Welcome to Honestly Fitness!
Before I launch into an introduction, let me take a moment to thank you all so much for visiting Honestly Fitness!
This blog was created with a vision to share the knowledge that I have gained over the years regarding health, fitness and everything in between. The majority of what I post will focus on health and fitness, but I play around a lot with beauty products (who doesn’t want soft and smooth skin?) so there will be the occasional beauty and lifestyle post.
Most of us, myself included, are not blessed with a super fast metabolism that allows them to eat whatever they want and stay in great shape. I started getting serious about fitness when I was about 16 and have been on that journey ever since. The keyword here is journey. The majority of people have the notion that once you achieve whatever you started out to achieve (such as losing 10 pounds), you can go back to your old habits and let loose so to speak. Unfortunately this is not the case – once you have achieved a particular goal, it is up to you to maintain that goal and to develop healthy and sustainable habits that will keep you in shape forever, and not just for 6 months. I will be on this journey for the rest of my life and I am so excited to share my thoughts and experience with you all!
My hope is that this blog will allow you to develop and maintain these habits. Fad diets, starvation and deprivation of any kind DO NOT work. For example, diets such as low-carbohydrate diets may work well in the short term, but your body thrives off of carbohydrates, and there is no way you can have a healthy and functioning body on such a diet. Be good to yourself and nourish your body with the correct nutrition and your body will thank you. Exercise for your goals, do not just blindly follow a ‘Drop 10 pounds fast!’ diet from a magazine.
I truly hope that you find this blog helpful, and please feel free to leave comments suggesting how I could improve the blog. Video editing advice would be much appreciated as I am a complete beginner!
