One thing that I have learned on this amazing journey of Fat to Fit
is that life is about choices.
You can choose to change your life for the better
you can choose to sit around and do nothing about it
I am generally an upbeat & happy person, I tend to have a very open heart and try to give the benefit of the doubt to people. However, the is one thing I don't have any patience for-
that is excuses
So-what does this have to do with anything??
Let's back up:
Several weeks ago, I was lucky enough to win a super fabulous giveaway from The Athletarian
(go, check out her blog) from Fashletics
. The tank top that I won was awesome-super cute AND super soft!!
|The GORGEOUS Athletarian in her tank from Fashletics!|
I was pretty excited about the win and spent some time hanging out around the Fashletics website. Having recently started CrossFit'ting, I was super intrigued by Sarah, the owner and creator of Fashletics.
I liked the message that her line conveyed and she has got to be a NO EXCUSES
kind of girl.
Fashletics is a collection of handmade jewelry inspired by a passion for fitness, competition, and a strong desire to empower others who have made a commitment to a fit and healthy lifestyle. Each piece of jewelry serves a badge of honor and an expression of strength.
Fashletics is based in Miami, FL. All pieces are designed and created by Sarah Wilson who is a certified CrossFit trainer at South Florida CrossFit Endurance. Sarah is also a nationally ranked endurance athlete who competes for Team USA at the World level in the sport of Duathlon. One of the only things that rivals her interest in athletics is her strong desire to design and create. Sarah is an established jewelry designer and has been working as a metalsmith for nearly 10 years.
Ultimately, Fashletics is the result of the combination of two distinct interests. Sarah is as much an athlete as she is an artist. She takes pride in the craftsmanship of her designs and works hard create jewelry pieces that celebrate and inspire the athlete within.

I was also equally impressed by some of the inspirational jewelry items available, like:
- BELIEVE was "my word" for 2011
- I just love the YOU vs YOU (perfect for you Ange!)
- That kettlebell is bronze!
I got to chat with Sarah via email about a review for the Miles, Muscles & Mommyhood
She was more than happy to participate, LUCKY US
Sarah sent me the kettlebell and tag necklace that read "weakness is a choice"
The kettlebell is hand carved and cast in pewter and the accompanying charm is pewter as well. The 16" bead necklace is stainless steel.
The necklace is sturdy as are the charms. That kettlebell is heavy duty!!
It is a lovely piece that reminds me that I have a choice with each workout-
I can choose to be strong or I can choose to weak.
I am sure you know what I CHOOSE to be.
I have been wearing this necklace for about a week now and it's very comfy and Lola proof. She has not managed to break this one and I have a feeling it'll take her a while too.
As for the tank I won? I love it. It's soft, lightweight and very comfortable. Of course, it's cute and easy to wash!
I am very pleased with the items from Fashletics
and I know I can take care of some of my Holiday gift shopping right with them!
Now for the exciting part-how do you get a chance to win your very own Fashletics $25.00 Gift Certificate
