Day 21; Blog Start

Why did you start writing a blog?
Since, I started my fitness journey, I'd talk about it one way or another, with friends, via social networks, always sharing. It INSPIRED people, it showed that there was NO EASY way of making it happen. It took HARD WORK; COMMITMENT; DISCIPLINE; TIME.....
So, I figure, I'd start a blog just for "all things fitness-related", more in-depth. SO, I started late last year and would update here and there. And, keep my other blog to life itself, to my "life" happenings. I would often get questions on how I started, what's my latest routine, this-that- and the other. And, now I can share it through a post or have them refer to it with a shared link. It's also a way to keep myself accountable, with the upcoming deployment. People often praise me for getting it done with 3 kids, in tow and a husband away. Believe me, It's not always easy, my girls don't always want to cooperate with my routine, things change. When he is away, I don't get many outdoor [solo] runs, my race schedule is affected, after all, who is going to watch my 3 girls. I have Fabulous Friends, who have and offer. And, in turn, I'd do the same for them. I'll share my challenges as a wife of a deployed Sailor, and a Busy Mama to 3 girls; if I can make it happen, anyone else can, given any situation. A support to other friends, local support with fitness-related meetups (Bootcamps & Meetup Runs). 
Let's make it happen!!

"Don't wait to for inspiration to find you; BECOME IT!!"


  1. So many of those sayings hit home for me. Congratulations on inspiring others and motivating yourself. Keep up the hard work.

  2. Agreed!! I just spent a month solo parenting my 3 and working, and people are shocked that I was also able to train for a triathlon - it's all about priorities and commitment. Great job on being so awesome! You rock!
