Feltner: 'Cheating on my diet is not an option'

FIT Staff
Jul 9, 2013

Well let me start off by saying it has been a pretty good past week.

I met my trainer Shawn Zahel on Monday at NOMS.

He seems like a pretty cool guy. We worked out a couple times this past week and it didn't take long for me to realize that I was out of the "grove."

Sweating hard and breathing heavy. I wouldn't have it any other way, though.

I am glad to be back in the gym, although my legs were pretty sore. I know this wont be easy, but no one said it would be.

I am ready to prove myself. I'm sure that Shawn will agree with me that, no matter how tough it gets, I always try to push myself harder and harder.

I have set a weight loss goal for the challenge, I'm locked on target and I will not stray off my path.

The days that I was not in the gym with Shawn, a friend of mine and myself head downtown or out to Sheldon's Marsh to take a nice long walk.

On the other side of things, I think the dieting is harder than working out in the gym.
I have changed what I eat, how much I eat and what time of the day I eat.
I am proud to say that so far I have done good on my diet and not slipped up.
This FIT Challenge is very important to me and cheating on my diet is not an option. I have been eating chicken breasts, salad, fruits and veggies, and stuck to water only.
I will be meeting with a nutritionist this coming week to help me tighten up my diet and see exactly what to eat and what to stay away from.
I am ready to start week 2 and keep the momentum going.
I know Shawn will continue to push me and the workouts will get tougher. Then I will get tougher and the breathing will get easier. Good luck to the rest of the contestants and keep up the good work.
