting weights and I take pride in the fact that the gym is a major component of my lifestyle. I have also dabbled in yoga, which I now get to enjoy with my bf as he has recently began his journey as a self proclaimed yogi (check him out at http://andreguantanamo.com/).
One thing that my ‘name’ fails to encapsulate is my additional love for nutrition. I truly enjoy cooking and baking and I am known for “healthifying” everythaaang. Some of these experiments are successes and some are failures, buts that’s all part of the fun right?
So now that you know a lil bit about Lil Miss Fitness Freak, why is she starting a blog? Well, as I mentioned earlier, one of the main reasons is to explore my interest in nutrition and fitness in an attempt to figure out what I’m going to do with my life. The other very important reason is to have the ability to share my experiences, my knowledge and what inspires me with you all so maybe, just maybe I can spark an interest in health and fitness or simply contribute to keeping the lifestyle alive and exciting. Additionally, I’m always open to learning new things, so I also hope that I can learn a lil bit from you all along the way too. I share, you share mmmkaay 😀
I really appreciate you stopping by and my hope is that this blog can create a platform for us to learn from each other 🙂
