As a mom of four, much of my time is spent managing hectic schedules. This often includes lots of planning, driving, and traveling locally and afar.
However, at times, I felt like a victim to my schedule. I wanted to learn what I could do to feel and look strong and confident, and keep up with my kids. My
goal was to find my fittest self and equip myself for success.
My exercise consisted of playing a little
tennis. That was all. While I had modified
my diet by eliminating some processed
foods, dairy and gluten, I didn’t really know
how to eat well or control portion sizes. I
was ready to not only lose the extra weight,
start training again, and clean up my diet,
but I also wanted to update my look. My
Best 10 seemed like the perfect choice.
I loved the program! I enjoyed the
comprehensive approach. All the
components of the program tied together
helped me achieve my goals. The life
coaching I received helped me put
everything into a realistic framework that
made sense for my life. I learned to not only
juggle my family’s schedule, but to plan
for my needs as well. My trainer kept me
coming back even after the program had
ended. He was patient when he needed to
be, encouraging during the rough spots,
and ready to push me to the next level when
I was ready. I loved it and continue to train
with him three times a week.
I don’t feel like a victim anymore. I have the
tools, confidence and determination to keep working on myself. I made some significant
improvements and personal discoveries
those first few weeks that helped get me
to where I am today. I’m lighter, leaner and
excited to keep on improving and setting
new goals. I added yoga to my weekly
routine and my tennis game has improved
significantly. I have more energy, and gone
are the aches I used to have.
If there’s one thing I fall back upon daily, it’s
to remind myself that I owe myself “My Best
10.” Those three little words help get me
through a lot. When I don’t want to exercise,
I tell myself, “You can do anything for 10
minutes. Give it a My Best 10.” Funny thing
is that once I start, it usually lasts longer
than 10 minutes, even though I’ve given
myself permission to stop after 10 minutes.
Or if I get tempted by a poor food choice, I
wait it out at least 10 minutes. Usually, the
desire subsides. Whether it’s 10 minutes of
fitness, 10 minutes to contemplate a food
choice, 10 weeks to work on a goal, or 10
weeks to improve myself, I always try to
remind myself that I owe it to myself and my
family to always aspire to be My Best 10!
