Fitness Friday Begins with ShapelyGirl Fitness

When I was first presented with the opportunity to be a part of a fitness review group, I thought it would be fantastic. This would allow all the ladies to encourage and support one another. Then I began thinking, what if I would not be able to keep up? I quickly realized that was the enemy trying to put fear in my way of reaching my goals. For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 I decided to sign up and was super excited to be chosen to become a part of the ShapelyGirl Fitness Review Crew.  

I know you are probably wondering what ShapelyGirl Fitness is and why I wanted to be connected to this particular fitness review. ShapelyGirl Fitness™ was created by Debra Mazda M.Ed. ShapelyGirl Fitness is a Health/Wellness/Fitness company whose platform passionately believes that “FITNESS COMES IN MANY SIZES”. Debra is inspiring all women regardless of what size they are –or want to be to get up and begin moving today. Debra is living proof you don’t need to be a size 2 to be Fit & Fabulous!

What is a ShapelyGirl?

At her most confident, she’s passionate, positive, and confident with her shapely figure. She is moving forward to better health because she is secure in her body and knows that fitness comes in many sizes.

First of all, I want to say losing weight is different for each individual. It was a very difficult process (some health issues) for me until I changed my eating habits and my way of thinking. Once my mentality changed, I began losing weight but I have also been losing my motivation and consistency. It is so easy to lose focus and for me to get back on track is extremely difficult. Some can lose faster than others. Yes, losing some weight is good but my main goal is to be healthy and to revive my energy. I realized before signing up with this crew that part of the stipulations were you have to be committed to working out the minimum of three days a week. I knew if I obligated myself to something I would remain through the entire program.

I will be using ShapelyGirl’s Let’s Get Moving!  Low-Impact Cardio DVD as my workout routine.

Joining forces with ladies, who are determined to make some lifestyle changes through fitness, was enticing to me because I had already begun making changes myself and to have them there to help encourage and motivate me to STAY ON TRACK is great. There is nothing like having some praying sisters who have been where you are/ or walking the path with you. 

By the end of this review, my goal is to have lost some inches, gained my energy and no more restless nights. 

I will be posting my thoughts regarding the ShapelyGirl Fitness and my weekly progress here every Friday during the month of October with the final post being November 2, 2012. Please join me if you are in need of motivation and encouragement. WE can do this TOGETHER!!! Now let’s get moving!!!
