Another Chapter…

#ThrowbackThursday #ThankfulThursday #anotherchapter
So here’s another piece to my story. Fitness and nutrition became a huge focus for myself about 10 years ago. Before that I “liked it…enjoyed it” but was never consistent with it. Around 2009 I was going to be getting married and made a choice –> to make lifestyle change–> a commitment to better eating and fitting fitness into my life routine. I started there with Shaun T’s insanity and going to the gym and I created my habit that I continue to hold strong. 

2011 I took a trip to Costa Rica for a week of Yoga & Fitness Classes and AWESOME all organic prepared meals. I decided making a change in my diet (NOT A diet but MY DIET) would make a huge change in my life and so I did! Now I say: Eat Simple. Eat Clean. Eat Whole. 80/20 rule! That’s what I did. I cut out ALOT of foods I used to eat and I ate mostly whole food -closest to its natural form. 

2012 I felt the best ever and was in best shape I could remember ever being in. Later in 2012 I found out I was pregnant and for first time pregnant Moms THAT was scary. I didn’t know what my body would be able to handle. I didn’t know WHAT was going to happen TOOOO my body!! #truthbomb I felt my best and looked my best and was worried where I was heading next. I continued to eat well and exercise throughout my pregnancy. I gained about 30lbs and the most amazing little Man came into my life in 2013. 

Time. Dedication. Refocus. Lots of energy and effort went into the time that passed after being blessed with my little man! I KNEW how I wanted to feel and with the extra push and that leap if faith I made Sept 2014, 1 year after my little man was born, I took my own challenge. I fell in love with coaching and the challengers! My lifestyle changed once again…I was back on track and with a HUGE family of challengers too!! Coaching has been amazing. The lives changed has been amazing. 

My point is the proof is in the mindset. The proof is in your effort. The proof is in that decision to take that leap of faith. Im thankful for every single step along the way and continue to look forward to what’s ahead!! 

Moms. I’ve been there. Friends. I’ve been there.

Now let’s take that leap of faith together!! Let’s commit to a healthy lifestyle and be fit for ourselves and our loved ones around us!!

I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
