Just over 2 years ago I set forth on a journey to make change in my life. I wanted to feel different, I wanted some OOMPH back, to have energy and not feel like I was dragging my feet through my days, and I wanted to recognize the girl starring back at me in the mirror.
I had many false starts along the way, but on May 11, 2010 I started MOVING and I haven’t looked back since. I can honestly say I have not taken a week off in the last two years! Even on a cruise, I brought my running shoes and got my sweat on. I have discovered an absolute love for the way my body feels when I am sweating, moving and pushing myself. I love setting goals big and small and achieving them, whether it be getting to ten push ups from my toes or running my first full marathon. There is something so empowering about setting your sights on a goal and going for it!
In the last 2 years I have run my first 5km race and my first Marathon, lost just over a 100 pounds, achieved my personal training certification and started my own business helping other women. My husband has joined me, and has run his first marathon (2 actually)! Our family’s life has changed dramatically. I have gone from a tired mom, who’s back ached standing in line at the grocery store, to a mother that does yoga in the park with her kids and actually likes running around the park playing tag. My daughter even drew me a picture of a dumbbell as a gift the other day.
Life feels pretty darn good right now! My goal with Fit Mom in Barrhaven is to empower and guide other women in a similar journey. Which is why I am so excited to be running this Kick Start class with Jayda Siggers this summer.
I think its the perfect class to help Kick Start your own journey, no matter where your starting from. This is the class that will get you moving, and having fun, that will build the momentum needed to make CHANGE in your life. You will meet other like minded people, and have the support of your peers as well as a personal trainer and health counsellor.
You all know I love to exercise, and I am very lucky that I had that “click” right away. But what really took a long time to “click” for me was the food part of this journey. I truly would have loved to have had guidance from someone like Jayda, like those of you in the class will have.
Together Jayda and I are ready to help Kick Start your journey to Wellness with our love and enthusiasm for healthy living and feeling good. So who’s ready to make that JUMP and have some FUN doing it!
