Welcome to Fit Fuel!

I am so excited to launch my new blog, Fit Fuel! Let me tell you a little bit about myself!

I have struggled with my weight for several years. I would try new things, but ultimately, would fail. I didn't really know what to do, or how to do it, I just knew that I wanted to lose weight and feel better about myself.

A few years ago, a good friend, Carolyn Green, contacted me and introduced me to Beachbody. I didn't really know what Beachbody was, or what Shakeology was, but once I talked to her, I was sold!! I got into one of her online Fitness Challenge groups, and lost 17 pounds in 2 months!! And as they say, the rest is history!!

I started going through the Beachbody workout programs, and loved how they were a whole workout program (not just one workout DVD to do each day), how each program included a nutrition plan, and how you can get results from following these plans!!

Now, over the years, I have definitely still struggled with my weight. But I now know what I need to do to get the results I want! The 21 Day Fix is probably the most effective program since it has a different workout for each day of the week (focusing on different areas), has a simple nutrition plan with color-coded containers (to help you eat clean and in the correct portions), and then you add in the support network of a Challenge group on Facebook, and you've got a recipe for success! This is the program I'm currently going through!

In October, I did a program called the Ultimate Reset, which jumpstarted my health and nutrition again! I lost 13 pounds and 9 inches in 3 weeks! It is a strict, 21 day plan where you take specific supplements at specific times, eat exactly what is prescribed (you prepare each meal), and you don't workout, or at least you don't workout strenuously. I was so grateful for that program, because it showed me the crazy discipline that I had, that I can stick with something hard, and that I could get results!! I was ecstatic!

Check out what that program is here:

So, what do I hope to show you in this blog?

I hope to share my health and fitness journey with you!

I want to feature healthy recipes! I am a foodie by nature, and if I'm going to be successful in my weight loss journey, I have to find healthy, delicious recipes! I'll share them with you!

I will be sharing my next Fitness Challenge group that I will be hosting! If you are ready to start your health/fitness journey, I'd love to be a part of it!!

I hope to share health/fitness tips with you! As I find new tips and tricks, and find what works for me on my health journey, you can bet I'll share them here!
