My resolution to run 10 miles a week is already off track! Can you believe that? I sure can. Firstly, it’s still wintery even in Atlanta, and getting outside for a run is often passed over in favor of a indoor workout. Though I’ve become more friendly with the treadmill, we’re still not on good terms.
The holidays were especially challenging when it came to working out. I’m pretty sure my friends at the YMCA think I moved away or don’t exist anymore. I know I can’t be the only one suffering this lack of winter motivation when it comes to staying healthy, exercising regularly, and eating right (cookie dinners, anyone?).
I’ve also had a lot of people asking me for health and fitness advice from everything to transitioning to vegetarianism, integrating yoga into workout regimes, running, and how to plan a workout calendar. I’m definitely no expert (see the disclaimer at the bottom), but I love sharing my experiences and insights as well as encouragement, inspiration, and motivation.
Healthy living is important to me. Though I started later than most (my senior year in college), I’ve been loving fitness and health ever since.
Therefore, I created a Facebook page called Fitness Witnesses. It’s a corny title, I know. But the basis is to create a community of people who can witness and encourage you along in your journey toward health and fitness. Sometimes you just need someone to know how well you’re doing (hence the witness) or someone to say, “It’s ok. Now get back up and try again.”
That’s what I hope this community will become.
So please, Like our page, invite your friends, and join us as we share resources for healthy living and fitness tips.
