I have always been strong but I haven’t reached my full potential and this was one step closer to how I want to use my body in this life

Starting the fit life challenge was a challenge for me. First of all I did not want to take a picture or be accountable just in case nothing changed. I joined fit mania because it’s the best place to personally improve in all areas of life. I needed an environment where I could get stronger from ankle surgery and other pre existing injuries caused by playing college sports. The challenge was however extremely good for me. I came consistently where as if I wasn’t in the challenge this summer I don’t believe I would have done that.

As time progressed I found it difficult to come on days that I was sore, tired, sick, or demotivated…however as I overcame those obstacles I felt my body become lighter, stronger, and healthier. Which made me happier.  I was continually uplifted around me by those going through more difficult obstacles than I was faced with. If I could inspire anyone it would be Connie. She and I have grown close over theses months and little does she know, she inspires me the most. I see the pain she goes through but keeps coming. I would hope to help her in loving herself as I had to come to love myself. Also I feel we could both help each other stay accountable for our attendance as well.
What you cannot see in the pictures is the endurance I have gained as well as the confidence. I have always been strong but I haven’t reached my full potential and this was one step closer to how I want to use my body in this life.

The fit mania team is incredible! I love you all I pray for you all and I can’t express the gratitude I have to be able to workout and change lives every day!
