I decided then and there I would never again look like that. The transformation did not happen over night; it also did not come without a lot of hard work and dedication. I spent many hours at the gym doing zumba, weights, training sessions, running, swimming and biking. I made the decision to complete a triathlon. Why? Because it seemed impossible. I also spent countless hours reading about nutrition and recording what I ate, especially during the first year. Not to mention, life happens. I had 2 pregnancies during the last 3 years one which resulted in a miscarriage and the second which gave us our sweet baby girl. I did not waste a minute after Chloe was born. As soon as I was cleared for exercise, I purchased a road bike and began training...hard. Which resulted in a 1st place AG (age group) finish in my sprint triathlon! So here I am 3 years later, 60 lbs lighter, a triathlete and in 7 short weeks I will complete a half marathon...something that once seemed impossible. I am strong. I am determined. I am happy.
I CAN DO IT, YOU CAN TOO.
