Hello!! My name is Angie, a Southern girl by transplant but I will always be a Northern girl in my heart. I was born and raised in Cedarburg, Wisconsin and moved to Pensacola, Florida for college and never left. I love being 5 minutes from the beach, I need to take advantage of it more. I am a single woman, enjoying my amazing life to the fullest and waiting for Mr. Right to come sweep me off my feet.
My life has gone through a major transformation this year and I decided to share my journey with the world. I joined a weightloss support group in June & am amazed at how far I’ve come, I’ve lost 40lbs so far. But more than that I’ve made some of the best friends in the world. I fell in love with running back in August and have some major goals to crush in the new year. I’m training for my first Half Marathon and my first Triathlon, crazy goals right?! I also started taking a Zumba® class and through the instructor was also introduced to REFIT®. Which is like Zumba®, but more contemporary and designed to be used in churches as well as gyms. I became a REFIT®Instructor in November and my 1st class starts in January.
My faith is extremely important to me. I grew up in church, got saved at a Bible Camp when I was 8 and have been doing my best to follow that path. Yes, I am the super sheltered somewhat naive girl, but I wouldn’t trade how I was raised. I went to bible college and have worked in a church setting since then. I love missions and traveling. I have been to India and Nicaragua, I lived in Nicaragua for 4 months teaching English at a orphanage. I work at a Baptist Church preschool during the week, teaching 4-5 one year olds. Its a crazy, somewhat stressful job, but I love it. I also teach one of our Children’s Church services each Sunday at church.
With this blog I hope to encourage others on their journeys as I work through and talk about my own journey. I’m far from perfect, but I think that our imperfections and mistakes shape us into who we will become. I will be sharing my experiences with running, my weightloss & Whole30 journey, sharing recipes, spreading the word about REFIT®, sharing thoughts about my faith, and other random stuff about life.
I’m also a huge reader, love movies & am a HUGE video game nerd.
I have a mentioned how much I LOVE COFFEE!!!!
