LiveFit Challenge Week 3: Amy’s Update

Amy Fischer is a registered nurse at Aurora BayCare Medical Center in Green Bay.

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. 

Amy Fischer shares her week 3 triathlon training results:

“This week,  I am having a divide and conquer take on life.  I am feeling more inspired, surprising myself with every workout.  I go into a workout thinking, ‘ I’ll never be able to do such a task,’  but then I push myself.  This past week I ran for 20 minutes at 5.5 MPH.  That’s less than an 11 minute mile, and a 10 minute mile was my average in high school.  This was a huge accomplishment for myself!

That stubborn scale finally moved down again this week also!!! As Linda says, “I don’t think I’ve ever worked so hard for 2 stinking pounds.”

As for the divide:  taking on this challenge,  I realized how much time this would take.  I have people around me who did not understand my time would be so consumed, and those are the people I need to not let bother me.  I do enjoy doing fun things every now and then, but with my time being so spoken for, my family comes first, and needs to continue to do so.

I am thankful for the support from my husband, because without his support there would be no way I could take on such a challenge with three kids.  Homework, housework, packing lunches….he is definitely carrying the weight on these daily tasks.

I am very thankful to have such strong support in my life.  These are the type of people I need to surround myself with!”
