It’s time I redid this page.
I’m AlbaCarol, but you can call me Carol.
I first started this blog in my last semester of college with a friend of mine as a required project. Meaning, it gets done or we fail. That was in 2014.
After we graduated, I kind of fell in love with blogging. I like writing about what works for me and sharing my fitness journey with others. It’s a beautiful way to connect.
So now that I’ve reintroduced this blog, here’s a little more about me.
I’m a television news producer by night and a writer (plus future grad student) by day. Nope not a mistake, I work overnights. 😉
I’m an optimistic, extremely goofy and a little serious person with a hint of spice (I’m Dominican so yeah, comes with the territory). I began my fitness journey when I first enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 2011. I was more on the curvaceous side weighing in around 180lbs. I wasn’t always so curvaceous, however, once I began making money, I began eating more. It was just that simple, more money more going out to eat. I knew I was overweight, but because of my height (I’m 5’6) no one could really tell. Then one day I was in trouble of failing my personal fitness test, a test that is required two times a year within the Navy; which meant I could get kicked out of the Navy.
That’s when I decided I needed to take not only my health, but my fitness more seriously. I started making smarter food choices, cooking my own food and incorporating an overall healthier lifestyle.
I also started running, which felt more like baby steps because it was so hard for me. But now I have medals from running 5k’s 15k’s and half marathons left and right.
My current goal is to not only live a fit lifestyle, but run a marathon and be in the best shape of my life possible, hopefully, one day competing in a body builders competition.
So thank you for stopping by, I hope my journey serves as inspiration to others.
