Meet Claire - my fellow long legged friend who has worked hard to build her killer bod and sticks to her macros better than anyone I know!
To be honest I am not sure when Claire and I became close or how we did. However, I have been following this girl since I started my account and over time we got to know each other and I am so happy we did! I feel like a broken record with these when I say, "We were both doing BBG and met that way." But what can I say? It's a community of like-minded women and you find the ones you click with. For me, I was fortunate enough to have so many girls start BBG around the same time that I did and take the plunge to creating an account to go with it and Claire is no exception.
I have no idea how we got on the topic but we were probably talking about finally meeting. (We only have once *crying face*) And she said that her now fiancé, Stephen, was like, "That kal fit life girl seems like she would be cool in real life." And she agreed and I thought that was so funny and I felt the same about her. Back in June 2016 we had the opportunity to meet for a few hours at the BBG Sweat Tour and it was like we had known each other for years. Don't you just love that? She taught me what the "up and tilt" was when you're taking pictures - try this technique it will change your world! - see photo below as Claire coached I believe it was Chelsea or Macy, "Up and tilt, up and tilt." As we parted ways and talked later that day - it was inevitable, Stephen was right. We both got along and I am happy to say since then we have gotten so much closer.
Claire amazes me. She is a nurse with crazy hours and is also taking blogging very seriously and smashing it! I am also amazed at her ability to track macros. This is when we got a lot closer. When I started tracking I would ask her a ton of questions (thanks for putting up with me :P). She transitioned from BBG to Paola's SSBM Guide, started tracking her macros and hasn't looked back! She's extremely intelligent, helpful, kind, beautiful and hard-working. I love how helpful Claire is on Instagram and Instagram stories. While some people don't take the time to read long captions - I would read hers because there is a lot going on and it's good stuff! Basically she is a mega babe and I am so happy to have met her on this crazy ass journey!
