My anti-depressant…

Leave a comment

The times that I feel my best are the time that I just finish working out. {Especially when you rocked out so much your hair falls out of its braid πŸ‘πŸ»…see πŸ‘€πŸ‘‡πŸ»}.

 Did you know that when you work out you release chemicals in your body that our “feel good” chemicals? It’s the same chemicals that our body gets when taking anti-depressants. 

It’s like self-medicating yourself. 


I know what it feels like to use anti-depressants. Years ago I suffered from PMDD (huh…what’s that? google it). Anyone who suffers from some form of depression suffers differently but for me (WOW I’ve become an open book lately) exercise, once again to the rescue, became my fix. With eating healthy, living a healthier life, and working out in some way, shape, form…I wasn’t on those pills very long. 


I’ve had those feelings of emptiness creep back into my life with my loss. You WANT to be happy but there’s such an imbalance from your body/mind/life experience. Some people will get what I’m saying. 

From my experience and what I KNOW works for me. EXERCISE is my anti-depressant. I just finished a class on campus. We ROCKED OUT with Pound and I’m feeling once again that feeling of ‘Everything is OK”. There will be ups and downs BUT I’ll feel me 100% again in time…just gotta keep being me and doing what I love!! #fitness #coaching

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!
