A little bit about the girl behind the blog…
I’m 26 and was born and raised in Toronto, Canada but have been calling Auckland, New Zealand home since April 2009. And I absolutely love it here.
I have an amazing boyfriend, who loves and supports me fully and unconditionally. He comes up quite often in me blog, so you’ll get to know a little about him, as well. I have great friends – both here and back home – who keep me laughing and push me to achieve my goals in life (then celebrate those accomplishments with some drinks and more laughter). And even though I’m basically on the opposite side of the earth from my family, they are my rock. They keep me grounded and I know they would do absolutely anything for me. Let’s be honest – I’m a damn lucky girl!
Why this blog? Accountability and motivation. I don’t want to be waif-thin. I don’t want to eat incredibly restrictive diets just to slip into a size 4 dress. I want to be fit. Strong, toned, flexible and energetic. I want to look and feel great because my body is getting the nutrition and exercise it needs to work at peak levels. So I’m laying it all out there. This is my journey to fit.
