About

I’m a fitness addict.

Seriously, addicted to exercise.

I grew up as a chubby girl.  As a teen I developed eating disorders and depression.  It wasn’t until after college and a major weight gain that I changed my life.   I changed my eating habits and got into physical activity.  I started off with just 20 minutes a day a few times a week.  And from that my love of exercise took off.

I am a runner, I’m a dancer, I’m a mover and shaker.

I’ve participated in home workouts (Shaun T’s Insanity, P90X, Jillian Michaels, etc.) and boot camps, I hit the gym, I do Zumba and Yoga and Barre.  I box and I run several races a year.  I am constantly pushing myself.

I try not to preach.  But If you ask I will give you my “advice” and my opinion.

I’m not super thin.  But I am healthy and I am fit.  I am am proud.

Note* – Since starting this blog I have become a CanFitPro certified Personal Trainer and Nutrition and Weight Loss Coach.  I teach boot camp classes, family fitness classes, as well as offering personalized training.  I am having a blast on this journey and I am so thankful that I made the decision to get with it all those years ago.  My only regret is that I wish I had found fitness earlier in my life.

  1. I didn’t know you had a Fit Blog too Ms. B. That’s awesome! Keep up your great work(outs)!

  2. got to show us pictures of your results

    • I don’t normally post photos of myself here SPECIFICALLY because I’m trying not to promote that sort of thing. As my tagline says “Being Healthy Doesn’t Mean Being Thin”, I am here sharing my journey and offering information and motivation. I am fit and I am healthy and I don’t believe I need to “prove” it to anyone but myself. 🙂

    What exercise should I do

  4. HI there! I totally agree, you don’t have to be skinny in order to be fit. There are so many girls out there that are skinny and yet far from fit. All the best!

    • Thank you Olena! And there are plenty of women, as well, who have some meat on their bones and are completely fit and healthy. It’s what I’m trying to promote here. I’m not a super skinny gal but I am healthy and I am fit and I am addicted to exercise. 🙂

    I have never worked out a day in my life i am trying this to tone muscles i am not a big girl i’m 5’5″ and 110 lbs. I have always wanted abs but have never put the effort in, i am concerned i am day 6 into this and my belly is swelling.. is that normal with this challenge. please let me know if i should stop doing this or not thanks

    • Hi Lisa….I’m assuming you’re doing the Ab Challenge?
      No, I’ve never heard of the belly swelling after this or any workout. Are you in pain? Are you drinking lots of fluids? You should speak with a medical professional as soon as possible. I’m concerned about a hernia or a blockage that may be completely unrelated to the workout. Please feel free to inbox me (nsfitnessqueen@yahoo.ca) and let me know what’s up.

  6. Keep motivating my friend. I like what your doing and look forward to hearing more about your success.

    We actually started doing this exercise, we want to know the diet details, could you please provide a detailed diet chart for us, so that it will be much more effective.

    • Hi Sireesha…..which exercise are you talking specifically talking about? I’m guessing The 30 Day Ab Challenge but since you’re in the About section I want to be certain.
      With regard to any diet plan – two things: 1) it is out of my scope of practise to develop an eating plan for anyone (as of yet and especially not knowing anything about you or any individual) 2) These exercises and Challenges don’t have “specific” eating plans. As with ANY healthy diet you need to eat balanced foods – fruits/veggies, carbs, protein, etc. and hydrate. You can check out Canada’s Food Guide (go here http://hc-sc.gc.ca/fn-an/food-guide-aliment/index-eng.php and click the “Get Your Copy” button to download a copy) or you can seek out a dietician or nutritionist or you can simply balance your diet yourself. Good luck. 🙂

    Hello, i have been a big girl most my life and i have lost some weight by just cutting out sodas sweets and fast food but im still unhappy with the way I look and feel. The last time i actually exercised was in gym class back in high school. Do you have a work out plan for beginners?

    • Hello Jessica! First of all – let me say that there’s nothing wrong with being a “big girl” (and I’m sure our definitions of ‘big’ differ), what we’re aiming for is better health. 🙂 And I applaud you for cutting out the sodas and other junk. I’m not a soda drinker and never have been but my boyfriend and a couple of friends have also cut out drinking soda and they watched the weight melt off away. So that’s definitely a big and commendable step!
      I would love to design a beginner workout plan for you. Would you be willing to email me at nsfitnessqueen@yahoo.ca so that I can get more info from you and so that it’s not public for all to see. 😀 I hope to hear from you soon.
