New Me, No Excuses

So, I turned 31 over a month ago. I wasn’t feeling so good and I had to take some time to reset & heal. I dedicated two full weeks to getting healthy & back on track. I spent the time back home, in San Diego, where I saw my doctor, my dentist, my hairdresser & my trainers (and family & friends, of course).
Working in the airline industry, time literally flies. Before you know it, things in life can fall out of integrity and affect your overall well-being. Seeing my doctor made a huge difference for me, my dentist brought my smile back to life, and my hairdresser & trainers sent me back to Philadelphia looking & feeling like a new woman.
I worked hard and attended classes five nights a week at NXPT (No Excuses Personal Training) in San Diego. I met Dan and Richie back in May 2012. I was instantly attracted to their style of teaching & the unique workouts they offered. The guys are so charismatic and so much fun. They really care about their clients and about getting them results. It’s evident that they absolutely love what they do. They’ve actually been voted the best Boot Camp in San Diego two years in a row.

I was the healthiest I had ever known myself to be that summer. I changed my eating habits, my social habits (I even quit smoking), and I was in amazing shape. Over the past year & a half, since becoming a flight attendant (& being away from that environment), I found it challenging to keep up with my new (healthy) habits…
So, I’m making it a point to get myself back to where I want to be. The guys hooked me up with a 21 day supply of Herbalife shakes & Proven Nutrition supplements for weight loss & muscle recovery (which they sell in-house).

After two weeks of consistent training, I lost close to 5 pounds! It was a great start… I’m only 5’1″, so, five pounds makes a huge difference.

As a bonus, I got to experience this all with my mom & sister, who are also members at NXPT and big fans of the guys, too.

Since returning to flying, I’ve been pretty good with working out on my own. Of course I took a little “turkey” break for Thanksgiving, but I’m back in my routine now. Since this isn’t a health and fitness blog, I’m not going to document my progress through my posts, but I’m hoping my progress will show itself through my pictures…

Special thanks to Dan, Richie and the entire staff at NXPT for all that you do. You guys are so inspiring and you are definitely my favorite trainers in the whole wide world!

I’d also like to acknowledge my hairdresser of 16 years, Brisa Ramirez. After all these years, your magic still amazes me. You are a true artist & I love my hair. Thank you! If you’re in California, you can contact Brisa here.

Thank you all for reading along. I wish you all a happy, healthy holiday season & new year up ahead! Do you have any resolutions that you’re putting in place before 2015?
