Success Saturday: Pam G.

Pam and I have been online running friends for a while now. Her fitness journey has been been one of determination! Her change both inside and out has been pretty awesome to watch! I’m really proud to have her as one of my coaches and on my team as well.

1. Why did you decide to lose weight/change your lifestyle? (Any and all reasons)
I decided to change my lifestyle because I wanted to make sure that I was healthy enough to play with my grandchildren as I do with my children. That was the main reason, the secondary reason was because I was hitting 30 and the weight wasn’t staying off…. I knew that it was time to change what I was doing.

2. What exercise did you do? (List everything)
I started with walking and elliptical, and then went to running. I currently still run, but have added different cross training workout programs, like Turbo Fire, Hip Hop Abs, and Brazil Butt Lift Master Series.
3. How did you change your eating?
With my eating, I have become way more conscious of portion control, and I am trying to eat less processed foods.
4. Did you use any nutritional supplements?
The only nutritional supplements I use is B12, and I drink Shakeology everyday.
5. Did you have support? (Group, friend, online community, etc.)
I have some awesome support with my coaches, and my online challenge groups. I also have a wonderful running partner that does every race with me.
6. What do you feel is the top thing you’ve gotten out of your journey?
The top thing that I have gotten out of my journey is my change of mindset. I am now more confident and I feel so much better!! I know that I can do what I want to and I will succeed.
7. What is your next goal?
My next goal is to run another marathon within my goal time of 5 hours. I also want to continue to tone and become more healthy.

Lean & Mean in ’13

My HOT FOR HALLOWEEN challengers are kicking butt! Inspired by them, I wanted to host another virtual challenge. Introducing…Lean and Mean in ’13, starting November 1!

I truly want you to not have a “lose weight” or “get back in shape” resolution for 2013. If you have a fitness and/or nutrition goal for 2013, I honestly want it to be you getting better on the foundation you already have. THAT is what my 60 day challenge will be completely about…setting good habits with the right tools and support from me, your coach, and a group of other people working so hard toward a similar goal. There’s only 83 days left of 2012. Eeek!!!

 

Each confirmed participant will also be entered into a drawing for my “Start 2013 Lean and Mean” fitness & nutrition basket giveaway in mid December. If you’re interested, please email me at jockinaskirt@gmail.com  The 60 Day challenge starts November 1!
