Q: Have you always lived a healthy fit lifestyle?
Not at all. My healthy/fit lifestyle has come and gone over the years, but it is back to stay now. Probably my healthiest time was 2000-2001. I was going to the gym 5-6 times per week and watching what I ate. But I didn’t find activities that I enjoyed; I was just going through the motions. Now I really love walking – OUTSIDE. I find I need the fresh air. I also love biking and hiking with my hubby.
Q: What keeps you going, motivated?
I feel better all around when I work out and eat healthy. I have more energy to do things. Seeing the scale go down helps as well as feeling better in my clothes. Another motivation is through pictures of myself. My hubby also keeps me motivated. He lost weight and eats healthy – so I can do it also.
Q: What is your favorite workout?
Honestly, walking. I never realized how much I would like being outside. I rarely walk on a treadmill. Pretty much the only time I won’t walk outside is when it is raining.
Q: What are some of your goals?
To get back to my feel good weight. To look good in sleeveless tops this year. To fit in my smaller clothes.
Q: What are some of your accomplishments or things you’re proud of?
Walked and biked over 450 miles in 2011. Can leg press 200 pounds.
Q: What is one random fact we should know about you?
Probably that I am a gadget geek. My new toy for the year is my Garmin Forerunner 410 that hubby got me for Christmas. I also usually walk with my iPhone or iPod Nano.
Q: What words of advice would you like to leave the readers?
Just to get out there and start doing something. You don’t have to start with running, or even walking. Love to bike? Get a bike. Walking is probably the easiest thing to start with. Walk around your house or your office building. Walk through your neighborhood. Grab a friend, a kid, or a dog and walk with them. Start slow and know that yes, it will hurt in the beginning. But after a while, you will feel GREAT!
