I am very excited to have been asked by Michelle to do guest post, this is my first official guest post as I am still new to the blogging world.
All About What Makes Me Chelsea
I am currently living in Blair, Nebraska and teach 3rd grade in Bennington NE. I am originally from Omaha, which is a bigger city. It has taken some time to get used to the small town atmosphere. I live with my boyfriend of 2 years, who works in agriculture, along with my puppy Cooper. We are hoping to buy a house soon and I am looking forward to a hopefully soon engagement.
I really got into fitness during my Senior year of high school. I had always been athletic (cheerleading, track and swim team), but had the mentality that I could eat whatever I pleased, it caught up to me quickly!! Throughout the years after high school, I slowly learned more and more about eating healthy and becoming more involved with exercise.
When it comes to working out, I really like to mix things up. You can say I go in spurts…I will go a year focusing on running then turn to more high impact cardio mixed with weights. I love everything about exercise, and if my body could allow it I would spend all day in the gym or on the trails running. I have done several shorter races in my past, 5k’s and 10 k’s. I have found that running shorter distances works well with my body. When I increase my running to longer distances, my blood sugar levels get harder to stabilize (I am hypoglycemia).
I just started my blog this year, and I was shocked and amazed to find out how many people out there have the same desire for eating healthy and staying fit as I do. I enjoy blogging because it gives me a chance to relate to others and also express my ideas and thoughts. I have learned a lot about running, weight lifting and nutrition over the past year just from reading blogs alone.
I hope you enjoyed my guest post, and thanks again to Michelle for letting me get a chance to talk a little bit about me!!
