Like a lot of people, after I got married I put on a few pounds…then I had kids and put on a few more–with each kid. I was having problems with headaches and not sleeping well, and I decided I needed to do something about it.
I started walking, and trying to eat differently, but I wasn’t seeing much of a difference, and I really didn’t enjoy it. Then I found Base 10; the workouts are actually fun. Definitely hard work, but fun.
My body started to change in a way I liked, and I began to realize I was more motivated by what my body could do, and less by how much weight I was losing. I now feel stronger, more confident, and healthier than I ever have.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE GUILTY PLEASURE?
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE TYPE OF WORKOUT?
My favorite workouts are the ones that make me push past the voice telling me to stop. I also love lifting weights, it’s not just for boys anymore, and I love it.
WHAT MUSIC DAY PUMPS YOU UP THE MOST IN THE GYM?
Dubstep Thursday– even though I didn’t know what kind of music this was until starting Base 10. I find the beats keep me going and I like there aren’t any words; it helps me not lose my place counting my reps.
