I am all about transforming my body into something better. Looking back at my past  four birthdays since the age of 25 my body has transform for the better. I’m not going to say  journey has been easy, but deciding to get healthy and get fit has been a right choice for me. I am not talking about getting skinny because being skinny does not mean being healthy. I am talking about eating right, working out and making lifestyle changes that will only enhance your journey.

My Fitness Journey: Running

Color Run

Let me start by saying a year ago I truly  dislike running. I could not run for a minute straight without stopping to walk. I never saw myself running or even attempting to train myself into running. Now lets fast-forward to last Saturday May 10, 2014 and I took part in my first 5k color run.

The journey leading up to  running 3.1 miles was rough, slow, and mentally challenging at times. I just kept telling myself why I started this journey. I started this journey to change my life. My motivation that keeps me going is to one day becoming a mother. As I stated in my article “Stop the Clock” my endocrine doctor told me I needed to change my life. Losing weight is one of my attempts to know I am doing whatever I need to become a mother.

 

I train to get better, I know the difference between fit and fat is “I.” I am not a perfect runner but I will get better. I started this journey to change and one day run a half marathon. After finishing this 3.1 miles I am more determine to continue training until I can run 13.1 miles.

 

I finish my 5k in 45 minutes. I am proud of myself for not stopping, and not quitting. Now that school is out for the summer my trainer already told me its time  for pain. I can’t wait especially since the pain will be outdoors.

We all want amazing bodies, but we need to understand it’s going to take time to get there. While it might seem hard at first to reach your goal remember it will happen. I constantly look at old pictures as my motivation to keep going. I do not have the perfect body, but I will never return to how I was a year ago. I just have to keep going and remember my body is under construction.

I don’t diet, I eat clean. I have decided to change my lifestyle  that does not make me live on a diet plan or diet program for the rest of my life. Eating right is a lifestyle change. I am not perfect, the last five days I have not been preparing food simply because I had no food in my house. I was eating out more and more. Even though I was working out I was not preparing my food. I love to workout means I need to eat clean as well.

Grill Plantain, no oil needed and they taste so good

Eating healthy is a key factor to weight loss. We all know that 80/20 rule  it goes the same  with fitness as well. 80 percent of the weight loss comes with what you eat. While 20 percent comes from  working out .   I don’t believe anyone needs to be on a diet. I say that because diets are short term satisfaction no one wants to be on a diet for the rest of their lives. Instead I believe in moderation, and the reason most people gain back  weight after weight loss is because they were on a diet plan, meaning they never fully understood how to regulate their own eating habits.  Continue reading “Recipes Edition”
