Writing “about” pages is always a little awkward. How do I define myself? I’m 32 years old and have been married for 13 years to an amazing man with whom I share seven children – four daughters, ages 6, 9, 12, and 15 and three sons, ages 13, 14, and 15. I’m a personal trainer, certified through the International Sports Sciences Association and I operate a virtual community and a local boot camp class under my business, Fitness Rebooted. My husband is an offshore oilfield worker, so I play single parent for 32 weeks out of the year while he lives on a five-story platform floating 10,000 feet above the ocean floor, drilling for oil.
I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 1992 so you’ll find a moderate amount of mentions about that. I suffered from a plethora of symptoms for over 20 years until I decided to take matters into my own hands. I joined a local boot camp in May 2012 to improve my overall health, modified my diet and have since found that the condition that once consumed my whole life is barely a thought anymore! I blog quite regularly about health and fitness and am addicted to running in road and obstacle races in and around metro Atlanta.
Singing is one of my many passions — you’ll often find me uploading song covers to my YouTube channel! I also occasionally vlog there about my random thoughts, experiences and of course, my family.
Despite dropping out of high school after the birth of our oldest daughter when I was 17, I went on to earn a college degree in Accounting, graduating with Honors. After nearly four years of doing corporate taxes, I pulled the plug and decided to stay at home with my children so I could be more involved in their lives. I now own and operate a successful web development/graphic design and hosting business, eDesign-Pro Company through which I also provide consulting and tech support services.
I’m a lifestyle blogger and enjoy working with brands on various promotional campaigns helping them by reviewing their products and services while sharing our life (along with the things that do and don’t work for us) with the world through online journaling. As such, it goes without saying that I am a social media enthusiast, updating quite regularly to engage my audiences/friends on Facebook and Instagram… and occasionally Twitter although that platform is largely neglected by me these days :)
