  • The Truth Behind This Flower Power Blogger

    Posted on July 19, 2013 by Wendy

    I own a company that sells fitness apparel, how did I get into this business?  It's not for my love of fitness, I can tell you that straight up.  In fact, while I do exercise on a regular basis I am far from a fitness addict.  Those endorphins you hear about have just never impacted me I guess.  I force myself to workout and dread it almost everyday.  I make my friends workout with me, mostly because without them I would be bored to tears and bail as soon as something became even somewhat strenuous. I thought owning a fitness apparel company would make me passionate about exercise, nope, hasn't happened.  I do look awfully cute when I workout though {minus the bright red face} and I've got more sports bras than the average girl and they all hold my girls in place while I sweat.

    The items I carry on the site are ones that I would truly workout in, every item on here is tried and true.  If I haven't tried it, my girlfriends have {for example my D cups will not work in the Handful bra} or my sister has tested out the plus size goods for me. In fact many of the photos on the site are of my girlfriends and my sister is in a few shots as well.

    One of the features on the site is the blog.  As you can see I haven't blogged in over seven months.  I guess you just get caught up in work, family, and everyday life to keep up with the blogging aspect.  My SEO guy tells me he can have someone write blog posts for me... I can't go there.  A year or two ago I agreed to that, once, just once.  The writer submitted the post to me and it was all about the correct running shoe and to check out our selection.  I informed her {not so nicely} that we did not carry running shoes!  What the?  So, I have not hired a writer for the blog, and have dropped the ball myself.  However, today is the day, I will start blogging on here.  I will plug the site, of course, that is the mission after all.  But in order to have anything interesting to say I'm just going to start rambling about what I'm interested in.

    First topic... I am now 40 and intend to get serious about my health. I have two daughters and want to be able to keep up with them and live a long and healthy life so I can enjoy them as long as possible. In the past year I have lost about 15 pounds and am now about 4 pounds away from what I lied to the DMV about on my drivers license.  I'm hoping by the end of next month to be truthful on my license, but not for too long, I'd love to drop well below that number. We've got a wedding in the family coming up in a little under two months, so it's time to get serious! I will not be in a zillion photos and be embarrassed, I already bought a killer dress that is just a smidge too small.  I WILL rock this dress in less than two months, and I WILL be slimmer and toner. Let the journey begin...
