Here is Gerber. Gawgeous ain’t she? She’s a hair stylist at world renowned salon Duafe and she’s also a make up artist. Well, last year I became her trainer, then she was in a car accident and had to stop for a bit. Now here we are together again! ^-^ As a trainer my main concern is Gerber’s health and the pressure that she is putting on her joints. If for no other reason G loses weight, she will feel and notice a significant difference in regards to the loads that are placed on her body. I meet with her Tuesday and Thursday early, early mornings (while the majority of the east coast is still dreaming about Batman, Beyonce & Bane.) We do fitness and talk about dietary changes- progress/setbacks/ next steps. For Lent (perfect timing) she’s on a path to make changes that will positively impact her diet. We’re gonna do this week by week making gradual changes that we hope end in a success story.
What I like about Gerber:
- She will push herself
- She listens
What I want her to work on:
- Believing in herself
- Not letting her environment influence her decisions
This first week, I propose that she cut the dairy out her diet. What the problem with dairy?? Well I’ll explain that in another post, yup I’ll dedicate a post to dairy-the good, the bad && the ugly. Since December 2012, I’ve been pressing G to get her 64 oz in daily of water. So in addition to cutting the dairy, she’s being diligent about drinking water. Gotta get that H2O in!
Cutting out dairy including:
- cheese/butter/milk/ice cream/ yogurt/ cream cheese/ etc
Her Whole Food’s shopping list looks a little something like:
- Non dairy yogurt
- Non dairy cheese
- Non dairy butter
- Vanilla Silk
I asked her to choose a weekend day to do some physical activity in addition to the two days I come. So her work is cut out for her, but she got it.
So this is Gerber’s story told via me! – Starting today Feb 12, 2013 and documenting her journey for 40+ days to a healthier lifestyle.
