Hi There!

Hi friends. Thank you so much for visiting my site. I rarely have time to publish full blog posts anymore, but please join me on Instagram (user name: aStoryofCorrie). I love micro-blogging and you can find all my newest fitness & health material over there.

Interview on IIFYM with Athlete Kyra Williams

Hi everyone! I haven’t had much time to blog here, but I’m moonlighting around on a few other fitness sites!

I was recently interviewed about my experience with flexible dieting (a.k.a. IIFYM, or If It Fits Your Macros) for my friends over at Kyra Williams Fitness. I’ve had great results tracking my macros, and I talk about it often on my Instagram. I’ll keep writing about this, but check out the story with Kyra – here it is!

Hi everyone! It’s great to be here! I’m Corrie, moonlighting as a fitness enthusiast and model when I’m not at my full time marketing job. I love everything fitness, health, & yoga related. I occasionally compete in shows, and used to coach clients at a personal training gym, but what I really prefer is living a balanced lifestyle year-round.

Describe “If It Fits Your Macros”. Define it, elaborate on what that means in the most simple terms.

If It Fits Your Macros (or flexible dieting) is simply a more detailed way of calorie counting. Instead of just tracking your total calories, you track each and every macronutrient.

Macronutrients (macros) include protein, carbs, fats. A lot of people say IIFYM is a fad because it’s received a lot of publicity lately in the fitness world, but it’s really nothing new…

Sky’s out, Thighs Out

Hi! Long time no blog post. I think I blacked out for the majority of March and April.

This spring has been the busiest. I got promoted at my current job and it’s been interesting adjusting to the increased work load at the very height of our event season. It’s going well, though… although my most favorite boss ever did resign last week and I miss her terribly! Such is the nonprofit life, I suppose. #struggle

In other news, my best friend got married and I was lucky enough to be her maid of honor.

I’d like to think i nailed the maid-of-honor toast, but I’m pretty sure I blacked out during that, too.

The wedding was fabulous. Groomsmen were crying at least twice as hard as the bridesmaids. It was LEGIT. I did some weird inversions on the dance floor at the after party, so mainly just another night.

In Corritron world, I decided NOT to compete in the April Fitness America show. I kept hearing it would be canceled, then all the work shenanigans happened, and I decided to eliminate as many other stressors where I could. Competition prep was just one of those things.

I feel ok about it. I don’t really like doing physique competitions all that much – but I do like having something to work towards. I don’t know what’s next for me as far as competing, but I’ve been posting more about that on my Instagram.

I’m still working with my coach and i can honestly say I’m in the best shape of my life and the strongest I have ever been. I think this is pretty much what I would have looked like for my show other than a couple pounds.
