We just completed the Group 90 Day Health and Body Makeover Program and she made the most improvements among the group!!!
Now you may think that because she’s my mother that this was easy for her. We didn’t talk about exercise or food any other time than on the call once a week. My mother has
proclaimed in the past “I will never run“.
She ate her words. And I didn’t ever tell her to!
My mother now runs 5-6 times a week for 30-40 minutes and stays
in her heart rate zone most of the time. She even runs in the house if it’s too cold in PA for her to do it outside. She claims ” this watch ( HR Monitor) makes me run!” And it’s only taken 10 years. I have been a trainer for over 10 years. Every year I go home and train, educate and suggest. I have hired them 3 different personal trainers to come to the house. The first one left which is why I had to hire #2 and then #3.
My parents are normal/healthy weight. They are not overweight or obese by any means but of course I want them to age well and be around as long as possible. They have always agreed and desired to be more fit and so it was mom’s turn to get involved with the 90 Day Health and Body Makeover this year.
She hasn’t recalculated yet but just the fact that she now runs when she said she would never and that she commits to over 30 min at least 5 days a week to exercise consistently is a MAJOR accomplishment.
She even asked herself if her schedule was the right thing for HER on a given day. What I mean by that is Mom gives her time and attention to everyone. However, she doesn’t give it to herself as often. But now she admitted to doing what was right for her, not everyone else and that’s a great step for Val to take care of herself first!
Good job Mom! Love you!! Can’t wait to help you keep up the progress and get to the next goal!
