just have fun with it! 


I just want to be healthy and fit! I've been a pretty active person my whole life. I honestly believe that fitness and being healthy is a LIFESTYLE. When people ask me questions...I'm honest...It's not a fad or something that happens over night. It is a lifestyle with daily choices...and your diet is a big part of that.

Some Strengths:
- I normally eat a pretty healthy diet throughout the week. Meaning no sodium, lean meats and plenty of veggies. I ACTUALLY EAT 5 TIMES A DAY!! that my only strength? yikes!

Some Challenges/Weaknesses:
- I have a HUMONGOUS sweet tooth. I try to save my sweets for the weekends but that doesn't always happen!

- I DON'T drink enough water! I know this is huge and a big NO NO. This is definitely something I need to work on. How do you guys get enough water in through out the day? I just get so busy and forget!

- Getting up at 4:30 in the morning DOES NOT agree with me lol. Half the time I am barely awake so I feel like I didn't get anything out of my workout. But at least I went right?!?!

- To make it to the gym at least 3 to 4 times per week!
- Drink at least 8 oz of water every day!

I don't want to be super skinny or anything like that.
I just want to be healthy and toned!!

  1. OMG!!! I am obsessed with that last quote. This really sticks! I am so guilty of comparing myself to others and I have to remind myself that my body type is different, and I should be proud of me and what I have accomplished!


  2. Wow you inspire me. But I'm just still so lazy! I need to get back to consistently working out!

  3. I work at a coffee shop right now and all day I just drink hot water with lemon. It keeps me from the lattes and I end up drinking like six glasses of water without even thinking about it.

  4. LOVE this link up! Can't wait to join in with y'all next Monday! :) YAY! I need some major motivation and this could be the way to do it!


  5. Love the link up and your great quotes. I am totally with you about not drinking alot of water. The funny thing is, when I DO I feel SOOO MUCH better and can tell when I don't. I am back on the water bandwagon thanks to the link up!



I love to hear whats on your mind! I read every comment and it makes my day!!
