Look! I wrote and published a book! 100 Reasons To Lose 100 Pounds: A Smashing Transformation in Mind Body and Spirit
Also, may I have your input on this survey helps me come up with relevant content to share with you 🙂
Swole (adjective): “Swole” or “Swoll”, short for “swollen,” is a slang term used to describe someone who has developed a large or well-defined physique from weight lifting (from Know Your Meme).
One of my swolemates in spirit, Smarty Pants 🙂
Look how dang swole she is! Fit and strong!
Swole is my punny variation of “body” in the mind, body and soul approach to overall health and wellness. I chose swole because lifting was something that got me started on my fitness journey, and I believe it’s important for all of us – women and men – to incorporate strength training into out fitness routine.
Nutrition and fitness go hand-in-hand, and though there’s a lot of focus all around on the fitness component, the fact of the matter is that nutrition really is king. After all, we can’t drive a Corvette without proper fuel, right? Same goes for our bodies. We can be junkers that are unreliable and problematic, or we can ride smoothly and feel great while doing so.
Speaking of nutrition, I’m a Certified Nutrition Specialist through the American Academy of Sports Dietitians and Nutritionists, and I promote whole food-based eating, and I’m VEHEMENTLY opposed to supplements, trainers who push their personal agendas onto clients, and “crazy wraps”.
As I continue to build my site, this is the place where I will be posting fitness and nutrition resources, as well as information about fitness and nutrition challenges.
Fitness comes in every style, just like we do 🙂 High intensity intervals isn’t for everyone, and neither is Yin yoga, However, by trying it out and being influenced, we find what works for us.
My aim is to encourage and support healthy habits in word and deeds; I’ve found that action is the best motivator for people.
I’m very fortunate to have accountability systems, and I find that the best way for me to stay on course is to lead people in wellness challenges. There are several things that keep me fit, active, and joyful in my fitness routines.
Currently my groups are on Facebook, and anyone is welcome to join one or all of them – all that is required is a willingness to give it a shot, to be supportive, and to be involved!
