Summer is fast approaching and beach and pool season is just around the corner. If you're like most, now is when you start that crash diet or hit the gym more frequently with a short term goal to lose weight and get in shape fast. However, this is not the best way to accomplish the end goal as this shouldn't be a summer challenge but rather a lifestyle commitment.
Here at Pulsebandz,we want to recognize one of our first social media influencers who made a decision to change her fitness goals 3 years ago and has become a model of fitness and healthy living, not to mention looking fantastic.
In her senior year of high school, Maryana Dvorska started out like all of us, with the goal to lose weight... and lose weight she did. She did what most girls her age were taught to do, eat 1200 calories of clean food a day and do 2 hours of cardio daily. At the end of one month she was down close to 30 pounds. But as she continued on this path, becoming weak and never happy with herself and thinking she’d never have a piece of pizza again, she realized her quality of life wasn't what she wanted. So over the course of the following three years and extensive research Maryana came out of her comfort zone to begin working with weights to not only be happy with her appearance but her lifestyle as well. She is an important influencer who has become a role model and an inspiration to young and old alike. She has health, fitness, and a lifestyle that no longer consumes her life, but enhances it.
Words to Live By
We want others to look up to Maryana when it comes to a healthy lifestyle. It is important to love yourself before anything else. She went through a tough journey but made sure she was happy with herself through it. She developed self love.
