Hey, my name is Emily. Welcome to my world! What started as a place to organize my recipes without a recipe box (I hate clutter!) has turned into so much more over the past few years. ❤
I am a corporate event planner, blogger, entrepreneur, and online health and fitness coach. I am passionate about food (especially pasta) and you will always find me creating a new recipe or checking out a new restaurant either in my home city of Boston or when I am on the road traveling for work or pleasure. I am a huge New England Patriots football fan and each season you can find me at quite a few of the home games where I love to tailgate and cook up yummy treats and cocktails for my friends!
My health and fitness journey started in September 2014. After months of trying to commit to a gym and constantly being on the road for work made it hard for me to stay consistent. When I did get to the gym it was usually after working a full day and then needed to spend at least an hour there waiting to get on a machine I wanted or to go to a group exercise class. By the time I got home it was close to 8pm and I was totally drained. Wasn’t exercise supposed to give you energy??
I am a huge foodie and going out to eat and enjoying delicious cocktails is a huge part of my life, and a part I will never give up! However, without exercise my pants were starting to get tight and I was unhappy in my own skin. I found myself covering up in flowy shirts, choosing leggings over jeans, or not rocking a cute dress because I hated the way it looked. Formal affairs such as weddings or holiday parties gave me anxiety because I didn’t feel comfortable in any of the clothes I wanted to wear.
When the opportunity to join a private online accountability group was given to me, I was extremely hesitant. Would I be able to commit? Am I going to STARVE?! I swore up and down this was not for me. I already had my mind set that after the 3 weeks in the group were up I would be done with it and would go back to my normal, inconsistent, life convinced nothing would change me.
To my surprise, I loved the accountability group! I found myself posting in it daily letting everyone know I got my 30 minute workout in or sharing a new recipe I was so inspired to create. I loved the people in the group because we had similar interests and they were always so supportive and encouraging. I became really happy working out at home and was seeing RESULTS! I had more energy, my clothes were fitting better, my skin was glowing.
People started noticing there was a difference in me and began to ask me what I was up to. They were curious about what changed so quickly and looking to me for help and accountability so they too could feel great and I was more than happy to help them.
By October I was running my own accountability group and continue to run one each and every month to this day. What started out as my personal fitness journey has turned into so much more! I have met so many new people who have become close friends, I have created a supplemental income that I can use in any way I choose, and I get to travel EVEN more.
What excites me the most is my team of amazing people who trusted me and took a leap of faith to join me on this journey. They are changing other peoples lives through health, fitness and freedom and creating a life they only dreamed of for themselves!
Every day I am proud of what I am accomplishing both with my personal health and fitness as well as building my dream life. I am still a work in progress and every day is not perfect but I love every second of it!
I started this page to share my journey with you. I hope it inspires you to go after what you are passionate about! We only get 1 life so why not make it the best one?
