Checking in with the Fit Crew

Thalia Gonzalez

How the week went: This week was very challenging because when I’m around most of my family, they eat meals that I can’t but so far the scale says that I’ve lost five pounds and I am very proud of myself.

Blog excerpt: The week coming up, I will challenge myself to lose weight and try better workouts.

Kerrin Kramer

How the week went: My mom, sister and I have gone to the YMCA together, and we have walked miles together and worked out together.

Blog excerpt: I also used some of the strength machines, and was told that for my age, I am very strong.

Quinten Scroggs

How the week went: Now that I’m back from vacation, my diet is no longer crazy and I’m back working out at the Y. My trainer showed me how to operate the tougher equipment so I can step it up in the workout room.

Blog excerpt: I learned this week that there are better alternatives to normal food types. I personally think that almond butter tastes better than normal peanut butter, and that coconut flour is much better for you than normal flour. So even if something sounds sort of weird, give it a shot before you turn it down.

Anna Shaffer

How the week went: As far as the past week has gone, I lost two pounds. It has been a great week and I’m starting to enjoy working out more and more. I can’t wait to see what the next few weeks have in store!

Blog excerpt: This week I also met with the (dietitian) at Parkview (Hospital). She gave us so many great pointers on healthy eating. At the meeting there were also recipes that are low calorie and very nutritious.

Kaitlin Toliver

How the week went: I’m away at church camp, and I guess (I) gained some weight. But I know that I’ll just keep working harder.

Blog excerpt: Also we had a really cool color run this morning (at church camp). It was a 3K, and I mostly walked the 3K. I got so much color today that I looked like a rainbow!
