It was just a year ago that I laid on my couch for 6 straight months recovering from ACL surgery. With each day that passed I wondered things like, “How much weight am I gaining?” and “Will I ever be able to do cardio again?”
Habitat Health & Fitness has taught me the importance of a single choice. The choice I made 6 weeks ago to push myself, to make time for my workouts, and to learn how to make eating healthy a lifestyle, rather than a diet.
With two active boys, 10 hour work-days, and weekends that surround baseball field concessions, I have lost 16 pounds, 15 inches and 2% body fat (and counting)! No pills, no injections…No KIDDING! When I say I’ve tried it all, I mean it. Before Habitat, I looked at health and fitness as a sprint rather than a marathon. I’d jump on the latest bandwagon diet and with it, set the most unrealistic expectations that you can imagine. You know the gimmicks, “20 pounds in 10 days”…diets like that. Now, I plan my meals and make time for my 45 minute workouts. I understand I’m not only trying to lose weight but creating a healthy lifestyle for years to come.
Over the last 6 weeks, I’ve been able to do things I never thought I would after my surgery. I can run! I can squat! I can play on the floor with my boys! My knee represents only a fraction of the strength I’ve gained from Habitat. It’s bigger to me than just a place to get a workout at. It’s about the workout I’m getting and how it’s changing my life. Bring on the marathon!
