Phase 1: Running a lot, softer, no muscle, and eating junk. (Trying to outwork my bad diet)
Phase 2: Still running a lot, skinny, no muscle, and not eating. (Trying to starve myself to be fit)
To get me to this magical number I had in my head of 135 pounds, I thought food was evil and running was going to save me. I was running up to 6-7 miles a day and eating 2 meals a day.
Running and food is how I always dealt with insecurities.
I ran to escape and when running didn't work, I ate. Then I would feel bad about eating and starve myself.
Always this back and forth cycle of too much or not enough. Also known as the Yo Yo diet.
I felt STUCK!
The day came when Gold's Gym in my hometown had their 12-week challenge (2012). I signed up to see what I was capable of...
I started to track my food, laid off the oreos, and started to eat more whole food.
After all of that change in nutrition, workout style, and lifestyle, here's the crazy thing, I currently weigh 158.
My goal weight was 135, so you'd think I messed up right?!
But 138 pounds of my weight is muscle now!
If you take one thing from my story, take this one lesson.
Fitness is 90% mental and 10% physical, you need to dig deep and find what motivates you and what will help you change.
You have been doing it one way for a very long time, and it will not change quickly. But when it's all done, you have to ask yourself.
Is this something I can sustain for the rest of my life? Am I happy?
Does this make me feel good?
If any of those answers are no, something needs to change. I created TFL Trainer to teach women how to live with a balance between fitness and life.
I've taken my years of experience working with clients to get the same amazing results I had, and created the BEST program there is to break the cycle, lose weight, and love yourself.
I want the same for you.
