I started at CrossFit Rockwall 1 year ago. I wanted to get in shape before my son's wedding, and I was giving myself 1 year to do that. I wanted to look good in the wedding pictures, but I needed a lot of work! After I quit wimping out and made myself exercise two days in a row, I started to see a change. Joining the 33 Day Paleo Challenge kicked everything into high gear and I was truly on my way to a smaller, stronger, better me.
To date, I have lost 25 lbs and 3 pants sizes, my migraine headaches stopped, and I no longer have high blood pressure. But, what I have gained is so much more. At 52 years old, I am stronger, healthier, happier, and more confident than I have been in probably 20 years. I look forward to getting my butt kicked at "The Box" three times per week. I actually make my work schedule fit my workout schedule instead of the other way around.
And my son's wedding, I looked good in the pictures from every angle!! My 22 year old daughter gave me the ultimate compliment last week. She said "I brag about you all the time, mom, because as you get older you actually look younger. I'm really proud of you!" I'm pretty proud of me too!!
