- I’m a mother
- Fitness addict
I have been through a lot in my life and I thought it would be good to share what I know. How things feel, tips and other things to get through this crazy road of life. I’m a single mom to two boys- one of which with autism. This two boys thing? Yeah, it can be crazy, frustrating, aging and rewarding.
I’ve transformed my life in the last almost 4 years (April 2018 will be 4 years) I wasn’t happy being where I was weighing close to 300 lbs. I woke up on a random day and just decided. “Hey I don’t want to be morbidly obese anymore” trial and error (like a lot) and I have lost 100 lbs on my own and transformed my body, pointing it in the direction I want to go.
I train 6 times a week and am being a Guinea pig for my own plans until I can master them and be certified to help others.
My favorite things in the gym to do are
- Lifting- think the weights and I are soul mates
I go to school full time for Recreation and leisure and Fitness and Health Promotion. If I thought single mom life was difficult, it was nothing. compared to adding in full-time school. Beautiful chaos at best, but I work hard at getting everything done.
I’m a survivor of both domestic and childhood traumas, it changes a person good and bad. I am in therapy to help deal with my past and to be able to live the best future I can.
I’m a fighter with everything I do. Passed every struggle, roadblock and hang up in this thing called life. I’ve fought with an eating disorder on each end of the spectrum undereating to overeating. Fight with PTSD and Anxiety daily. I know what it’s like to feel defeated, lost, hopelessness, and angry. I do, however, know what it feels like to be happy, proud, and grateful.
I’d also like to lend a helping hand to others along the way, in similar situations, or who just needs to know someone’s in their corner, that they are not alone.
