Thanks to all of our fabulous FNL applicants!
We were absolutely blown away by the number of fabulous entries that we received for the Face of FNL contest. Originally we had intended to find one winner. We were so overwhelmed with the inspiring submissions that we couldn’t narrow down our choice to a single face of FNL. Which means that we have decided to have not one, but two faces of FNL!!
We are so happy to welcome Kristy and Kim to be our two faces of FNL! We are looking forward to helping you both achieve your health and nutrition goals over this next year!
Meet Kim & Kristy – our two inspiring faces of FNL.
Kim is a stay at home mother of two. She started following a plant based diet about 3 years ago. Kim’s plant based diet has been leaving her unsatisfied, and without energy. Kim is hoping that upon participating in the FNL program, she will learn how to eat a more balanced plant-based diet. She hopes to finally reach a healthy and maintainable weight, achieve her fitness goals, and be a great role model to her children and family. Check out Kim’s inspiring story!
Kristy is an actress, and writer. In the past 3 years she has started following a plant-based diet, given up her microwave (too many toxins!) and started practicing yoga. Kristy has been battling with her sweet tooth, and has been struggling to eat healthy on a budget. Kristy’s goals for FNL is to help her conquer these battles, along with incorporating more exercise in her daily routine, and being more aware of nutritious, whole foods. Check out Kristy’s motivating story!
We are so looking forward to helping Kim and Kristy reach their goals! We will be documenting their transformation throughout this exciting journey including their challenges, improvements, and progress. Stay tuned for some motivation and inspiration from these two fabulous women!
Yours in good health,
-Marni Wasserman & Team
I am turning 30 this year and my birthday just happens to fall on 11/11/11. Not only is November 11th my birthday but I was also my mom’s little gift on her birthday. Yes I was her present and we share the same special birthday.
Obviously 11 is a significant number in my life having it on this day and this month, but now the 11th year …that is somewhat amazing – and not to mention I was born at 11:03? How is that for numerology, now if anyone can read into this and make some meaning out of it, I would love to hear more!
November 11th is a day that is recognized globally as Remembrance Day, a day to reflect and acknowledge the heroes that fought in the war.
Don’t worry I am not going to get all political or historical, in fact I am actually going to turn this around and make this about you!
We all need to take time to do this for ourselves every once in a while. Making it about us, reflecting, acknowledging, loving and experiencing gratitude for just who you are!
Most of us are so busy going about our days moving forward moving forward. But sometimes you have to stop, sit and think back to just how fabulous you really are and what you have accomplished!
It’s not about bragging. It’s about acknowledging and having a little self appreciation. Most people go through life not doing this, and it can actually break you down over time.
So today, I would like you to write down 5 things you accomplished this year in 2011 – whether it is business related or personally. Did you have a baby, did you move to a new country, change jobs, get a new bike, take up yoga? Maybe it’s more general, have you started eating better, became a vegetarian?
Here is what I have accomplished this year (so far)!
Getting married my amazing husband Ryan on July 31st.
Moving into a new condo (unit #211) with Ryan and loving every inch of it!
Reaching more people through a new and exciting series of ebooks, adding more classes to my calendar, having a full team with three staff and lots of amazing coop student and creating a brand new Culinary Nutrition Program and working on my book!
Embracing my health and well-being by staying active, (running, yoga, kettlebells and spinning) while continuing to thrive on a plant based diet!
Flourishing my amazing relationships with my friends and family and making some very new and important relationships.
Please share with me below – I want to know why 2011 has been so special for you!
