I got married when I was 28 and divorced when I was 39. It took me awhile to find the courage to leave the marriage. It was a dead marriage for few years but not having the strength to leave just made it longer. I was sad, happy, scared, relieved, worried. I got on with my life and for once did whatever made me happy. I wasn’t worried about meeting anyone cause I wanted to spend the time getting to know myself. I wanted to put a smile on my face and not feel guilty about it. As I got comfortable I put on a bit of weight.  Working long hours was not helping as it wasn’t leaving enough time for me to train (or so I thought). Two people used to regularly shop at my work and I started chatting and found out they were trainers. I knew I had to do something, but I always had the excuse of long hours. After few weeks I went to try it and see how I would go. In my first 30 minute session, I had to stop 3-4 times to catch my breath. I never knew I could sweat so much. I couldn’t bend my legs for a week, but I went back the week after and challenged myself to stop 1 less time for a break. I did it! Every session from then on, I was giving myself small little milestones to achieve. It wasn’t easy starting from scratch but as the muscles got sorer my motivation got stronger! Every little challenge I gave myself, I completed! I never gave up, even when using foam roller to relieve some of the tensions. I was looking forward to new challenges and how my body felt and not to forget-how happy that made me feel. After going to gym for 6-7 months my trainers offered me a Metabolic Precision class to learn about food. I really had no idea what to expect but I was in for a new challenge. Learning about the right timing and the right food was lifechanging. When I started to see how my body changed after 8 weeks and kept getting better by the day was just amazing to see. From then on, I did weight trainings which I find so powerful on its effects on the body. I have done level 1 of boxing. I have a passion for yoga and believe it is critical to effective training of all kinds.
