Where I am coming from

So, let's start with why I started this blog.  The reason is two fold:
1. I miss writing-it seems like I have no time for writing or art-two things I was quite passionate about in high school and college
2. I hope that by writing about my fitness attempts that I will hold myself more accountable for the choices that I make and laugh a bit along the way

Now that that is out of the about that title?  As a teacher and a mom, I witness success and failure on a daily basis.  As far as my own personal fitness is concerned I have failed...on more than one occasion!  I am a "Fitness Failure," but I am using that F to push myself harder and improve.  I do not wish to spend the rest of my life overweight and out of shape because I plan to have many great years ahead of me!  The only way that I will push past my roadblocks and get to a place where I feel healthy is for me to be honest with myself about my faults and my failures.  An F doesn't have to be an F forever!  So I named my blog "The Fitness Failure" because I have failed, but I don't want to anymore.

Today-reasoning for the blog


  1. I'll be doing this right along side you! I've been slowly doing more and more, but have a long ways to go. We can do it!

  2. Thanks for being the first to comment Emily! We can laugh with each other along the way!
