Embarking on a Health & Fitness Journey

Hey everyone, Priscilla here.  If you’re new to Girl Meets Soul, welcome! You’ll notice that this is a lifestyle blog featuring mostly hair, fashion and beauty, travel and healthy living.  I’ve been focusing on the healthy living prong of life lately as I’ve recently decided to take back the reigns of my life and embark on a journey to a better, healthier, happier me.

Before I get ahead of myself, let me tell you a little about my journey. Fitness has always been a big part of my life and I grew up playing practically every school sport available to girls, as well as dance (my passion), which continued all the way through college.  After I got married I gained a whopping 30 lbs in 3 months due to birth control. After a lot of trial and error, my doctors found the right balance to my medication so that my weight wasn’t being affected anymore.  However, by this time my overall weight gain reached almost 40 lbs!!!  Ever since then, my weight has been up and down, but never really dipping below that 30 lbs-gained threshold. 😩.  I got discouraged and I lost focus due to all of life’s obligations, particularly work.  My work schedule is unpredictable and I can easily have to work anywhere from 12 – 20 hours a day, so I kept throwing fitness to the back burner.

I finally decided that enough was enough and life is way too short to feel miserable and unhealthy.  I took life into my own hands, no longer let circumstances get in the way of my goals, and I’m excited to announce that I’m beginning a new adventure as a health and fitness coach at Girl Meets Soul Fit Life where I’m dedicated to health, fitness,  self-love, and helping women achieve the lifestyle of their dreams!  😊 I’m hoping to increase my own accountability, change my life, and hopefully inspire others to do the same! 😄

I mean, let’s face it. We all feel imperfect and would like to change something about ourselves–a firmer butt, get killer abs, build stronger muscles or just lose overall weight, but most of us lack the motivation to fully commit to our journey.  However, nothing will ever change if we don’t commit.  Ask yourself, when are you less likely to skip a workout?

A. You have no one to work out with and no one will know (or care) if you don’t do it.
B. You have no one to work out with, but 5 others, who will be completing the same workout, are expecting you to do it.

I would assume most of you would say B because accountability works! You wouldn’t want to be the only one missing the workout.

Consider this: I’m looking for FIVE motivated ladies to join me on this journey as clients.  I have a 30-day challenge called BIKINI BODY BOOT CAMP starting on June 27, 2016 with a small group of people who will all be working out, eating right, and, if you join, expecting you to do the same. Contact me if you’re interested and let’s get on this fit journey together!!

I hope you all enjoy witnessing my fitness journey unfold and hopefully I can help a few of you learn to love yourselves and find your fit along the way♡♡♡. If you have fitness goals, and you’d love the help of a virtual fit friend email me or send me a message so we can chat goals!

In the mean time, follow Girl Meets Soul Fit Life on Facebook and Instagram @GirlMeetsSoulFitLife! 😊

With Love and Soul,
