As week two of school approaches (and only the 4th day with students...I know I am dramatic), I definitely could use a little motivation. It's funny because as a teacher and fitness professional you'd think I would be trying to motivate myself....because that is kind of part of the gig...right? But I recently told one of my clients she is my motivation....so I kinda have to share her story!! Sowmya Aggarwal has so much dedication it's insane. Not only is she a mom of two, one of the two being 4 months old (so you can only imagine how much sleep she gets), but she trains at 5:30 AM before working a full day! She recently turned 30, and when I wished her happy birthday via text, she replied thank you...and that she couldn't wait to get in the best shape of her life! To me, that was so inspiring. Instead of using exhaustion, work and family as excuses for reaching her goals, they are her fire. She wants it, and she is getting it. Not only is she down 7 lbs, she fits back into her "old pants" and more importantly she has more energy and feels great! The paramount piece of Sowmya is that she is getting others to join her in her journey. She has her sister-in-law and husband on board and is spreading her excitement for fitness and feeling great to everyone around her. So...as the week approaches, think of Sowmya. Get out your planner and schedule your workouts, plan for healthy meals, pack your lunches....and when you feel too tired or busy to workout....know you can do it! I promise....your health is worth it!
I AM A 30-SOMETHING, FOOD-LOVING, FITNESS-OBSESSED, DIY-ING, WORK-A-HOLIC, DOGGY-MOMMY AND WIFEY.....THAT DECIDED TO SHARE MY LIFE WITH YOU. WELCOME AND ENJOY!
