When we hop over to Amy's Quest, one word comes to mind: real. Amy has maintained a 100-pound weight loss for nearly seven years, but that doesn't mean every day is full of sunshine and butterflies. And she never tries to make us believe it's always easy, which is what we love about her. Some posts may be short and loaded with emotional impact; others might be fun and full of zest and energy, giving us the boost we needed to lace up our sneaks for a quick run or clip in our shoes for a Spin class. Either way, popping over to her blog isn't a bad idea if you're in need of some inspiration from someone who's gone through a major lifestyle change. We thought she seemed friendly enough, so we reached out to hear a bit more about the blogger behind the screen. Here's what she had to say:
My favorite way to work out: Spinning! Ever since I strained my shoulder in a bike accident last summer, I've decided to keep things safe and bike indoors instead. I love the intensity!
Most embarrassing song I'll admit I work out to: I have a pretty eclectic mix of music on my workout playlists, but one song that always makes me smile is "Night Moves," by Bob Seger.
My fitness mantra: You are stronger than you think.
My fave fit snack: Turkey breast and Laughing Cow cheese wrapped around pickled asparagus spears.
My biggest indulgence: After a night of playing baseball, the thing I look forward to most is post-game chicken wings with the team.
