Operation Skinny Jeans: Ah, the internet

Ah, the internet

Fun story. As you probably know, I was featured on the local news last week. (yes I am still working on getting a video of it. If I don't have one by the end of the week, I will legitimately record it on my phone from my tv). Some fun things have happened because of that.

1. I got a few new Facebook followers. Welcome!

2. I realized how big of a twitter deadbeat I am, and I am working on fixing that. Thanks guys!

3. I met Jenny.

"Who is Jenny?"  you are probably asking. Jenny is my new bff. She messaged me on Facebook after seeing my story on the news while at the gym. She is a nutritionist and in school to become a personal trainer, and I love her. We met last night at a Starbucks (did I mention she lives like 15 minutes from me) and we totally hit it off! She gave me nutrition counseling and we just talked like old girl friends which was great. She said something funny that I totally agree with. When she saw my story, she just knew she had to reach out to me, and when I got her message, I felt the same thing. I had no qualms about meeting a complete stranger that I met on the internet at a Starbucks because I just knew she want going to try to kill me :D

Anyhoo, sometimes the internet is this beautiful thing. I am a very social person in real life, but some of the most meaningful relationships I have built have been on the internet. I can't wait to get to pick Jenny's brain and see where this new friendship takes us. And I want to let you all know that if you have ever thought "gosh, I really want to email Jess but I don't want to bug her!" or "I live in Colorado too and I think it would be awesome to get coffee sometime" EMAIL ME!  Or Facebook me or whatever! I would love to meet you, talk to you, run a mud run with you in just over a month! Anything, all the things, seriously. You all inspire me every day, so I love to hear from you :D
