A Journey Underway

My health and fitness journey began a few months ago.  As I began dropping “baby weight” my determination continued to grow.  I was doing a specific diet or anything like that.  I began learning what is truly healthy and what isn't.  But instead of leaving it at not healthy, I began to research and learn why these things weren't healthy!

About 2 months ago I began a new part of my journey which was a Team Beachbody Challenge with a good friend of mine and an amazing an inspiring coach who was once where I was in many ways!  In the first two weeks of this challenge I lost 4 ½ inches from my waist, hips and bust.  That set me on fire! You see my “baby” was 2 ½ years old when I started this journey.  And I call it baby weight, but I know it wasn't that at all.  I had fallen into bad habits both in fitness and nutrition.

I've made a huge amount of progress and I will continue to do that each day for the rest of my life.  I am not on a diet!  And I will tell you why in a future post.  In the mean time, I just wanted to put this out there.  I am almost in single digits left of my weight loss goal.  But I think my current goal was modest and look at it now as a stepping stone.  I have new goals and new views!  I am excited by what the future holds and I will be sharing with all of you from time to time. 

I have a new lifestyle.  I have a new lease on life with more energy than I remember having in quite some time!  Well honestly it’s the most energy I've had in probably five going on six years!  That is saying something! I will be sharing more in future posts.  I am now a coach, and I love that I am helping others overcome what I have.  I am learning with and from each person I meet!
