About me

Who I am

My name is Diatta Harris and I’m a 40-something wife, mother of 2 and career woman who is constantly inspired by anything fitness related.  My professional background includes a Master of Healthcare Administration and Master of Business Administration.  I am also a project management professional by trade in the healthcare IT space.  As you can see, I have created a life and career around healthcare.

What I call myself

I consider myself a fitness enthusiast and love researching anything that will help me get better fit mentally, physically and spiritually.  I also like sharing this special information with others as it is better to give than to receive.

My motivation

In 2005 I started running with a former co-worker who was diagnosed and fighting breast cancer.  She WON!  I was so inspired by her we started running together every week on the NCR trail in Maryland.  Fast forward to 2008 – I met up with a friend I had not seen in a few years and she looked FANTASTIC!  She was fit and trim and was generous enough to share with me her secret weapon.  Her trainer who worked at Brick Bodies.

I quickly got her name and started working out with her for about 6 months from 2008 to 2009.  I then began working out on my own in my home gym but it wasn’t the same.  I reunited with my trainer April 2011 and have continued to train with her 2 times a week, 30 minute sessions each.  And let me just say she makes me EARN IT!

Why I started this blog

I want to share my passion for wellness and fitness with all of you to encourage you to live the most healthy lifestyle you can.  I hope some of you are also encouraged and willing to share your fitness journey through the mountains and valleys to help inspire others who feel it too daunting a task to be fit in conjunction with managing a balanced life.

What inspires me

I am constantly inspired when I meet and talk to folks who are also into fitness whether professionally or recreationally!  I am impresed with those who have taken the time and have the discipline to make their bodies perfection inside and out with proper nutrition and workouts.  What I find, I want to share with YOU!  Who I meet, I want to introduce to YOU!  I am excited to be here and hope you choose to join me in this journey.  Nothing ventured, nothing gained!  Let’s GO!
