Follow My Journey

Welcome!

I’ve made a commitment to my health and wellness and my goal is to be in better shape at 50 than I was at 40! There are many steps along the way and it’s about taking one step at a time! I’m here to share with you my ups and downs and to help you along the way too. Although my title is Fit@50, this is really for all ages and we can do things together!

I’ve always been an active person who enjoys the outdoors and nature especially. However, as age (menopause) has set in as well as job responsibilities and complacency, my weight has crept up. More important than how I look though, is how I feel and what’s happening on the inside. My number 1 goal is to be healthy! This summer I made a tried and true commitment to crush my goal.

It began with an AdvoCare 24 day challenge and it was the boost I needed to commit to clean eating, fitness and taking care of myself. I loved it so much I decided to continue and have also begun helping others by becoming a distributor. Here’s where I was after just the 10 day cleanse portion of the challenge!!!

I continued on with the 24 day challenge and beyond and I’m continuing to see great results. Unfortunately, I broke a toe at the end of August and couldn’t wear shoes for 6 weeks. Just this weekend I celebrated being able to put on some sneakers and hit the elliptical at the gym!! Wooohooo!! No stopping me now!

Part of my positive and healthy lifestyle (and part of the challenge guidelines) is clean eating. I make it a point to do my food prep on Sundays so that I have all of my food ready to grab and go during the school week. It makes life so much easier!!

I’ll be blogging about ideas, recipes and helpful tips to make this journey as seamless as possible… and would love for you to come along with me. But for now, I just wanted to say HI!!

I hope you join me… and remember:

Where ever you are, It’s all good!

December 2014:

I am inspired and ready to change lives!! The time is now! I actually had to hunt for a before picture and this one isn’t even at my highest weight but it was taken this summer. There weren’t any others on the camera roll because I deleted them all if I looked too fat. This one was there because I could crop out the belly before posting but here it is untouched for all to see. My results are evident but what you can’t see are the changes on the inside, like how I feel, how much energy I have, cholesterol down 48 points, joint pain and stiffness gone! Not to mention the feeling of gratitude and satisfaction I get by helping others to make positive changes in their lives as well! I can help you be the best you can be! Get ready for 2015 and join me for a #24daychallenge! I’ve got new goals and I know I can achieve them too!
