I am a tad bit obsessed with food, fashion, décor, party planning, travel, coffee, and, WINE! Okay, and maybe the occasional Grey Goose martini with a twist too 😉
Having been in the health and wellness profession for most, okay all, of my career, I wanted to share my passion for other interests & hobbies outside of my “squats, lunges, push-ups, and educating on how to live a moderate lifestyle” claim to fame.
I wanted to showcase the side of me – my “good side” of course - that LOVES trying out new restaurants & recipes, keeping my closet & beauty regime up-to-date with the latest and greatest finds (well, at least I think so), party planning like a (girl) boss, traveling to the West Coast and beyond, drinking what most people would consider to be way too much coffee & wine on a weekly basis, and just living a life that is Fit4Janine.
Hence, my blog was born!
And, by the way, you will come to find out that I have champagne taste on an IPA beer budget. That’s funny, right?
Yes, I could drive a much more economical car, and have a few extra dollars in my wallet if I didn’t visit Starbucks most days of the week or have Nordstrom bookmarked in my web browser, but that is, definitely, not me, and I will continue to work my ass off to enjoy the things I want in life!
Zero apologies here!
For the record, I do know how to tighten my belt when needed, and I, absolutely, do buy items on sale – because who doesn’t love a good sale – but my motto? Life is way too short to not live in the moment, enjoy what you have worked so hard for, and have super cute shoes too!
And I will be the first to admit that I have no business giving financial advice! Ha!
While my life is on social media, you will come to find out that I am pretty shy in front of the camera. Just Kidding! I LOVE IT! Speaking of which, have you check out my VLOGS yet?”
I may drop a little too much profanity at times but that is not going to change anytime soon.
Being late is one of my biggest pet peeves, and I am a “work in progress” anti-perfectionist. Yeah, that is not going so well.
I can create one AMAZING Cheese & Charctuerie board, and I know how to entertain like a GIRL BOSS.
Over the course of 10 years, I ran 3 Marathons, 10+ Half Marathons, and a handful of 10-Milers, Team Relay’s, 5K’s, etc. Couple that training with teaching 10+ group fitness classes each week and, needless to say, I was in the worst shape of my life.
People think I am a hard read, although I don’t know what that is supposed to mean. I like to think I keep people guessing. I mean, who wants to be predictable? Oh, and I don’t really think this is a “fun fact,” but it seemed appropriate.
Definitely digging my in heels with this whole “online dating” thing. Dear Future Husband, just fall into my lap!
While I like all genre of music – with the exception of country – rap music will always be my go to! Oh, and I kind of have a thing for EDM, specifically, all the GIRL TALK compilations!

"A lifestyle is what you pay for; a life is what pays YOU!"
“I always thought that the “thriving” would come when everything was perfect, and what I learned is that it’s actually down in the mess that things get good.”
“Maybe the best we can do is not quit, play the hand we have been given, and accessorize the outfit we’ve got.”
“Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we’ll ever do.”
“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”
