LiveFit Challenge Week 1: Lisa’s Update

Lisa Lensmire is a patient access representative at Aurora BayCare Medical Center Rehabilitation Services.

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……

You have one heck of a plan for you Lisa. You are off to achieve great things. I am so proud of you for taking this challenge on!!
