About Me

Getting Fit One Day at a Time, that's me!

A little about myself.

I am 39 and on the path to fitness,  making the changes in my life that allow me to finally take control of the one area that seems to be always out of my control, my weight and fitness level.

A little over 5 years ago I finally was able to take back a huge part of my life by quitting smoking.  It was one of the hardest things I have ever done.  I was a 2 pack a day smoker and had smoked for almost 15 years.  I had tried to quit 100 times before, to some people they probably thought it was going to be the same as the others.  But it wasn't.  No quit smoke aids, just cold turkey and I did it.  What was different? I am still not really sure.  I knew in one of my weakest points in the first week, when I was alone in my bedroom really wanting a cigarette, crying because it was so hard to stay strong, I did think to myself..."if I cave and have that cigarette I will just have to go through this all over again" and that I did not want to do.  I knew if I failed I was going to try to quit again because I didn't want to be a smoker.  But this time it was different, I didn't want to go through it all again, I was done making excuses for myself that allowed me to have another cigarette and just "try" and quit smoking on another day.

We have all had those challenges and struggles in our life.  Maybe it is breaking the soda habit or the nightly snack attack.  Whatever your struggle is we can conquer that together!  NEVER give up.  It doesn't matter if you fall 8 times as long as you get up 9!
