Fit Girls Guide 28 Day Jumpstart

I did  it! I joined a fitness challenge. it starts tomorrow, October 26, 2015,  and can I tell you that I am sooooo excited! It feels good to be apart of something that is bigger than me, yet involves so many wonderful supportive individuals. The support and encouragement that I have received so far has been amazing. For many of us ladies, joining this challenge and posting before pics is one of the scariest things we have yet to do. Scary but necessary. I never would have thought that I would have the strength to do it, but seeing so many others find the bravery and strength to do so is infectious and inspiring. Not to mention, publicly "outing" yourself adds that extra measure of accountability many of us need. You know that your #fitsisters are going to be checking in on you and following your journey just as you do the same for them. Tomorrow begins a new journey for many of us. I don't believe it will be easy, but it will definitely be well worth it. As I have been saying to my fitsisters for the past couple of days, #WEGOTTHIS!!! That's because we've got each other. I ma grateful to be apart of this fit community! Here's to putting it ALL on the table and watching what we actually put on the table, (see what I just did there?) lol! Happy journey!

Yesterday, you said tomorrow....

Sometimes, I suck at blogging. I hate that I am not as consistent as I would like to be on here, but here goes....I want to lose weight....and keep the weight off.  About two years ago, I accomplished this seemingly daunting task. I did it. I went down to about 128 pounds. That was my pre-motherhood, college body self.....ah then memories, lol! Well two years later and I am at my heaviest. I know mama said there would be days like this, but I never thought I would see myself in a size 12. Before anyone goes in on me for feeling like a 12 is a big size, let's remember that it is all relative to each and every individual. When you have gone most of you life as a size 4/6, being a legitimate size 12 is a bit much. And I'm not even being vain here, I can feel the extra weight that I am carrying around. It doesn't feel good, and it doesn't feel like my body. So, I have yet again committed to becoming a healthier me. The last time that I was able to lose weight, weight loss had not been my primary goal. I wanted to
be healthy, have energy, and feel good! So, I am going to make this pledge to myself. I will live a healthy lifestyle, yet again. For real, for real! I'm 35 years young and I don't want to feel older than what I am. Pray for me y'all!
