One trick I use is to buy a gift certificate for a store that I can’t fit into. This motivates me. I keep in my purse so I keep my eyes on the prize. If I get in a pinch without something to eat I’ll order a plain grilled chicken breast at McDonalds. It takes them awhile to figure out that I don’t want the bun! Sometimes it’s just as fast to run into the grocery store to pick up slices of turkey, tomato, and a water bottle. There is no excuse! I used to have a couple of pieces of toast and a couple of eggs for breakfast. The smell of my husband cooking these things gives me and my trainer a good laugh in the morning while we work out. I have plain fat free Greek yogurt or egg whites for breakfast now.
I’ve figured out how to set a little bit of movement into little bits of time. Rather than sit while my kids are at their activities I go outside for some walking or hiking. I do little bits of exercises at home. I am pretty much always in workout clothes so that it’s easy to fit something in real quick. I’ve lost 39 lbs. in just under a year. I really have changed so much and I want these to be forever changes. I don’t mind if I am going a little bit slower than some. I’m bringing my family with me. My kids are making healthier choices. I call us: Team WOW. We are all Working On Wellness. I don’t deprive them of all treats, but I am teaching them moderation and balancing out exercise with mostly healthy food choices.
My trainer Kim is very easygoing. She understands my sense of humor and I ‘fire’ her at least once a session. It’s a joke between us and she doesn’t take me too seriously. She is very positive. She hasn’t pushed me beyond comfort level with my knees. She takes my concerns seriously. I needed someone that I could trust somebody to not hurt me. Kim has been that person for me.
I reside in Brookline, NH. My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family and my friends. We love to entertain. I am pretty loud and love to laugh. I love to swim and kayak. Kim and I like to laugh and stay relaxed. My faith is very important to me. I love being outside. I love signing up for a race, mud or otherwise! Both of my parents passed away from cancer. That really made me start thinking about my health. I will turn something bad into a new beginning for me and my 8 children."
