Fit Tips

Become Your Best Self!

Just like all of you, I’m human. I have my bad days, sometimes weeks!

I’ll gain weight, fight to lose it, I’ll lean out, get off track, then start a new plan all over again! That’s just life for me in the fitness world!

I won’t give up, I won’t quit on my health and I will prove to myself it can be done and I can reach my goals because I’ve done it so many times before!

Last week at my doctors appointment, I was shocked to realize that I had gained 7 pounds. At my height at 5’0, that’s quite a number! The sympathetic side of me says, ‘It’s okay, it was the holidays not long ago. You did just have a birthday and went out to eat more often.’

Regardless, at the end of the day those are all excuses!

For someone my height it’s recommended that I weigh anywhere from 97lbs-127lbs. First of all, the last time I was 97lbs, I was probably 10!
