A couple months ago, my wife and I were looking to do something active together. She had tried many times to get me to workout with her at the gym but it wasn’t my thing. I didn’t enjoy it. It was boring.
In the past, I got my exercise from playing sports but that has slowed down and wasn’t enough. Plain and simple, I was out of shape! She finally got me to try Pinnacle Fitness with her. Through Pinnacle, we decided to enter the Biggest Loser Weight-Loss Challenge contest, set weight loss goals and challenge ourselves.
There were three things I focused on: Getting to two Pinnacle Bootcamps a week, running, and eating well. Having never dieted, eating well was definitely the hardest. It was a lifestyle change I wasn’t accustomed to. My wife definitely encouraged me through some times when I just wanted to eat some of my favorite things like wings and spaghetti. She helped me get over that hump and appreciate foods I wouldn’t normally eat like brussel sprouts & spaghetti squash. Who knew spaghetti squash was delicious?
Coupled with eating and running, the bootcamps were crucial and over time became more forgiving on my body. Don’t get me wrong – I leave those bootcamps super winded and in most cases flat out exhausted. The forgiveness on my body is a testament to building mind and body muscle. I knew I was getting in shape and the scale showed decreases in my weight.
It’s been a great lifestyle change. I continue to eat well, attend two bootcamps a week, run and play sports like golf and wiffle ball to achieve my ultimate goal of 185 lbs. After I hit that goal, a new goal will be set. Dare I say 175 lbs?
It’s a lifestyle I appreciate. I don’t get heart burn as much as I used to, my stamina has increased, and I feel healthier overall. The Biggest Loser Challenge helped kick off this change. My wife and I continue to workout together to get those beach bodies ready for Aruba at the end of April!
