Welcome to BRICKK Thoughts, Tips & Tools for a Healthy Lifestyle! This is a new section on our website...I have been debating on adding it for awhile...basically since I created our website a few years ago...and now I'm finally doing it.... I am a bit nervous...because let's face it anything new can be a bit nerve-racking. Along with the nerves, I'm also excited to be sharing BRICKKtips, some of my thoughts (and possibly some of Kathy's thoughts from time to time- she is the founder and owner of BRICKK, and THE reason I am able to bring this information to you!) and also tools that I find helpful on a healthy lifestyle journey.
Who am I? My name is Sara Krebs- I am the marketing coordinator at BRICKK, I see weight management clients, I occasionally work in the kitchen at the Smoothie Lounge. If you take a peek at our Weight Management page you can learn a bit more about me and my views on a healthy lifestyle.
A few more things about me...
-I love to make things...anything from crocheted hats to a coffee table...I like to keep busy doing "crafty things."
-I love to exercise - I'm a certified group fitness instructor, but also love to hop on an elliptical, bike, or treadmill, use free weights, or go for a hike, rollerblading or bike ride to get in a workout.
-I love to cook! Since the weather is getting colder I am excited to start making soups again...soup is my FAVORITE thing to make in the fall and winter months.
-I love to spend time with my family outside...one of my favorite places to be in the summer is in my garden teaching my kiddos how to grow FRESH FOOD!
-I developed and implemented a Weight Management Program at a health system and worked as a coordinator of that program for several years. I learned SO MUCH from making this program and meeting with my patients...I want to keep sharing this knowledge. I am SO very grateful to be a part of BRICKK where I have the freedom and ability to do just that!
We introduced BRICKKtips this weekend on facebook and instagram! BRICKKtips will be one item that we will include on this blog- we hope that you enjoy the first one and come back to see additional BRICKKtips soon!
