My December Challenge: A Fitter and Healthier Me, This Is My Remarkable Journey – By Chantel Griffin
I would to share with you my fitness journey.
Before I start sharing I thought I would tell you a little about myself.
My name is Chantel Griffin and I am 47 years “young”. I am a mother to two stunning children, my daughter Melissa and my son Chad. I am also a grandmother of a beautiful granddaughter Mia.
I am a relatively healthy individual who has always battled somewhat with my fitness and weight, more so now that I am in my forties. In addition, I suffer from a condition called Fibromyalgia, which makes it more difficult for me to follow a fitness regime due to the pain that any activity causes me. I have chosen however to not let this illness ruin or rule my life. I have chosen to take the high road.
A colleague of mine, Tracey, challenged me at the beginning of December to incorporate into my walking schedule a little light running. I must say that I took this challenge by the horns and showed it who was boss.
I have managed to up my running skill to a total of 15 minutes on my 45-minute walk. I cannot state categorically that running is for me. I did have an amazing time though putting this challenge into practise.
This challenge has inspired me to be more proactive about challenging myself fitness-wise. I have registered to commence with a “Jenna Carmen 8 Week Challenge”. The challenge commences on the 15th of January 2018. I am SUPER excited to begin this new chapter of my life. Jenna Carmen has put together a personal health and wellness plan together for me, keeping my “limitations” in mind.
I have also dragged my entire family into this challenge, Melissa and Paul my hubby and a couple of colleagues at my place of work. Their excitement fuels my excitement to succeed.
Given the above I would also like to note that since commencing on this “challenge”, I am more focused and feel so energised to take on ANYTHING!!
Thank you again to Karen Wessels for putting forward this challenge to her Team and continually challenging us to be better individuals and to think outside of the box.
