First, let me introduce myself and why I decided to start a blog!
You could say I have lived in a gym my entire life. So when it comes to fitness, it is ingrained in me. I grew up in Idaho in a gym my parents owned and have always loved sports and learning about the human body.
Because of my passion for learning about how our bodies work, I decided to pursue a B.S. in Biology at Northwest Nazarene University. Throughout my four years at university, I also competed as a hammer thrower for the track team. I loved it! Unfortunately, I got injured during my freshman year and was injured for the rest of my college career. My hopes and dreams of moving on with hammer throw after college were no longer, and I didn’t know how to handle it. No matter what my potential might have been starting out, it was no longer significant.
I don’t know about you guys, but I always thought I was created for something great. My injury couldn’t be all I was destined for! I didn’t want my plans to change; how would I impact the world? How was I going to leave my mark? How was I going to inspire women?
It was at this point that I realized how insecure and insignificant I felt. I was constantly comparing myself to others, and nothing I did could help me come out of this low place. I was stuck in a deep hole, empty of confidence, self-worth, and love for myself.
There came the point when I decided I had enough of it, and I didn’t want to let those feelings of worthlessness take over my thoughts any longer. My journey to becoming my “best self” started when I decided to shift my mindset.
Once I figured out how to build myself up rather than tear myself down, that’s when everything fell into place for me. I finally found out how I could empower women!
I want to help other women do the same for themselves what I was able to do! Deciding to live in a “health-conscious” way is just the first step to your greatness. I’m here to guide you through your journey to living out your fruitful and non-toxic life!
Never hesitate to reach out to me for questions or advice!
And always remember,
You are WORTHY. You are LOVED. You are BEAUTIFUL. Don’t let anyone tell you differently.
