"Being the best we can is not a choice, it is a responsibility imposed upon us by virtue of the fact that we are free. There are no limits placed upon us here, other than those we impose upon ourselves."
CHARLIE RAGUS, FOUNDER, ADVOCARE INTERNATIONAL

As a single mother of two children and a grandmother of one wonderful grandson. I understand the difficulties we all face — particularly mothers — when balancing the pressing demands of ourselves and/or our children with the nutrition, health and physical fitness needs of themselves. I also know and am too familiar with families often live under tight budgets.

Acknowledging those constraints, the hardest thing for me to do was to set an example for my children by being active and having good eating habits with ALL the activities they were involved in as they were growing up. Not only did I have to encourage them to be physically active and eat right, I had to practice what I preached.

I began my life-long commitment to fitness at a young age. During my fifth grade year in elementary school, I began competing in track and field events. In my 6th grade year, I moved on to Cross Country. In high school, I continued with Cross County and began weight training. As an adult, I complimented my weight training with kickboxing/mixed martial arts (MMA) training.

Over time, I realized that I could inspire and improve not just myself but other people with my infectious love, excitement, and enjoyment of physical fitness. While exercising, I noticed that many people frequently asked me for assistance, instruction, opinions, or just to join them for a workout. In addition, they’d inquire about my nutrition, what I was eating to look fit maintain my energy level and so forth. I found myself being excited that people treasured my opinion and trusted me with their health, fitness, and well-being. Til this day, I keep remembering how they would get motivated because they see my motivation and/or feel my energy.

One day I decided that’s what I want to do! I wanted to help people prevent obesity, high blood pressure, and other health disorders while improving their self-confidence and pride through education and promotion of good eating habits and physical fitness.

Today, my focus is more on reaching out to educate and assist individuals with their nutrition and eating habits. With all the hype and myths of these diets, “diet fads” and quick weight loss through surgery/body modification, and exercising trends, I realize more and more folks are failing at reaching their goals and/or maintaining them and NOT understanding why. It is of the most importance to me, my mission, to change that. I am an Independent distributor of a nutritional supplement company that shares the same goals, values and mission as I do. Together, along with many others, we are making a difference in people's lives nutritionally, physically, and financially every day.

Being here at Wealthy Affiliate, I'm hoping that I can accomplish these goals by attaining the skills and tools necessary to reach out to more and more people that are looking for assistance and education of making nutrition, health, and fitness a lifestyle rather than a "fad". And while I'm at it, looking forward to sharing and showing as many as I can how they too can make a difference in their lives by owning and operating their very own online business and becoming successful with it!

Give me a shout out in the forum and if you want, add me to your buddy list and I'll do the same. I truly look forward to meeting and working with you! Together, we can ROCK this!

Wishing much prosperity!

Good day to you Latrice, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. Right back at you, Latrice. I was a cross-country runner in high school also. I am very thankful for the extra benefit all that running did for my health. Now that I am approaching retirement, my lungs and pulse are still that of a young man.
I look forward to working with you and I am happy you wish to help others to stay fit and eat right. This is so vital today, with all the junk available. I will keep in my prayers. I wish you much success and prosperity in your journey.

Thank you, Ken, for the follow back and your kind words.

I missed the days of training and competing in high school. Not the same as an adult but just as rewarding. Every once in a while, I'll enter into a local run. One of the things I have in my bucket list is to run a Half and a Whole Marathon. I just haven't set myself down to plan and train. Hopefully, I can make that a priority for 2017.

Yes, I agree with you on the "junk". We have gotten away from the basics of nutrition, health, and fitness and it is causing havoc on the human race. I have made it my mission to "re-teach" as many folks that allow me, how to rely on nutrition, health, and fitness and make it a lifestyle rather than a fad.

Thank you for the prayers and support. Looking forward working side by side as we make our mark in this industry and set our paths in our journey!

Keep me in the loop of your progress so I can cheer you on all the way to success!

Latrice, My good friend that is now living in North Carolina competes in a "mud run" race that they have there twice a year. They get really dirty. lol.
I stopped running years ago. Another friend of mine tells me the best way to lose weight is to eat right and run. I am approaching sixty so I am going to add this to my bucket list to start doing this year.

To Your Success.
Ken

Hey, Ken! How fun is that! Mud Run is on my bucket list as well! :)
Here in sunny So Cali, there are ALL types of runs/races. Everything from regular 5k, 10k, 15k to Bubble Run, Neon Run, to Obstacle Races to Half and Full Marathon. I guess Cali is a "running" state lol. So far all I've done are 5 and 10K runs, Bubble Run and a 5-mile race outside of just jogging for exercise. I'm looking forward to concentrating on others and broaden my horizon if you will. ;)

I'm excited to hear that you are looking to get "down and dirty" with a Mud Run. :) You will have a blast of a time!

Your friend is correct about eating right and exercising for weight loss. But, my experience with just running or just cardio period, you tend to lose muscle mass (especially with long distant running). You want to include weight lifting or just some exercises using your body weight such as squats, push-ups, jumping jacks, sit-up, burpees (yes, I said burpees lol) and pull-ups to start off. There are many variations of each of those exercises to make them a bit challenging. My suggestion (and it is just that) is to make sure, if you're just running as a means of exercising and losing weight, to incorporate some "sprint intervals". That will ensure:
1) building of muscle mass (the more "quality" lean muscles you have, the more body fat you will burn even when you're just sitting around doing nothing or sleeping)
2) helps with your "kick" at the end of your race, when most needed.

If you are interested in some running training (regimen) for 5k and beyond, let me know. I'll send you some training guidelines to prepare you for your future races. Also. if you need any tips with your "diet", have any questions and/or concerns about nutrition, health, and fitness, give me a holla. I'll be glad to assist you.

Good luck with your "bucket list" :)

Hello Latrice, ♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself.

I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right, the first website link (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Thank you Kyle. I have a few ideas for niches just need to try to figure out which one to go after first. I will keep in touch and lean on you for advice. Thank you for the warm welcome!
Reply
Kyle Premium
Always a good problem to have, too many niche ideas. You will just need to choose one!

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)
