How the body moves: nuggets from my journey to be fit

Okay, let me just set the record straight right off the bat: I am NOT a fitness professional. I do not work in the field of fitness, I am not a physical therapist, bio mechanist, nor am I a fitness blogger. Truthfully, I’m can’t even classify myself as a fitness enthusiast! There are no credentials attached to my name whatsoever in this field.

That being said, let me tell you what I am. I am a mom who has birthed 3 babies, and I have some if the typical battles scars to prove it. I have dealt with a diastasis recti for over 17 years (will elaborate in that later). I am in my mid-forties and trying to navigate being fit in this era of my life. I am on a journey to be my best, to be fit and strong.

With all that going on, it is safe to say that I’ve had the benefit of learning a few things about fitness along the way. I would like to share them wth you as I got them, one nugget at a time. My terminology won’t be technical in nature – it will be a lay persons jargon. I will simply try to share what I’ve learned about how the body moves, core strength, what connects with what, alignment, diastasis recti, and how working one seemingly unrelated part of the body can benefit another part. I’ll also share some of the mental shifts that I’ve had to make to stay in the game.

There have been some professionals that I’ve met along the way, and I’m grateful for their expertise and their work. I will be glad to point you in their direction with links and information because Heaven knows they have helped me. A. Lot.

So, over the next few months, I’ll be posting about the small things I’ve learned that have added up to big changes. Maybe it will help you as it it helped me. Maybe you will see hope for your journey to be fit as well. I’m not where I want to be, but I’m a few steps closer…and I hope you get closer to where you want to be also ūüėČ

One step at a time,
