A Shift.

The difference in these photos isn’t just
weight. It is discipline, community, accountability, nutrition, and mental health.

It’s realizing that making time to make my health a priority, doesn’t just help me, it helps others. 

I spend more time laughing and finding joy, than being tired, annoyed, and resentful because I did everything for everyone else, and nothing for myself.

The number on the scale doesn’t matter to me. It is the Non Scale Victories that bring me joy.

Here’s what matters to me:
– More energy to play with my two boys.
– Being an example.
– Being comfortable in my own skin.
– Being proud of my physical and (even more challenging) mental accomplishments.
– Filling my cup so that I can help fill others cups.

It didn’t happen overnight. It wasn’t, (and still isn’t) easy. I choose to show up, everyday, and do my best. If I fall flat, I try harder the next day. It is progress not perfection.

I became the person on the right when I reached out and asked for help. I was given a community of support, a coach that checked on me, and a wealth of resources that I could utilize on my time, in my home.

I didn’t get to the person on the right by going it alone….

I’m a coach now, and I want to help others see their potential when they stop doubting, and start believing (just as someone did for me 9 months ago).

If you’re curious, you’re struggling, or you want to know more, let me know. I want to help.
