Run. Jump. Squat. Repeat!

Run. Jump. Squat. Repeat!

Run. Jump. Squat. Repeat!


The past few weeks have been intense as a Lucille Roberts Ambassador. My body has done things it hasn’t done in ages. Honestly, after my first training session with my Lucille Roberts’ Trainer, I didn’t think I would make it. I was bright red, gasping for breath and dripping more sweat than I thought a body could produce! But you know what? I DID IT!

I’m now on my 4th week of training and feel more energized than I’ve felt in the past 2 years. I no longer take power naps. I’ve lowered my coffee intake. I have energy. In sum, I. Feel. GREAT!

When I joined the Lucille Roberts Blog Ambassador program, I wanted to make a change in my life. As a single mom of a two boys, a teen and tween, my life was, and is, hectic. Working from home, exacerbates the situation. I was losing myself. It was no longer Ms. Latina, the woman. I had become Ms. Latina, the mother, business owner, babysitter, chef, tutor, cab driver and a multitude of other titles. I no longer took the time for myself. I was overwhelmed, harried and looked downright frumpy.

Lucille Roberts has given me my mojo back!

I no longer drag myself down the street.

I sashay.

Swaying my hips from side to side, I walk with my back straight and my head held high. I am  Beautiful. I am determined. I am part of a Sisterhood, the Lucille Roberts’ Sisterhood and I am fierce.

I kick arse. Albeit, not as high as I did years ago, but my kicks will one day reach further than they do today.  Till then, I know I am in good hands. Lucille Roberts is providing me with the tools. I am not alone. I am part of a sisterhood!

Let’s talk! Do you prefer to workout alone, with a trainer, or in a group? Let us know in the comments!

How exciting! So happy for you. I would love to workout with a trainer but its so expensive. Maybe later in the year I will be able to treat myself. Keep up the good work.
