So why start a blog?
I want to reach out and help as many people as possible to achieve their full potential and to be happy with the life they lead.
My goal is to become the strongest, happiest version of myself that I can be, and to inspire YOU to do the same.
I will give open and honest accounts of my day to day life, how I deal with the different stages of my son growing up, how I overcome the unecessary pressures I am guilty of putting on myself, how I maintain a healthy lifestyle without a gym membership or a great deal of time, and hopefully give an entertaining account of my life as a mum and a wife.
Put simply I want this to be a place of interaction between other like minded people who want to be part of a positive community.
So who am I anyway?
My name is Joanne and I am 29 years old. I live in South Yorkshire with my husband Tony, our 8 month old son Charlie and our Spring Spaniel called Alan. I am currently on a career break, taking a year to be a full time mum. I am hugely passionate about fitness and health, I hold a qualification in Fitness Instructing and I manage to maintain my fitness without a gym membership or a lot of time.
I wasn’t always in to fitness, far from it, I hated it! I was overweight, lacked confidence and tried many different things to achieve the body I wanted, and failed miserably every time. Until two years ago when I dedicated myself to the Insanity workout, completing it 3 times through and losing 2 and a half stone (15kg). That sparked a love of fitness and a love of living life in a confident and fulfilling way, which I now try to maintain while on my journey through motherhood.
So why am I telling you this, why should you care? Well in short, you don’t have to care, but without telling you about myself I would have nothing to share, and you would find it very hard to relate to me.
The more I become passionate about making the most of life, the more I want to share my experiences and help others to do the same.
