What a journey
Saturday, January 29, 2011
So I have been doing the "spark" thing for a few years now. I have fallen off the wagon and then found my way to get back on. I have come a long way from where I started and now I am feeling a little lost. To back track a little let me just tell ya a bit about myself.
After I had my first child I reached a whopping 330lbs! Everyday I was finding it harder just to 'live', taking care of my new born or even walking up the few stairs in our house was a huge challenge! I then found some "spark" of motivation and decided to change my life. With watching what I was eating and adding in exercise, the weight started to drop off. I then got pregnant again! So after having my second baby, I found it harder to get back on track, and that is when I neighbor told me about this great little site called sparkpeople.com. Started to join groups, take on challenges, and watch my calories. Things started to look up again for me!
After all of coaxing and encouragement from friends, I decided to plunge myself into school to become a personal trainer.
So now years later here I sit, I am a personal trainer, group fitness instructor, and a health/fitness technician. My specialties are kickboxing, core-strength, and functional fitness.
So one would think that everything is fine and dandy right? Wrong! One huge part of my life is that I am a military spouse, so we move. I found my groove at the gym, teaching and training, and then before I knew it the rug was pulled out from underneath me!
Now I sit in my new house, with no gym and no fab clients to inspire to better myself while I help them to reach their fitness goals. So my question is this, what is a girl to do?
I know, so much to take in for a first time blogger! I have just been reading so many great blogs and commenting a few, and I guess I thought to myself, that maybe if I get my story out there some of you great spark people will have some ideas and inspiration for me!
So thanks to you all for all that you do! We work hard to keep ourselves healthy and fit, after all, our bodies are our temples and it's the only one we get.
