I’ve started to write this post several times and then stopped half way through to edit it. You see, a few months ago I was asked to become a Fitfluential Ambassador. What is Fitfluential? Glad you asked (okay I asked).
To say that I am excited about this opportunity is an understatement. I’d say I’m more ECSTATIC, HONORED, and BLESSED to be part of such an amazing family. A family that is encouraging, supportive, selfless, and just plain cool.
Sidenote: I highly recommend you become a member or apply to be ambassador. It’s an opportunity you don’t want to miss out on!
Anyway, back to point here.
One of our December topics in FitFluential is about the fitness journey. Specifically our fitness journey; how we got there, why, when, etc. Then we are to share our 7 tips for anyone just starting on their fitness journey.
I have to tell you, the more I thought about this topic, the more I started to change my mind about how I viewed it. My Fitness journey has become more than just a journey. It’s become a quest, or rather a destination.
A Destination to take LIFE by the hands and LIVE it!
A Destination to appreciate our bodies abilities and God given strengths.
A Destination to recognize that working out, running, etc. is a PRIVELEGE that we must not abuse or neglect!
A Destination to practice patience and accept where we in our fitness.
(bad races, injury, etc.)
A Destination that keeps changing, & therefore allows us to keep GROWING.
A Destination that knows when to lend a helping hand, and when to stand and support.
My Fitness journey may have started years ago, but it is far from over. I’d say I’m right in the middle of this long trek, the terrain is a little rocky, but I’m growing stronger from it each day!
My 7 fitness Tips for those just starting their Journey.
Alright, I think that’s how I meant to word it. Now tell me….
Where are you on your journey?
