There is no perfect time, act now

Here we are a year and 1 day after I started this blog… why did it take me so long?  Honestly? I lacked confidence in my writing skills, had a very busy year and most significantly, I wanted my posts to be perfect; therefore, I wrote several drafts, but never published anything.

Shame on me… Yes, I know.

So I’m doing this full speed ahead.  Taking my own advice, which I give all the time… not waiting for the perfect moment or the perfect piece of writing…  just starting now… As I post more, you will get to better understand me, my viewpoint, what I’m about, what my goals are, and hopefully, walk away from the blog with something helpful.  That is my goal here.

I’m steam rolling into 2014…  bringing all of the good things that I was blessed with in 2013, as well as all of the valuable lessons I learned… Quick recap – In 2013, I boldly left Corporate America after 13 years to pursue my passion, which is Health, Fitness and Wellness.   In addition to taking the leap with my career, I also took a huge risk on a long distance relationship which didn’t work out, but was definitely for the best.  I’m an even better version of myself now.  I met some amazing people which I have added to my close network of friends, and I also successfully accomplished a long term personal goal of competing at the professional level for the first time with the International Federation of Body Building. 

Those are the highlights… yay! Now let’s move forward. Stay tuned because I have a lot to talk about and I hope you enjoy the ride.


Welcome to the Fit By Tiana Blog

Welcome!  Thank you for joining me… You’ve stumbled upon my new blog and I am so grateful you have taken the time to allow me to introduce myself to you. My name is Tiana Lee Gonzalez.  I am a native New Yorker, embarking on a new chapter of my life and looking to share my fitness experiences with all of you.

I’m relatively new to blogging and I hope that you can be patient while I teach myself how to create a blog that will be inviting, entertaining, engaging, informative, helpful, and pleasurable for you, my readers.  The quote I’ve started us off with is so powerful and one that I think truly embodies what I have grown into as a woman.  I am going through some changes now, as I am embarking on new things.  For example, studying for my Personal Training certification and helping others reach their fitness goals.  The concept is simple, no really.  It is.  If you want something to be different, don’t just sit there and cry about it… do something about it.  If you want more peace in your life, be peaceful.  If you want love in your life, be lovable.  Life does not have to be complex.  Drill things down as simple as you possibly can, and find a way to make what you want come to fruition.

We’ll touch on this a lot more in time.  But I would like for you to mull this one over for a bit.  Again, thank you for joining… until next time!
