Find what works for YOU

Not everyone is a runner.
Not everyone can do hours of yoga.
Not everyone wants to lift weights.
Not everyone wants abs.
Not everyone aspires to be shredded. 
Not everyone wants to count calories.
Not everyone wants to be vegan.
Not everyone likes the gym.

We’re all different.
So stop worrying about what others will think and just find what works for you.
Not anyone else.
You. 💛

Transformation

I have to be honest…. I HATE sharing my before and after pictures.

I hate admitting that I completely lost myself this past year.

I look at the before picture and tear myself apart. 
True transparency, I will forever be a work in progress on this self love thing.

BUT that being said this program has COMPLETELY TRANSFORMED my life.

Over the past year and a half, I slowly lost myself.
I lost my passion for fitness.
I lost control of my nutrition.
I started to doubt if I would ever get it back.

And then the opportunity to test out this program came to me.

I went all in.
Committed.
Pushed myself.
Trusted the process, even when I was hungry, tired, and frustrated.

First my mindset shifted.
Then my body started to change.
Then my fitness shifted.

This program was an absolute game changer for me and exactly what I needed at the perfect time.

So I want to be the one to share it with you, at exactly the right time. And honestly, if I can inspire just one person to transform their life too because I shared these pictures that make me panic… I’m gonna suck it up and share…

Over and over again.

You ready to TRANSFORM your life too?!

CrossFit vs. At Home Workouts

“Did you give up crossfit in favor of a step?!”

Full disclaimer: When I was asked to be in the test group for our newest program the first question I asked was “can I still do crossfit too?”

We agreed that so long as the only thing I changed and added in to my routine was our newest 20 minute workout program and stuck to the nutrition plan, I could continue doing what I was all along fitness wise. 

Crossfit has forever been my therapy.
But over the past year, my fitness had slowly taken a nosedive.
I had lost my fight. I felt slower. I had gained weight. I wasn’t as strong.
I just didn’t love it quite as much.

Enter Transform :20.
20 Minute cardio workouts based around a step.
And yes I was skeptical.
I honestly had ZERO idea that it would affect my crossfit workouts in the slightest bit.
But I promised I would commit.
I never missed a day.
I stuck to the nutrition plan 110%.
What happened?

I got fitter. Faster. Felt a TRILLION times better.
Push ups are easier.
Running is less taxing.
My energy is through the roof.
Most importantly my MINDSET is completely transformed.

It really is amazing what happens when you learn to transform and control your mindset.
So nope I’m not giving up crossfit, BUT I’m certainly not missing a day of Transform :20 either.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about fitness it’s this: It’s DIFFERENT for everyone.

You have to figure out what will make you THRIVE. What you will ENJOY.

Whether it’s crossfit, at home workouts, zumba, yoga, or a little of both. Find what you LOVE. Stay consistent. And whatever you do be sure you TRANSFORM your mindset first.

Change starts from the inside out. 💛

What’s wrong with the before?!

What’s wrong with the before? It broke my heart last week when someone commented on my transformation that if that was my rock bottom picture, they were drowning.

Why? Because I’ve felt that way so many times too.

It’s so easy to look at a picture and physically compare your bodies to someone else. I spent YEARS of my life wishing my body were different, smaller, more of this and less of that.

But know what’s really difficult? Looking at a picture and determining someone’s mental state. The biggest part of my transformation over these past 7 weeks hasn’t been my body.

It’s been my mind.

I’ve gotten stronger.
Pushed past things that years ago would have destroyed me.
I’ve rebuilt my desire to fight.

There is quite a bit I will never share on my social media but amidst the stuff I hide is many of the triggers behind my downhill spiral.

Reality is I lost myself over the past year and the half and this program was the first thing to give me my life back.

What you can’t see in the first picture is the insecurities I felt. The sadness inside. The feelings of hatred for where I was in life.

That’s where the real transformation took place. No longer broken. No longer sad. Finally FREE. All because I made one choice to say YES.
And you have the power to make that same choice.
Because true transformation starts in your mindset.
Transform your mind. Transform your life.

Transform your LIFE

It is TERRIFYING to share these all over again.

Reality is earlier this year I hit rock BOTTOM.
I wasn’t working out.
I was more depressed than I had ever been. 
I couldn’t gain control over my nutrition.

I was a failed coach going through the motions, and when I was first asked to be in the test group for our newest program I ALMOST TURNED IT DOWN.

A common theme that has shown up in my life….
I didn’t feel WORTHY enough to do it.

I didn’t deserve to be chosen. I was the crossfitter who happens to be a beachbody coach. Who was I to get this incredible opportunity?

I decided I had two choices, I could turn it down, nominate someone else and let the opportunity pass me by OR I could do something I have the hardest time doing.

I could put myself first.
Show up confident and proud.
Give every piece of my heart and soul to this program.

Thank goodness I said YES. This is my 6 weeks progress and I’m still going.

Fitness has always been THERAPY for me. But this time it was more.

I committed to changing my mindset. To showing up on the days I didn’t want to. To see things through, not just for myself but for ALL of the people watching, who I would take with me on this journey in the future.

I fought anxiety.
Depression.
Negative voices.
Urges to cheat.
Obstacles along every step of the way.

But one thing I learned….
These at home workouts actually work 😉

That and I had everything already inside of me that I needed to transform my life… what I was missing was the motivation and words I needed to hear every step along the way. Shaun Blokker thank you for gifting that to me. 💛
