It was an exciting time for Dr. Taryn Williams and her family.
After having to cancel a trip to Universal Studios during Covid,
she was finally all rescheduled and ready to go.
In fact, she and her husband Sy,
were planning on surprising their daughters,
Olivia and Isla, with the news Christmas morning.
Then they would take off to Florida a few days later.
A great plan that unfortunately hit a major snag,
when Taryn suffered a painful foot injury.
That painful injury happened while Taryn was doing
a Tabata sprint at boot camp class.
Suddenly, she felt a pop in the ball of her left foot.
Immediately, she was unable to stand on it.

My time here at BUFFnation has been the best start to the year I could have asked for. And as they say at BN, I experienced so many WINS - including releasing 8 kilos (about 17 pounds!).

My outlook on life has changed, and getting enough sleep has helped me stay motivated and happy.
When I started this internship, I was 89 kilos, and within a month and a half of implementing the BN principals, my weight released. I have released seven kilos while having three meals a day, and I achieved that without dieting, just little lifestyle changes or what BN calls "small steps.". I now understand the significance of routines! I plan to continue doing this...
