We realize that getting and staying fit is sometimes a struggle. Work, family, and just life in general can get in the way and all to often we allow those things to become excuses to give up on ourselves. Once we have stopped a plan or fallen off track, we start to beat up on ourselves. The negative thoughts start to creep in. We call ourselves names that we would not allow others to call us and then the worst thing happens - we start to believe it.
We need to STOP! Stop thinking we are failures, stop putting ourselves last,and stop assuming that because we made one mistake we can never do anything right. We need to start thinking we are great and successful. We need to start putting ourselves first and realizing it will make us better for everyone if we are first good to ourselves. We need to start realizing that one candy bar does not shoot an entire week or month of hard work and good choices.
Having been around fitness communities; we have seen women and men that have spent their entire life as self proclaimed couch potatoes, find a plan that fit with their lifestyle and they transformed into healthy fit people who have gone on to inspire other couch potatoes. We would love to become one of those communities.
We have a few links posted to some really good plans, and some really good articles that will help you build the knowledge to become all you can and possibly inspire others. We offer a forum where you can meet with the friends you know or new friends you meet right here. Studies show that people who have a support system in place are far more successful at maintaining healthful eating and exercise plans.
If you have any questions; please feel free to send them direct via the contact page or post them on the forum and someone will offer up an opinion or point you in the direction of an answer.And remember; no amount of information that you find on the internet is a replacement for a medical professional.
