1. Charity’s run to a new life
In an interview with the portal ‘Popsugar,’ Charity Nelms remembers the time before the transformation.
“When I started working, I realized how incredibly hard it was on my body. I was traveling all the time, getting around the world and having adventures, but my body just couldn’t keep up with everything I loved to do,” she says.
So it was her dream job, more than anything else, that finally opened her eyes. She wanted to get her body in shape so she could live the lifestyle she had in mind – and do what she really wanted to do: “Namely, see the world,” Charity adds.
It all started with the app “Couch to 5K,” which she used to encourage herself to run. The app helped her develop an exercise routine and find joy in moving and strengthening her body.
A new interest in workouts took hold of her, and she began writing her workout plans.
“I bought how-to guides, used apps, and researched on YouTube. I never went to the gym but always figured out for myself what I was going to tackle on each day.”
Charity’s first significant victory was getting through a mile without stopping. “I cried like a kid,” she says, describing her first measurable sense of accomplishment.
