10 Years of Change

2010 was a tough year for me. ⁣
I had just graduated college with a degree in dance and zero idea of what I wanted to do with my life. ⁣
I was in the process of recovering from an eating disorder, and weighed about 40lbs more than I had been just a few years before. ⁣

I had accepted the fact that if I wanted to thrive and live a healthy life, I needed to eat food, so I did. ⁣
I was in a period of healing. ⁣
of growing. ⁣
But I also felt so stuck. ⁣

I hated my body and thought it would never change. ⁣
I believed I would forever be unhappy in my skin. ⁣
I had zero idea of what life had in store for me or what direction I would go in. ⁣

The perfect reminder that everything is temporary. ⁣

For me this was a low. ⁣
But it was also the springboard for the rest of my life. ⁣

I grew → then shrunk a bit ⁣
Built strength → then shared it ⁣
Found fitness → realized my passion ⁣
Hit bottom → learned to fight ⁣

Forever going through seasons and periods of growth. ⁣

If you’re in a tough spot remember it could be your greatest opportunity for change. ⁣
Embrace it. 💛

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. 💛

P.S. Link to our prep group is in the comments! Hop in if you’d like to check it out. Please only those not working with a coach 🙂
