My Fitness Story

September 19, 2013

This is not a fitness or nutrition blog. I am not an expert or even have advanced knowledge of fitness/nutrition but I have his a significant milestone in my fitness journey and wanted to share.

This was me a year ago on my birthday.


This was me last week on my birthday.


I have lost 22 lbs and am counting. I have done this for health reasons because I am choosing to be healthier and more active I have accomplished this. I started in May using a fitbit to track my physical activity and food consumption. Soon on my list is to start running (once i get running shoes). And I want to continue doing yoga in the evenings. It is very relaxing for me and helps my muscles release all the tension.

I am about 15 pounds away from my goal and feel better about myself and feel better in general since undertaking a better health plan.

    Kudos to you in making efforts towards living a healthier life! My blog deals a lot with fitness and nutrition. Hop on over for a visit:

    You look much healthier now than you did a year ago, but have always had a nice smile 🙂
    Being in good shape allows you to enjoy life more, don’t you agree? I am about 21 pounds away from my fitness goal. In May I started out at 266 lbs and now I am at 221 lbs. I want to get back down to 200 lbs. I wish you well on your health and fitness journey.
