Natasha is 34 years old and resides in Lloydminster. She has two boys ages 8 and 4.5 months. She is currently on maternity leave and works full-time as an educational assistant.
I joined Women Warriors because I needed motivation and support and I felt a group setting would be beneficial to me. I enjoy walking and working out (now).
Before Women Warriors I really didn’t do a whole lot of exercise, but since joining I make sure I get in my 10,000 steps a day and I’ve started using my workout DVD’s that have been collecting dust for years. I’m going to joining a gym soon, and I’ve investigated a few around town. I try my best to get a workout in when the baby is napping.
My self-love practice is learning to take time for myself.
My philosophy on healthy living is to do what works for you, and don’t compare. Don’t let fitness and diet hold you back from achieving a healthy life – make it fun!
My favourite treat is chocolate. I LOVE chocolate.
My daily struggle is food. From the time I wake up till the time I go to bed. Since joining Women Warriors I have made a lot better choices and I am learning that food doesn’t have to be the enemy if I know how to use it.
My advice to my younger self would be to love and believe in yourself, and stay active.
My inspiring words for others is only you can make a change! Don’t let one bad choice influence how the rest of your day goes – get through it, and move on.
Thanks for sharing your healthy living message Tasha!
