Blogging From: Brooklyn, NY

Get fit with Brooklyn Active Mama and find out what it means for this mama to live a healthy lifestyle. As busy as they come with life, work, and kids, Nellie writes about her daily life as a wellness enthusiast. New critiques on dieting and fitness regimes are aplenty, giving readers alternatives to their current work-outs and weight loss plans. Every Friday, Nellie wraps up what she did that week regarding what she ate, how she exercised, and how many reps she completed. Inspirational with pitfalls and high peaks, Nellie is relatable and real, not blindly optimistic or overzealous. If some foods or exercises aren't working for her, she figures out why and makes adjustments. She also blogs regularly about her status on completing a list of goals that she wishes to accomplish before she’s 30 years old, such as becoming a Zumba instructor and attending a health blogger conference.

With a Twitter, tumblr, Instagram, Pinterest, and a Facebook page, she’s easy to pop in on for a quick update. A Brooklyn girl through and through, Nellie offers up some local pride and keeps up-to-date on events for active parents in the area as well as any new attractions. — Leeann Moreau
