yay fitness!

My name is Yvette, I just graduated college this year, and am personal training and instructing fitness classes to help me stay accountable and consistent with trying to reach my own goals, as well as helping others in theirs :) i love martial arts and being active, but because of my weight I always felt uncomfortable participating because it seemed like it was a prerequisite to be fit.

I finally overcame my apprehension, found some martial arts classes i could join, and after a while of those & going to the gym steadily, then developing better eating habits, i feel so much better about myself and my health and fitness. Im currently trying to lose my last 15-20 lbs which has been yo yo-ing up and down for like a year now.... super pain in the butt.

Hey, thank you very much for your comment! I am going to be modest and say that I haven't really accomplished a great deal simply because I have only really been on the fitness bug for a little over a month steady. I will get that true sense of gratification and accomplishment once I have been at it for upwards of a year. I see fitness as a drug, it takes a period of time to really get hooked on it. The way I see it, I think 3 months is the cutoff. If you can go three months steady, then you're hooked!

It looks like - just by reading your intro - that you are well on your way. You establish accountability, but you also show that you are resilient despite what you perceive to be challenges. Even though I don't know you, I am still proud of you for achieving what you have in the martial arts realm. That is something I was never able to get into myself! I have every bit of confidence that you will achieve your goals and then some. Heck, if you need someone to help you keep up in your pace, I am only an email away. Don't worry, I'll be sure to give you the verbal kick in the rear to get you back in the right direction; I don't believe in giving people shoulders to cry on! Stay motivated and no matter what...KEEP DIGGING DEEP!!!
