Feeling FitFluential

30 Jan

Normally, I’m an after work exerciser. I get up at 6:30, get to work around 9:00, leave work around 5:00, and get to the gym by 6:30- not to get back home again until 7:30 or 8:00. It makes for a long day. So last night, when I noticed that my 6:30pm spin class was already full, I decided to go with the flow (Me? Go with the flow? I know!) and sign up for the 5:15am class.


Even though I had to get up at 4:45am- an hour of day I haven’t seen since I don’t even know when– I got my 45 minute kick butt workout in before the sun came up. And I loved it. I left class feeling energized, and had one of the best days at work I’ve had in a long time. Usually I start feeling sluggish by…11am? But today, I just kept going. And on a Monday morning, too! I think I need to try the morning workout thing more often!

Besides the early morning workout that I’m feeling rather proud of (Jordan didn’t think I’d be able to get up that early…I showed him ;)), I have an even better reason to feel FitFluential today.

Last week, I applied to be a FitFluential Ambassador. After reading blog after blog from girls in the FitFluential Ambassador program, I thought that it was something I could do. Something that I really wanted to do. So, I wrote an essay, told them my story, and waited for feedback. And today’s email gave me all of the feedback I needed…


I am now a FitFluential Ambassador! I am so thankful, honored and excited to be a part of this program. A program that supports fitness enthusiasts of all levels, a program that encourages overall health and wellness, a program that emphasizes the importance of balance. If you’ve ever noticed the copious amounts of chocolate that I inhale consume, you know that I’m all about balance ;).

I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my week. Now, I must go end my day with ‘The Bachelor.’ It’s all about balance, I said :).

Tell me one good thing about your Monday.

How are you FitFluential?

    Wow I’m so excited for you. You certainly deserve it-you are so inspirational girl. I’m glad the workout went well.

    I also love working out in the morning! Unfortunately, my gym doesn’t open until 5:30, which just does not give me quite enough time to get in my workout, get home, shower, eat and catch a bus to make it to my 8:30am class on time. I tried it once and had to cut out part of the strength training program I was doing!

      Oh no! My gym only offers spinning in the morning, so that’s one of the downsides. I wish that more classes were offered. It would make me more motivated to go at that time!

    Congrats Emily! That’s so exciting!

    Best thing about my Monday? 50+ degrees on January 31. That’s what’s up. My conditioning class was moved outside today it was so nice (and it was way less butt-kicking-ly awful outside than inside…haha).

    Welcome to the FitFluential family 🙂

    I’m curious to see what you decide on the working out front. I personally work out at different times every day, but if I was a full time gal you better bet your bottom dollar I’d be out first thing in the morning!

      Thank you! The exhaustion from my morning workout caught up to me, so I might stick to the evenings for now :).
