Why I Got Started
I was active but not consistent. I would go to the gym on and off. I was an amateur boxer and use to being active, but was really not that interested in weight training on a consistent basis.
My eating wasn't too bad; but I was only eating 2 times per day thinking I would lose weight. I relocated from Canada to the U.S. without family or friends for a work opportunity. I became depressed in the absence of my support circle.
I started to gain weight because I stopped working out all together. I wasn't eating healthy and was going through a mild depression. I wasn't feeling good about myself; and being isolated from my daughter and family took a huge toll on me.
I couldn't get out of my depression and at times felt like giving up on life. I was doing some research and read an article on fighting back when depressed. Exercise was one of the key components of fighting off depression. That was my way out.
So I told myself "Christine, it is time to re-claim your life." It was now or never.

How I Did It
I ate clean and ate 6 times per day, measuring my portions.
I also drank a lot of water, weight trained, and did cardio 5-6 times a week.
