Favorite fitness activity: Running with friends

Recent Milestone: I have lost 65 lbs since I had joined Weight Watchers in Feb 2016.

What is the secret to your success? I am a bit of a competitive person, so I get motivated by seeing others and having my own competition with them. I also started Weight Watchers when I signed up for movecoach, and running became a big part of my weight- loss journey. I had started a Couch to 5K app in January 2016, then two months later, once we had the movecoach app available to us, I started using movecoach for tracking my steps, running, strength training, circuit training, and other workouts.

What is the biggest challenge to moving more? After awhile, exercise becomes boring. I try to find new ways of doing exercises besides running. I started taking a circuit training class at our gym and doing HIIT videos.

What is the most rewarding part of participating in a movecoach Challenge? I get motivated by seeing all the new people signing on. I like that we are very much supported by our company to have a healthy lifestyle.

Best advice:  Don't give up! When you're not feeling up to working out, just don't think about it, and go for the run, walk, class...whatever it is to get you up and moving.  You never regret working out...but you do regret it when you don't.

Next goal: I’m training for the Mermaid Half Marathon in May, the 5K Bubble Run in July, then the Rock n’Roll Las Vegas 10K in November to celebrate my 40th birthday.
