Hello World! My name is Agnes and I am That Chick in the Mirror!
That Chick in the Mirror is a lifestyle blog that covers many topics. The most popular topics are family, weight loss and fitness, finances, and occasionally teaching topics. This blog came about from years of feeling insufficient as a person and unsatisfied with who I was. I am extremely blessed in this life, and I strongly believe that people are capable of changing all of the things that they are not satisfied with. This blog is to remind me of my many blessings, and also to chronicle the changes that I am putting in place. Below is a bit of background on me.
I have been married for 12.5 years and have 3 children, and am also the youngest of 6 children. I have a very close relationship with my siblings and my father. My family is the motivation behind everything that I do. All of them are such amazing people that encourage me to push forward and try new things.
Teaching is something that I have always wanted to do, although I did not start pursuing it until I was almost 30 years old! I graduated with a Master of Arts in Teaching degree in 2011, and have now been teaching for 4.5 years. I was nominated Teacher of the Year for the 2016-2017 school year, and I found my purpose when I began teaching. Hopefully the passion that I feel for my career comes through in my posts and inspires you to find your purpose as well.
Weight Loss and Fitness
For a good portion of my life, I have struggled with weight issues. I was one of those people who was ALWAYS on a diet. I would have small successes here and there, but many of the diets were so restrictive that I would crash and burn before long. I finally found the secret to maintain my weight and my lifestyle- without dieting! In this section, I will chronicle my journey with Intermittent Fasting (IF), and also fitness.
There are so many opportunities in this life, but we have to open our minds and work to shape our futures! Look at the world around you-so many people have made their lives into exactly what they want them to be. These people should be our inspiration to do the same!
