Fast forward to my early 40’s….
My husband at the time came home and told me he met a young man who was a personal trainer with lots of energy and he thought I would like him, so he gifted me with several sessions. Off I went to the gym, 3 mornings a week at 6 a.m. for my workouts!
I ended up working with that trainer for 6 years!
I became a women’s Boot Camp Instructor!
I went to the gym, ran, lifted and drank protein shakes for 6 years…….until after returning home from a trip to a great fitness resort and spa. I bent down and instantly felt a pop in my lower back! Turns out, I herniated a disk! I cried out in excruciating pain and could not walk. After being on bedrest and having surgery, I began my path to recovery. I’m still on that path. It’s been a 13 year journey; one of chronic pain, pain medicine, pain injections, special diets, physical therapy, acupuncture and alternative healers.
I’ve lived in constant fear of re-injuring my back and have babied myself when it came to working out!
One day about two years ago, I saw a post on Facebook about the Guinness World Record Book holder for the oldest female bodybuilder. Her name is Earnestine Shepherd. I started dreaming about the possibility of having a more muscular body, but the fear was still in the back of my mind. I researched her trainer and saw that he is located in Maryland, not far from me.
I started asking myself if I could get the same type of results. If he could do it with her, why not me? But you know how life gets in the way. I’m sure you have wanted something with every fiber of your being and you didn’t go after it. Why? What are you afraid of?
Me………I was afraid of injuring my back again but I was also (in the back of my mind) afraid of my own greatness. I feared stepping outside of that comfortable box I was in. So, here we are two years later with that little white piece of paper (see my last post) in my hand and the word OVERWEIGHT in my face! I knew I could no longer ignore my dream or my healing.
So I made a decision that day!! I hired Earnestine’s trainer!! I hiredYohnnie Shombourger. At the age of 42, Yohnnie won the gold medal in bodybuilding at the Pan-American Games in Argentina and he captained the US team in Guam at the IFBB World Amateur Body Building Championship and won a gold medal and earning the title of Mr. Universe! Here’s Yohnnie with Earnestine!
I’ve stepped out on faith. I know in my heart, with Yohnnie’s support and training he’s the best person to help me in making my dream come true. For now, I’ve set the goal to be in bikini shape by my 60th birthday, which is May 5, 2016!
Yes, you read that right!! I’ve never worn a bikini in my life. So, not only will I be getting in bikini shape, I am also going to do a photo shoot and post my pictures on my blog!
