Oh hey y’all! Just in case you’re new here, I figured it was time to reintroduce myself (in my Jay-Z voice)! LOL
First off, whether you are new to my website or been here for a while, I want to say THANK YOU for following along with my journey and allowing me to be an inspiration to you, WHILE still on this journey. I am not perfect and definitely still a work in progress. But that’s the beauty of this. I am ME through it all. Unapologetically me..?
So who am I? How did I get here?
I am a 39 year old super woman! I haven’t birthed any kids but have plenty that I support in some way or another (including the tons of nieces and nephews that I have). I am also a Godmom and a dogmom to my furbaby of 7 years.
Can you believe that before I got this pitbull I was afraid of ALL dogs?!?!? LOL I am a music ???lover of all genres (yes even country). I have to admit that playing the video game called Rock Band really heightened my love for rock music. I have loved music all of my life and honestly, I believe that for people like me, it is one of the best forms of therapy! Oh…and shopping! That’s great therapy for me! LOL Seroiusly. Shoes, clothes and purses are MY thing.
That’s why I have to have a career and income that supports that. Coach, Lane Bryant, NY & Company and Walmart are my favorite stores. Oh…and throw in a little bit of Nine West too. 🙂 I also highly believe in self-love. Hair and nail therapy are great for me too. And colors are my jam! LOL
I am a lover of all people (no matter who you are or where you are from) and I typically get along with most. Don’t get it twisted though. I am still a Scorpio and can be the meanest or the sweetest person… take you pic! LOL I love meeting new people and have always had it in my heart to serve and help all that I can in some way. I finished my college career with $100k in student loans and two degrees that now resides in my closet. My BA is in Psychology and Sociology and my M.Ed is in Elementary Teacher Education! Yes I love the kids! 🙂
My health and fitness journey started about three years ago when I was at my highest weight of 250 lbs, suffering from weekly migraines, NO energy and an internal depression that I couldn’t express to anyone. I was wearing almost a size 20 in clothes and none of my older cute clothes fit anymore. I was no longer seen as the “smallest” in my family and that messed me up inside. I was suffering on the inside because I was so disgusted with the person that I had become. I felt like I let myself down and just couldn’t believe that I had gotten to the point where I was wishing my life away (just wishing for every Friday) so that I could at least attempt to refuel my body to do it all over again the next week. My commute to work is 2.5 hours a DAY and…..if you know about Atlanta than you know that commutes come with CRAZY TRAFFIC!
I paid $30 a month for a gym membership for 3 years that I didn’t use and even signed up for a personal trainer that was my friend (who I eventually forfeited my sessions too). My family had high blood pressure and diabetes and I knew it was just a matter of time for me.
I finally got over being stubborn and cheap and signed up for this virtual gym and nutrition community and it changed my life! I lost 6 lbs my FIRST week, quickly eliminated the migraines (free for over 3 years) and totally I’ve lost about 50 lbs (got some of this happy weight back that I’m evicting now), I have more energy, more self- confidence and more WILL POWER… Oh those size 12s and 14s fit nice now! 🙂
As you can see, I’ve been so inspired that I eventually knew that I had to share this awesome experience and opportunity with everyone that came my way (hence the birth of Nenepooh Fitness)! :)Since then, I’ve been traveling, earning some income to change my future life and meeting some of the most amazing rockstars (like you)!
So…. that’s my story (in a nutshell). LOL What’s your story? Introduce yourself and say hello! We are FAMILY here and nonjudgmental! I can’t wait to hear from you!
Heeeeeeeey girl! 🙂
