Hi Everyone! I am Jocelyn. Welcome to Frosting & Fitness! I have a passion for food and fitness. I enjoy baking and working on my cooking skills. Oh…. and EATING, ALOT! Chocolate is at the top of my list and somehow always on mind. But usually anything sweet and sugary gets my attention. I am fairly sure I have one of the biggest sweet tooth’s that exist.
Growing up playing soccer, softball and basketball- I NEVER enjoyed the running part of the game. Once I started and set a goal of completing my first St Paddy’s Day 10K, it became addicting and I really enjoy it now! Within the past couple of years, I ran my first few races- which include various 5Ks, a St. Paddy’s Day 10K and my first Half Marathon this past October. My goal is to complete my first marathon, hopefully by the end of this year.
I still enjoy playing soccer and currently play on a Coed indoor soccer league during the fall/winter and a Women’s team that plays in the summer. I run on the treadmill but only because I am not a huge fan of cold weather running. However like most runners, I will take outdoors running over running the treadmill any day! The treadmill gets boring so quickly.
I also started taking working out at the gym more seriously over the past couple of years. I never realized how completely wrong I was lifting where I was either going to hurt myself, or I was doing it in a way that it was just ineffective. My boyfriend trains 5-6 days a week and competes in powerlifting. His expertise has helped a ton!
I follow a few blogs, some fitness Instagram accounts, various websites etc to get new ideas on how to at the least incorporate healthy ingredients, or add more protein to them (substituting greek yogurt in various recipes for sour cream for example, adding protein powder, etc).
I am not the cleanest eater, nor claim to be BUT I’m working on it! I am working on finding the right balance of good for you food without depriving myself of the things I love. My goal is to share healthier versions of recipes, but that doesn’t mean you won’t see the occasional good o’l fashioned cupcake posted :). I mean come on…a girl has got to have her frosting and sprinkles!
Thank you again for supporting me and following my blog. I am very happy and excited to share my passions with you!
