I am almost 40, the mom of three amazing munchkins and the wife of one really awesome man! I have not always been fit or into nutrition.
‘I don’t have time for that.’ No. for real. “I DON’T HAVE TIME!”
If you would have talked to me a few years ago, at some point in our conversation, those words would have been spoken. Thankfully, I have developed some skills to solve that problem.
You see, I wasn’t always someone who exercised and ate well. I struggled with being SUPER picky and didn’t there there were actually veggies that I liked.
After my the birth of my third child, I really sunk into a bit of a tailspin. I was depressed, tired, overwhelmed and turned to food for comfort. I was also unknowingly struggling with a health condition that was undiagnosed for several years — making the struggle even more of a challenge. Going to a gym was not something that fit into my schedule. A friend from high school posted on Facebook that she was starting a health and fitness challenge group.
In January 2011, I decided it was TIME for a change. I invested in the 10 Minute Trainer program and in my 30 days I was down 8 pounds. I was so excited that I did it for another month. I then started drinking Shakeology and worked out to the P90X Program during the summer of 2011 and got stronger and tighter! I decided to fire up my metabolism with Turbo Fire and fell in LOVE with fitness. I lost 30 pounds with Turbo Fire and finally started to feel like myself again! I adopted clean eating and really started to play with my food! YES, experimentation with recipes. I love Pinterest for this!
Now, I wake up at 4:30 am, do my workout, eat 6 small meals a day and due to my Hashimotos Thyroid Disease, follow the Paleo Nutrition Plan and use Shakeology as one of my meals. I feel better at almost 40 than I did at 25. I have more energy and fit into clothing that I wore in my college years! It is a wonderful and empowering feeling to look in the mirror and FEEL GOOD in your own skin.
I decided to become a Beachbody Coach because I love the products and love helping people to find the SAME success that I have experienced. I teach group fitness classes and run online fitness and nutrition accountability programs. I’m a certified health coach, PiYo Live instructor, educator and author. My goal is to create an easy to follow roadmap for others to follow.
I also mentor individuals on time management and motivation! I have truly found my passion and love what I get to do. I love to exercise and eat healthy. I have learned a great deal over the last few years and love being able to share that and help so many.
