Taking a Break

There is so much going on personally that I am taking a little break here until June 1, 2021. Just on the blog here at God, fitness, and Mental Illness. I WILL be back and when I do there will be so much going on. On June 1, 2021 you will find a $1000 giveaway…

What is the Freeze Response?

What is the Freeze Response?

Most of us already know and understand the fight or flight response that we experience when we perceive a threat. Regardless of whether that thread is real or imagined our body gets a surge of adrenaline making our hearts beat faster. I always thought mine was broken but it’s not. I experience a freeze response.

OH HI! I’M RITA!

I’m so happy you’re here!

I have mental illness! Add in my struggles with both my faith and fitness and you have a hot mess. Life isn’t about sunshine and roses and my hot mess is one I fought hard to achieve. Join me on this journey.

welcome to god fitness & mental illness


Struggling with mental illness is difficult enough. Add in struggling with weight and fitness not to mention with faith and you can easily slip through the cracks.

I did for a number of years. In fact, it took nearly ending it all before any help was received. After that I hid behind the laughter and and smiles for years. Still do sometimes.

That’s why I write here. I share my struggles and story openly in the hopes someone who needs to hear it will.
