Six Aurora BayCare Medical Center have embarked on a wellness challenge that will change their lives forever! Over the next six months, these people will be coached, trained and transformed into triathlon-level athletes through the Aurora BayCare Sports Medicine Live Fit program.
So yesterday, I had my health assessment with my athletic trainer, Junius.
Well, needless to say, I am BA and that does not stand for “Bad A??” It means that I am “BELOW AVERAGE!”
To tell you the truth, I cried. How could I have let myself go and become the way I am?
I’ve been having my own pity party. I’m even feeling a little of that as I type this. So many thoughts going through my head. Junius was so helpful and tried to make me feel better. I appreciated that, but hearing and seeing those numbers just makes me want to cry more. That feeling seems to be winning out right now, but there is a part of me that keeps repeating “remember, this is only the beginning and that in 1, 2, 4 months you are going to look back and call yourself a sap.”
I knew that this was not going to be easy, but to get that much reality at the starting point…(OUCH!)
Well, I have to take that news and channel it to motivate me all the more to keep going. And it will! I will not let myself give up on me and I know my family and friends will not let that happen as well.
So on to the next step: preparing myself for the start of my training……
