Welcome to Destined to Motivate! A blog about all things lifestyle- fitness, health, daily life, etc. I have been contemplating the idea of starting a blog for the past few months and I just never got around to it, but now...IT'S FINALLY TIME!
If you don't know me, my name is Destiny aka Dez. I am a personal trainer so if you ever want a plan, hit me up! Besides that, I just really love to motivate people to live healthy lifestyles on this journey that we call life. It makes my heart really happy!
Some people call me a "fitness guru" but I just call myself a girl that is passionate about living a fit & healthy lifestyle. I took a poll on Instagram before posting this and a bunch of people wanted to know how I got into working out. If I'm being completely honest, I started to work out because I felt as if I didn't have many people that believed in me. I would use negative comments as my motivation. In the moment, it wasn't as easy as it sounds, but looking back, that was my driving force. I felt the need to prove to people that I was capable. I was very self-conscious in high school and I knew that if I wanted that to change, I had to be the one to do it. Absolutely no one was going to do it for me. So, during the summer of 2017, I decided to turn my life around. It's stepping stones, guys. It's not going to happen overnight, but I can tell you that the reward is so much greater! Currently, I workout 5-6 days a week and my body has never felt better in my entire life, both physically and mentally.
I also love to give advice to individuals and help them in their Christian walk, as well as lead people to Christ. Now, I am not a perfect Christian myself and I realize that, but I like to use my brokenness and mistakes to help others thrive...Let me say that in a different way. I love to use my experiences that the Lord has set forth before me to help other individuals who might be going through similar situations. Jesus has completely transformed my life. He brought me from a low sense of purpose to finding freedom in the fact that my identity is in Jesus and Jesus alone! Because of that, I am NOT afraid to share to others how he has been faithful to me. So yes, all things Jesus will be a topic on here but I hope that won't stop you from sticking around to hear the good news! That won't be the only subject, so I think you will definitely find something of interest to you! If you'd like, I am also accepting topic requests if you have any that you would like me to touch on. Leave them below!
Overall, I hope that you guys learned a little bit more about me from this! I am very excited to share more of my everyday life and hopefully inspire you to live in the moment. This is a beautiful life that we live and we should learn never to take that for granted.
Thank you for coming along on this journey with me.
