The Blogger Recognition Award
Wowzers! It's super exciting and humbling to be nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award from not one but two other amazing bloggers! A huge shout out and thank you to both Hey Mommy and Moma Thrift for thinking of me for this award! You both run amazing blogs and I feel so lucky that we connected 🙂
As per the rules…
How Fit As A Mama Bear Began
Well the truth is, this blog has been both a long and short time in the making! If you haven't read about my Journey To Health start here! But basically, I was a fast food junkie, a smoker and horrific physical shape. I didn't change myself overnight but have been working consistently with small steps for the past decade. Within that time frame I switched careers, became a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist & Nutrition Coach and slowly became the crazy health nut I am today 😉
After spending the last few years in coaching and with the birth of my first daughter, I wanted to switch it up a bit and help people focus on all the little things they can do to improve their health. I'm a crazy health nut foodie and workoutj junkie but I realize that this path isn't for everyone. With this blog I wanted to share ideas, recipes, tips and tricks to help others mamas on their path towards natural living.
I've learned there's no such thing as being “healthy” because it means something different to everyone. So my advice is to take small steps, enjoy you day to day life and laugh at all the stumbles!
Stay active mamas xx
My Advice To New Bloggers
True blogging is hard work, so don't under-estimate it.
That said, it's beyond rewarding in so many ways! If you think you're passionate enough about a topic- share it! Write what you love and what you do day to day.
You'll soon find there is so much to do to get your blog up and going- but don't freak out! Try not to overwhelm yourself and just slowly pick away at it.
Be consistent and true to yourself. Keeping your posting schedule consistent makes a huge difference to readers and promo.
Remember you're awesome. With all the to-do's it's easy to shut own a bit. Just getting started it a huge step so always remember you're awesome for taking it 🙂
