Then & Now

“I love the person I have become, because I fought to become her”

In 2012, I was exhausted.
My default face was the one pictured. That screenshot actually came from a VIDEO that I STILL can’t bear to watch. I went on CAMERA with that scowl.

In 2012, I decided I had enough. I wanted to make a change
I signed up for my first 5K.

I had no idea what I was doing (which you can see… I wore a race shirt DURING the race).

But I finished.

Every single day, I have worked to be a little bit better. I worked my way from Ramen Noodles, to Spaghetti Squash and from 5Ks to marathons.

I worked on my self… because we all know you cannot serve from an empty cup.

It isn’t easy.

Five years later, my face isn’t always in a scowl.
I smile.
I work hard, and understand that change comes with discomfort.
I want you to realize that YOU can do it… and that I’m here to help you every step of the way.

Whether it’s on a rower or in one of my online challenge groups, I want you to know that I’ve got your back.

I still have a couple more spots left in my upcoming challenge group – so if you are ready to make a change, all you have to do is reach out.


Transformation Tuesday

It’s Transformation Tuesday.

Usually you’ll see a bunch of before & after photos flooding your social media pages today, but I’m going to dare you to do something different.

How are you FEELING?

In my current PiYo & Happiness Challenge Group, we are talking about not only our physical changes, but our mental & emotional changes. Being healthy doesn’t just mean you are at a certain weight – it also looks at your mental wellness.

So today, I’m challenging you to acknowledge your mental & emotional transformation. Are you happy with where you are? Have you let stress come in and wreck havoc on you and your relationships?

I approach fitness as a whole – and if you are looking to get back on track, physically and mentally, send me a message! I have a couple spots for a couple more people who are ready to get back on track.

“Let no one but you, define you.”

This hit me like a ton of bricks today, so I’m sharing it with you. We, as people, are always trying to define things and measure their success. However, YOU are the only one that is able to define who YOU are, and YOU are the only one who is able to define your success. No one else. Not that magazine. Not that news article. Not your coworker. Not your boss. Not your friend. No one.

Just you.

When I’m teaching TRX or leading my challenge groups, I always stress that you need to define success for yourself. You need to set your limits, and only YOU know when you are pushing yourself. I’m just the person who is there for that moment to guide you – but you yourself are your only leader, your only definer and your only measure of success.

If you want me to help guide you through your fitness challenges, let me know. My next challenge group starts on 10/10, and will focus on strengthening our bodies through PiYo and our mind through some Yoga. Send me a note if you are interested 🙂
