I too feel excited and nervous to participate in the 8ww. I had the opportunity to start the program with the Kambeitz Chiropractic staff when I just started to learn about the program. I feel that I eat well, but don’t always take care of myself well – I don’t get enough sleep, I don’t really enjoy working out, I don’t plan my meals and will often skip meals when I’m busy.
I definitely think this program can be an opportunity to learn how to do better things for myself from nutrition to exercise. I was active and athletic in high school and college and enjoyed the structure from high school cross country to college ski team. After college there was a while that I enjoyed going to the gym, and a while that I enjoyed running with a friend. I enjoy less structured sports like biking (road and mountain), skiing, and hiking 14ers, but these are all rather seasonal sports.
I would like to improve my strength for hiking, biking and skiing and avoid some of the injuries from these sports that continually pester me. I also think this program will allow me to be more introspective on how I can maintain a lifetime of good health while I’m still in my 20’s before I reach my 30’s!
