Hey everyone! Nancy here...40+ year-old living on the Augusta, GA/South Carolina border. I grew up in the great state of Ohio, though I now reside in the sunny South.
I spend a large portion of my days bringing intellectual stimulation to the minds of 13 and 14 year olds at a public middle school in Georgia. Yes, I'm the lady that makes them read! I know, it's horrifying, but
My fitness goal: Get Healthy
Being a 5'10" woman allows one to get away with a lot of bad habits. Being tall, I can carry more weight than the average person, and still pull it off. That, however, never meant that I was More ...
Being a 5'10" woman allows one to get away with a lot of bad habits. Being tall, I can carry more weight than the average person, and still pull it off. That, however, never meant that I was healthy, it just means I was really good at disguising what I looked like, and more importantly, how I felt.
My highest weight was 232 pounds, which was during the time that I was a professional ski instructor from 1994-1996. I'm sure it was the pastries and hot chocolate for breakfast, the fatty foods in the lodge at lunch, and the golden arch run prior to heading home that did me in. But, when people would say, "You're athletic," or, "You're just big boned," you start to believe that those descriptors are true. In fact, to put it simply, I was obese.
Over the past 10 years, I have committed myself more to moving more and eating less, and got comfortable in the 185-190 pound range, though I was not completely satisfied with the way I felt and looked. A new career as a middle school teacher in 2004 changed my lifestyle, and I saw the weight begin to rise again. I was unsure of what to do, until my own coach convinced me to look at the P90X program and kicked my butt daily to keep me on track.
I was intriguied, and purchased it that day. It's been an incredible challenge, but one that makes me feel empowered physically and mentally by the changes I'm experiencing, in my weight, my muscle tone, and in my self-esteem. I finished my first round on July 3, 2009, and jumped right back in with a 2nd round of doubles. I then brought it daily with a round of P90x+ alongside Tony, Tracy Morrow, and Mark Briggs which I loved dearly, and then really leaned out with a round of Insanity. I haven't let up all these years later, utilizing many Beachbody programs including ChaLean Extreme, Turbo Fire, Asylum, Les Mills Pump and good old fashioned running.
If you need some assistance creating goals, keeping motivated, or need a sounding board, perhaps I can help you push play every day.
