Hi all, Happy Monday!
I know I talked a LOT about it last week, but I thought I’d post it here again for anyone who missed it! Christy (@Pnb.Bananas) and I were featured on a segment for KDKA CBS News in Pittsburgh last week.
When Christine from KDKA contacted me, I nearly fainted. Once I recovered, a ton of different emotions began running through my head…How did she find ME? What do I talk about? What will my friends and family think? What will my coworkers think? How many people are going to see me in a bikini?
Turns out Christine started following me because of my Instagram account. In the fall, when I was posting images at the Pitt games and around Point State Park, she realized I was a Pittsburgh Girl! She ended up contacting me through my email and we began chatting about the upcoming segment.
We scheduled the filming to be in the second week of October– literally days after my kitchen remodel was complete. Christine and her camera man and Christy came and we had an awesome afternoon talking, filming, and cooking lunch. I’m so beyond thrilled with how it came out!
I think the message here (that worked for me and so many others) is to take the selfie, put yourself out there, commit your goals to some public forum, and FIND YOUR TRIBE! I have found an incredible group of friends on instagram that support, mentor, motivate and inspire me to keep going every single day. One thing that I’ve learned over the past year, and I will continue to preach, is to take the selfie. 6 Months or a year from now, you won’t regret taking that picture when you’re able to post a side by side and see how much progress you’ve made!
Anyway, if you weren’t able to check out the link in my social media last week, I’ve posted it here!! Let me know in the comments what you think!
