Welcome / 1st Post

Hi, I’m Lauren, Ren for short. You may be visiting from my other blog: Ren Was Here or you may just be browsing. Welcome, no matter how you happened upon my path.

I am a 25 year old fit wannabe. I’ve come to the point where living a life of leisure is slowly making my life not so lovely. I’m ready to take control and get back on track. I know very little about getting fit and eating healthy. Ok, I know a bit. But, this is my journey from unfit to fit, unhealthy to healthy, overweight to right on track! No more saying, but now it’s time for the doing! Yes, I will fail. I’m ok with that. It’s what I do with failing. I pick myself up and start all over again. It’s going to be hard. But with some prayer, faith, hard work, and encouragement, I think I can get this body a movin and a groovin. (I’m corny, fyi).

So, why blog about it? And why not just use my old blog? What a wonderful question you’ve asked. Because, I wanted to track my journey with food, fitness, and faith. My other blog is more just about my musings and personal life. This get’s down to the nitty gritty!
