Hello, and welcome to Fighting for Wellness!
I’m Becki, a Boston transplant (10+ years) from the mountains of North Carolina. I am an ACSM certified personal trainer with a master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling. I currently work as the Systems Coordinator for a multi-state student support intervention in elementary and middle schools.
I am passionate about running and fitness in general, surprising given that I didn’t run my first mile until 2010. I am now a three-time marathoner! Since graduating from college I have lost 80-90 pounds (and counting!) and have dedicated myself to healthy living.
I started this blog to help people like me. This blog is for people who have or still do struggle with their weight, depression or anxiety, food addiction, self-doubt, or just being healthy and well in general.
Every day is still a fight for me. I battled food addiction, inactivity, and depression for so long that I find myself slipping back that direction sometimes. So today, like every day, I’m fighting for my own wellness, but also the wellness of others. I want to inspire others to do the same to help get their lives where they want and deserve them to be.
Join me in this journey where I’ll post about successes and setbacks, including workouts, recipes, products I love, and more! This journey won’t be easy, but nothing worth having ever is. Your life is worth the fight.
