"I am a proud Wife and Mother of 2 boys. My older son was born with Special Needs. After having to quit my job outside the home to care for him, countless time at the Hospital with him, 2 years of surgeries for him and another pregnancy; I was overweight, tired, unhealthy, depressed and in desperate need of something that was "just mine," yet didn't take anything away from my family.
Six months after giving birth to our 2nd child, I was ready for a big change.
I joined Fitness Edge Boot Camp at the end of 2005 with one goal ~ to fit into pants from High School. Looking back, shooting for only a certain pant size was completely underestimating my potential but at the time, it was something to look forward to. I was never a runner and would have never called myself athletic. I didn't know how to read food labels. I ate and fed my family the same foods I grew up on. I didn't know how to set goals for myself. I just lived life day to day and took care of my family.
Since joining Cheryl's program I have not only lost 2 pant sizes, I have participated in 3 Mud Runs and completed my 1st Half Marathon. I now know which foods are the truly the healthiest to feed my family. I have learned about the power of the mind and how to set goals for myself and reach them. And, I have learned the most important lesson ever ~ "Being healthy and happy comes from the inside out, not the other way around."
I no longer struggle with crazy fad diets, "magic" pills and drinks guaranteed to make you thin, or the need to look like people in magazines. With Cheryl's Boot Camp I've learned to appreciate not only my own individuality, but that of others. I strive to share these lessons with others, to always be encouraging and supportive, and hope to give back some of the wonderful gifts that have come into my life through the people I have met and formed relationships with at Fitness Edge Boot Camp.
I believe to be inspiring, you must be willing to share your real heart and to be inspired - you must first take the time to see the beauty in something you would have otherwise not bothered to notice. Life is a gift, health is a blessing, and the choice to take care of them both belongs to every one of us!"
