Thank you for your testimonial, Marcia. We're so glad you are a part of Healthy Inspirations.
“You know how that James Brown song goes- - “I feel good, and I knew that I would…” well, that is what I keep singing to myself. Okay, that and that new song “Happy”!
This month represents some mighty fine milestones in my life. I have lost 28 inches and almost 50 pounds AND have been cancer free for 5 years. That must be why I have those songs stuck in my head! I have my oncologist to thank for getting me to come to Healthy Inspirations. I hate to say it, but it took me a couple years before I was ready to face the fact that he was right, I needed to do something to stop gaining weight.
Once I made up my mind to just go down there and see what’s what, it was like the ball had started to roll. I met Linda Lex who explained how it would work, that seemed like something I could handle – just real food, yeah, I liked the sound of that. Then I met with a counselor three times a week and started working out. Doing the circuit seemed so easy, but it was part of the plan, so I did it. Then I added the abs (core) classes and yoga sessions to my routine. And the ball kept rolling. My strength increased and I was not winded when I got to the top of the stairs anymore… and people started complimenting me all the time.
I now meet with Malia every month for a personal training session where I learn new exercises that I can do on my own when I am there doing the circuit. The monthly HI Feasts are my time to learn more about how easy it can be to prepare and eat nutritious meals. It has been a wonderful journey – and I plan to continue to work out there – forever. Thank you Linda, Malia and Diane - - you rescued me.” Marcia Fischbeck
