BetterU participant and single-mom Melrose Lewis is striving to make healthy choices instead of defaulting to emotional eating and lack of exercise during stressful times.
This has been a very stressful week for me. These past few weeks I have endured some difficult times. My car was totaled in a car accident and I had a 2nd degree burn on my arm.
Not having my own car was a challenge but I still made it a point to get to the gym as much as I could.
I am an emotional eater and some of the food choices I made were not the greatest. No matter what has been going on, I still had BetterU at the front of my mind, and made some good choices.
Being a single mom and having to take my daughter to dance and work in the evenings made my gym time later than I wanted. I still went and every time I walked through
the doors of Gold’s Gym, I was always greeted with a smile by the staff. I really appreciate that
warm greeting especially after having a stressful and busy day. I loved the yoga session at the Hudson Valley Healing Center. Serenity now, serenity now!!
I am no quitter and each new day is an opportunity to make better choices. Thank you American Heart Association!!! I will break the cycle of obesity and heart disease.
