After loosing 55+ pounds people ask me how I did it…the answer they get is not typical. But, how I did it was simple…I changed my MINDSET! I shifted how I thought about food, exercise, weight, etc…and the rest followed. Once I made that shift, my eating habits changed to clean eating, even vegetarian and vegan for a while. This change helped me to drop the first 20 pounds.
Next up, I incorporated exercise. But not just exercise…exercise with accountability. I joined a running club, had my friends meet me for group fitness classes & told people my goals. With this I was held accountable to my workouts by those around me. Now, as a wellness coach, I focus on this with my clients…ACCOUNTABILITY…this is SO key to meeting goals! With both CONSISTENT exercise and healthy eating, the rest of the weight came off.
During this journey, I have found another level of strength, courage and determination that I didn’t know existed. I fell in love with group fitness and became a certified group fitness instructor as well as earned certifications/licenses in Zumba, hip hop dance fitness, kickboxing, indoor cycling/SPIN and completed 3 half marathons.
Healthy living is now a passion and through my fitness company, Zenergy Fitness, my goal is to help and inspire others to reach their goals. So, what’s my next big goal? Completing a Century Bike Ride/Race…100 miles in the saddle! uh…oh…it’s out there in the universe now…accountability time! 🙂
