About She’s a Fit Chick

Thanks for visiting She’s a Fit Chick! My name is Jennifer Grayeb. I started blogging back in 1999. I have taken breaks along the years and have had an array of personal blogs before finding my passion for Fitness, Health, and Food blogging in 2010.

ShesaFitChick.com is a blog that helps women of all ages navigate the adventure of becoming fit and staying that way without depriving themselves of a few yummy snacks along the way! Written by a 20-something personal trainer, She’s a Fit Chick offers celebrity workouts, custom workout plans, recipes, and all things healthy!

I started this blog for the sole purpose of getting healthy, but I also decided that being healthy didn’t mean depriving myself from everything I enjoy. I am a strong believer that those “bad” foods can be part of an overall healthy diet, in moderation. I am all about trying to find a healthy balance that does not leave me feeling deprived or depressed.

My life has changed drastically since I started this blog, but being a new mom has taught me that making the time for healthy living is more important than ever because I want to live a long life for my daughter.

About Jennifer

I am 29 years old and currently live in Connecticut with my little family. I am married to the of of my life, we have a crazy rescue dog named Leah, and on New Years day 2014, we were blessed with our daughter Emily.

I’m really inspired by everything you stand for here. I’m just starting my own blog, while trying to become more fit and healthy. Balancing this with a love of baking and cooking is a challenge, but I’m really interesting in succeeding! I will definitely be back for tips and inspiration!

Hi Jennifer, You just followed me on twitter and I followed back. I read your about and cried…it’s so similar to my story that it’s almost freaky. The biggest exception is that I’m twice your age…lol!

I love your site. You don’t have to publish this comment, just wanted to say hi and how happy I am that you are doing great. Gale

I have to say, I’m glad you left a comment on my blog because when I found yours I thought, “Now this is an overall, all-around blogger.” I think people sometimes forget that sometimes we talk about budgeting, relationships, work, and we have the occasional beer. You’re completely right about non-deprivation. I’m right there with ya.

I love what I see so far and can’t wait to keep reading your blog. I’ll add ya to my bloggroll ;)
