I know I just posted about being thankful for things, but I forgot to add one amazingly awesome thing to that list.
Remember when I told y’all about that Ryne and I were celebrating, but that I couldn’t tell you why? Yeah, that was lame of me. But I can finally share the good news: we both got new jobs! Well, sort of. He is starting with a new company this month, and I am so proud of him. I’m still employed at the same school, but I’ve added a little somethin-somethin to my resume. I am extremely excited to announce that I was chosen to be a Propel Brand Ambassador for 2014.
I’m seriously still in shock that I will have to opportunity to represent Propel this year. While this isn’t a true career change like Ryne is making, I do feel pretty official because I had to take a head shot. And by “take a head shot”, I mean I had to ask Ryne to take my picture in the living room. Same thing.
Why Propel? Simple. If I were a fitness water, we would be twins. Propel is all about real people living well-balanced lives. They create products for passionate exercisers. To me, being a passionate exerciser just means you are in it for the long-haul. You enjoy being active, because it makes you feel good. You make it a priority, but it’s not something you obsess over. You do it for your health, you do it for your family, and you do it for fun.
Speaking of fun, I’d be lying if I didn’t say this was a huge opportunity for me to have a lot of that. I cannot wait to share this experience with y’all. From what I’ve been told, the Propel team has big ideas for what this Ambassador role will look like. There will be traveling, there will be working out, there will be me embarrassing myself in advertisements, and there will be a ton of me thanking you guys. I hate getting all cheesy, but my blogging friends are what made this all possible. If you didn’t “hang out” with me here, I wouldn’t have the chance to take part in any of this. So, before I get out of control, I’ll just leave it at this: Thank you for putting up with me. It seriously means the world to me. I love you guys for that!
While we’re on the topic of LOVE, can I just say how happy I am with the group of people I get to represent Propel with this year? Lee, Theodora, Jon, and Dai definitely don’t know what they’re in for, because we are all about to be best friends for life. We’ll be heading to LA in March, so I’m hard at work perfecting our secret handshake. It’s tough work, but someone has to do it.
Throughout the year, the Propel Ambassadors will be sharing our adventures on the hashtag #PropelFit. Feel free to participate and tag your Propel-inspired workouts and exciting moments as well.
