    Guest Post: Find Your Fitness #beyoutiful

    On Wednesday, October 18th, Momentum will be joining forces with Handful Activewear to celebrate National Love Your Body Day in a unique and visually powerful way. Our BE YOUtiful campaign will encourage everyone everywhere to reclaim the beauty and power within. To get ready, we'll be sharing a series of inspirational blog posts from BE YOUtiful women. Today, we bring you Oneisha Lee from Shape Your Bliss.

    Fitness is hard. It takes work to stay healthy. From eating as clean as possible to finding a fun and effective workout to staying motivated, it's not something that will ever be easy. if you are anything like me, you are constantly scrolling through social media sites, finding before/after photos and thinking to yourself, "she looks so good now, I wish I looked like her."

    Of course, we shouldn't compare ourselves, but social media is a huge part of our life and it's truly too easy to fall into that trap.

    For the last couple of years, I struggled to find the right workout for me. My friend told me about a program that is incredibly popular, and the community on Instagram is unlike anything I've ever seen. Everyone is so supportive of one another, and their transformation photos are incredible. To be honest, the photos motivated me. Everyone looked "perfect" and I felt that if I did the workouts, then I would achieve this ideal body type.

    I gave it a go sometime last year, but never finished it. I tried three more times, but it never hooked me. Suddenly, I felt like an absolute failure, and the success stories made me feel worse. I did some self-searching, and after a few months, I realized that I lied strength training. I really admired the women who were weightlifting.

    Now, every single body type is beautiful, but it's important to figure out what is meaningful to you. As soon as I realized that I wanted to focus on lifting and getting stronger, I got to work.

    The next few weeks were truly difficult. Gyms had always terrified me, but with a definitive goal in mind, I was committed to doing anything and everything required of me to meet my goals. I joined my local gym—gyms had always been a foreign concept to me. I felt like everyone was watching and judging me. To say that I was self-conscious would be a huge understatement. Nevertheless, I was committed and I quickly realized that the community at my gym was really strong.

    So I kept working out. I experimented with all of the equipment, and eventually did my first-ever assisted pull-up. The transformation has been incredible.

    Although my body continues to shape up nicely, I have also transformed on the inside. My confidence is at an all-time high and I feel fantastic. I have so much energy throughout the day, and I am happier now, too. The gym has become my happy place. It makes me feel good. I am proud of my body and all that it can do.

    Like every woman, I still get self-conscious when I take photos. By no means do I think that I look perfect, but I have learned to be kinder to my body. I have also learned patience because the fitness journey is a long one. Results take time—but they don't mean anything if the process doesn't make you happy. 

    Your body is capable of doing so much. Regardless of what it looks like now, you have the power to transform it. So love your body. Cherish it deeply, and thank it every day for keeping you alive and healthy.

    The amazing women from the Wild Bruce Chase Team set to race the Rideau Trail tomorrow!

    On Canada Day (this Saturday, July 1st) 11 of the amazing women from the Wild Bruce Chase, will undertake a new record-setting adventure!  

    In 2016 the Wild Bruce Chase Team completed the Bruce Trail (approx. 900k!) in a record-setting 4 days, 1 hour and 39 minutes!  

    They shared a custom Momentum Motivate Wrap for that impressive journey, passing off to the next runner for each leg of the journey.  

    Their Motivate Wrap changed hands 67 times over the 4 days of racing! It has travelled the entire Bruce Trail, end to end!

     

     

    Tomorrow, to mark the country's 150th Anniversary, they are attempting an end-to-end race of the Rideau Trail.  This 300K+ route from Ottawa to Kingston is wild and rugged, with some sections of the trail buried under 2- to 3-feet of water!  


    We are honored that their beloved Motivate Wrap will accompany them on this adventure, as will some 'be BRAVE' SPARKlets.

    You can follow their progress towards their goal of finishing in 30 hrs on Instagram @WildBruceChase.
