I saw this poster on the web recently and saved it to one of my Pinterest boards.
(PS – Pinterest is a pretty cool site)
For me, the things that fill my time when I am procrastinating are:
- Learning about Social Media
- Playing with new web tech
- Researching health and fitness
Some of these items are things that would actually translate into my “real world” job, but I don’t often have as much time to devote to them as I would like while working.
When I read that poster I thought, I should probably make more of an effort to incorporate some of those things into my life in attempts that may lead me down the road to merging what I currently do for work (web stuffs) with more of my other passions.
That’s why I’m throwing in my name to be a FitFluential ambassador for the Las Vegas area.
I would love to be able to be a part of this network so I can help spread messages about healthful brands and companies. But I don’t want to just talk fitness the way we see in so much of mainstream media. I will never ever tell you to “drop inches” or “lose a size” or “cut calories” because I believe that health or fitness is so much more than just removing things from yourself. It’s about ADDING.
- Adding activities that make you feel good.
- Adding friends that support and encourage you.
- Adding positive messages to your life.
- Adding things that help you perform to the best of your ability.
I wish I could say that I have the magic formula for all of that and will share it with you if I’m picked as a FitFluential ambassador. But I don’t… I’m still learning and evolving. Each new article I read, product I try, experience I have gives me more information… information that I love being able to share with others. That’s why I coach newbie runners & walkers. That’s why I blog. That’s what feeds my soul.
So I’m humbly throwing my name into the pool… and I look forward to being able to share whatever I learn with my readers, whatever it may lead to!
Yay, I’m glad you applied to be a FitFluential ambassador! You’d do a great job, and the kind of “fit” that you’d promote is what the country/world needs more of 🙂 Good luck, I hope you get chosen! I briefly considered applying but quickly talked myself out of it. I also just got a pinterest account but I haven’t used it yet, I should probably start doing that…it looks like a cool site.
You would be an awesome ambassador! You send such a great message. Good luck!
I love this statement! It makes me wonder though…what do I do when I procrastinate (which is a lot). Something to ponder.
As for you as a FitFluential ambassador…that’s a no-brainer. You already do it! You’re awesome!
