- What is your motivation to “Move and Improve?”
I have lost 80 pounds over the past year and a half and I want to keep it off! Move and improve helps keep me honest. I have been a participant for over four years.
- What is your biggest obstacle to “Move and Improve”?
Finding the time! With the schedule I have of four ten hour days working 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., I have been lucky to have a gym (Bangor Brewer Athletic Club) that has great classes and equipment available when I can get there. Also, my Border Collie, Pippen, will not let me forget that he wants to walk or play Frisbee too!
- What kind of activities do you engage in to reach your goal?
I take exercise classes. BodyPump (a weight lifting class) BodyCombat ( a mixed martial arts class) and Bodyflow, which is a Yoga type class. The variety keeps me interested, and the gym is within walking distance from my house so it is convenient to get to. No excuses! I also am training to run in the Warrior Dash in Amesbury, Massachusetts in June with a friend of mine who has lost 100 lbs. She is my biggest supporter next to my husband, Calvin. Of course, I like to walk and play with my dog, Pippin too!
