Life events, holidays, unforeseen stresses; there are a host of circumstances that lead us into a downward spiral of weight gain and self-loathing. I’m sure most of us, especially women, can identify with a 10-pound fluctuation. We all have our skinny jeans and our black “fat pants” that we wear alternatively.
Two years ago I experienced a series of events: divorce, surgery, the recession and a few other nasty surprises that resulted in complete upheaval in every aspect of my life, leaving me alone in a stormy sea to rebuild everything from scratch, which I did, though I sometimes found comfort in empty carbs and sweets.
In the past I was able to use my experience as a dancer to implement the daily modifications necessary to take the weight off. But I was younger then. I knew that to win the final battle and give both my clients and projects the best new version of myself with my mind and body in balance I was going to need a new plan. Older, wiser and saner, I knew this time, I was going to have to ask for help.
Enter Scott Bitterman of Emerge Athletics, who agreed to help me get back into fighting shape for my new life on and off camera. Feb. 14 — Valentine’s Day –┬á was my first day with Scott, a strength and conditioning specialist who gave me the perfect treat: a real plan to lose 20 pounds in six weeks!
After a long and detailed assessment of my current body, it was time for the first workout, a combination of jogging and sprinting intervals on the treadmill mixed with crunches and spider crawls with pushups. Easy? I think not. But after an hour of jumping, sweating and maybe some cursing, I felt amazing. I left the first session feeling that I was now in the hands of a man with the intelligence, expertise and genuine caring to make my plan a success.
