Astrid Morgan – Founder, Better Believe Fit
Read about her AMAZING journey to BN Shape!
My name is Astrid, a 35 yr old mother of two, fitness fanatic, inspiration junkie, and motivational mama! As you can see from my progress pics below, I have not always been in shape. I never learned about nutrition or exercise as a young person and pretty much ate whatever I wanted and steadily gained weight. Super size was a given at the drive thrus. Any day, I could eat all three meals from a fast food joint. It was not until I met my husband that I really started to understand how fitness and exercise could benefit your body.
We went to the gym and worked out but never really got serious about our eating habits. Then I had my first child…and I tipped the scale at 211 lbs when I delivered. I knew I had to make a change! There was a day that I was in my closet (almost in tears from not finding anything that fit) and I had a realization…WHEN DID I STOP BEING IMPORTANT ENOUGH TO MYSELF TO BE HEALTHY???
Since then, I have been consistently astounded by how amazing our bodies are! How they crave clean, healthy, and whole foods. How those foods provide us with boundless energy, a fantastic physique and incredible strength to carry us through life! I am a HUGE fan of HIIT training! I LOVE my kettlebells, free weights, running and CrossFit! I am currently enrolled in college getting my Personal Trainer Certification and plan on being Certified Group Fitness Instructor in the upcoming months!!! WATCH OUT WORLD!!!
Can you tell I am excited about being in shape?!?!?
After my transformation, I wanted to share and encourage others, and let them know that with a will to win they can accomplish anything! That desire inspired me to create www.Facebook.com/BetterBelieveFit and www.BetterBelieveFit.com where you can get work outs, healthy eating tips, encouragement and more! I also have a YouTube channel www.YouTube.com/BetterBelieveFit. And I am a FitFluential Ambassador and a Sweat Pink Ambassador, both fantastic groups of fitness minded folks!
Learning to have control over my body has been one of the best things to ever happen to me! REMEMBER…Your health is your wealth! Eat clean, Work Hard and don’t forget to love yourself!!!
