Katy Widrick on Active Living

Katy Widrick (guest #42) and I first exchanged emails on December 19, 2010 (and I have the original email!).


We had just met each other in person in Tampa, Florida after Jason Keath’s kick ass event, Social Fresh (check out Jason’s new podcast, Social Toolkit).

A lot has changed since then. We both are parents. I’ve had a few jobs. And Katy is now really, truly living her passion.

Katy’s passion: Active Living.

Are you ready to learn more about Katy’s passion for active living?

During this episode …

  • We talked about how we met over 5 years ago at Social Fresh Tampa … and all the lasting connections we made at that event. NETWORKING!
  • We chatted about poop, boobs, diapers, and babies (of course).
  • Katy shared how she was someone who lived actively for most of her life — but also got into bad habits (eating more, exercising less, etc).
  • Katy talked about the “turning point” in her life (her “ah-ha” moment), 7 years ago, when she realized she needed to (once again) live a more active life.
  • Katy shared her 2nd “ah-ha” moment … when she realized it was less about weight and more about health and fitness – building strength, getting more flexible, etc.
  • We connected passion to fitness. Love it!
  • I sang (rapped?) a bit. You may want to fast-forward that part. Ha.
  • Katy advised people to “open their mind” … try new things … put yourself out there!
  • We talked about P90X (Katy has done it 3 times – crazy).
  • We did 10 pushups (with good form, of course) – at the end of the show!
