I have been battling diabetes for 23 years and could not find the balance between diet, exercise, and insulin. Growing up I was never athletic and diabetes kept me away from physical activity. Four years ago I started running and loved the way I felt, but I could never run without a big drop in my blood sugar. I have run 3 marathons but never felt physically fit to take it to the next level.
My Relentless journey began 6 months ago with a visit to my doctor for diabetes. As I am sitting in my doctor’s office with tears of frustration and the scale tipping the heaviest I’ve ever been at 172lbs, I was open to anything. My doctor asks if I heard of the Paleo Diet…
My good friend, Coach Kat Grosshaupt, introduced me to FUEL 21. In 21 days, I saw great success but knew there was a missing piece to the puzzle. That is when I found Relentless Athletic Training. By combining the Paleo lifestyle and Relentless Athletic Training, I have experienced success beyond my wildest dreams! Since joining Relentless I am a completely different person on the inside and out. I have lost 22lbs, 2 dress sizes, dropped over 10% body fat, and 13 inches!
I am setting goals, breaking barriers and accomplishing things I never thought I could. I am stronger, leaner and more confident. I now work out 4 times a week without any problems. My blood sugars are the best they have ever been. In a period of 3 months, I have shaved 4 minutes off my mile time, 3 minutes off my 5K time, and in January I plan to set a PR on my marathon time.
My class, “Wilke Warriors,”and Coach Kat Grosshaupt, are an amazing group of people. Due to their constant support and encouragement, I have accomplished huge physical and mental feats.
I am a CHAMPION because of each and every one of you!
