Fitness Update

It should be no surprise to any of you, that I talk about fitness a lot. It is by far one of my favorite topics to blog about. It is my passion in life and possibly one day I will have a career in fitness,  we will see. Growing up as an overweight kid, really did open my eyes to the importance of health and fitness. Not only to look better but also to feel better about myself and to have confidence in my abilities.

Sometimes, it is hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that I can't run as far, lift as much or look as good as other people. I just need to keep in mind that its MY body and MY life and I should be proud of my improvements. In June, when I first started running,  I couldn't even run half a mile without stopping and now I can run 2-3 miles without stopping. I lift 8-10 pound weights now compared to 5 pound  weights. I have consistently worked out at least 4+ days since July. I have turned down junk food on many occasions ( cake, donuts, etc) even when I really wanted them. Tonight for example, I only ate half the food on my plate for supper since I recognized I was full and then I put on my workout clothes and did a kettlebell and ab circuit while watching t.v. Small choices= big changes!

These are all huge accomplishments for me. Things I deserve to be proud of. I am excited to keep pushing myself to new levels and possibly trying out a race (half marathon) some day in the future.

I feel a lot better lately. I have more energy, more confidence, less anger and a more toned and fit body. I am strong and proud of myself for finally sticking to it. My health is extremely important to me, so even when I don't have time to work out or eat healthy, I will make time. My health is a priority. I AM A PRIORITY!


  1. LOVE this!! When I first started running, I couldn't run more than 90 seconds without thinking I was going to die! Now, I've run a 5K several times. I'm always thinking, what's next?! It's exciting to see all of the things our bodies are capable of.

  2. So glad you liked it! I totally agree. Its exciting to see positive change in your body and abilities. There is always something else to work towards. Good luck in your fitness journey & happy Tuesday! :)


I really do love hearing from you. Thank you for taking the time to comment! I will respond to each comment as soon as I can :)
