When I first started my website as a way to share my recipes, fitness bits, and positive body image promotion with others, I never dreamed that so many people would look at my website AND that the people who were looking at it would think that my ideas were share-worthy. My recipes were just ideas that I tweaked or thought of on my own to keep my severe IBS and Celiac disease from depriving me of delicious foods.
Being accepted as an ambassador and now a contributor makes me feel that what I am doing is making a difference and that I do have good ideas. I am so incredibly happy and proud of myself, sometimes people don't get why I "waste my time doing all of this for free" but the support and encouragement and appreciation I receive lets me know that all of my hard work is worthwhile.
At first, when I read the 'requirements' in the Strong Figure Ambassador Application I felt that applying would be a long shot, but I went for it anyway:
"Strong Figure’s Ambassador Program is made up of messengers and/or representatives of our brand. We want the BEST, FITTEST, STRONGEST, HEALTHIEST people we know to help support, promote, and be a part of STRONG FIGURE."
When I read the welcome email, I was beyond ecstatic. I may not be the best, fittest, strongest, or healthiest version of myself, every single day, but it is something I strive for on a daily basis and THAT'S what is important, I never give up, and that is what makes me a Strong Figure.
I am so thankful for this incredible opportunity Strong Figure has given me! As a contributor I am going to be teaming up with Strong Figure's creator, the amazing Steph, to share some of my recipes with her Strong Figure community and hopefully help Eats and Exercise grow as well!
