To fitness!

While buying decongestion medicine for my poor boyfriend who is allergic to my cats and staying with my family a few days, I saw this magazine at the check out register at my local Drug Store. Feeling out of shape and wanting to be inspired I choose to buy it and get some motivation to work out. Nikita and I are going to a wedding on the second weekend of June and I want to get my legs toned for my white mini dress, therefore I was drawn to this months Muscle and Fitness Hers magazine.

Not only did I get the motivation that I needed to blog about today’s work out, but there was also an article about a woman who had completely changed her lifestyle after being diagnosed with Stage 0 breast cancer. After finding out about her diagnosis, the 33 year old Lynn Howland had a double mastectomy and also given the news that she carried the breast cancer gene. Lynn fell into a deep depression, from 115lbs the woman dropped down to 110lbs.

Before being diagnosed with breast cancer, Lynn would brag about  her incredible metabolism, she barely work-out and ate all the pizza and junk food you can only imagine. She weighed 115lbs with her lifestyle, even after giving birth to 2 kids! However, after learning that she is a carrier of the breast cancer gene and that the breast cancer could reoccur she decided to change her lifestyle in regards to her health and fitness. She is now a healthy eater and a frequent gym goer. She changed her life for the best! INSPIRATIONAL.

This goes to show that you can have an amazing metabolism but eating right and maintaining a healthy lifestyle will keep you healthy and will you give strength to fight off any illness!
