My weakness: super grande, guilt-free, French vanilla Mochasippi with an extra shot and no whip. Say that five times fast!
What keeps me motivated: knowing that with every step I take, every stair I climb, and every weight I lift, I’m doing my body a favor and keeping myself young.
Working Out Sucks, but: living with stiffness and pain sucks more!
I feel my best when: I’m with my fellow “fitness peeps” getting our sweat on. It could be a spin or circuit class, outdoor bike ride, running, hiking or kayaking.
If I could tell the world one thing about fitness and exercise it would be: that there is POWER IN A GROUP! I believe that we are stronger together.
The hardest thing I have ever had to overcome in my life was: a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis in my mid-30’s and the series of medication trials that followed—not to mention dealing with chronic pain and battling weight gain from the steroids. I was forced to take inventory of my life, my belief system, dig deep and push past the obstacles this disease had placed in my path. The realization that I have all the power, that I control my mind and body was a light bulb moment for me. You can only get your “game on” if you have your “lights on.” Seeing is believing!
