Guess What? I Am Now A Sweat Pink Ambassador!

This week I received an awesome email saying, "Welcome to the #sweatpink community!" I have been accepted to be a #SweatPink Ambassador. Now some of you may be thinking, "Who cares?" or "What does that mean?" This is what it means to be an Ambassador:

"The Sweat Pink Ambassador community is a place for enthusiastic, positive, inspirational people to connect and support each other in reaching their goals around health, fitness, life... and more. It's a place where we come together and celebrate what we have and reach for even more. It's a place where new friendships spark and running buddies find each other; where you'll always find a cheerleader or a word of advice."

To me, this is such a huge accomplishment because it means that others see the passion I have for living a fit and healthy lifestyle. I know we live in a pretty cruel world where women tend to criticize not only themselves but other women as well. I take a different approach and really try to encourage and motivate who ever wants to make a healthy and positive lifestyle change.  If you have questions or need someone to talk to about your fitness goals then I am all ears.  Sometimes all it takes is to hear someone else cheering you on to keep you going. That's what I hope to be, the cheerleader for others. I'll be the first to admit that I am not a size 0. In fact I am still trying to loose the ten pounds that unexpectedly came out of nowhere last year. I know I have flaws but I am still out there doing the work to get to where I want to be. It all starts with the will and motivation and then you start seeing results. #NoExcuses

Honestly I can't picture my life any other way anymore. I love the feeling of getting a good workout in. I love going out for a run to clear my head. I love being able to lift more than I was able to from my last workout session. I love feeling that euphoria once I cross that finish life. I continue and keep going because I remember how my life was before and I don't want that for myself anymore. I was constantly tired, overweight, unhappy, and plain right miserable. I'm short so even the slightest weight gain is noticeable. After college I had gained 30 pounds and it wasn't pretty. Then I signed up for my first half marathon to motivate myself and the rest is history.

If you feel you have what it takes to be a #SweatPink Ambassador then I highly encourage you to apply. The community so far has welcomed me in and I am trilled for what's to come.

  1. Congrats on becoming an Ambassador! I'm loving the #NoExcuses challenge. I love the motivation and all the participation on social media.

    1. Thank you Amy! Yeah the #NoExcuses challenge has been great! I've met some really nice people.

  2. A huge congrats!!! And nope - not a Sweat Pink Ambassador! Although, for a time I was an Ambassador of a now defunct Canadian based program called I'm Fit Possible. It's fun to be part of a like minded community!

  3. You are amazing parents, and that makes me hopeful.
