I get asked fairly often about what I’ve done to lose weight. There is no special formula, trick or diet. It really is working out and changing your eating habits.
When I made the decision to get healthy I made a commitment to myself and no one else. I started working out doing boot camp classes and completely overhauled my eating habits. It was the hardest decision and commitment that I have done for myself because I never made myself a priority before.
The workouts were excruciating and I felt like puking every time. My coaches and my fellow classmates got me through but more importantly, I felt amazing when I was done. I had accomplished something huge for myself and I kept going back.
I am no longer doing the boot camp classes but have taken up running, walking and yoga. This is something I can do when I want without having to be at class at a specific time and it can be done anywhere.
The important thing is that you are doing what works for you. If you do not enjoy your workout, you will not continue to do it. Even though I don’t do the high intensity workouts anymore it taught me how much I can do which is so valuable.
I know one day I will go back to the high intensity work outs because it works!
