A New Day, No Excuses

BOOM!  Fit journey is BACK!  Beside the guilt and the fact that there were some days that I couldn’t lift my arm above my head or drive because of neck and shoulder issues, there wasn’t a day that went by that I didn’t feel a hole from not posting on here.  I know I should have written about what was going on, but I don’t like to do the pity thing and I was so bummed about the whole thing that writing it down just made it seem more real.  At the same time, I should have let you all know what was going on and I am sorry.  I have answered a lot of personal emails from you asking what is going on and I so appreciate your questions and your concern.  It meant the world to me.

So, here I am, my neck is still a little off, but I am ready to get back into it.  I have a new job that will help make my life a little more consistent,  I will be the lead makeup artist for a live kid’s TV program and I plan to start doing yoga quite a bit more (I think that will really help my neck).  Due to me not being able to workout as much, I have put back on some weight, but adding weight is just a small bump in the road.  There really is no reason, but me, to stop me from getting back into one of my favorite worlds – the fitness world.  It has been the backbone of so many different parts of my life, and I am ready.

So, please know that I promise any other bumps that come up, I will have you as part of the journey and not step away and I hope you can all forgive me.

I am excited and looking forward to bringing new workouts, new fitness adventures (I’m feeling some more tri-training come up) and some new videos.  Because if I can do this, you certainly can!

So, I look forward to feeling whole again by writing and being here with all of you.






About Julia

Is a successful NYC based makeup artist - you can see her work all over TV, in top magazines all over the world and she has been featured in the New York Times, Prevention Magazine and numerous other publications, she is the former beauty editor for Bloginity and owns a small boutique beauty business called Brush Beauty. She has had a few careers ranging from construction management to radio and everything in between, however, the constant passion in her life was always fitness. Even when she lost her way from it, she was always constantly motivated by athletes and anything movement oriented around her. She is the type of person who only gets star struck by people like Gabby Douglas, Matt Long, Pat Riley or Kerri Walsh and the thought of meeting any of them puts her stomach in little girly teenage knots. Favorite workouts: Bootcamps, Spinning, swimming and lifting alone with my headphone on.
