It all started with the pic of my melting leg.
I was pushing close to 190 pounds — always tired. Couldn’t run and play with my kids. I had no energy and I did NOT look hawt. So I started walking and counting calories, and lost a tad bit of weight. But I didn’t get wise to snapping an official “before” pic until early that next year:
Eventually I starting running and added weight training. By the time January 2010 rolled around, although I wasn’t quite “there” yet (because I wasn’t consistent), I got to a point where I at least felt pretty good, gained confidence, and believed I could see this thing through to the end:
It wasn’t until I kicked my workouts into consistent high gear in early 2011 and seriously dedicated myself to clean eating — that’s when major results began to unfold…
My mid-section promises to never be perfect, but I feel good about my fitness journey and I will NEVER end my dedication to living healthy and moving my body to stay fit.
It honestly could have taken me a lot less time to get to where I am today, but this longer route (my journey) was one that took time for me to develop discipline with food and find a workout style that was right for me: HIIT, Plyometrics and strength training.
Don’t wait to get started on your own journey. Work hard. Make it count. And never, ever quit.
