Can. Or Can’t. You’re right!

Whether you think you CAN or you CAN’T — you’re right!


So last night I went for a quick run after teaching my two yoga sessions…it was me against the daylight so I only got in about 1&1/4 maybe 1&1/2 mile under my feet. That was completely OK with me the fresh air felt amazing.


As I was running my mind wondered to the thoughts of “wow I can’t believe I actually used to run upward of 13miles at a time….all the way to 18’s, 20+’s and that one time I ran 24miles and that one time 26+ in a single run.


Something Im SUPER proud of myself for doing BUT GUESS where I started…I started with the initial thought of “I wonder if I can condition myself to run a 5k again”. It had been probably 10 years since I ran a steady 3miles AND I was 1 year postpartum at that time too sooo I really wasn’t sure. But I started something. I did a 5k plan and I did it. So after accomplishing that and went for a 10k. After that I thought MAYBE I could do a 1/2 marathon. Then I said to myself THERE IS NO WAY I could run a marathon. Well. I was right. If I kept that mindset.


I was in control. Whether I said I COULD do it. Or COULDN’T do it. I was right. Here’s the thing though. I believed I could. I just had to make that happen. Happen through consistency. Through commitment. Through dedication. It doesn’t happen overnight AND THAT is the problem MANY people have!


If it doesn’t happen fast enough — we say “I can’t do it” and toss in the towel. BUT I believe you CAN! We need to get out of our heads with this need for INSTANT attainment! It took me A LONG TIME to condition my body to run a marathon. No one said start today. Run a marathon tomorrow. *I say* Start SOMETHING today and keep at it. Build up to bigger challenges and goals! YOU CAN do it. You just have to:



2. Stay committed!

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!
