Pam is a 46 year old banker. She wants to keep up with her family! She is tired of being a "spectator" in life and is ready to jump back in the game. Pam wants to celebrate by taking a family vacation where she can walk as needed and join in the family fun.
Initial Impressions from Pam:
This whole process has been absolutely amazing! When I completed the application I knew it was something I really wanted to do, but never dreamed I would be chosen to participate. My luck usually does not run in my favor!
The open house was so much fun, and everyone was so nice, helpful and encouraging. I don't think I've ever experienced the kind of support that all of you give to this program and the participants. You all made us feel like rock stars! The photo shoot was even a blast even though I normally try to avoid the camera. I think it was just so exciting to be beginning this journey. I am going to sign up this afternoon, and can't wait to get started.
My family is really excited about this too. They have decided to join and work out with me! This is such a blessing. Again, thanks so much!!!!
Update November 7, 2012
I will be working with Norm Judd as my trainer. We had our first session Monday night and he was awesome. I learned so much from him during our meeting. We discussed diet and how the body burns fat and calories. The workouts are going good. I have been doing some on my own and have my second session with Norm tonight. I can't wait! I think the assessment process was beneficial and a bit scary. Although it's good to know your "fitness age" it's also a little frightening. The classes so far have been great. Dr. Shaw provided us with some good information that I think will be very helpful to all of us. The only real challenge I experienced was last week when trying to go to the gym and classes at night. I found that I didn't have time to cook and had to eat out a few times. However, I've conquered that this week! I shopped for groceries on Saturday and used Sunday as a cooking day to prepare meals that we can eat throughout the week. Crisis averted!
Update December 11:
As progress goes it is going good. I'm down 6 lbs from the beginning which is not as much as I'd like but I feel much better & can tell that my clothes are looser!! I'm enjoying the workouts & feeling blessed to have this opportunity!!
