*DISCLAIMER: I am not a certified personal trainer or nutritionist/dietician, everything I post is from things I have learned or researched.
I am a senior Public Relations major at Texas Tech University and Jesus Christ is the King of my life. When I was younger the game of soccer was something I had a passion for! I was always the athletic type. I had to be good at everything I attempted and that is where my competitive nature came from. After surgeries and no luck with college scholarships, I ventured off into the college lifestyle and I gained the freshman 15–maybe more. I completely stopped working out and my eating habits were horrible. I honestly thought I could never gain weight, until I looked into a mirror, saw pictures of myself and my ex-boyfriend calling me fat. That is all when I started to notice the pounds slowing collecting on my body. My mind soon was consumed with negative thoughts about myself. My confidence was shattered.
I decided make a change in my life August 2011 when I came back from Spain. It was a lot harder than I thought but when I weighed myself at the beginning of October 2011 I was 12 pounds lighter. I changed my eating habits and worked out 6 days a week. However, now I am back to where I began feeling the same way. I’ve learned so much and continue to workout everyday but my eating habits are not how they should be.
Although I do not play soccer anymore, getting back into shape has become a passion in my life. I want to share my wisdom with those who fell off the map and desire to get back to living a healthy lifestyle again while I discipline myself to do the same. Keyword: LIFESTYLE, it’s not a phase.
I don’t know what the Lord has in store for me, but I do know that he wants my mind to be at peace with this. If this is a way I can glorify God, then so be it.
