Long story short, I started, I loved it but holy Hannah I didn’t think I was cut out for it. After about the fourth practice I came home and knew I needed to decide to either going to quit and walk away a without really trying or I was going to find something to help me shed some pounds and strengthen. Again, Facebook came to my rescue. After stalking my mommy friends I found it, Fit By Design, I could bring the baby and work out. Done.
Not only did Sabrina offer the butt kicking I had been looking for but she along with guest speakers and the other moms introduced new ideas into my life. Like for example, it really doesn’t matter as much about the number on the scale or the letter on the inside tag of that new shirt as it does about how you feel and how you rock that new shirt. I also realized that it was actually ok for me to want things for myself and that I didn’t have to carry around the guilt I’d had on my shoulders since I walked through the door. I felt like I already left my family for derby twice a week and now during the time I had with just my youngest I was working out. I have never felt so relieved, then to hear other moms talk about sharing those same feelings that had brought on said guilt – phew! I wasn’t a bad mom after all.
After my session with Sabrina I had lost over 10 inches and I felt like a new me – maybe the truth was I felt like the old me. The lessons I learned will always be with me, but those inches I lost were a whole other story. I’m not going to lie, a summer filled with good food, camping trips and a few drinks (just a few!) have definitely caught up to me and I was starting to fall back into that couch potato mode.
So here I am, back again, pleading with Sabrina to help bring me back from the depths of chocolate cookies and marshmallows and back to the active healthy mom I need to be. I look forward to meeting some new moms and learning from their life experiences. If I want to continue to play the sport that I love, I can’t afford to slack off anymore (yes, I willingly allow other women to knock me down. Repeatedly. Love.) I know with Sabrina’s help and the group’s support I can achieve my goals for this 6 week session.
