Hi! Thanks for joining me. My name is Kelly, I am new to blogging but I am not new to Health & Fitness so I have finally decided to follow a dream I have had for quite some time now and start FitM.U.M(My.Ultimate.Motivation).
What is My Ultimate Motivation?? For me it is to be a healthy, happy and positive role model and inspiration to my 2 girls and be the best version of myself I can be. Fitness is not an individual thing for me anymore. I want my daughters to grow up knowing that being healthy, fit and active is the way we live our lives so that it is instilled in them and is easy for them to continue…I owe them that much! What is your purpose, your reason, your ‘why’? I strongly urge you to find your Ultimate Motivation. It makes life a lot easier when you do.
Why now? Why not? I am currently on Maternity Leave after having my second baby in June 2014. I have been in the Health and Fitness Industry for over 12 years so whilst I am taking a break from my role as Health & Wellness Manager of a very large health club facility in Adelaide, South Australia, I needed somewhere to keep my passion of health and fitness alive and to record my own personal fitness journey post baby and to share how anyone can do it! I have many mummy friends and I obviously come across women of all ages and stages of fitness through my work so if I can inspire or motivate just one other person who is on their own healthy lifestyle journey then that is fantastic. Mission accomplished.
A healthy lifestyle is not a destination, it is a way of life. It is not something that you stop once you have reached a goal, you just reassess your goals, set a new one and keep striving! You can always improve and be a better version of yourself than you were yesterday. All you have to do is start…. after all today is a new day, don’t wait for another one.
Apart from my absolute love of Social Media and having extra time on my hands, for me the decision to blog and make my re-entry back into fitness a public journey was to:
* Keep me accountable and remind me of My.Ultimate.Motivation
* Have somewhere to look back on and be proud of my achievement along the way, and most importantly;
* Step outside my comfort zone and hopefully inspire and help other people along the way!
I would love you to follow me on this crazy ride. I will be posting an honest recap about my own personal adventure (ups and downs included) and I will also include a lot of great information, tips, motivation, ideas on achieving a fit and healthy lifestyle and healthy recipes for YOU to enjoy! In return, I would love you to share your own journey with me and hopefully we can build a supportive and inspiring community together! I’m a dreamer…. and that’s my crazy dream!
