My fitness journey is an ever evolving roller coaster, and I’m *mostly* ok with that.
I began training at Pro Fitness in 2009 and haven’t stopped (with the exception of being on bed rest while pregnant and post pregnancies). I began working with a trainer because I easily get lost and overwhelmed in the gym. I also need to have appointments or I will stop showing up after about a month.
When I started at Pro Fitness a decade ago, I wanted to lose some weight and within 9 months, I had met that goal. That was nice while it lasted, but in the past 10 years, including two pregnancies, I’ve gained that weight back and then some.
This past fall, I recommit myself to getting healthier. I continue to work out with Cindy twice a week and also ride a stationary bike at home 6 days a week. I am also working hard to find balance in my relationship with food. I am working on moderation, especially of sweets. I have always had a sweet tooth and while I have completely cut them out in the past, it doesn’t last and then I overindulge. Through doing this, I have lost about 25 pounds since fall.
My new goals are to continue with my workout program and continuing to chip away at my weight loss while moderating my sweet tooth.
