Welcome to the Power HIIT Fitness Blog, "PHIIT News". Watch for new editions as we widen our scope covering a variety of subjects, we feel can benefit our Power HIIT Fitness Family in any and all things related to our physical and mental well being.
I must confess, though, I truly hate writing! It stresses me out. I am a doer not a writer. Alas, I am giving in (or maybe giving up) to the encouragement of others to begin this blog.
PHIIT News will not be a normal blog per say, because I am not a normal thinker. My mind is always in creation mode it seems. So, I imagine this blog to form into more of a “scrapbook” of things good, bad, pretty and ugly involving health and wellness.
PHIIT News will contain varieties of things that are interesting or of value to me, rather than consist of a series of methodical writings relayed in a snoozer, organized, encyclopedia style approach. Maybe in the randomness, others will find something that adds some value or insight to their lives.
So here goes nothing! :)
A little about me:
My name is Deborah McCurdy. I am the owner of Power HIIT Fitness LLC in Pleasant Grove, UT. I am a wife, mother of 5, and a grandmother of 6. I find myself in a middle aged body that screams for fitness.
Several years ago, I found myself in a not so healthy state. After several tests (the typical tests for a 50 year old female), It was discovered that I had osteopenia, which is the precursor to osteoporosis. My bones literally ached from the inside out. I was also suffering with a wildly irritated piriformis muscle which I assumed was sciatica. I wasn't sleeping well, and I was extremely deficient in several key vitamins and minerals. I literally felt like I was falling apart. Sadly, I put on a few pounds trying to deal with all of the above.
While working on the various remedies for these "Ailments", the ridiculous happened, and I broke my foot as I flipped a 4-wheeler ATV right over the top of me. Long story short, the foot required a boot for 3 months. Over the course of which I gained 20 pounds due to inactivity.
I felt hopeless and out of control of my body, which certainly had negative effects on my psyche.
On that note, and in that state of thinking, my fitness journey began.
To be continued....
