Hey there Engaged and Running readers! Today we are doing something a little special… MEET LINDSAY!
Lindsay is a fellow Sweat Pink Ambassador and is the writer of the “Sweets ‘n’ Sweat” blog. To quote Lindsay the blog is all about the fact that “life is sweet. a little sweat makes it interesting” and how true that is right? Lindsay is an inspiration to the health and fitness community and I am so happy to be able to share some interesting facts about her! I recommend you check out her blog, her page on Facebook, follow her on Twitter, and see what type of stuff she is in to on Pinterest.
Below are a few questions I asked Lindsay to answer so that you all can get to know her! Thanks Lindsay for participating and sharing about yourself with the Engaged and Running readers =)
1. What is your favorite workout? I am loving Les Mills Pump right now and running of course!
2. Why do you blog? I originally started my blog as a way to journal my first half-marathon training. I didn’t expect many to read or care! But, it has really grown since then. My goal, every time I blog, is to motivate. Whether it be by cooking a healthy meal, working out, etc. I just want people to know that I’ve been there and I know how hard it is to get and stay motivated. I want to be a part of their support pillar.
3. What word describes you best? Dedicated.
4. What drives you to get up every morning? The feeling of accomplishment after a great morning workout is such a rush! It’s a great way to start out your day. Period. No questions. You never regret it!
5. If you were invisible, where would you go? To our bedroom and take an extremely long nap!
6. How do you want to be remembered? I am a strong mother and woman. I put my heart into things that I believe in that are good. I would do anything for the people that I love. My determination cannot be shaken. Because I’m just that stubborn
7. What is the kindest thing anyone has done for you? Oh gosh, that is a tough question. An act of kindness can mean so many different things. I always think of of the people who prayed for our family, sent kind words, made phone calls, etc. when my son was in the hospital for three weeks when he was four months old. Kind words and small acts are the big ones for me. I remember them all.
8. Who do you admire? I admire my son, Maddox. He’s only three years old, but he has gone through so much already (medically). He is so strong and so brave. He had a rough first year-a year we will never forget! I can tell that he will be one amazing guy some day
9. If you had 10 minutes to speak to a group of young girls about fitness (say middle school age), what would you say? Do NOT compare yourself to others. EVER! We are all so very different. Be the best that you can be. Don’t get caught up on your image. Love yourself and form good habits. Bad habits come back to bite you later on!
Thank you Lindsay for sharing all of that information with us! I have to say I could not agree more on #9… what great advice that every little girl needs! With that in mind, I will just point out that I recently heard about a program called “Girls on the Run” and I am not involved yet but I fully intend to be. Might be a good way to inspire young girls to be proud of their bodies and happy with who they are! Anyone ever participate in this??
