Mother Fitness Revolution

Rethink Fitness and Food

 


I am so glad you’ve decided to join me on the Mother Fitness Revolution. My name is Kellie Davis, and not long ago I stood in a very lonely place. I was unhappy with my body and my lifestyle. I let my schedule rule my days and put everyone’s needs in front of my own. One day I have an epiphany that changed my plan of action. I said to myself, “wake up, sister. This ain’t working and YOU need to fix it.”

Soon I began devouring every bit of diet and exercise literature out there. I cleaned out my pantry filled with processed fatty foods, and filled my fridge with fresh veggies and lean meat. I made a point to hit the gym at least 3 hours a week, and soon I saw results.

After I started seeing great progress, I decided to compete as an NPC Figure Athlete. Boy, was I in for a rough trek. I went down a rocky and narrow path that left me starved and depleted after my first show. From that point on, I realized that I was going about things all wrong. I needed to nourish my body from the inside out, rather than only focusing on what the mirror reflected.

The day I brought my son home I weighted 165 pounds.

After 4 Months of Training Mother Fitness

This was me after 4 months of intense training.

I looked better than ever, but I felt run down and unhealthy. So, I decided to reflect on why I was making these changes. It wasn’t just because I wanted to look hot in a bikini. It wasn’t just because I wanted to feel good about how I looked. It was because I wanted to feel good when I woke up in the morning, be in better moods, have more energy for my husband and children, and be a strong, confident woman.

Once I got my priorities straight, things starting looking up. I trained for a second show on my own and felt really good about my overall healthy and fitness level. Here’s a photo of me during my second NPC Figure Competition. I placed 3rd in my class:

After my second show, it was time for more self-evaluation. I didn’t want my “ideal self” to get in the way of my real self. Essentially, I needed to stop letting my changes control me.

So, I came up with a personal philosophy to which I strongly adhere:

  • Competing is the reward for my hard work. I don’t work hard to compete.
  • I am a wife, a mother, a writer, a friend, a sister, a daughter, then a competitor. I will not let my competing interfere with the other important parts of my life.
  • I love my body. I eat to nourish it, to build and repair tissue, to improve the function of my vital organs, to provide energy for my day, to increase my longevity. I do not eat to deprive, to malnourish, to obsess, or to damage my body.
  • Training is a habit. It is a part of who I am. I go to the gym as part of my daily routine and do not alter my life around my gym schedule.

I stick to this philosophy every single day and always prioritize my life.

Everyday, I am grateful for my husband and kids who believe in me even when I doubted myself; who are the foundation of my very being.

Everyday, I am grateful for my true friends who provide daily laugher, joy, and comfort.

Everyday, I am grateful for my health.
