Six Aurora BayCare Medical Center employees 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.
A flood of emotion filled my head when I heard the words, “you have been chosen as one of the six to train for the LiveFit Triathlon”. I was hoping and praying to hear those words and I did!
I have a feeling of excitement, worries of body aches and some anxiety that an old foot injury from 2001 doesn’t flare up and cause a problem for my journey. From the moment I applied, I have told not only myself, but my family, that things are going to be changing in the upcoming months and it will be for the better. My husband and daughters are behind me 100%.
I have started a new calendar for 2013, and I look forward to adding my workout schedule to it! I’ve been told that once I start working out and eating better, my old ways of eating and not working out will be fading into the past. Going from my job directly over to the Aurora BayCare Sport Medicine Center will be a bonus. When I plan to work out after I get home, something else always gets in the way, like cleaning or putting in a load of wash. Now, I’ll be putting myself first!
I know there will be struggles, aches and pains, but all will be worth it to live a stronger, healthier, happy life.
Off I go! What an honor!
