As a professional writer and editor who has dedicated my entire career to helping others achieve their health and fitness goals, I couldn't resist creating a special place where I could share a little bit about where I've come from, where I'm going, and how I can hopefully inspire you to lead a healthier and happier life.
Since graduating from university, my job as a fitness journalist has allowed me to meet many interesting people from around the world. Now I'd like to share my unique experiences and the inside 'fitness' scoop with you! It's true, the fitness industry can be a big scary place if you're unfamiliar with what goes on in the gym, on the stage, or in front of the camera. So I'd like to share my experiences with you as someone who has led some of the top fitness magazines in the world and who is currently overseeing the marketing and communications function for one of the biggest multi-brand companies in the mind-body category. I also want to continue to help others reach their personal aspirations no matter what they are in life. Because if there's one thing I know about for sure — it's trying to balance work and play.
As a mother of two young boys, a busy 9-5er, freelance writer, blogger, yoga-junkie and wife, I could use a little motivation myself sometimes. So feel free to contact me anytime and subscribe to this blog so we can stay in touch. Let me know what you're up to and what you'd like to see here.
Until next time, stay fit!
No matter how much we want to deny it, as we get older, our bodies change. You may find your muscles are not responding to your usual sets and reps anymore, or you’re out of breath a lot faster after cardio workouts, or you don’t have as much get-up-and-go as you used to after long days at the office or playing with the kids. And then you notice the women in the gym are getting younger and younger... Ouch! Well I can relate.
Ever since I entered my thirties (ahem), I’ve had the undeniable urge to re-think my daily physical activity regimen and eating habits as well. Despite the fact that I still feel alright and think I still look alright – it doesn’t mean that my overall health and energy levels are the same as they used to be in my teens or early 20s. So what does this mean? It means the way we look after ourselves has to be updated too.
Let's face it, there’s so much more to life than dwelling on the fact that we’ve gotten another year older, or we don’t have the body we once used to. So raise your head up high and embrace what you have! Yes, things change, but it’s not all downhill from here. You just have to adapt to what life throws at you. Solution? Perhaps you should update your training logbook, or start one! Talk to a personal trainer to find out which exercises and how many pounds you should now be incorporating into your workout, or if you don’t already have one, get a gym membership – or go for a run!
Take a good look at yourself and evaluate where you think you need improvement: physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, or even sexually. Make a list and tackle each one in your time. But never rush. Your results will last longer. Remember, it’s never too late to adjust your lifestyle toward a healthier, happier you.
