We love featuring our everyday GORGOgirls that are inspiring us to crush life and a balanced approach to fitness.
Meet Katharine Millar.
Tell us about your fitness life.
I am at the toughest part of my fitness journey again...GETTING STARTED! After being in the best shape I have ever been in, I had my 4th and final child a year and a half ago. I am starting over in terms of needing to lose weight, workout, eat better, and fitting in “me” time, etc. It’s so hard to put yourself ahead of your children and family life. I love weights, group HIIT classes, and just about every sport out there. The nice thing this time around is that I know I can do it because I already have. I’ll get there eventually so I don’t stress about it or get down on myself at all. I just keep putting one foot in front of the other, and focus on making small changes knowing each one counts!
Tell us about your non-fitness life.
I am a wife and mama to 3 active boys (10, 8, 6) and a sweet baby girl (1 1/2). I own and operate with my husband a successful moving company that my father in law started 50 years ago this year.
What do you love about GORGO?
I love everything about GORGO and what it represents for so many different women. Most of all, I love that I can be myself! I can be surrounded by women and never feel judged. I am there to inspire and be inspired. Every year, I experience something different which leaves me feeling so incredibly empowered & motivated.
Any fun facts?
I love to travel! Cruising especially, and mainly because the food is fantastic and I love to eat. I started taking piano lessons this year in a simple attempt to get back at doing something for me.
Anything else you want to say?
I want to tell all those struggling women out there who think they’re the only ones who find it difficult to make time for themselves or aren’t able to get or stay motivated to keep going. Don’t give up, you’ll get there, you just have to keep trying!!! Even those that appear to have it all together, or have the body that you one day hope to have, experience their own struggles as well. We all have days, weeks, or months that we can’t seem to get our sh#%* together. Everyone has to work hard for what they want whether you’re just starting out or been at it for years! Don’t give up on yourself... you’re worth it!
Anything about camp GORGO you'd like to mention? What made you want to attend this year, why do you look forward to it? Favorite part? Etc....
I look forward to it every year and it’s something in my life that is just for me. Camp GORGO is a weekend of empowerment, a weekend to make new friends and connect with old ones. It is a weekend to really fuel, inspire, and motivate one another. Everyone that attends contributes in some way even, if they don’t realize it. We are a family of like-minded women and I am so blessed to have found this tribe :)
