As you all know I have been working out with a trainer since December of last year. To date I have lost 37 lbs. I am happy!!!! I still have about thirty more to loose.....maybe twenty depending on how my body shapes up. I am 42!!!!!!!
I feel better than I have in a long time.......a REALLY long time! I sometimes can't believe that I have hung in there this long. It's hard and now this summer it is HOT in that gym! When it's a 100 degrees outside it's even hotter in the gym. I have not gotten sick or passed out one time! Came close but have hung in there and finished each workout.
I have more confidence than I have in years. Some might say that I am addicted to working out now! I look forward to going and am ready for September when I go back to five days a week with my trainer.
Speaking of my trainer/trainers.......they are the best! I seriously think God sent them to me at just the right time. My new trainer is Lauren! She is small but TOUGH! I LOVE her! She pushes me and believes in me. She used to be a softball player and is married to a football coach at TAMUK and loves cross fit/ working out! She has showed me how to love myself and believe in myself no matter what age I am or where I am at in my fitness journey!
|This is Lauren!!!!!|
|LOOK at that back!!!!! Mine will look that good SOON!|
I was embarrassed to tell them my goal but they didn't blink an eye. They believe in me more than I believe in myself!
So here is my new goal.........
I am going to TRAIN to do a bikini competition! Now before anyone freaks out hear me out! I KNOW that it's not going to be easy. I KNOW that I have a lot of work to do. I KNOW that I have to watch everything that goes into my mouth. I KNOW that I might never be ready BUT I am going to give it my best shot! I have never set a goal this big for myself. I am so excited.
I am also a very conservative person and putting on that bathing suit and walking onto that stage in front of a lot of people will probably be the hardest part for me. I am still working on that part in my mind!
I will keep you guys posted. I am going to post all of my new before pictures in the next couple of days so check back!!!!
Battle on The Bay- July 2016.........that is my goal!!!!
