For the past 3ish years I have been steadily gaining weight again. If you have see the beginning of my blog I have struggled with weight for about 10 years. Originally I went vegan and hit the elliptical hard for 1-2 hours a day then went to Costa Rica and Peru and hiked the Andes.
That is so not sustainable.
Then I continued on, found a great workout partner and friend and trained for and ran my first half marathon and did some obstacle races. Everything was going great and I felt great so I decided to hike the PCT, I intentionally put on some fat thinking i was going to lose a bunch of weight while hiking for 6 months, which would have happened…….if I finished the hike. After a week on the trail I realised hiking alone for 6 months wasn’t for me. (One day I will complete the trail with a partner).
Again..not sustainable. And since then my weight has crept back up. For the last 3 years it has been steadily climbing, I might have pushed it down a pound or two here and there or stopped the uptake but I never made really sustainable changes.
Until now, I have found Beachbody and an awesome coach and I am making a lifestyle change!
A shake everyday, 30-60min workout each day and an increase in healthy food in my diet.
The weight is falling off and it doesn’t even feel like I’m doing much! I love it!!
I feel amazing! My energy is increasing! My outlook is getting more upbeat!
I absolutely want to get back to running eventually but thisbis key first, to get a good sustainable routine going.
Life is good!!!!
If you want more details let me know! I am always looking for workout partners to join my Beachbody accountability group!
