About Me

Hi guys! My name is Shannon and I’m a 21 year old college senior majoring in finance and economics.

I’ve been reading healthy living blogs for about a year and a half and in February 2011 I decided to bite the bullet and start my own. I hope to track my workout progress, connect with other members of the blogging community, and express myself through a creative outlet!

Ultimately I would have to say this is more of a FITNESS blog than a FOOD blog. I like food but I’m not a “foodie” and I don’t have the time, talent, or inclination to prepare and document elaborate meals. But working out is definitely my passion!

As far as fitness goes, I’ve always enjoyed going to the gym and running, but I used to be one of those stereotypical girls who wasted hours doing cardio without really seeing any change. It’s not that I didn’t know that weight lifting was important–I totally did–but I didn’t realize just HOW important (and fun!) lifting weights can be and frankly it was easier to breeze onto an elliptical than to develop a strength training routine and plunge into a testosterone-filled weight room.

I’m so glad that I finally did, because over the past months of lifting (since approximately December 2010) I’ve seen HUGE changes in my body and I feel so great about myself! Right now I’m focusing on pushing myself to lift HARDER and HEAVIER and to lift like a dude with moves like squats, benchpress, deadlifts, and (eventually!) pull-ups. I would love to compete in a figure competition someday and it’s my goal to transform my body to the point where training for one becomes feasible. I’ll hope you’ll stick around for the journey!

Some more facts about me:

  • I LOVE to read. I was totally that nerdy kid who read books during recess.
  • I love country music, top 40, and alternative rock, but my favorite will always, ALWAYS be classic rock!
  • I’m from Maryland but I’m convinced I should have been from North Carolina and would love to move there someday.
  • I have a younger sister who is a freshman in college; we are super-close and I miss being away from her!
  • I love to shop. Buying, returning, and exchanging is my hobby
  • I’m a natural blonde

Check back because I’ll probably add more! And I’d love if you would leave me comment or email me at shannonmarie1023@gmail.com…I swear I’ll probably fall over from excitement and get right back to you 🙂

I also have a tumblr at http://ifitwasnteasy.tumblr.com/ that I started in March 2012. I’m using it for more frequent posts to read a broader audience.
