Friday Fun - Five Fun (non-fitness) Facts About Me

To change things up a little, I thought I'd share a few things about me that are totally NOT fitness related (yes there is more to my life than fitness and nutrition!)

Five Non-Fitness Facts About FatCityFit:

1) I am Canadian! I was born in Toronto, raised in Vancouver. Vancouver will always be home to me but I have to say, my heart is decidedly in Texas and it sure feels like home here too!

2) I was a competitive horseback rider for years (thanks for footing the bill Mum!). I'd love to start riding again, but I think this time, I might go for barrel racing and western riding instead of showing hunters and jumpers! Who knows, right now, it's just too pricey of a hobby! One day though...

3) I am a member of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority (alumni) and joining was the best decision I ever made. I loved having a group of girls I could count on in university and I've stayed friends with some of them over the years. More importantly though, Kappa is an amazing organization that can connect you to some of the most amazing women (Kate Spade, Ashley Judd to name a few) and I've just recently gotten in contact with the alumni association down here in TX and I'm looking forward to being involved with Kappa again!

4) I have one sister and three (half) brothers. My sister and I are insanely close, she's one of my best friends. She's having her first baby this year and I have to admit, it's the first time I've been really, really sad about living so far away from her. It breaks my heart to think of not being there for the birth of her first child. My brothers are older than me so we didn't grow up as closer as my sister and I but I consider myself very lucky to have lived with all them at some point in my life, to have brothers around the world that I can visit and knowing that all three of them will always be there for me. Family first!

5) I have an insanely good sense of direction but give terrible directions. I can pretty much always tell you which was in North, East, South and West but if I want you to turn left, I will probably say right and vice versa!

Tell me a little about you: what do you love to do? what's your family like? what non-fitness thing would you love to share about yourself?
