FIT CHALLENGE: Grant is back and 'stronger and better than ever'

Feb 21, 2012


I know some people were worried about me last week, but I am back stronger and better than ever. Every one can see my progress in today's issue of the Sandusky Register. 

The gym has been tough. I’ll call it “boot camp," but I get through it because I know once I start the workout, I must get it done.  So far Anytime Fitness personal trainer Ken Cutcher and I have been doing total body workouts, which I like doing because I get the full effect of my whole body doing work, not just a certain body part or muscle.

Dieting has been going great! I have been eating four small meals and two snacks, which keep me full for the day.  My meals include any type of meat, except red meat (I eat only once a week), vegetable, some type of starch and fruit.  My snacks just to name a few are, Greek yogurt, 100-calorie pack of almonds, 100-calorie pack of trail mix, cottage cheese and fruit or a cup of skim milk.

Our first FIT challenge was hosted at Bodi N Balance in Port Clinton at 6 p.m. Thursday. We had to use the rowing machines. Like people say, "When the going gets tough, the tough gets going" ...  and that’s how I felt.  Jacob Mohr the winner of last year’s FIT challenge was my coach/time keeper for the challenge, which was great! He could tell when it was getting tough for me and would tell me, "You can do it," and that I did!

My family, friends, co-workers, church members and people in the community keep supporting me and making sure I succeed with the challenge.  Carla, Craig, and Brandi, thanks for showing your concern.  Carla and Craig, good luck on your progress and I wish you two the best.
