For me, exercise has become a way of life. I get up, get my family organized, and I head to the gym where I have made some amazing friends.
I said to myself a few years ago I was sick of the yo-yo dieting with my weight going up and down and made a commitment to stop that habit.
I have done some challenges along the way to keep me on track, but for the most part I’ve had to learn to accept my body for how it is, and I feel a lot happier and content for it. I know I am never going to be a size 8 and I have finally accepted that. I am fit and strong and proud of that. Moderation is the key and I do not go without cheat days here and there, but I do make good choices most of the time.
When I got my Myzone belt it changed my training for sure. It kept me focused and I was able to see what training zone I was in all the time. I did get a bit obsessed at first and putting my belt on has become a daily habit for me now. I definitely do not want to lose all my hard work as I am at gold level now, so I am working to keep my training on track even throughout times like the holidays where I used to let myself go. I felt as though every start of the year I was chasing the damage I had done over Christmas, but no more of that for me, thanks to Myzone.
So, therefore, over this isolation period I made a commitment to myself to keep up my training at home each day. I have no equipment beside my belt and my matt. I started doing the F45 online body resistance training and well let’s just say, it’s keeping me on track. In fact, I’m loving it. I never thought I would do anything at home, and I’m surprised that I don’t even need weights.
I honestly did not believe the email when I found out I had won. Especially as it is a global competition. What are the chances? It makes me feel proud that I have kept up my training despite the difficult conditions the world is in. The $500 will most likely go toward new a new gym outfit and runners. I love my active wear. Thanks again!
