My journey to fitness part 2! Where do I start?

Its been 8 weeks tonight since I had my baby boy. I’ve been cleared by my doc and I’m ready to run! I’ve been upping my workouts and intensity slowly, but now I am ready! Now where do I start? As a fitness coach I am asked this question A LOT and being on this side of the journey (again) I know EXACTLY how it feels!
Where do I begin? How can I do this? CAN I do this? Is it possible?! questioning myself and double thinking my ability to meet my goals is normal, its human-BUT- its what you do from here that counts! I will not let it stop me! So back to the question- where do I start?!
To answer this I will reflect on the last time I started my journey, before becoming pregnant with Ezekiel I had logged in a 75lb loss and I started that journey horribly! I spent countless hours working out, was at the gym daily, was pushing myself more then ever before- but was getting zero results! Because my nutrition was what needed adjusting. Its easy to sweat, we all know how to workout- but we don’t know how to eat, or should I say- how to eat CLEAN! So I will be spending the next month focusing on clean eating and I have a goal of reducing my weight by 15lbs! yes! My goal is drop 15lbs in a month-impossible? we’ll see! Will you join me? I’d like to have you on this journey with me! I will be hosting an Eat Clean & Get Lean challenge- you want in? please post here & like my page on Facebook www.facebook.com/fatmomtofitmom

Introducing the newest amendment to my “why?”

As I’ve posted before without a why- you have no drive, no purpose. It’s the gas that fuels us, inspires us, motivates us. Your why can shift, grow & change as you do, but you need one to get somewhere.
My why began on march 8th, 2008 with the birth of my daughter- Isabella. Her coming into the world threw me into an unexpected journey to health & fitness that has now become my full-time career. Never would have I imagined being blessed enough to work from home- but here I am. And now I am pleased to introduce to you the newest amendment to MY why: Ezekiel: born on Saturday, august 27th at 12:10am. 8lbs 2oz & 19.5″ of pure baby boy! I’m blessed beyond belief & excited for how my life is changing!
Please continue to come check out my fitness blog as I continue my journey of reaching my goals and helping others reach their’s!
