Empty Nest and Blessed!
Hi! My name is Tricia. I have been married to my college sweetheart for 27 years and we currently live in a suburb of Austin, Texas. We have one son, Spencer, who is 21 and a Senior Airman in the Air Force. In those 27 years we have moved 10 times and lived in 5 States and 2 Countries.
When I was 39 and living in Canada, I decided that I was sick and tired of being over weight and feeling like crap so I joined WW. I proceeded to lose 56 pounds by eating right, drinking water, walking and strength training.
When we moved back to the USA I decided to add running to my plate. I had a friend challenge me to run a half marathon with her. I thought it was crazy, but I agreed. I completed my first half marathon on April 27, 2014 and went on to run four more. I am still putting in the miles and now enjoying my Bootcamp class.
With all of that you would think I was at my prime and feeling fantastic. I had made it to my goal weight after all and my body fat % was great. What people never saw was the fatigue and the daily naps I needed just to make it through the day. They didn’t see me struggling to go to the bathroom every other day if I was lucky. They didn’t know I was tossing and turning all night, never getting restful sleep. And the migraines that would have me down and out were frustrating.
So what was the missing piece of the puzzle? Balancing my body with quality plant based supplements. Within a few weeks I was going to the bathroom every day. My energy was through the roof and naps were not a necessity anymore. I was sleeping through the night and waking up refreshed and ready to start the day. Over time, the migraines became fewer and fewer. Now they make a rare appearance. And to think, it all started with a pink drink!
My mission is to show women that getting older doesn’t have to mean your body starts falling apart. There is life over 40! You can actually feel better than ever! That is me now, 49 going on 50, and I feel better than I ever did when I was 29! You can too and I can show you how!
