“MY BIRTHDAY PRESENT WAS 1 MONTH OF PERSONAL TRAINING!”
After turning 30, I decided to give myself 1 month of personal training as a birthday present. Weights and gyms were out of my comfort zone and after reading every Men’s Health article I was more confused on what to do! I started with 3 sessions a week , followed instructions on what to do and eat on off days. I am now 40 getting close to 40, more fit, leaner, and more confident. And I still workout with Jeff!! Best thing I ever did for myself!
“I’VE LOST A TOTAL OF 30 LBS AND EVEN LOST ALL THE FAT DIMPLES ON MY DERRIERE AND LEGS!”
The truth was and I say (was) getting fat, fat, fat… I’m 38 years old and I was not happy with the direction my body was heading. At 179 lbs I had known for quite sometime I needed to do something about my weight. I always had some type of excuse, I work 40 hours a week, I have children, I cook, clean; I’m busy or just plain exhausted, ect..ect.. Excuse after excuse. There was a bunch of things that I wanted to do but my health and physic had already limited my activities. Example, I wanted to spend all day at the Water Park with the children, run around and play. Instead I basked in the sun pretending the chaffing on my legs didn’t hurt from just the walk in the park. My bathing suites were cute (as can be expected) but it was the beach towel that I wore over my suite that became my new style of swimwear. I was completely ashamed of my body so I just covered it up.
On October 1st 2010 it hit me, I was finally sick and tired of being sick and tired of the way I looked. I knew I needed help. So I started to do a search for a personal trainer. I set myself up an appointment with Jeff and we decided to do 3 days a week for 8 weeks, otherwise known as “Boot Camp”. I will tell you especially in the beginning if I didn’t have Jeff as a trainer, motivator, educator I could have not done and I say (done) this alone. The first day (1 hour) I was crawling on the floor, hugging gym equipment. I was so out of shape that I completely embarrassed myself or so I thought. Jeff and I evaluated my diet, set caloric goals and at home cardio. If Jeff didn’t push me to complete my repetitions in our sessions I know I would have never accomplished this type of effort on my own, no way, No Way..!!
February 4, 2011, thirteen days away from my 39th birthday, And I weigh 149 lbs!! I’ve lost a total of 30 lbs. I’ve gained muscle, I wear a size 8 pant I use to be a 14. I’ve even lost all the fat dimples on my derrière and legs “Bye Bye, Cellulite and… Look out Water Park ”… and I’ll leave the towel in the car!
