Sometimes its important to dig deep and reacquainted with your WHY… Especially after 5 years as a Coach with so many changes.
My WHY :
First and foremost, it starts with me.. For me to be the BEST Wife, Mama, Sister, Daughter LEADER, Friend etc.. I need to be taking care of me. So I want to LIVE HEALTHY and FEEL MY BEST in this one and only body God gave me.
I know full well what it means to put others first and leave the scraps for yourself. That is the way I lived for YEARS.
When I found Beachbody 5 years ago, I was BUSY. I was homeschooling during the day, going to nursing school at night, studying ALL THE TIME, trying to have a life outside of all of that but it wasn't happening and I was lonely, exhausted, not feeling comfortable in my own skin and living my life as a spectator!
I would read blogs of women I enjoyed to see what they were doing and live vicariously through them. I dreamed of being able to travel or vacation more than a free weekend at the beach at our friends condo.
I had NO IDEA what I was signing up for when I joined that first fitness group!
I simply wanted to lose 10 lbs and that was really about it. I gave every excuse in the book why I couldn't in the beginning, but after a few weeks of thinking it over I decided to commit for just 30 days! I already owned P90X because my hubby had bought it off the infomercial a few years prior. So I just bought one bag of Shakeology (NOT on Home Direct and I made sure of that! haha! Im such a skeptic!!) And I told Jared that i'd give that 30 days MY ALL since I was taking that money for Shakeology from our already tight budget. We were a one income family with a brand new business and paying for me to go to school at the time so the budget was super tight.
So thats EXACTLY what I did.. I gave it my ALL.
I was the best challenger in that group. I showed up every day despite how BUSY I was with everything else. I prepped my foods like they told me too, I worked out 6 days a week at 5am because that was the only time of the day I could get it done, I drank Shakeology every single day, I followed the meal plan to a TEE and had ONE treat meal a week and GUESS WHAT?!!?
I LOST that 10 lbs I wanted to lose and FOUND so much more!! And, it set my HEART ON FIRE!!!
I felt like the woman I knew I was deep inside again.. I felt the weight of insecurity fall away, the fears that I had been holding onto and negative mindset that was holding me back were GONE and I felt FREE!! It was then that I KNEW in my heart that I HAD to be a COACH!!! It was without a shadow of a doubt what I was MEANT to be! So I finished that school semester and then left school and went ALL IN as a Coach!!
My ONLY goals were to help women feel the way I felt!! I told anyone and everyone along the way and built a beautiful team in the process!!!
As time went on my goals never changed, just GREW!! I wasn't much of a dreamer before but since signing up as a Coach I realized the incredible potential I had with it and started to visualize / dream / set goals for myself, my family and my team!
My WHY became BIGGER!!
I wanted to be able to TRAVEL and SEE THE WORLD and with BB I've been able to do that!! I wanted to PAY OFF ALL OF OUR DEBT and with BB we did that!! I wanted to be surrounded by AMAZING WOMEN who lift each other up and have lifelong friendships and with BB that has happened!!
I want to leave a LEGACY behind for my children and their children and THAT is where I've come to now.
From this point forward.. I want to continue to GROW and experience in all of the above ways! And I want to LEAVE A LEGACY for my FAMILY. <3
> Live HEALTHY & FREE
> Have an amazing COMMUNITY/SISTERHOOD
> Be DEBT FREE
> TRAVEL the world
> Build our DREAM HOME (who knows WHERE because we sure don't! Been waiting on God for this one FO SHO!! haha)
> PAY IT ALL FORWARD in every way.
That is my WHY.
