Fitness is not one size fits all
Too many times we get caught up watching infomercials about some magic pill, shake, or program that will make all of our fitness dreams come true. The problem with that? Health and fitness is not one size fits all. You know that saying, different strokes for different folks? It works that way in the fitness world as well.
For example, my best friend eats 2-3 servings of green veggies, a serving of colorful veggies, and a lean protein at every meal. She lifts heavy 4 times a week and meets with a personal trainer 2-3 times a week as well. Her goal is to get strong and have beautifully sculpted muscles. Me on the other hand, I eat lots of carbs (fruit, bread, and pasta to be exact). I eat every 2-3 hours and I run 4 days a week. My goal: to run a half marathon in September. Our goals are completely different and therefore our eating and fitness regiment should be different as well.
The point of this blog – to offer your different stories of success to show you that there is more than one path to achieve your goal. Maybe you will find a story that inspires you to begin your fitness journey or perhaps you might find a story that motivates you to continue. Either way, these are my friends and I hope you celebrate their successes as much as I do.
