I have really struggled with writing this first post. On one hand, I am so eager to learn and to share what I’ve learned. But, on the other, I feel so inadequate to take this fitness blog on. As I’ve started researching fitness blogs/videos/etc, I’ve seen so many success stories. Fit moms,100+ lbs lost, personal trainers that help people on a daily basis…. Then there’s me. I work at a bank, struggle with my diet on the daily and have only lost 16 lbs. On paper, there’s absolutely no reason anyone should listen to anything I have to say. What if everyone laughs at me or ignores me completely? Who am I to write a blog on fitness?!? I have never done anything like this in my life, so this is very much out of my comfort zone. I am lucky enough to have a man that supports me. V believes in me more than I believe in myself most days. If he knows I can do it, then who am I to doubt myself? He told me when this all started that I would inspire people. I laughed at the thought of anyone being inspired by me! But, when I took my progress pics in March, I got SO much positive feedback and tons of questions about what I was doing. That is when I realized that V was right. I might not be Michelle Lewin or have a soccer mom’s schedule, but I have my own obstacles to overcome. And, THAT is what really inspires people! If I can help just one person with this blog, then it will all be worth it! I’m not going to sit here and act like I know everything about fitness and healthy living. I’m definitely new to all of this. But, I am motivated and eager to learn. I would love to have you on this journey with me! Follow me and we can grow together!
