My transformation journey 10 years ago did not begin with a goal of losing weight. The thing that sparked my motivation was a Tough Mudder. Training at first was hard, running sucked and progress felt slow. But by the time I crossed that first finish line 3 months later, I was hooked.
Over that first 2 years I picked and tackled one fitness goal after another: half-marathon, Spartan race, bikini competition.
I lost over 50 pounds of fat, but transformed much more than my body. My aim was for health, strength, and the energy to live life as an active participant instead of a bystander.
I wanted to climb, cartwheel, and run with my kids. I wanted to instill in them the positive habits needed to take care of the one body we get while on this earth by teaching them how to balance healthy eating and exercise with the treats and relaxation we love to enjoy.
Fitness and nutrition are not a one-size-fits-all prescription but they are a benefit everyone can enjoy. It is about finding what fuels your motivation, learning to play again, and building nutrition habits and health goals that are both attainable and sustainable.
