Hello and welcome!

I am Benchpressing Baubles, a 26 year old British expat living in Tampa, Florida. I am a fitness fanatic; I love lifting weights, running outside (when Floridian summer permits!) and staying as active as possible. I have an upper 2nd class BA (Hons) degree in Communication and a Post Graduate Certificate in Primary Education (PGCE). I have recently retired from the elementary teaching world and am embarking on a new career in the world of consumer packaged goods.

I haven’t always been into fitness; in fact my love of exercise began when I saw some very unflattering photos of me from a family summer holiday. I never ate ‘unhealthily’ but bought into marketing campaigns which promoted products to help ‘fight flab’. I also have always had an enormous appetite and have now learnt what I need to put into my body to fuel it. My road to eating clean has not been smooth, but I hope on this blog to share my personal experiences around health and fitness as well as reviewing products, recipes and offering an insight into my everyday life too.

I would really appreciate any feedback and please feel free to get into contact with me by emailing me at benchpressingbaubles@gmail.com or view my Instagram here. I really hope you enjoy reading my blog and it gives you some food for thought, some smirks and some inspiration too.
