Stop Looking BACK

Stop looking back… you’re not going that way

I used to be the queen of limiting myself. I would write myself off for all the things I had been in the past.

“Too quiet” 
“Not successful”
“Too fluffy”
“Not fit enough”

I would limit what I chose to do based on all the times I had failed in the past. Not surprisingly, by doing this I continued to prove them all right. One of the biggest things I learned from starting my own business, was if I was ever going to be successful, I needed to switch my thinking.

I realized these limiting beliefs were only doing one thing – keeping me stuck exactly where I was. So instead of limiting myself based on my past, I started asking “why not me?”

That shift alone has allowed me to help so many other ladies on their fitness journeys and starting their own online fitness businesses. Imagine if I continued listening to those beliefs and playing it small.

Why not you too?!

Tribe

“Today is rest day but, I was thinking about going to the gym! Is that bad?”

When that message popped in my inbox from one of our newest coaches I had to smile. If there’s one thing I always craved it was other people who just got me.

Fitness junkies, introverts, ladies who had a passion for helping other people. 

That little message was a reminder that I’ve done exactly what I’ve set out to do. I’ll be over here building my tribe 😉

The Truth about HEALTH

I hate to break it to you sister – but living an active and healthy lifestyle doesn’t always equate to looking like a model. 

Every body is so different, and health really does look different on everyone.

At my tiniest I was dealing with constant fatigue, low blood pressure, and panic attacks. 
At my heaviest I was neglecting my health and fitness in favor of “body positivity”, I was sluggish, and even more insecure in my skin than ever before.
Then I found balance.

I workout 5 days a week, eat healthy 80 percent of the time and most certainly do not look like a model.
But I’m happy, I’m healthy and most importantly my MINDSET is in such a better place.

Workout to energize your body.
Eat well to nourish your body and thrive.
Find balance and stop comparing. Take care of you on the inside and I PROMISE you’ll glow on the outside – size two or not 😘

Transformation!!!

Some of the best transformations… don’t happen on the outside 

insecure → confident
unhealthy → thriving
settling → massive goals
lonely → community
hiding → sharing
follower → leader
stressed out and anxious → a little less anxious 😉

Thank goodness I said yes to my coaching journey. Amazing how one scary decision has the potential to change your entire life. Do the things that scare you. There is a reason they do. 💛

Embrace the Journey

I used to spend hours on the elliptical and not lose a pound.
I used to eat the “perfect diet” and always fall off track.
.
I had this great vision for where I wanted to be, and knew exactly what I needed to do… I could just never seem to get there.🤔
.
What was I missing?!
.
I hated the JOURNEY. I had the HUGE end goal in mind and just wanted to hurry up and get there, so I followed the drastic steps that I hated in hopes of getting there.
.
That right there.
.
That was the problem. If you don’t enjoy the journey… the in-between… the steps you take to get there. You will NEVER see it through.
.
The scale would go up. I’d get frustrated. I’d give up.
I’d eat a cookie. I was a horrible person. I’d eat ten more. 🍪
.
Then I learned the power of making the journey fun. I figured out which workouts I enjoyed the most. Which styles of eating would keep me full and happy. 🍓
.
It wasn’t as fast. It wasn’t as drastic. It wasn’t perfect.
.
But it was long term. It was sustainable. I actually saw RESULTS. So I kept going. Because guess what, that “PERFECT plan” for you is the one that you’ll actually follow. It’s not about perfect. It’s about consistency. And enjoying the way there.
.
And quite honestly if you don’t LOVE the journey – you’ll never maintain the results. 👊
