My name is Melanie, and I’m not (as you will soon be able to tell) a professional writer.  When I saw the post on Skinny Mom’s Facebook page asking for a fitness blogger from Wisconsin, I was nervous about volunteering to say the least.  But I was ready for a new challenge, and one of my favorite quotes is “FEEL THE FEAR AND DO IT ANYWAY”…so here I am, your new Wisconsin Skinny Mom!

A little bit about me…I have 2 boys, Jack and Sawyer, who keep me crazy busy.  I am a certified Turbo Kick instructor and self-proclaimed workout video junkie.  I love sharing my passion for fitness with others and helping them on their own fitness journeys.

I started working out at home after having baby #2.  I was never athletic growing up, so fitness was a whole new adventure for me. Once I started, I was hooked! I found my soul mate workout in Turbo Kick, but I also love lifting weights.  Exercising  quickly became something I looked forward to every day.  Not only did it help me lose the baby weight and get in great shape, it helps me stay sane living in a house full of testosterone!

I am a Wisconsin native, born and raised.  I love going to baseball games, and I live for football season.  GO PACK GO!! I’m addicted to Target & Starbucks, and I’m obsessed with social media!

I will be sharing fitness & foodie news from the Cheesehead state, tips & tricks for staying in shape, motivation, and probably more than a few stories from my own crazy adventures in fitness and mommyhood!!  I hope you will come along for the ride.  If nothing else, it should be entertaining to watch me navigate the world of online blogging! 🙂
