NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – It’s a story about intestinal fortitude, how one mother gave herself a fitness goal, but along the way found a more suitable destination.

Like many moms, Adrienne Ford had life figured out — a secure job providing the best for her twin boys, Aiden and Austin.

“I really hope to teach them stick-to-it-tiveness. Just about being goal-oriented,” Ford told CBS2’s Steve Overmyer.

Her goal was to lose weight. Her method was boxing. The results have been shocking.

Ford is now the No. 1 ranked amateur in New York and the favorite to win the Golden Gloves next week — at the age of 33, and as a mother.

“I was a nursing mother of twins, which was very demanding. It wasn’t until I stopped nursing them I felt like I could reclaim myself. And I had to do it, for my spirit, for them,” Ford said.
