Why did you seek out training at Carpe Diem Personal Training?
My mother was recently put on diabetes medication. I had fluctuated weight for the last 13 years by 40 pounds (yo-yo). I didn’t exercise and my job was extremely high stress. I had high cholesterol for the first time. I didn’t sleep often or well. I was grouchy. I didn’t want to end up on meds for behaviors that were controllable.
Please list any short and/or long term goals you currently have and/or have achieved:
My short term goals achieved. I lost 16% body fat in 14 weeks. I drink lots of water vs. coffee/Diet Coke all day with possibly a glass of water thrown in. I’ve slept every night, and slept well. I am no longer addicted to sugar. My cholesterol is lower. I’ve been able to reduce dosage of the medicine I take. I want to work out and better manage stress. I’m the healthiest I’ve been in my life, and down 3 sizes.
