Greensboro, NC - We all want to look and feel great. The problem is, we want fast results and that never gets us anywhere. It's a process. That's why over the next six months, WFMY News 2's Tracey McCain will be spearheading a new series called 2 A New You.
Tracey and Fitness Philanthropist April Hartsook will lead and train a group of women who all want to reach their fitness goals.
The women in the group are Jessica Culler, Angie Hinshaw, Tammy Sullivan, Mitra Higgins, Heather Waddell and Kelli Carpenter. For the next six months April Hartsook will work with them on the four key areas of life:
Mental ( in our capacity to control what we think )
Emotional ( in our capacity to control how we allow events and others to determine how we feel)
Physical ( in our capacity to change the condition of our bodies through healthier choices and exercise)
Spiritual ( in our capacity to find love and support in each other and surround ourselves with those who wish to see us succeed and who are willing to help get us there)
"My goal is to teach the world that we are responsible for the condition we find ourselves in and when we place expectations upon ourselves to get results. When we are willing to do something different, the cycle never ends," said Hartsook.
Wednesday on the Good Morning Show we took the first steps by throwing out the scale, recording measurements and taking pictures instead. This way the women could set realistic and obtainable goals.
Each participant in the group has a different goal. "I want to be there for my 20-month-old son," said Angie Hinshaw. "I want to keep up with him and do things with him.
Watch with us as these women transform their attitudes and bodies over the next six months. We'll continue to update you on WFMY News 2's the Good Morning Show and on facebook. You can also visit www.aprilhartsook.com for more information.
