Hi, and welcome to my little corner of the Internet. I’m a major fitgeek and wear that label proudly. Today, my love of fitness has evolved into a passion for running and for barre-style workouts. I’ve run four half marathons and declared 2012 “the year of 26.2!” — an accomplishment I finally conquered this fall — my husband and I proudly ran the Chicago Marathon together on October 7, 2012! And, ever since embarking on a 60-day challenge at a local barre studio in my area (barre n9ne) in May 2011, I’ve become a new woman. Stronger. Confident. Happy in my own skin. It only took me 33 years to get here but I’m happy to say I’m in the best place possible in life right now. And now I’m happily paying that entire experience forward by teaching at the very studio that changed my life almost two years ago to the day. <3
My husband of 8+ years and I spend as much time doing the things that we love – which yes, includes working out, but also involves travel, wine, good food, and great friends. Hence the name of my blog – EatDrinkBreatheSweat – which stands for eating well, drinking even better, breathing in every single moment in each day we’re on this earth, and getting a good sweat in as often as possible. So, if you’re looking for motivation, a few laughs, and insight into how an “everyday” chick gets her sweat on, then this is the blog for you. Welcome!
And…here are a few pics, in case you’re a curious blogger like me and like to know more about the person behind the blog ;-)
And a few “fit shots” – a couple of me at the barre; another with sis Jo (and fellow barre n9ne instructor); and one of me and Scott after one of our Chicago Marathon finish:
