Why I Got Started

Since I was young, I have always been overweight and did not take any initiative to loose the excess bodyweight. I wasn't concerned about my daily diet at all; I binged on fast food and tidbits late in the night or whenever I wanted.

I Have Always Been Overweight.

When I reached 50 years of age, I was warned by my family doctor that I would risk getting a stroke and diabetes if I did not keep a healthy lifestyle. My blood pressure was sky high for someone my age. Of course I was afraid and decided it was time to do a change to my lifestyle and body.

How I Did It
dot

I started dieting and eating healthy 2 years ago. I was afraid of getting a stroke or being a diabetic. I told my husband about it and he encouraged me to hit the gym and eat healthy. In a matter of days, I went to sign up for a gym membership and started browsing through the magazines and websites for nutritional and training information.

When I was grocery shopping for my weekly diet, I looked into food that was low in sodium in order to lower my blood pressure. It worked great and I've been sticking to it since then.

Everyday has changed since I started living the fitness lifestyle. I hated fast food so much that I would never crave for it. I'd rather eat my home-cooked food.

Looking back at those before pictures of me, I've come a long way since I started. This definitely gives me the drive and momentum to carry on what I am doing.

Diet

Chicken breast is my staple in my diet daily. I don't measure my food, but I do watch the entire diet making sure it's clean.

Training
dot

I train 4 times per week. Cardio is done after every workout session for 30 minutes.

I keep my workout short and intense; it does not take more than an hour to complete my workout. I'll take a serving of whey protein before hitting the cardio after training. I'll do 2 exercises for every body part 4 sets each, reps range are around 12-20.

During the off-days, I'll usually go to the pool for a swim. This relaxes my mind and body which is important at my age.

Suggestions For Others

People in the gym respect me for my hard work and being dedicated to fitness at my age. Age is not an excuse for not working out and keeping yourself healthy! It takes time for changes to be made, stay dedicated!
