Today marks one-year ago when I embarked on my fitness journey.
It was time. Today, I feel so much better. I have more energy. I look better. I’m not fat anymore. And for a bonus, I’m enjoying fitting into clothes I hadn’t been able to —in decades!
This journey would not be possible without the encouragement and support of my Trainer, Will, @willmurphy53. He was literally with me from day one!
It was a really tough time getting started and staying motivated. Lucky for me, I had him cheering me on daily — in person, through his newsletter, via texting or email, and I persevered. Let’s be clear, I haven’t been “perfect”. I’ve had my share of cheat days! This process has also increased my awareness and understanding of nutrition and health — so I do my darndest to eat smart whenever possible.
I’ve been very open about my journey and I’m happy to chat about how to get started or how to stay motivated. I’ve certainly been inspired by some folks in my real life as well as those I follow on Instagram including @halleberry and @jlo and @stikksmodel. There are certainly other people and resources and apps too - like @Myfitnesspal! And, tons of @lindt dark chocolate for dessert!
Wishing you a fabulous journey wherever you might be on your quest for a stronger, healthier YOU!
P.S. Since I don’t own any sassy workout clothes like some of these women that I work out with, for this momentous occasion, I opted to wear my fabulous @Versace little black dress! I also added some flair with @lauramercier and my favorite perfume #GoodGirl
by @CarolinaHerrera and for sleek hair I used #Chihaircare
by @Farouksystems. And folks... I only recently found out how coconut oil can be used for skin care so I now use my favorite by @Carringtonfarms.
BE WELL! Love and Sunshine, Tina
