My Journey to Health – Week 23

click here. Since I have been going to the gym and eating better, it has been pretty good. After this week, though, I am miserable, bloated and crampy. The worst part is knowing that I did it to myself! Something has gotta give. This weeks plan is to get my head back into the game. I refuse to live my life in pain cause I gave into some stupid temptation. I guess everybody has setbacks. I’m not beating myself to a bloody pulp, but I think we all deserve a good scolding every now and then. When I was a kid, my Daddy used to say he whipped us once a week, whether we needed it or not, just so we knew he was the boss. Well, this will be my week for that. This is weigh in week too. I didn’t forget that. I stepped on the scale and I know that it wasn’t what it could have been, but it was a loss. I now weigh 225. That is 11 pounds. Slowly but surely. Now, on to the inches! Bust: -1 Chest: -1 Waist: -1 Right Arm: no change Left Arm: -.5 Fat Roll: -1.5 Right Thigh: -.5 Left Thigh: no change Hips: -1 Thighs: -2 That makes a grand total of 45.5 inches lost! I feel really good about that. Lots more to go though. But I feel like I am well on my way. I’ll see you guys next week. Until then, I really hope to see you in the gym. We all have to work together toward one goal. It’s not about being skinny, it’s about being healthy and strong.It’s high time you started your own journey.]]]]> ]]>

Vicksburg Warren School District Resource Officer LaToria Kimble is putting her fitness lifestyle to use as a beach body coach.

Kimble, who has been in law enforcement for 11 years, is now prepared to help others on their fitness journey.

“Someone reached out to me on Instagram and that’s how I got started with becoming a beach body coach,” Kimble said. “I’m in it to motivate people on working out, eating healthy and staying in shape.”

Kimble’s lifestyle of fitness started in junior high school when she ran track. She continues to remain in shape as an adult.

As a beach body coach, Kimble will stay up to date on many new forms of workouts.

“I will be learning different types of workouts, going through videos and being a product of what I will be coaching,” Kimble said.

Kimble has set goals for herself as a beach body coach, and she plans to fulfill every one of them.

“My main goal is to motivate as many people as possible,” Kimble said. “I want my clients to know that working out is more than just about losing weight, I want to teach them how to have peace of mind and to gain more energy.”

In just a few weeks, Kimble will have reached another goal in her life: becoming a certified personal trainer.

82-year-old woman puts attacker in the hospital

There’s never a good time to mess with a body builder, even if she’s 82-years-old.

Willie Murphy, from Rochester, N.Y., can deadlift 230 pounds, and she works out at her local YMCA every day. She set state weight-lifting records in her 70s, and she’s been featured on ESPN. She still competes—and wins—in competition.

Last week, when a man attempted to rob her in her home, Murphy proved she was no pushover.

“He picked the wrong house to break into,” she told CNN.

As Murphy was preparing for bed, a man pounded on her door, saying he was sick and needed an ambulance. She called 911 but was suspicious and didn’t let him in.

When he kicked down the door, Murphy fought back, bashing him with a table until it broke. She then jumped on top of him and emptied a bottle of shampoo in his eyes, blinding him.

Murphy let the man up, but then beat him with a broom until the police arrived.

Without a doubt, the man was happier than she was to give himself up to the cops, who praised Murphy for her quick thinking.

And he got his wish: The suspect was taken to the hospital.
