While in school, I used to be an athlete. I had coaches who helped me become better and better through daily practice and showing me that I can overcome any challenge. I had teammates who would push me to be the best I could be. And I had those athletes with whom I competed against, testing my limits on a weekly basis.
But what happens when high school and college are over and you have no one to challenge you to word hard everyday to be the best, fit you you can be? The coaches are gone, your teammates aren’t there, and there is no competitor waiting for you at the end of week. At this point in our adult lives, we must become all of those things. You must get yourself to your workouts and eating healthy foods, everyday you must be determined to live a healthy life, and you must compete against yourself to be better and better each day, week, month, and year.
No one should want you to be healthy and fit more than you. And Ladies, don’t get confused, fit does NOT mean wearing a size zero. Fit is working hard to get and stay healthy, not only for yourself, but for your little ones and your family. The only person standing in your way is you…so MOVE!
