fordMy name is Asia Ford, and I am a Fitness Motivator.

Helping others through encouragement and example is my goal. I am determined to help as many as possible; live longer, healthier lives.

Along with being a Fitness Motivator; I am a mother of three, a customer service representative and a firm believer in the awesomeness of God. Often a competitor in local races. Helping others see their “worth” through healthy eating and exercise has become my passion. I am a very transparent person. I wrestle daily with real-life issues regarding healthy eating and fitness.

Born at 12 lbs. 11 ozs. I have struggled with obesity for most of my life; being overweight as a child on through my adult life. Fluctuating weight for years with my heaviest being 507 lbs. It was the decision of removing my children’s father’s hand to save his life from diabetes that began the transformation of my life. I stressed over the decision so, that it resulted in a quick loss of 32 lbs. Discouraged, yet determined that the same decision we made for my children’s father would not be my fate. I promised my children to be around. It was at my lowest point that I decided to join boot camp, with the help of a friend, the Aspirations bootcamp family and trainer Chris Vaughn. Each day seemed harder and harder. No weight loss, body aches, and a lack of confidence. This was because my work did not equal my worth.

For the first 6 months, even after a hour of boot camp {flipping tires, running, jumping, pushing cars and lifting weights} I failed because, I was still pulling into the local drive-thru restaurants. It wasn’t until my attitude of my worth and determination aligned that my journey changed. Many have come to know me from around the country as the “woman who didn’t quit” while finishing the last two mile of the Rhodes 10k Race in Louisville, KY. I am before you as a woman, who is grateful, encouraged and willing to FIGHT! Let’s Go! Let’s Get Healthy and Live! #ARF…I AM WORTH IT!  and so are you!

 kkkkk This is my story of how I plan on going from being obsessed with being fit, to fat in 6 months and how I plan on showing everyone how to get back to fit again in 6 more months. My diet will be unrestricted and I will refrain from any exercise during my fat stage. I plan on putting on around 50-60 pounds. After those 6 months, I will be teaching people how to get back in shape by allowing everyone to follow my specific meal plans and workout plans on this site. I will be documenting my progress every step of the way and blogging about it, from weekly pics, measurements, and even allowing people to decide what fatty foods I should partake of during my fat stage.

The Couch-to-5K ® Running Plan Our beginner’s running schedule has helped thousands of new runners get off the couch and onto the roads, running 3 miles in just two months.

By Josh Clark Posted Saturday, 1 January, 2011 http://www.coolrunning.com/cgi-bin/moxiebin/bm_tools.cgi?print=181;s=2_3;site=1

Too many people have been turned off of running simply by trying to start off too fast.  Their bodies rebel, and they wind up miserable, wondering why anyone would possibly want to do this to themselves.

You should ease into your running program gradually.  In fact, the beginners’ program we outline here is less of a running regimen than a walking and jogging program.  The idea is to transform you from couch potato to runner, getting you running three miles (or 5K) on a regular basis in just two months.

It’s easy to get impatient, and you may feel tempted to skip ahead in the program, but hold yourself back.  Don’t try to do more, even if you feel you can.  If, on the other hand, you find the program too strenuous, just stretch it out.  Don’t feel pressured to continue faster than you’re able.  Repeat weeks if needed and move ahead only when you feel you’re ready.

A few minutes each week

Each session should take about 20 or 30 minutes, three times a week.  That just happens to be the same amount of moderate exercise recommended by numerous studies for optimum fitness.  This program will get you fit.  (Runners who do more than this amount are doing it for more than fitness, and before long you might find yourself doing the same as well).

Be sure to space out these three days throughout the week to give yourself a chance to rest and recover between efforts.  And don’t worry about how fast you’re going.  Running faster can wait until your bones are stronger and your body is fitter. For now focus on gradually increasing the time or distance you run.

Run for time, or run for distance

There are two ways to follow this program, to measure your runs by time or by distance.  Either one works just as well, choose the option that seems easiest for you to keep track of.  If you go with the distance option, and you are not using a track to measure the distances, just estimate.  It’s not important to have the distances absolutely exact.
