Happy Friday, my friends! I’m sorry I missed Shout Outs last week – I wasn’t able to get it all done and scheduled before leaving for our trip to Florida. But without further adieu, here are some people who stood out to me this week!
– MEGAN –
I’ve been following Megan since her Sunshine ‘n Spice blogging days, but this shout out is specifically for her Instagram account. I’ve literally watched Megan transform her body over the years, and I’m
creepily so proud of someone I’ve never met ~*IRL*~. But what I’m most proud of is how she’s been so open about her struggle with anxiety. Megan could easily just post pictures of her amazing body with a caption like #beastmode but she really spills her guts and opens up about how lifting has been her healthy coping mechanism for her battle with anxiety. If you just look at her, you might think I could never relate to someone who looks so perfect but she’s a shining example of embracing her human side and preaching “progress, never perfection.” She inspires me and I adore her!
Lindsay and Tim are a wife + husband duo who have dedicated their lives to helping others get healthy. I’m part of their current 60 day challenge, and it’s a totally free (private) accountability group on Facebook where they provide support, advice, and a sense of community for people on their healthy-living journey. It’s awesome! This specific shout out is for Lindsay, because not only has she inspired me, but her recent transformation “after baby” has caught the attention of the big wigs at BeachBody, and they’ve asked to talk to her in person this month! Again, I’m so proud!
– LINDSAY –
I have to give Lindsay a shout out because she’s so nice. Earlier this week, I sent her a scatter-brained email out of the blue asking her about blog things, and she responded to me within minutes. I’m actually shocked by how quickly she responded, because she wrote me an in-depth, candid email and I am so appreciative! Some big-time bloggers take days, even weeks to respond, and I was simply impressed by her kindness, candor, and willingness to help me.
