Get Fit and Cry Trying

My Health Story

At the age of 12 my doctor looked at me and said "Alexa you are overweight", the word's crushed my spirit to it's core. I was nicknamed "skinny minnie" by my father when I was a child because I was so thin and now I had become the complete opposite in a matter of months. After that day at the doctors office my self esteem was never the same. I began to get teased in school all the way through my freshman year of high school and then I decided enough was enough. I was not going to let others and my lack of self love over power who I really was.

My sophomore year of high school I began doing tae-bo and windsor pilates and fell in love with working out. The weight began falling off and I was so excited. My confidence did a complete turn for the better and I began to take pride in how I looked and who I was.

Fast forward 10 years later, I am still a lover of fitness. I am not in bad shape but I desire to take it up a notch and become more consistent in my workouts. I have done insanity, T25, strength and HIIT training over the past few years. Due to health issues (inflammation, cysts and knee problems) I had to slow down. I vowed I would push through and that is what I am here to do. 

I can't wait to update you guys on my progress. You're body is a temple and taking pride in it is definitely a form of worship to God. Let's get fit together and cry trying. ;)
