I started a journey for myself in March of this year. After having our twins and deciding that I was going to stay home for the next few years I knew I needed some personal change and development. I wanted to lose some weight and I had finally figured out that I didn’t need to go to a gym to get it done!
My friend had shared with me that she was doing these workouts at home and recommended I try them too. It also just so happened that my coach from a few years ago (when I was trying to get wedding ready) had contacted me shortly after about joining a challenge group. Little did I know these two things were related. I figured it was all a sign to get the ball rolling and stop thinking about a change I was craving for, and to just go for it!
The group was great it kept my accountability up (making sure I was showing up everyday). It also showed me that everyone is busy in life and being healthy is far more attainable than you think. She walked me through what I needed to do the week before we started and we hit the ground running that next Monday!
I am not saying that this wasn’t “challenging.” Especially with any busy household (working or stay at home person) it has its challenges. I am just here to say that any baby step you take in the right directions has a reward! It was motivating to see others working toward the same goal. The workouts were great. I also realized how out of shape I was, which made me more determined to get back to a place I used to be. The reward was not only the physical change and losing 22 pounds in a six month period, but the mental reward as well. I started to realize in this process how my mind, body, and soul are all affected by my health.
I have not reached my final goal, but I will say how liberating it feels to accomplish something that you have been working towards on day at a time. I continue working ion this journey everyday, and everyday I get a little closer. Just like building a house brick by brick!
In this process I decided to become a Beachbody coach and to share and invite others on my journey to a healthier and better you! I have always loved helping others and this was a way for me to help my family physically, mentally, and financially! My passion for health and helping others has flourished into not only a business (which helps me stay at home with our children), but also help others transform their lives into something that will pay it forward for themselves and their families.
