I’ve spent most of my life concerned about my weight and not exercising.
I went to Weight Watchers at age 15 years old.
I used to call myself, “a fat blob.”
As I entered midlife, I developed a passion for health and fitness.
I lost the weight.
I started exercising.
I no longer struggle with diets or stress about food. I have maintained my appropriate body weight for years.
Motivated by a diagnosis of osteoporosis over 15 years ago, exercise is an integral part of my life.
I became an avid walker and started my running career in my 50s –it’s never too late! I have now run over 80 races that include over a dozen half marathons. I also have been an assistant Half Marathon coach for a local running group.
Strength training, swimming and meditation are also important elements in my self-care routine.
I certified through The Cooper Institute in Dallas, Texas, & SCW Fitness Education as a personal trainer and trained women for years.
Additionally, I certified with the National Posture Institute.
Significantly, I trained with the premier Life Coach School and hold my certification as a Life & Weight Coach. Understanding how our minds and thoughts directly affect how we feel and act in our lives has been a game changer.
