I completed my first 90-day challenge without cheating, and completely sticking to my plan. I saw results because of it. For the first time in my life, I had something to be proud of. The feeling of empowerment when you realize that you are in full control of your life is indescribable and something that I feel is my duty to share and teach.
Are you ready to start your transformation?
It was December of 2011 and I had decided that I was going to start making a positive change by getting healthy. I was going to the gym for 2-3 hours a day with a friend, staying focused, and away from the booze. Although I was on the right path, I didn't really know what to do with myself at a gym. I was one of those people that wandered around, dabbling in a couple things never really getting anything done. What I was doing wasn’t providing me the results that I wanted. Around the same time a friend of mine had asked me to join a fitness challenge group. In this challenge, we did workouts at home by following a DVD, and drank something called Shakeology. I had seen before and after pictures on television from such programs and always thought that they were fake, but my friend insisted that this was trustworthy. I had nothing to lose, so I went for it and joined a January New Year, New You, fitness challenge. I was dead set on getting that new me! I had never finished any kind of fitness program before but I made the decision that THIS time it would be different, and I could feel that it was.
a horrible place both physically and mentally. I had always felt that I was meant for something bigger, but I let a life long battle with anxiety and depression hold me back from becoming what I wanted to become. I used it as an excuse not to make tough changes. One day I finally realized that I had a choice...I could either make a change, or live the rest of my life unhappy, not satisfied, and never achieving the greatness I felt inside. I wasn't sure HOW I was going to make that change, but knew I WAS going to make it.
I committed to a fitness program that showed me exactly what to do each day, I was held accountable in a private Facebook group by people I didn't know, and I had an easy to follow nutrition plan. On top of that, I had a coach who would message me to check in, or that I could message if I needed support. This time felt right...something in my brain, in my body felt different...I was going to do it, and I did!
In the past, my lack of confidence held me back from every completing a program. This was something I struggled with for as long as I can remember. Low self-esteem held me back from so many things in my life. I would compensate by making jokes about myself, and being a "party girl" so that people would “like me”. The fact of the matter was that under that party girl joker there was absolutely nothing for me to be proud of. As I pushed through that first challenge group I quickly began to realize that confidence was something that can be learned!
Today I am the CEO of my own business and have partnered up with a company called Beachbody. Making health, fitness, and personal development a priority helped me to develop confidence and change my life for the better. Every day I strive to pass that message on to others who are in the same place that I was. I am extremely passionate about this mission, and it fulfills my heart.
