myFABfitness: My Story  


I started this fitness journey one year ago this month. I set a goal of reclaiming my health and obtaining a certain physical condition by May 28, 2016, my late father’s birthday. 

Why May 28th specifically? Well I was a true daddy’s girl. When he was sick, he had NO FILTER. Oh the stories I could tell! Once when I visited him in his care facility, he asked me if I was pregnant. “Oh Lord,” I thought… “I’ve got to fix this!” But he was ill, I was in the process of relocating, and I had a lot going on. I have never been overweight even at my heaviest, so I figured I’ll get back to “me” eventually. 

Well eventually finally came last year when I got sick of being sick. I was getting colds that would linger, my knees and joints were stiffening, and I was snoring in my sleep… NOT SEXY! I went to several doctors for an entire work up. My blood pressure was slightly elevated, but I did not have sleep apnea or any other illness. Thank God! But I knew if I stayed on this path of not taking care of myself and putting myself last, that my health would be destroyed. I was not having that! 

So in honor of my dad, I declared that I would get back into tip top shape by his birthday. I’m now in the home stretch and I’ve accomplished a lot. During these last few weeks leading up to May 28, my focus will be nutrition. I am my father’s child and I indeed inherited his sweet tooth! I will cut my sugar intake and do some safe and planned fasting. The old, new me, nice and lean and healthy and strong, will be visiting his grave site. I can already see myself running from the car yelling, “Daddy, I ba-aaaack!!” Your baby girl is back better than ever. Thanks for inspiring me from beyond. I love you. 

Has anyone or thing or a life event motivated you on your fitness journey? Feel free to share your story.
