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. 🍾 💕

I used to HIDE. And not just in sweatshirts, but I let how I felt about my body affect how I felt about myself as a person. 👗
One of the most rewarding things to see my clients gain is the confidence of feeling better in their skin. 🙌
Change doesn’t always happen on the scale.
It doesn’t have to be reflected in a different clothing size.
Change isn’t always seen on the exterior.
But I do know this… Change happens when you decide you deserve it. 💕
For me, my transformation has always been more about mindset and health than outward appearance, but pictures like this make me realize how much changing my mindset and my life has changed my body.

The girl on the left would try to stretch out her clothes as much as possible.

2017: Same shirt & a new mindset. 💕
My current online boot camp is full of love and support if you are someone who needs that mindset change. We always have spots open for ladies ready to make a change 💌
The old me was tired of wearing baggy sweatshirts and gym clothes all the time.
I knew I wanted change but wasn’t sure how to make it happen, and it was so much easier to hide.
Then, I started in my team’s online fitness community. And through sharing my own journey, I became stronger than ever imaginable.
I declared “enough is enough!” and set forth on the journey of a lifetime. A journey to greater health, self love, and happiness. I surrounded myself with positive people on similar paths.
Taking it one day at a time.
One meal at a time.
One step at a time
There are so many meanings of the word “discipline”…years ago, discipline became a very bad thing for me.
Discipline meant eating too little, skipping parties, nights out, and weekends at college. Discipline meant weighing myself daily, killing myself with cardio, and cutting out entire food groups that were “bad” for me.
Now I view discipline as something entirely different. For me discipline means eating enough to FUEL my workouts. Choosing healthy foods that make me feel my best, run my fastest, and lift my strongest.
Discipline means taking a rest day when my body needs it and not “pushing through” the pain. Discipline means not stepping on the scale, even when it tempts me the most.
I have learned to embrace a healthy dose of discipline and now get to teach other people to do the same on a daily basis. I feel so lucky that I am disciplined enough to do what I love. 💛
