Hi guys, in this important month I want to support and motivate women to reach their goals and aspirations. That’s why I’m sharing my journey on becoming the best version of myself — and how you can do it too.
When I was younger I was really insecure about my body. Even to the point where I was starving myself and loving that feeling because I wanted to be skinny. I was very skinny but I didn’t look good because I wasn’t healthy. Then when I got into my twenties, I got a job and my life changed so my body wanted to catch up on those all those years in ‘starvation mode’, I was binge eating and I didn’t work out at all.
Two years ago I said to myself enough is enough, and that’s when my health journey started.
I was exercising more often, I started weight training and I started eating healthier with the support of Body&Fit. Being able to find products for every need helps me aim higher each and every day. It’s really true what they say: when you feel good on the inside it will shine through on the outside!
At the beginning of this year, I had a minor setback because of the gyms being closed and sitting at home all the time. But this year I will strive to be the best version of myself, physically and mentally, because working out and eating healthy isn’t just good for the body — it’s especially good for your mind!
I hope to have inspired you. There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish! #Aim Higher.
