I want to introduce you to an awesome lady named Kathy! Kathy is Ms. Consistency and rarely misses a day of boot camp. As a result she’s seen incredible results in strength gains and losing those stubborn inches. In addition, her fitness journey has impacted her daughter and has inspired her to lose weight and get stronger as well.
So Kathy, how long have you been exercising consistently?
I’ve been consistent for almost a year and a half.
What influenced your decision to get dedicated and be consistently active?
Last year I did an AdvoCare 24-day Challenge. The results motivated me to step it up another notch to be healthier. A friend of mine introduced me to boot camp. I started going three days a week and eventually increased to six days a week.
What else other than boot camp do you do to stay active?
I work in the yard and around the house. I occasionally go for walks and/or run.
What are some of your biggest barriers to staying active and how do you overcome those barriers?
One of the biggest barriers that I have staying active is being exhausted after a long day at work. However, if I just show up for boot camp I feel so much better. So showing up is the key.
Since becoming consistent with your exercise, what’s the biggest difference you see in yourself physically and mentally?
The biggest difference I see physically is that I am stronger, I can wear a smaller size and that I have lost several inches. Mentally, I feel great. I don’t like to miss class.
How would you classify your current eating habits?
My current eating habits are good most of the time. However, if I want a piece of cake, then I have a piece of cake.
Do you have a specific diet/eating strategy that you follow?
I don’t have a particular diet/eating strategy but I do try to limit processed food and simple carbs.
Do you have a favorite go to healthy meal or food?
My favorite go to healthy meal is zucchini spaghetti.
Do you have advice for someone contemplating starting a fitness/weight loss journey or advice for someone struggling to stay motivated?
My advice would be just doing it. Starting anything is mind over matter. I will say if you are struggling to stay motivated due to a plateau, try an AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge. It will jump start your metabolism and clean any junk out of your system. It worked for me.
Not only is Kathy consistent but she’s also a hard worker that pumps up the intensity every boot camp session. I want to thank Kathy for sharing her story and providing a few take ways. Number one, it’s always easy to take the day off because you’re tired, but the truth is you will feel better after the workout. Number two, never deprive yourself. If you want a piece of cake have a small piece of cake. Deprivation leads to binging and binging leads to more weight gain. Number three, when you hit a plateau always keep your eyes and mind open to other things that may be able to help you bust through and achieve more.
