My name is Eartha and I created this blog in June of 2006 as a motivational resource for myself to keep up with exercise and eating right. Over the years I have conducted many interviews with fitness professionals and blogged on topics that I have a genuine interest in. This blog continues to be my outlet for my fitness ups and downs as well as a place share what I've learned along the way.

Now that I'm approaching 40 years of age, my outlook on fitness has changed. For me, it's no longer about trying to achieve "glamour fitness." Six-pack abs can be a great goal for some people but for me, it's about maintaining a healthy weight, being active, and enjoying life. I also feel that taking care of the mind, body, and soul are all important. How you feel on the inside is where the success on the outside begins.

I enjoy reading, learning, and writing about all things fitness related. I hope that as well as motivating myself, others may find motivation to try fitness as well.
