Transformation

Left: 6 years ago
Right: Today

I didn’t know where to start.
I had no clue where I would end up. 
But I knew I needed to change.
It wasn’t easy. It was filled with failures. But it was so very much worth the fight.

Cheers to gaining strength, creating your own happiness, and learning that time can be a very beautiful thing. 🍾 💕

What’s your WHY?

What’s your WHY?! Did you know one of the things I hate the most is pictures and videos of myself. Yes, you got that right, I’ve made a living off of posting pictures and videos of myself to social media. Something I highly DISLIKE. 
.
So WHY?! On the days when I really don’t feel like taking another picture, making another post, coming up with the perfect thing to say, I remind myself why the heck I started this in the first place.
.
Sharing my story. 
Sharing my struggles.
Helping other women not feel ALONE.
Helping other women reach their true potential.

This is what I get to do on a daily basis.
.
To me there is nothing more REWARDING than helping another woman not feel the feelings I felt for so many years. And yes I have my days where I just don’t feel like it too, but then I remember WHY I started this whole thing in the first place. I realize all that I’ve accomplished. And I remember that I’m doing EXACTLY what I set out to do. 💕

A Perfect Start

When is the PERFECT time to start your health and fitness journey?

My REAL answer: Never. Danielle-Prestejohn-56 (1)

The season of New Year’s Resolutions and starting on Monday is upon us… but one of the most important things I’ve learned is there will never be a best time to start a health and fitness journey.

*Life is always going to be busy.

*There’s always going to be an upcoming event.

*You’re never going to have a surplus of money to afford it.

*You’re never going to feel READY

So what if instead of waiting for Monday, or January 1st, or until you feel ready you started right now?! Made one small (or BIG) change to take a step to a healthier life. It doesn’t have to be a drastic change. Small changes daily when life is chaotic will still add up over time. In fact, it will add up to WAY more than if you keep WAITING for that perfect starting point. Are you in?

Mindset…

Mindset
As someone who struggles with anxiety and depression I know all too well how my mood can affect how I feel about my body. .
These two pictures are exactly the same but what I see on a good day versus a bad day can be a world of difference. On a bad day, I’ll see all of my flaws, on a better day, it’s much easier to brush past them, or realize it is merely me being my own worst critic. 
.
Now while it may be impossible to completely CHANGE your thoughts and how you feel about your body, it is possible to work on reframing them. Another thing to work on… how you REACT to them. In the past a bad day would lead to either restricting my food, emotional eating, or hours of extra workouts. Not anymore. 
.
Trust that your mood is merely dictating how you are viewing yourself and it may not always be the most accurate picture. Bottom Line: Work on your inside and your mindset, and your outside will reflect it.
