Mama T doing the vacation Handstand!

As I was sitting in front of my computer, thinking about how I can follow up Ian’s awesome post from yesterday, I received the following email from Terri!  She is a morning WODer so I don’t see her as often as I would like, but she is a testament to the power of consistency and hard work.  I will never forget her performance in the Open Sectionals Snatch workout last year!  Thanks for sending this email and sharing your success.  You’ve earned it! 

I was just thinking what an incredible year this has been.  When I joined Paradiso Crossfit back in August of last year, I was 3 months postpartum, overweight and completely out of shape.  Prior to getting pregnant I used to run a lot.  But even when I was training for a marathon I never reached the level of fitness where I am today.  Since joining the gym, I have lost close to 30 lbs and I feel better than ever.  Similar to what Ian said in his post today, what really made the difference was when I changed how I eat.  That is when the results really started to show.  When I was on vacation I ate horribly and my body pretty much shut down. I never realized how much certain foods affected me until I completely cut them out of my diet.

So a big THANK YOU to you, Martina, G, Zeb, Lara and everyone else who helped me get to where I am today.  I just can’t thank you all enough.  🙂 Keep up the good work!
