This is how I currently feel about running, I’m tired and I’m just done with it. I had a goal in place to run a 50 mile trail race and I did that back in May. I did it injured and now it’s time to let my body just recover and heal. My mind as well needs to absorb the rest because I am mentally not ready, not wanting to race ever again. Will that come back? Maybe? Does it scare me ? Not really. I have done some pretty amazing things since losing 144lbs and now my journey is leading me to a different route. 

I have always loved lifting and Crossfit was something I really missed when I was running. So now I have Huge News! 

I was selected out of 600 applicants to be a part of this Alpha Female 12 week program.

I HAVE A COACH!!! Like a real live person who will give me workouts, plan my macros and motivate me to be the fittest old girl I can be!

I’m so excited to begin this program August 1. This weekend I shop for my groceries, meal prep and Sunday night my workout for the week gets emailed to me. 

I will share my journey with y’all. I did the Thinner Leaner Stronger program for 4 weeks leading up to this and it was great because I already knew how to track macros, and how to properly lift. 

I will be spending so much time at GoodLife Fitness for the next 12 weeks and that excites me. The gym is my happy place. 

For the next 12 weeks all my energy will be channeled into lifting, cardio and nutrition. 

My before pics are pretty urgh 

175lbs

Yes I have a messed up stomach due to a massive hernia repair and I will never have one of those bikini comp bodies, that’s ok. My goal is to drop 25lbs , build some serious muscle and get strong! 

Coach Evan has her work cut out for her. 

Time to shop and prep!
