My fitness journey is one that many of you may be able to relate to. I continue to put my story out there as a way to connect with others and, perhaps, help another person who wants to change their lifestyle. My journey started 4 years ago when I decided I could no longer go on being overweight, tired, and unhappy. I am a licensed physical therapist. I was promoting wellness and health in my every day interactions with patients, but I wasn’t living that lifestyle. I also had so much guilt being a working mother and wife that I denied my own needs in favor of taking care of my family when I wasn’t working. This resulted in me being sedentary, out-of-shape, and miserable. I felt a disconnect between my profession as a PT and how I looked and felt.
I knew it wouldn’t be long before I developed chronic health problems such as type-II diabetes and high blood pressure. I also knew I could end up like the many patients I served as a PT, in so much pain they can’t get out of bed and unable to lose weight without being able to move. I made a commitment to myself four years ago and I’m still at it! I am in engaged in life and not just sitting on the sidelines. I am happy to say I am a Spartan, fitness ompetitor, and now a Strong by Zumba certified instructor. I think it’s important to have accountability to keep yourself going. Sign up for that race, commit to pushing yourself, don’t be afraid of a challenge. Be an active participant in your life and not just a spectator.itate molestiae. Laboriosam molestias eaque ut sit modi quam qui. Eligendi pariatur omnis.
