Welcome to crazy lil fit chick!
I'm Lindsay, I am 23 years old, I'm definitely a little crazy and I love being fit. At 5'7 I'm not exactly "lil" but cut me some slack because I'm totally new to this and honestly I just couldn't think of anything better. :(
So why blog? Well...I love to write. Before embarking on my academic journey in psychology I was an English major. When I applied to college I knew two things: I like to read and I like to write. What the hell does one do with that? According to my mom- one declares the major " communications" before one even attends her first college fair.
Unfortunately, in high school all i cared about was partying, boys, tanning and running. If i had my way I would have majored in tanning and minored in running. Needless to say my grades were sub-par and I got accepted into a whopping two schools out of the twelve I applied to. I got wait listed to one.
The college I went to didn't offer communications so I declared a major in English. Classes were boring I didn't no what I wanted and I had no goals. So I started bartending and continued to party and drink and smoke...
Until my 19th summer when my close friend died...in a car accident...attempting to return home after a night of partying.
Omg...what was I doing? I knew if I didn't change that was my fate. So I quit the bar, got a new job at a gym and started running again (track girl throuhout high school). I had so many questions about life and death and health and I needed them answered. Suddenly I had this hunger for knowledge and I needed to learn everything
So I switched my major from English to a double major in Psychology and Philosophy. I realized two things that year:
1. I want to help people...by hearing their problems and listening
2. I never want to stop learning
I spent my last two years of college busting my ass at the gym and busting my ass at the library. By the time I graduated in May 2010 I ran several races including two half marathons brought my GPA up to a steady 4.0 and got accepted into three amazing graduate school counseling program.
Now, at 23 I'm about to start my second year of grad school, earning a Masters Degree in Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness at NYU and compete in my first fitness show!
In the past 5 or 6 years I've come a long way. I've also struggled with an eating disorder, but I think I'm finally figuring out how to cope with that. This blog is my way of letting it all out: my obsessions, goals, hobbies, work outs, recipes and my overall craziness.
A lot goes on in this little head of mine...I need to let it out somewhere. And, thus...crazy lil fit chick was born.
