After years of being the classic yo-yo dieter, I finally had my “ah-ha moment” in October 2011! I realized that in order to be successful in reaching my fitness goal, I had to make a healthier commitment to my new lifestyle. So then I began the CrossFit Journey. Since joining CrossFit, my experience with the workouts has given me a new-found excitement and a welcome challenge. The camaraderie at the gym with the great trainers and fellow CrossFitters has provided me the needed support and encouragement. My CrossFit WODs and early morning runs with my Maltese Rocco have physically transformed me into the person I am today. The Paleo diet gave me the nutritional foundation to learn how to enjoy natural foods for optimal results and performance. Well, I’m excited to say, 100 pounds later, I’ve almost achieved my goal and look forward to my future as I continue to become my best fit self.
