Hey y'all! I'm Doodleturtle, aka Angie McCord. My mom called me Doodle as a kid and I've always been obsessed with turtles. When the internet became a thing, I wanted anonymity, so I started using the handle Doodleturtle. Of course, I was 16 and it seemed like a good idea at the time! However, it has kind of stuck so I am still going with it. You can also find me on social media as CrossFitAngie.
So who am I? A wife of 20+ years, a mom of 20 years, a middle school teacher for 14 years (retired), and a CrossFit Box Owner of 3 1/2 years, I think I'm pretty smart and funny. And I think that the stuff that runs through my head is so awesome, I have to share. Ok, ok, I'm not really that smart or funny, but I'm probably crazy, and crazy people can be funny, right?
Really, this blog is me sharing the trials, tribulations and accomplishments and random things that come with being a fit 30-something woman. My goal is to let other women know they aren't alone and to motivate them to improve themselves. As moms, wives and employees, we often let other people's needs get ahead of our own. And that's not good! While I'm not advocating women act in a narcissistic, self-serving manner, I do think we need to remember the airplane rule.
Put your oxygen mask on before assisting others with theirs.
