Hi! I’m Jackie, a new mom, marathoner, student of dietetics, and lover of all things health, fitness, and living in the sunny state of Florida!
Welcome to my blog!
Fresh Fit Florida follows my adventures in (new) motherhood, running, trying all sorts of fun fitness things, healthy eating, cake devouring, and of course being a tourist where I live.
I started my health journey in 2012 during a time I really need to find myself and work on me. I hit my neighborhood gym’s treadmill and just ran until I couldn’t. Somewhere during this time, I decided to register for the Princess Half Marathon at Disney for 2013. That was back in the day when you didn’t need to register at 12pm on the dot!
I fell in love with running and competing that half marathon was my proudest accomplishment. I even ran a half marathon before ever doing a 5k!
Just before that race, at the end of 2012, I met my now husband, Brian. We moved in together that summer and got our first baby, Macy.
He proposed that fall on a Caribbean cruise and we got married in 2014. We just had our first baby, Reagan, in December of 2016!
I started blogging in 2015 as a way to share healthy recipes, cute workout clothes, my marathon training progress, and to share foods coming from the wonderful state of FL #eatlocal ! I also enjoy writing about anything and everything in between and over my blogging journey have learned you don’t specifically need a niche. I love connecting with others and sharing on their health journeys and swapping advice along the way.
