The week of Aug. 8 has been an emotional and mental roller coaster ride. There are several events that have taken place this past week that would normally have caused me to turn to some sweet comfort foods.
This past week, I did not get to work out much with T.J. Temper, my personal trainer from the Northern Ohio Fitness Center. Whenever our schedules don't "jive," I take the exercise classes offered at the fitness center. If I can't make the classes, then I run/walk at home.
Of course you've heard of insurance companies that operate on the "risk sharing" business model, but have you ever heard of an insurance company that operates on the "force-field disaster prevention" business model?
The first week of August went well working with Derek Nimrichter of Bodi N Balance. Derek has increased the intensity of my workouts to help shave off the calories. The challenge is to keep my heart rate up while working with Derek, as well as on my own.
The eighth month of the FIT Challenge is now starting. I am glad we are past July because it was a month when I struggled with weight loss. I believe this past month will serve as a challenge for me, especially since the first six months went very well and the weight came off fairly easy.
