“I couldn’t lose the

weight on my own”

I have always been out-going and athletic, trying any sport that came my way.  I wasn’t afraid of any challenge.  But after only four years of marriage, I gained 55 lbs and became very self-conscience of my weight which affected my athletic ability.  I turned inward not wanting to participate in anything.  I used to run and knew something was drastically wrong when I couldn’t even complete one lap around the track without wheezing and gasping for air. 

I “let myself go”.  I stopped exercising and ate anything I wanted.  Anything includes ice-cream every night of the week.  Then I’d try to diet and exercise a little only to be discouraged when I didn’t get the results quickly enough for my standards.  I went back and forth between these two states of mind.  In the meantime, I lost a ton of muscle mass and gained a ton of fat weight.

I saw a testimonial from RobZFitness in the Osprey Observer and took notice because I just happened to know the guy in the testimonial.  I looked at my husband and said; “Honey, if we want to go on a cruise for our 5th anniversary, I’ve got to do something.  Because if I look like this, I won’t be going on any cruise!”  I knew I needed help and couldn’t lose the weight on my own. 

Calling Rob at RobZFitness was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life.  I can’t believe how good and strong I feel.  I started with a body fat percentage of 37.4% and in better shape than only 3% of women my age. In three months time, I lost 25 lbs and 17.42 total inches; 10 inches just off my waist and hips alone.  Now only 25% of my body is fat and I am in better shape than 40% of women my age.  

I had the fortunate opportunity to train with all five trainers but worked mostly with Rob and Davie.  I always looked forward to when I trained next because I had fun!  Although I am saddened that my time at RobZFitness is complete, I know I can take what I’ve learned and continue with my new healthy life style.  I no longer gasp and wheeze for air and feel strong enough to continue to decrease my body fat.  I still plan on losing 20 more lbs. and now I have the confidence to do it on my own. I WILL be stronger than most women my age this time next year when I turn 40.  For me, forty will be the new 30!

Don’t Buy Junk Foods

NoJunkFoodMany people ask me how to quickly and easily get fit. While I know they are hoping for a simple answer, the reality is that getting and staying fit is a lifestyle, not a quick fix.

So what do fit people do in their “healthy lifestyle”?

Fit Habit #1: They Don’t Buy Junk

Fit people know that if they keep junk food in the house they will eat it sooner or later. So they don’t buy any. Even buying junk food for your kids or spouse is not advised since 1) you’ll likely eat some of it eventually, and 2) your loved ones shouldn’t be eating that junk either. It’s called junk for a reason.

Rid your home of chips, cookies, candy, baked goods, pre-packaged snacks and anything else that belongs in a vending machine. Replace the above with fresh fruit, veggies, nuts and other healthy whole foods snacks.
