Hi there! The name’s Nikki, and some of you may know me from my other blog, Nicranium.
I am a Toronto-based fashion design student, who has always had a passion for health and fitness. Basically this blog is a way for me to not only motivate myself to get in the best shape of my life, but to share with you the health and fitness tips that I learn along the way. Of course since I am a Fashion Design student I will be sharing some tips on that as well (such as how amazing Nike sports bras are!…more on that later). Ultimately I would like to foster a sense of community where tips can be traded and shared. With that in mind, here is my list of personal goals (some easily attainable, some a little obscure).
Goal #1: Run a Half (and eventually a full) Marathon
I have just recently registered for a half marathon in May, and am very excited. Currently I run about 40km a week, so you could say that I am already “conditioned” if you will, however I start my actual training on November 1st. Presently I’m nervous/excited/nervous. I will keep you posted!
Goal #2: Be Featured in a Fitness Magazine
I know, I know. This goal is a little bit off the wall, and may never come true (although for the record, I did say IN a magazine, not on the cover!)…but weren’t we always told to dream big? Also, is there any more motivation to get a rockin’ healthy bod than to picture yourself scantily clad in Women’s Health? Not many that I can think of!
I also have a few other less major goals such as…
Goal #3: Fit into my prom dress – After all, I did buy it with the intention of wearing it more than once! This goal isn’t a huge stretch, however…the dress doesn’t have any stretch. Still a little bit of work before I get there!
Goals #4 and #5: Run the Warrior Dash, and beat my time on the CN Tower Climb (18 minutes and 17 seconds for those of you who are interested!)
Goal #6: Get my black belt in a martial art (I have my blue belt in karate but that’s not nearly as cool).
Goal #7: Become a badass surfer…doesn’t everyone really just want to be Kate Bosworth in Blue Crush? I do anyway.
Trust me. There are more, but let’s not go overboard just yet! So what can you expect from me in the coming months?
- an open policy: I plan on being pretty frank in my subject matter because really, I am aiming for results.
- tips and discussions on fitness, running, healthy eating, equipment, etc.
- FUN. I like to have fun, and I hope that you guys will join me for the ride. I am really looking forward to getting your feedback, and maybe learning from you as you learn from me, because trust me, I’m not an expert. What are your goals, let me know! I look forward to hearing from each and every one of you.
