I started my journey to living a healthier, happier lifestyle almost over a decade ago. I had been making some wrong choices in my life and ended up in a place where I lacked confidence, was unhappy with myself, and was lost without a purpose. I spent most of the weekends drinking and partying, and then feeling awful by Sunday. I would then do it over and over again every weekend.
With the drinking and partying came a bad attitude, anger, and mindset about life. I was not my true self and I was not living the life I knew I could.
Until the day I had had my moment. The day I had had enough of the negative mindset and bad attitude. This was the day, and it was the day everyday since then. The day I woke up, I mean really woke up, and just decided I was GOING to change my life. I didn’t say MAYBE, I didn’t say TRY, this was going to happen for me.
By thinking with this mindset, I made it impossible to fail at what I set out to do because I knew that my life had purpose, and it was up to me to make that happen.
I knew that to be happy and confident I needed to love myself, and much of my self loathing was physical. So I started small and began biking to the free gym at the university I was attending. I researched healthy foods and educated myself on nutrition and health since things were not easily accessible in regards to health and wellness.
Throughout all of this, it was extremely challenging to find my fit. Because of my experience, I wanted to be sure to create a space for others to feel empowered through education and the knowledge that I have accumulated over the years. If you are here, I hope you find that you belong, and have found your fit.
