Well, it's happening.
I am starting a blog...however, in an effort to rid you of any preconceived expectations for witty commentary and perfectly arranged thoughts, I have to tell you...it's not for you. Nope. This is for me. I need a place to hold myself accountable to transparency and a genuine account of this journey I'm on (and have been on...and will be on...)
So with that out of the way, my goal is to designate this little personalized sliver of cyber space to my journey in weight loss. <I will be posting my story in future posts for those who do not know already>
I need a place to share my triumphs and pitfalls and to be completely honest about "how it's going". ..we all love this question, right? "how's it going?"...to be completely honest or not to be, that's always the question...WELL, here is where I want to be completely honest, AND, because of that, I am praying for open doors for more honesty and accountability in my life and amazing community of friends and loved ones encouraging me to work hard and be the best I can be. Thank you to those who already do this, and to others, know I have asked for this tough love so don't feel bad prying a little.
As seen in the description, what I want to share is three-fold...like the box for Chandler (FRIENDS references may be a regular occurrence also). Finding Fit is about the perpetual journey. It has been ongoing and, while I know there are those who have struggled with obesity who would seek that one and done fix-it solution, I am not them. Finding Fit is about moving forward with this healthy lifestyle and continuing to find the "fittest" version of Lisa. To me that doesn't have to mean just physically (though, that would be a perky lil sideshow) but, instead, encompasses a completely balanced life with these three particular areas to be "fit".
The physical side will come from adventures with Crossfit. I hope to share things here and there about workouts, including things I struggle with and areas where I excel!
Fueling that habit, and hopefully fueling pounds shed, will be the adventures in the kitchen. I love to cook and have found great joy in sharing that with others. A lot of people ask for different recipes and meal prep techniques I use and this is where you'll find them, as well as the links to those inspiring ME.
Above and beyond anything I can put in my body or perform at the gym, I am 100% certain my Jesus and His amazing Grace gives me strength and HE will do above and beyond what I can even imagine. He has laid it on my heart, for some time now, to put this out there, whether for 1 person or for100.
"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us" Ephesians 3:20
Thank you for making it this far and I hope you'll come along with me as I bring you the details of my journey...
