As a nurse, I’m really good at taking care of other people. But I’m not so good a taking care of myself. I think it started back in nursing school when all I did was study. Exercise was low on the list of priorities. The crazy thing is as a nurse you learn how many illnesses can be prevented if you just take care of yourself and exercise.
I didn’t want my husband or kids getting stuck caring for me because I chose to eat junk food and sit on the couch. I know that sometimes things happen in life, but the chances would be way slimmer if I just took control of my own health and made better choices. So I did.
I started with TurboJam and TurboFire. Chalene Johnson is such an inspiration with the things she says and how much fun she makes working out.
I saw other people’s before & after pictures and I knew that I could be one of those people. After a few months, I had definitely lost weight but I didn’t have the muscle tone I wanted. I found myself going back to how much I like Chalene, so I ordered ChaLEAN Extreme®.
All I had to do was get over my own hesitations about lifting weights. I thought it would be totally boring, but boy was I wrong. I have muscles now. And I think that’s awesome. When I look in the mirror now, I see my thighs getting thinner. I see a confidence I never knew before. And I like it. A lot.
