Hello all…I think I’ve found my mojo! I went to the gym four days this week, cooked most of the week and consciously made smart choices when I did eat out! I realized if I just show up to the gym, I work and I work hard! Today I’m walking like an 80-year old lady because I went hard – I didn’t stop until my legs felt like J-E-L-L-O! I have a major case of DOMS and I’m loving it!
Another highlight to my week was seeing my former trainer, and now Biggest Loser trainer, Dolvett Quince. My daughter always makes the comment about how weird it is seeing him on TV when we know him in real life. LOL! It was surreal – it always is! He’s such a great person and I’m so happy for all of his success; I wish him nothing but the best. I’ve attached a few pictures from his book signing. I trained with him and his trainers back in 2009 and 2010, when I was getting close to my military weight of 144 lbs (pure muscle), and I let all that hard work slip away. It was a bit embarrassing to see him in my current state, but it did ignite a fire in me to get fit and make a lifetime, lifestyle change. Change is hard, but I am finding my way daily.
The holidays will be a true testament to my determination and I’ve already got a jumpstart on things! Last night I chatted with my sister-in-law about the Christmas dinner menu…and mentioned that I would like to incorporate some healthy sides and snacks into the menu. She was completely on board and asked me to send my recommendations. I am even getting the kids involved, by making some healthy fruit snacks that are cute to make and look at, and tasty to eat!
I’m super motivated, I cannot wait to see how things progress!!
Until next time…
