At 55 I Feel Better Than Ever!

At 55, I feel better than I ever have in my life, but it has not always been this way.  Most of my adult life was living on a diet and exercise roller coaster, with my weight fluctuating up and down over the years.  But with the right mindset and hard work, I have lost over 50 poundsand made it my life mission to achieve and maintain the best health possible.  After making changes in exercise and nutrition, I was able to achieve a new level of fitness that I previously thought impossible.

Enough is Enough

From my 20's to my mid 40's I lived on a roller-coaster ride of yoyo dieting.  Like a lot of women, my weight had fluctuated throughout the years.  At my high I weighed 173 pounds.

A Wake-Up Call

At one point I landed in the ER.  I was told I had a heart attack.  After meeting with a cardiologist, it was revealed that it was not a heart attack, but it was a serious wake up call.  If I was going to see my kids grow up, I had to make some real lifestyle changes.  Both of my kids were in scouts, I wanted to start engaging physically in life again.  I loved the outdoors and I wanted to participate in the physical challenges alongside them.

Change is a Process and does not happen overnight

It did not happen over-night or involve an all at once lifestyle change.  It was a process of learning, adding on, and evolving my activity level and nutrition.  Getting fit is a very long process of adding strength, building muscle fibers, and shedding fat.

First you have to have a CAN-DO mindset.   After mindset the right tools are needed to achieve the body you want.  I had to build muscle, strength and endurance. This allowed me to burn fat until the point that I wanted to maintain.  A steady combination of the right types of exercises, diet and rest days I found were keys to success.

Nutrition is also a mindset. I found the word “carbs” is not a bad word.  The right balance of carbs, fats and protein is necessary.  Some days are a challenge, but it's just part of the journey.  Life is meant to be enjoyed and some day's you just need to enjoy life by treating yourself to something unhealthy.  It's not the end of the world.  You just enjoy it, not stress over it and get back to business the next day.

How has being stronger made your life better?  Not just the bathing suit before and after.... life! Confidence, esteem, relationships, career, school, and healthy?

In my 50’s now, I feel and look better than I have my whole life.  I have accomplished amazing things going from overweight and stuck in midlife spread to being where I am now.  Everything is better by living a healthier lifestyle from more confidence to do the things I want to do and better relationships with people.  I have also learned that taking care of yourself is a priority not a self-indulgence. If you want to be a better person and help other people, you have to start with yourself.

Professional Opera Singer Drops Pounds and Inches and Becomes Pioneer and Role Model to Women

     I’ve always had problems with my weight. Starting all the way back in college. My body loved to yo-yo.  2004 was my breaking point and needed to change my life after I found my mother dead. She dropped dead at 57 years old from a heart attack. She weighed over 320 pounds. I wasn’t that heavy but i was obese and was heading down that road because of unhealthy eating habits, minimal exercise, and drinking lots of alcohol.

My husband at the time and I decided to go on a diet and we did the Body for Life Program by Bill Phillips. I got down to my goal weight and got interested in taking my fitness goals to the next level by competing in fitness competitions. I competed for 7 years until I had a car accident that changed my life completely. I ended up with neck-back spinal injuries that forced me to retire from the sport.

I had to go to physical therapy for months and was told I was unable to do overhead movements, pull-ups, running or plyometrics. I got very discouraged and depressed. I was used to training all or nothing. I ended up quitting exercising and would emotionally eat. I ended up blowing up to over 200 pounds and couldn’t get the weight off for many years.

I tried losing weight numerous times and failed. I reached rock bottom.  I wanted to completely give up until one day I decided to change my mindset to positive thoughts and starting believing in myself through self help books, subliminal affirmations, solfeggio music, mediation, crystal therapy, prayer, and the Herbalife program.

The Herbalife program helped jump start my fitness goals and helped me to get to my goal weight. After I got to my goal weight, I decided I wanted to compete again and hired a trainer. I’m currently training for my comeback show in September with IFBB Pro Kelly Lynn. I will be doing a crossover physique/figure and plan to bring home some hardware and qualify for nationals.

Current Diet

  • Lean Protein
  • Green Vegetables
  • Complex Carbs

Current Training Program

  • Weights and Cardio six days per week

It has been a very long road but triumphant one.  My results are truly a miracle. I thought my fitness career was over because of my injuries and I essentially gave up on life until I change my mindset and then my whole world changed for the better. I’ve gained confidence, esteem, positive relationships, and boost in my music career.

   Being a professional opera singer demands a lot on the body stamina wise because Opera singers use their whole body to produce sound. Opera singers are essentially like athletes. When I was heavier, I would get tired easily, I had a lot of issues with supporting my sound and with my breath support because I was overweight. Now that I’ve lost the weight I have more energy and I’m able to sustain vocal phrases with ease and power.

I want to motivate and inspire others by sharing my story. I want to be a pioneer and role model to women and my 9 year old daughter. My future plans are to go back school to get my Doctorate in Music, write a book titled, “Overall Wellness for the Performing Singer”, compete in fitness competitions, be a personal trainer, and start my own line of exercise videos.

From Obese to a STRONG, Fit Woman… a New Me Began to Emerge.

My name is Laura Nieves and This is my story:

In December 2012 I sat staring at a picture someone took of me and I was shocked by the person I had become.  I had a ton of health issues fighting diabetes, high cholesterol and a fatty liver due to the loss of my gall bladder a few years back.  The scale was climbing and was eventually near 300 pounds.  My doctor had asked me several times to get healthy. My dad pushed me to get back to being fit. He asked me to change my way of eating.

I watched a film about a man fighting for his life and it hit me, I had 2 daughters and a husband that I wanted to be around for.  I prayed for the strength to do this. In January of 2013 I started exercising.  Gradually I started eating better.  It was all trial and error.  Slowly I was making progress and in 2014 I became a vegetarian.

I was to go to a weight room full of men.  Worse, I was sure how to work majority of the machines. My husband and I transformed my full basement into a gym. I started weightlifting and loved the way my body slowly started transforming.  I went to the doctor early 2014 and I no longer showed signs of diabetes or high cholesterol. I no longer woke up from panic attacks or back issues.

My dad had stage four lung cancer.  Even with cancer, my dad would wake up with me every morning at 5am and we would go jogging for 2-3 miles every day. How he found the strength and energy amazed me every day.  He was so proud of me trying to get healthy and fit. My dad was such a fighter.  I lost my dad in 2014.

The sadness and stress of losing my him caused me to gain weight back. I remembered how proud he was and how he motivated to keep going. In 2015 I started to focus on me again.  I lost a ton of weight. My clothes started shrinking.  My waist started getting smaller. From obese to a strong, fit woman, a new me began to emerge. I got my confidence back. My daughters got their mother back. My husband got his wife back. Full of energy and life.

In 2017, I competed for my first contest to honor my dad and his battle with lung cancer.  I lost so much weight and was a far cry from the almost 300 pounds I had once weighed. Despite me being one of the biggest girls on stage in the contest, I got out of my comfort zone in a bikini.  This experience was amazing and changed my life.  I glued a piece of my dad’s favorite shirt inside my bikini bottoms. I felt as if my dad was standing right beside me on stage.

My life has forever changed.  I am no longer sick or need to take medicine.  My lose skin is a testament to my journey. It shows how much weight I have lost.  My scars and stretch marks show I am a warrior that persevered.  Fitness me the fountain of youth. People tell me I look younger now than when I was in my 20s. I say hello to being fit and strong in my 40s. I am now pescatarian still have not had a piece of meat since 2014. I am still a work in progress.  I lift weights 5-6 days a week and my body is forever changing.

My advice…never think a dream is to big. You can change your life. If you think you are stuck, trust me you are not. You are the author of your own story. You got this. 

93 Pounds Down but it So Much More then the Weight and Before and After Pictures!

Brooke Dieringer

My story started February 2012, I was at a dance for our county 4-H and they took pictures; I saw myself in the picture and was disgusted with myself. That’s when I said, enough was enough. I was in a strength and conditioning class my senior year of high school and I started watching what I ate, counting calories like it was my job and I would run on my mom’s treadmill before school every morning. I was 220 pounds when I started. By the time I graduated, I weighed 170 pounds and I had dropped 7 pant sizes and 2 shirt sizes.

Through college, it was yo-yo dieting and trying every kind of exercise there was just to try and lose more weight. In 2014 I decided to join Anytime Fitness and hire a personal trainer where I learned more about strength training and started watching what I ate more closely; eating cleaner. In 2015 I decided that I wanted to do my first bodybuilding contest. I hired a coach and I thought it was normal for a prep to be miserable with super low calories, insane amounts of cardio and feeling tired and drained constantly.

After that contest experience I fired my coach and hired a new one that I thought would work better for me. I started a crazy long contest prep again fall of 2016 and by early 2017 I decided to call the prep off because I was consuming little to no carbs, doing 60 minutes of cardio 7 days a week and I was getting hurt. I was miserable and I decided then and there that I was never going to step on stage again.

In the fall of 2017, I ballooned back up to 170 pounds.  I was not happy. I remember meeting Nicole Goodno, my current coach.  She helped me create a healthy relationship with food by giving me just a set amount of macros. I finally learned how to properly count macros and I was able to fit the foods I truly enjoyed while not feeling guilty. While counting macros, I was doing CrossFit 5 times a week and feeling fantastic. December 31st, 2018, I pulled the trigger and decided to do another contest prep! I felt healthy, happy, I now have a great, healthy relationship with food.

My relationship with my fiance couldn’t be any healthier. I was eating halo top ice cream with cereal, French-toast, lasagna, tacos, burgers, and plenty of other great foods; proving that eating during a contest prep doesn’t have to be boring….same for those looking to lose pounds and inches.  I switched from doing CrossFit to more conventional bodybuilding lifts and still doing little to no cardio, which makes me happy!

93 pounds down but it’s not just about the weight and before and after pictures. I have a fantastic relationship with food, I am happy with my body, I am confident, and my mindset has changed a whole 360 degrees. I am learning how to take my favorite recipes that are more comfort food with a healthy spin on them. Once my fiance and I decide to have children, it will be easy for us to teach them how to be mindful when it comes to food. Our kids will know that eating fun foods is ok but that eating healthy like mom and dad is a good thing as well!

I am able to make this health and fitness journey not just into a hobby but a lifestyle that I will be able to maintain long-term.  As a dairy farmer, I learned that it is important to keep an active and healthy lifestyle. In life, I have learned that you only live once so you need to live life to the fullest and that you should keep an open mind in everything you do.

I love the lifestyle of “If It Fits Your Macros” (IIFYM) because it gives me the freedom to have “fun foods” while also balancing with healthy whole foods. I would have never been open to trying IIFYM 3 years ago when I did my first contest prep. Back then I had no freedom to eat whatever I wanted. Throughout these last 3 years, I have learned how amazing IIFYM can be and how I can make a lifestyle out of this.

Today, my relationships have gotten so much stronger. I feel so much more confident and my self-esteem has been boosted. I feel like I am able to be myself around people now and I am so much happier since I finally found myself through fitness.

Michael Krause Down 8 lbs in 4 weeks on Eat by Color, Down 62 lbs total!

 

Michael Krause Down 8 lbs in 4 weeks on Eat by Color, Down 62 lbs total!  So Mike contacted us looking for some help.  He had reached a high weight of over 315 lbs and also was diagnosed as a type II diabetic.  When we started working with Mike he was doing mostly cardio and very little weight lifting.  On his own in about 9 months he lost 53 lbs.  Nothing to be disappointed in.  The disappointment was that he had plateaued at around 260 lbs.

This is where we started helping Mike and in the last 4 weeks he has lost 8 lbs.  This is the first time he has been under 260 lbs since 1987…almost 30 years!

Mike’s story gets better.  He just had blood work done.  His A1C is improved, his total cholesterol improved, his bad cholesterol went down, and his good cholesterol went up.  Though is is doing much less cardio than he was before he just ran his best 5K time ever.  He said he was shooting for 34 minutes or better and clicked off just over 31 minutes.  That is right he is running less and turning better times!

Mike says he has settled into a routine and does not focus too much on food or worry about how food will impact his diabetes because he is naturally gravitating toward better food choices.  His family has even begun to eat better.  He and his wife plan their meals a week in advance and then shop on Friday.  The result is they are eating out much less too.

So what do you do for nutrition? Are you interested in making a change like Mike?  The simplest thing, Eat by Color! No counting anything. No calories, macros, points or anything else to count. Simple better nutrition decisions based on foods you like to eat. Eat by Color is NOT a diet. Click for a FREE consult to learn more.

D1 Athlete Bryanna Phelan Talks Collegiate Sports and More, Eat by Color!

 

D1 Athlete Bryanna Phelan Talks Collegiate Sports and More, Eat by Color!  So I sat down with one of our FitWorkz staff Bryanna Phelan. Bry runs our Sports Performance program for our athletes. Bry talks about life as an athlete, training, and more. Watch the video. :-)

 

After the video Bry sent the following thoughts. Athletes and parents will find the information below useful. Please read and share.

 

“This is my experience. Not that all athletes go through the same thing. However, those that are competitive and want to play collegiately, may experience the same things.

 

– Competitive travel organizations, or at least the one I was in, push for the athletes to start thinking about college at a young age. By 14U it becomes a serious conversation.

-For us it was, what division do you want to play in? how far from home? big or small school?

-Then player profiles are created so that you can start promoting yourself as an athlete to the potential schools that you may want to play for.

-That means that 13 year olds are now planning and thinking about their life after they are 18. Essentially you are telling an 8th grader to know what career path they want to take when they are 18 and older.

-The focus is on the school you want to play for. What coaching staff you want to play for. You become the mascot, i.e a “huskie” an “eagle.” You represent that school, and stand by what it believes in.

-Then the focus on scholarship becomes an issue. Can you go where you want to go with the coaching staff you want to play for AND get money for it? Everyone knows grades are important, and my grades were never an issue, but preparing for a future beyond playing softball at NIU was never really enforced.

-Once you get your scholarship, or make the decision to play somewhere the talk about choosing a major becomes more important. Sure I went in as a Nursing major, but I changed my major twice after that because I realized I no longer want to be a “nurse”

-Don’t forget that while it is okay to change your major, you are also a student athlete. That means that you have certain percentages of your degree complete each semester so that you are eligible to play. That means time is not quite on your side if you are undecided.

-For me, I chose to try out business. After 3 semesters, and a quickly declining GPA, I had to make another major decision. At this point, I was going into my sophomore season and had minimal time to consider where I saw myself after college. I chose Kinesiology because I knew that it was a field that interested me and I also had to have enough of the academics completed so that I was eligible to play.

-Life is always laid out for you when you’re an athlete, everything is scheduled. Practices, games, meetings, lifting, everything. It’s all you really know. When that schedule is gone, the ‘real world’ is all that’s left. Something we never really had time to experience.

-Being a collegiate athlete is an excellent decision, but there should be more focus on life after, and career fields. Granted, no one really knows what they want to do for the rest of their life, but finding a general interest can help immensely.

-High school is a great time to feel out jobs/careers and shadow/research/talk to people who may be in the field you like

These are just some of the things that mull around in my mind months after graduating. only my opinions and life experiences. not to be taken as the end all be all every athlete experiences this sort of thing. ”
