#LJFitChallenge And A New Perspective

I have been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are mine and honest in nature.

Truth time - it took me awhile to get on board with the nutrition piece - go figure. I know - shocker right?!?

But I have to say the Lorna Jane Fit Challenge (#LJFitChallenge) is what really lit a fire under my rear to get strong and fit (notice I didn't say skinny). Sure, I want to lose some weight. I am carrying around some unwanted pounds that I've gained over this past year. But when I started doing the #LJFitChallenge, I felt myself getting stronger. And it sparked a desire for me to start strength training, which I have done.



In addition to becoming stronger, I'm changing the way that I see myself and my reason for working out. In the past, it's been a lot about calorie burn. Now, it's about getting healthy and getting stronger, and not focused on calories burned and pounds lost. I've ditched the scale (#FitFridayConfessions - Breaking Up With the Scale) and I'm focusing on the positive results that I'm seeing (Take a Good Look)

Although I wasn't able to follow the challenge 100% at the time due to injury, I feel that I did get results - lasting ones - both emotional and physical ones. I plan to incorporate a lot of these moves from the challenge into my normal routine as well as the nutritional portion.

And if you are looking for additional support, there is also a facebook group that you can join. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1022436647773512/

My takeaway from the #LJFitChallenge has been a positive one. I am so glad that I did this. And if you are looking for a positive change, I encourage you to check out the Lorna Jane Fit Challenge also. 

I haven't reached my goals yet, but I'm well on my way.
