My first blog post!

So, I have always wanted to do a blog, but I was afraid that I wouldn't have time to keep it up to date, etc. That may be the case, but I figured I would at least try!  First off, you have no idea how hard it is to think of a 'cool' name for a blog. Seriously, it's ridiculous. Eventually, I asked my very creative cousin (Hi Megan!) to help me out. We came up with some that we thought were pretty awesome, such as,,, but they either weren't available or just didn't seem 'right.' But, Fitness with a Fork seemed to encompass everything that I am trying to focus on here without singling out one specific type of exercise.

My hope for this blog is that it not only inspires at least one person who may stumble upon it, but that it will help inspire me as well. I think as a fitness instructor and someone who is studying nutrition, we tend to get caught up in the whole bad v. good thing. But, I just want this to be FUN! Cooking should be fun! Exercising should be fun! We shouldn't dread these things or see them as wrong or right. We should simply focus on the fact that in the end, it makes us feel better and essentially BE better.

  1. Ok, here goes my first post. I will say the older you get the harder it is to stay in shape, but it is even more important. I am 54 years old and I hope that one day when I have grandchildren I still will be able to play with them like I did with my two sons Maybe sounds crazy, but what a blast I had with them.
    If you can stay with a excerise plan for 2 weeks, you will be hooked and realize how much better you feel and how alive you really can be. Get Moving and Keep moving everyone.
