My goal when I started was to make sure that my fitness and nutrition were complimenting each other. I felt I was not eating enough for my intensity of training.
I lost about 4.5 pounds.
I remember being so nervous to sign up to WAG as I am not a very tech-savvy person and worried I would never be able to figure it out. From my first check-in with my wonderful, awesome, amazing coach I knew that I along with her guidance would be able to do this. She was very patient with me and always provided me with a vast amount of information WAG provides for their clients to read on how to navigate around the site, articles related to healthy nutrition and of course delicious recipes.
I was a very insecure person and lacked a lot of confidence as well as second-guessed myself all the time. I stayed within my comfort zone always scared to step outside the box and try something new or explore my true capabilities. Feeling nervous to share my feelings with my coach as I would feel silly, dumb or embarrassed I always remember her saying in the very beginning that it’s very important, to be honest with myself and honest in the process of this nutrition journey. Having all of these issues causes stress within the body and stress can affect the process so I decided one day to share my feelings with her and from that day on something wonderful happened in my life.
Slowly I could see the confidence growing, I started not being so hard on myself and feeling bad for making mistakes in my nutrition journey along with other areas of my life. I could see myself not worrying about what others thought of me and not so hard on needing to be perfect in everything I do or how I look. Having a healthy mind and body I started seeing positive changes in my training, bigger lifts, better endurance just all around feeling stronger!! Then this past April I qualified for the 2019 CanWest Games in the Elite Masters category and had to make the decision to go which of course I did have some thoughts of self-doubt and just plain scared to death. Once again I turned to my coach and she was able to help me refocus and I was able to make the decision to go and take part in this amazing outdoor CrossFit event. I had a wonderful time and at the end of the day, I was able to tell myself I was proud of my accomplishment and truly mean it.
When I sit and reflect on my journey with WAG almost one year ago I realize that this turned out to be so much more than nutrition for me and I can’t be more grateful for WAG and my coach. I tell her almost every check-in I wish I could meet her in person and give her the biggest hug ever! Who would have thought at turning 50 next month I would have learned so much about myself after signing up in this program that was only supposed to be about nutrition.
I cannot say enough good about this program.
