Sweat Pink

Check me out over on the Re*Body Total Transformation Blog. I did an interview about my weight loss and fitness. “Lovely Lisa Eirene: Counting Calories and Measuring Success by the Numbers.”

I’m also a Fit Approach/Sweat Pink Ambassador now! It’s a really cool, supportive community of other women who are into fitness and healthy living. I encourage anyone interested to check it out and apply to be an ambassador. The ladies are all awesome and friendly! There’s also a badge at the bottom of this page for easy link access.
