New Year - New Me
My name is Lori and I have a story to tell.
10 years ago, I was 39 and I was determined to be in the best shape of my life by my 40th Birthday.
I joined a gym and I trained religiously. I struck up a friendship with the owner (who was also a trainer) and he made a deal with me, if I got certified to be a trainer, and if I worked for him (behind the member service desk - and training clients) - he would train me for free. I agreed.
He put me through rigorous training sessions and made sure I ate well. By my 40th Birthday - I was ripped and in the best shape of my life. I was 135 lbs. and I was wearing a size 5 jeans. I felt good inside and out. I had confidence and I also met the man I ended up marrying at that same gym. Life was good.
Unfortunately as good as my boss was at training people - he wasn't a very good business man - the gym closed - and I ended up getting a sit down job in a warehouse office as a shipping clerk. My husband is type 1 diabetic, and we needed medical insurance so I had to do what I had to do.
In the last 9 years, I stopped training, my eating habits have been horrific at best...and I have gained 85 lbs. I went from the best shape of my life...to obese. Yes...I am currently 220 lbs. I feel HORRIBLE.
Now here I am at 49 and once again...I am DETERMINED to be the best I can be by my 50th birthday. It's a milestone after all. But THIS TIME I am going to stay at it - it's going to be a lifestyle change. My first step was purchasing my NutriBullet.
This week I also took my gym membership off freeze status and I actually went 3 times this week!!!
I am feeling better and better every day!!! Can't wait to post my before & after pics.
