January 12, 2015 was the beginning of a new journey for me. It was the day I decided, at age 55, to invest in my health. I knew that God had good plans for me(Jeremiah 29:11), so after many years of pouring myself into my children, which I would never take back a second of, I teamed up with Crystal to take control of my body and focus on eating healthy and exercising. It was a big commitment considering my work schedule, but I was determined to make it work. I’m okay with putting in the hours to achieve my goals at anything I put my mind to! Getting up “before the chickens” was a slight adjustment that had my family and friends think I was crazy, but again…..I was determined. I changed my lifestyle and it changed my life! I started as a 55 year old worn out, overworked single mom and am now a 63 year old more confident, still working lots of hours, slightly crazy about my fitness, drives 35 minutes at 3:00 a.m. to get to the gym, much stronger woman. My journey of almost 8 years has had its ups and downs, yet here I am, still a member of a gym who’s staff is always encouraging me to never give up! Age is just a number….
