Versatile Blogger Award – 2017 Nomination

So I will be honest in saying that I received this nomination a couple of weeks ago and promised I would get to it and never really did.. not because I didn’t want to but my brain was full of other important things. I apologize for the delay but hopefully it is not too late to do this award justice. 


For starters  I would like to thank the blogger whom nominated me for this award, and if you haven’t had the chance to check this blog out, please do so. I haven’t had a full blown look over everything she has written, but from the few post I have read, she seems to have a good attitude and helpful personality! love it.

Hello! College graduate in exercise science and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. My blog has all kinds of fun topics, something for everyone who is anyone that involves themselves with fitness. I like to think of fitness as a confidence booster, something to make us feel good and look good & pushes us to do things that make us feel more productive, unstoppable and stronger mentally and physically. My blog focuses on building people, and helping people see their true potential, while also sharing my journey with workouts, competing with powerlifting, and sharing how to's on workouts, so you step inside the gym with more knowledge. I don't know everything but I am on a voyage to build my character, my strength and work on my weaknesses --- with awesome people in my corner who support me and my goals. I plan on being your cheerleader, friend, coach and trainer all-in-one and most of all, I want to be your listener, the person who can listen and gain more knowledge about you and learn what makes fitness important to you; what's your why! (Your why will carry you to the finish line). It's important to have purpose for something, because you will need that purpose when you start to give up on yourself or want to quit. "Don't let the fire that guides you, dim" - Shay-lon Besides the fitness stuff, I reside in Ohio, love dogs and love pizza. Typical 26 year old trying to build an empire that brings out the best in others and makes me the best person I can be in all aspects in my life. Before I die, I want a reason to live, and I was given that reason each day I am able to wake up --- I have learned to not take life for granted and to explore as much as possible because to live with zero regrets would be fantastic! "I've conquered many things, but I still have much to learn about life, because nobody can know everything. & every battle is different" - Shay-lon

  2. Hi Shay-lon, thank you for having a high regard to me and my blog and as well into putting effort in writing this post for all of us nominated. I would like to follow the chain but I will have to cut that short for now as I didn’t have enough time yet to meet other bloggers and have a ‘tangible’ relation to what they have posted. Honesty is the best policy.
    I would like to add, the effort you put into this brings bloggers together, in between so many we become so insignificant and worthless. “What goes around, comes around” and this is my share for your positive attitude. Thank you.

    1. Hello!
      Hope you had a wonderful memorial day weekend!
      Also, thank you very much for being so kind, I totally understand what you mean by honesty is the best policy and I appreciate your explanation. It definitely makes sense. I would have to agree, it does help to bring bloggers together, I always hope someone new finds these post helpful and this whole award system as an uplifting way in letting them know they are doing wonderful 🙂 I don’t always nominate new people, but people who I have had a chance to sometimes speak with or read their post often. I like being able to reach out to other bloggers.

      1. Oh wow! really? It isn’t easy having social anxiety, well any anxiety really. I have always had social anxiety though. I found that the more adventurous I became, the better it got in certain circumstances. It is a long process and takes time and it took me years, so it might not ease up for a long time.. depending on the person and their severity. I know people who take meds and say they work, but I choose to not take meds because I want to work through it on my own. I noticed when I drank tea it calmed me a bit too, and exercise definitely helps 🙂

      2. You are awesome, thank you for sharing. My husband is set in his ways. He does not like going out of his comfort zone, but he is a tea drinker. I have heard of teas for anxiety. I’m going to look into that a bit more now.

        My son though I try to gently push my son out of his comfort zone. I hope I can help him learn to cope with it while he is young.

      3. Well that is one of those things, age does cause habit many times, so maybe your husband is okay with it but hopefully you find a tea that will be helpful to him. Working on your son while he is still young will be very helpful because once he gets older, it will get harder for him.. I am sure of it.

      1. Thank you Shay-lon, I change my identity a little on each social media platform. But Ty Pie is just my first and surname shortened, but you have great content on both your blog & YouTube 😊

      2. Ahh yes, okay! this makes sense. That is quite alright! I don’t mind the whole Ty Pie, I actually like it because it goes together well and rhymes which is helpful as well lol
