3. Describe steps you took to change, any obstacles you faced and overcame, significant people/things that helped you and anything you want to share.
The biggest obstacle was just starting! I hadn't done any kind of exercise in years, and I didn't want to look foolish when I went to the first Foundations 6:19 class. I knew all the ladies that exercised with Iris had been doing it a long time. I figured there would be no way I could keep up with them. Yes, for my first workout, I did die! But as I continued to go, it got better. No, it's never easy; but oh, I feel so good when I do it!
5. How do you see yourself continuing your journey and the impact it will have on those around you?
I want my journey to continue strong, because I want my kids to see me being active and really working on me. I want to encourage others to take the first step. Even if it's hard! It is so worth it. Also once you start, keep going! It took a while for me to see results, and I really wanted to give up at times. But in the long run, its been the best decision I have made! Thank you! Thank you Iris! Love you lots!
6. How has Foundations 6:19 helped you on your journey?
Foundations has helped me learn to exercise and eat better.
I appreciate everything Foundations 6:19 (Iris) has helped me to accomplish in reaching my health & fitness goals.
