Who am I???
My name is Christine & I am a late 4o something year old Native Brooklyn, New Yorker turned South Floridian! I am a Full Time Wife , Mother of a Teenage boy and Employee just trying to “find my fit” in this crazy, ever evolving world of mine! I love working out, participating in Mud Runs and laughing! Being a Mom is amazing, but as he grows and becomes more independent, so must I….
Taking charge of my Health and Fitness has not only changed me physically, but mentally as well. Finding what works for me – not the star on the magazine cover, not the 20 something year old standing online in front of me – has been an eye opening, fabulous learning experience. I don’t strive for perfection, there is no such thing. I don’t compete with anyone but myself to be better than I was yesterday. I don’t beat myself up for enjoying a “cheat meal” or missing a workout – LIFE happens and sometimes gets in the way… I have learned to forgive myself these errors and embrace my successes, to look behind at how far I’ve come and not always focus on how far I have to go….
What do I hope to achieve with this blog?
I am an average woman on a budget! Changing your eating habits doesn’t have to be overwhelming or break the bank. I want to share what I have learned along this journey and hopefully help others “find their fit” along the way. I will be sharing recipes, tips that have helped me, sales & bargains I find along the way (and the stores I find them), along with my workouts and funny life stories. Let’s face it, sometimes you just HAVE to laugh at Life! I look forward to your feedback and hope you enjoy this work in progress as much as I am!!!
