It has been quite awhile since I have made an entry…we can all see how my new years resolution went!¬ ¬†
I wanted to share¬†some of¬†my journey these past few months…last very happy months personally.¬† I have two small children, 4 & 2 years old, and since giving birth I have found myself out of MY shape, out of¬† (hours at) the gym, running around crazy taking care of the kids/husband/dog, managing a business, personal training clients, meal planning, making meals, cleaning, running the kids around, the list goes on and on and on-as we all know!!¬† Before this took control of me and I look back 10 years from now wondering where all the time went…how did I get here…I took control.
This past winter I was getting beyond myself with personal disgust as the way I looked and how “out of shape” I was.¬† (This is me Now vs Michele @20′s something–I cannot quit comparing myself to then!–but, that is when I was in the best shape of my life).¬† I had about 20 pounds to lose until I was personally happy.¬† I turned 32 in February and decided the time is now.¬† At the beginning of March, I started completing two sessions of 30 minutes low impact cardio a day, REALLY paying attention to my diet and started eating right.¬† I added body weight exercises to my routine and stuck to the program, every day, every week, every month.¬† I was ready to feel good again, to feel like me again.¬† Today, 3 months later, I have lost a total of 25lbs and have¬†LOST 15% bodyfat (bye-bye!!).¬† I am officially pre-pregnancy weight, I have lower body fat % then I had 4 years ago and can honestly say I am in the best shape in 5 years I have been,¬† since competition days myself!!¬† I¬†am happy with the¬†new me.¬† I am not 100% satisfied, but who is!¬† To me, that means there is room for improvement.¬† I am not sure what I want to do and why I am doing this other than for the simple fact that I can and I did…and you can too.¬†¬† How do I know…Because I have 10 clients who have come along and done the exact same program as me, same¬†amount of time¬†and have had¬†the same¬†positive results as I have!¬†
Don’t ever think it’s too late….don’t ever think that you can never look the way you “used” too.¬† You can.¬† You can do anything you put your mind to.¬† Get out there and do it!!
Have a healthy, happy week!!
