Welcome YAY! This is my first post and I couldn’t be more excited about it—I’m looking at this as a little adventure; I’m creating this blog in hopes that it will encourage me to maintain the healthy lifestyle I’m striving for. Of course as I continue to chronicle my experiences, I hope to connect with others as well as give and receive advice along the way.
A little bit about me—I’m 23 years old and I live in San Diego–I go to school full time (mostly online) as well as work full time, so it can be quite the task to include exercise and a nutritious diet into my schedule.
These past 5 years have been pure craziness. Losing my mom to cancer was not quite easy for me—I had just started college and not quite knowing how to deal with the loss; I took a few years off of school and indulged in a not so healthy lifestyle full of fast food, laziness and cigarettes. Slowly but surely I’m starting to get my life back together—I know that my mom would have wanted it and I of course do too. SO this past year I dropped 15 pounds, I QUIT smoking, started working out and I’m ready to be the healthiest that I can possibly be! Unfortunately I don’t really know what it truly takes to accomplish these goals in a way that’s conducive to my busy schedule. This is going to be quite the journey that I am SO ready for!
For the past year I’ve been exercising in my living room, in front of the TV to Exercise TV OnDemand! I’ve loved every second of it and will continue to do my Jillian workouts…I’m obsessed! 🙂 BUT I officially joined the Gym a few days ago and I’m so excited about everything it has to offer! Tonight at 6:30 I’ll be meeting with a trainer so she can show me around a bit, right now I just have no clue how to work anything in there and have been sticking to the Eliptical. Hopefully all goes well and I can start going with some kind of routine to follow and look forward to!
And this is me!
