Strong Mom, Strong Family
Guest blog post by Transformation Tuesday success April Ames…
I lost my dad June 24,2010 to medical conditions related to being overweight. He was 56.
I didn’t want my son to loose his mother at a young age. I decided at that time to improve my health. I went on a 6 year roller coaster of diets and workout programs.
I would stick to it for a little while, but didn’t see results quick enough or I would get sore and take a day off… that turned into a few days.
I could never stick to any fitness plan.
It was a constant internal battle. Every time I failed a workout regimen, I felt like I failed him.
I kept seeing posts on Facebook from my son’s first grade teacher Kristen Zammit about LiveFit. I would see the posts and would consider trying it out. This went on for a few months!
By this time the holidays were approaching. I almost waited until January to start, but that was the same pattern I had always done.
So the week of Thanksgiving, I went on website and signed up for the 2 week trial.
I started on Nov. 25, 2016, the day after Thanksgiving and also the day after what would have been my dad’s birthday.
Ever since then I have gone to bootcamp at LiveFit at least 5 days a week.
One of my most defining moments was when I realized how easily I did a tire push after needing someone’s assistance a few months earlier.
The amazing support the LiveFit community is there every step of your journey. This time around during the times I was so sore I thought about stopping, but I would tell myself to “trust in the process”.
