Employee Spotlight – Kelley Baber
This week we are featuring another employee – Kelley Baber! Read through what she had to say about her current wellness journey in our Q & A session.
What is your motivation in your wellness journey?
Well, my husband is extremely fit, so I need to try to keep up with him! But really, I just feel so much better when I am eating right and being consistent with my workouts.
What is your weekly exercise routine?
Currently, I am working my way through the Morning Meltdown 100 video series on Beach Body on Demand – I do four 30-minute workouts each week. I am so grateful to have access to these workout videos through DIG! I am nearly done with this series, and I plan to tackle the Barre series next. I also take our dog on a brisk 15-minute walk every day.
What has been the best part of this journey?
Finally understanding that it is a journey; it is never a quick fix.
What do you find is a daily struggle?
For me, it is eating well. I really like carbs and sugar! Unfortunately, I am usually “all in” or “all out” with my dedication to healthy eating, so my struggle is to maintain a medium ground where I can still enjoy things now and then, without completely going out of control!
What is your favorite part about exercise?
I love that there are so many different options, so I can keep changing it up and not get bored.
Where are you currently seeing success?
I am feeling a lot stronger and am seeing a little more tone in my muscles. I am not seeing much weight loss, but I am feeling more in control of my cravings.
What are you the most proud of?
The Morning Meltdown 100 series has some really crazy, intense moves, and I am proud to see how I have progressed in my modifications throughout the five phases!
If someone wanted to start their own journey – how would you encourage them?
It is just a lot of little changes, done consistently. Start with one change and continue adding as you go. It is overwhelming if you look at the big picture, but much more doable if you tackle it in small batches. And most importantly, find one or two accountability partners who will encourage you and ask about your progress!
