Profiles that Inspire – May

May is 46 years old, resides in Lloydminster and is a Mom to two sons Kyle 23, and Tyrell 19, and three girls Darby 21, Keara 16, and Alysa 15. She is a Nana to one grandson, Zaidyn 18 months.

I joined Women Warriors for me! To build my self-esteem, lose weight and feel good about myself. I enjoy walking and since starting Women Warriors I walk 8 kms with my friend everyday. I exercise 2-3 hours per day and I do it all at home or walking outside. I get up early to workout, put my pedometer on, and that’s my inspiration – to get 10,000 steps everyday.

I practice self-love everyday by talking to my friend whom inspires me to want to do more for myself. To want to do stuff for me because I never do! I always do everything for my kids and hubby, and have always felt guilty for doing stuff for myself.

My favorite treat used to be Pepsi, but not anymore! Since I joined Women Warriors I quit drinking pop and only drink lemon water.

My daily struggle is to push myself everyday to do the daily exercises and walking.

The advice I would give my younger self is to never give up and believe in your self! I can do this and I’m going to do this!

My words of inspiration for women trying to get healthy or more active are to just do it! I finally have done it and I really enjoying exercising and eating healthy for my family and me! Being active and getting healthy is great!
