FIT CHALLENGE: Grant juggles working out, school and work

Jan 17, 2012


Last week went well; it was my first week incorporating all my daily tasks into one day.  I had to be on campus by 8 a.m., workout at 10:30 p.m. and be at work at 2:30 p.m.

This schedule has been tough, but I am doing my best to get everything done.  The training at the gym got a little tougher.  I had to do three minutes on the elliptical machine, which made my legs burn.  I am still following my diet and watching what I eat. 

On MLK Day, I didn’t have to go to school, didn’t have to meet with Ken my trainer, but work still calls.  I still have the support of my family, friends and co-workers making sure I stay on track and do my best.

Derek, I am glad you were selected for F.I.T. Challenge.  Do not feel overwhelmed.  I am glad you have a trainer.  NO one knows how to get back into shape without someone helping them.  NO one is a self-made fitness guru.  Please make sure you consult with your trainer so you can begin your work out regiment.  It takes WORK and COMMITMENT to get results.  I wish there was a magic pill, but that is not going to happen.  I promise you will have more energy and feel better as you progress.  You OWE to yourself, your family and friends.  Rock on brother.  I will be watching your progress via the Register.  YOU can do it! 


Thanks Taypayer Iam glad that you will be watching my progress.  This just made me feel more motivated knowing that I have someone else that believes in me.
