My Journey Begins

All my life as far back as I can remember, I have been struggling with my weight, I was a chubby marshmallow baby to begin with and slowly  through years of growing up around scrumptious  Filipino food and an unfortunate slow metabolism rate, I  have ended up in a place that made me feel so body conscious and depressed with my image that it would take me hours to get myself ready and perfect every little thing  I was wearing (including makeup) to make me feel  at least half  decent to even step out of the house. I would also have had to psyche myself up to step out the door quickly before I end up psyching myself out of even going out anymore... you could say I became afraid to go out in public; my anxiety was off the wall. I had struggled through countless yo yo diets and extreme workouts that would always end up to square one once again.. I would feel happy one day and depressed and angry the next. My emotions were everywhere and I felt I could never achieve "the perfect body." 

  I needed an ongoing motivation that would push me to no limits...

My Motivation Angel 


It probably only just hit me around March when NevĂ©ah took her first steps... She's Not a baby anymore but a tiny tot with tantrums (gawd they grow up so fast).. She was an active baby crawling quite early and now taking steps  at 10 months. I knew she was going to be an active child. I thought to myself...

"I need to be there when she runs out onto the street, I need to be there when she runs into the kitchen, I need to be there when she runs around the park. I need to be fit not only to improve my health but also to be there throughout my child's life and teach her the benefits of living a healthy and positive lifestyle."

My journey begins here..... 2014
