New Year, New Me, 35 Pounds Lighter

by Migdalia Rivera

Thanks to my wonderful friend Carolyn,  I am now a Lucille Roberts Ambassador. I’m beyond excited! I know that this will help me meet my resolution.

My workout sessions started today. In fairytale Ms. Latina land, the boys would wake up and get dressed on time, the dogs would behave and I would be able to get my pre-workout during the 20 block walk to the gym so that I can start my 7:30am training session on time. Of course in reality,  Ms. Latina land is very different and I have to fight for my “Me” time.

Is it worth it?

Of course!


Because I am worth it!

I was invigorated just walking into Lucille Roberts. Seeing the gleaming workout machines, hearing the warm good morning as I passed the check in area and feeling the trainer’s energy invigorated me. I was hyped and raring to go.

Of course, this was before I started my session. My trainer, Diana, went at a pace I could follow but I must admit my legs were like tembleque/pudding and my muscles, or non-muscles in my case, were screaming BASTA/STOP. And this was only after 10minutes, I still had 20 more to go!

Thankfully, I am more determined to lose these 35 pounds than my body is to workout and was able to complete the session. I just hope the next time I’m not so rushed that I don’t wear my pants backward! Yes, Ms. Latina fantasy land…

Let’s Talk! Are you starting a workout regimen this year? How do you incorporate it into your busy life? Share your tips in a comment.
