Fit to Flab in 10 years

I used to eat healthy, juice daily, go to high-level aerobics classes followed by couple’s dance classes 4 to 5 nights a week. I rode my horse on trail rides and could keep up with a man building fence and working outdoors. I was tough, fit, and felt good about my body and my taunt figure. I thought this was the way I would live my entire life. Enter corporate America, 60-100 hour work weeks, high stress, fast living and no time to exercise, eat healthy or even to catch my breath.

I used to eat healthy, juice daily, go to high-level aerobics classes followed by couple’s dance classes 4 to 5 nights a week. I rode my horse on trail rides and could keep up with a man building fence and working outdoors. I was tough, fit, and felt good about my body and my taunt figure. I thought this was the way I would live my entire life. Enter corporate America, 60-100 hour work weeks, high stress, fast living and no time to exercise, eat healthy or even to catch my breath. Next came health problems; 4 sleep disorders, low thyroid, anxiety, high cholesterol, hormone imbalance issues. Today, I am very overweight, never exercise, move like a sloth, eat whatever is handy and can barely face my new reality. I am ready to be another amazing story of success and triumph among the rest of your inspiring stories. I have never dieted before and do not want to “diet.” This Sparks program is the first one that has really caught my interest. Here I go!!

It is very time consuming training dogs but well worth it in the long run. My trainer also does only positive reinforcement for training my mobility service dog. It really bothers me when I see trainers being mean to scare a dog into training. Twilite is only 18 months old and does the picking up and bringing items to me, she goes everywhere with me and does light bracing (due to her age). If you would like to follow her please add me as a friend :) Twilite is a standard poodle.
