#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!!
