Everybody has a story.
Hi, my name is Tina Jamison (Chow) aka @fitchickscook on Instagram. I live in the beautiful city of Burlington, Ontario (45 mins outside of Toronto) with my husband Rob, daughter Kate and Vizsla dog Penny. Outside of fitness and healthy eating blogging, I work full time for a bank.
I first started my fitness journey in late 2012 when the physical results weren’t measuring up to the efforts I was putting in at the gym despite endless exercise sessions. After some time spent researching, and conversations with my fitness instructors, it was clear that I needed to focus on nutrition and diet in order to achieve my fitness goals. However, at the time, working full-time along with working towards my MBA presented a few hurdles to this goal, as it was nearly impossible for me to find the time to cook fresh healthy meals on a daily basis. The only possible way was to prep the entire week’s meal ahead of time on the weekend… And this was how @fitchickscook was born!
I started sharing my fitness and wellness journey on my IG page and cataloging my weekly meal prepping. At first, my only goal was to use this page to keep myself accountable. But now almost 4 years later, my followers base has grown to more than one-hundred thousand!
I am truly humbled by this entire experience. I have a passion for fitness and healthy eating because I know that doing so has really helped me change my life for the better. It’s given me more energy, better sleep and just a happier self. I also really want to share this with all of you because I genuinely enjoy helping people.
So thank you for your support and follow. It really does keep me going.
I can’t wait to continue to share my journey with all of you.
