Not really a physical transformation here, but more of a happiness transformation.
Ya see, 5 years ago I was teaching 15+ fitness classes a week. I was BURNT OUT. I lived for Sundays because that was my ONE day off. I thought, "this IS FUN, I get to do what I love, so it's fine!!" Even though I was sore ALL THE TIME and slept terribly and ate horribly I decided to keep up the grind because that's just life, right!?!?🤷🏽♀️
Guys, I was NOT happy. I thought if I did MORE I would BECOME happier. So I worked HARDER and year after year I became less and less fulfilled and I had a paycheck to match that less fulfillment. When you put in HOURS of work for one class and you are paid less than $6 for that class you start to resent what it is you do.
But the good news is when you REACH that burn out you FINALLY realize your worth and you decide that you have had enough!!! That's when Coaching entered my life. I was DONE trying to do this on my own. I became a beginner again and decided if I wanted something different I had to DO something different. Don’t get me wrong, It's also been hard work but the MOST Fulfilling work I've ever done (with a FULFILLING paycheck to match🙏)
I've learned to embrace fear and struggle and NOT run from it anymore. It's the ONLY way to overcome our challenges. I learned that YES, I don't have to do this on my own ANYMORE. And I also learned that there are TOO MANY OTHERS out there that relate to my story.
I see YOU, dreamer and do-er. Don't give up on YOUR dreams. Learn something new and reach out if you need any help getting there. Life is meant to be lived surrounded by people who also support you and your dreams and there IS ENOUGH Success for EVERYONE in this world. Living a life of abundance is a mindset and it takes time to realize and believe it. Don't doubt your abilities babe. YOU ARE WORTHY OF A GREAT LIFE!!!!! #dontgiveup#weareworthit #fitinfluencer #onlinecoach #zinlife#poundpro #fitnessenthusiast #livingthedream
Not really a physical transformation here, but more of a happiness transformation.
Never compare your chapter one to someone else's chapter 300. We are all on a journey, and when we compare to others it leads to jealousy, envy and event hate.
I know this because that inner mean girl clouded my judgment MANY A TIME. 🙈😭🙈 ....until I realized I CAN silence her and I CAN uplift myself and others rather than tear down and judge.
We don't have to judge ourselves, so the next time you hear that mean inner bully tear you or others down take PHYSICAL action by loving and complimenting someone and also post a selfie saying one thing you are gonna love about yourself today. Its NOT conceited or vain its self love at it's best.
Your actions CAN overpower those negative thoughts. Tag me too if ya do post a #selfiesforselflove because I'm gonna be right there uplifting you too babe. 💕😍💕😘
Yep, I said poop. 🤣 But seriously, how many of us are leading by example!?!!? It wasn't until I became a Coach where I realized I was an emotional/binge eater and KNEW I had this secret I felt ashamed of.😭😭😭
I would starve for a few days if my scale went up, then I binge eat when I reached my goal. Yea, that was me, while I was a personal trainer and fitness instructor. So....HOW did I FINALLY overcome this!?!? I educated myself and followed my meal plan and checked in daily with my Virtual Fit Club. I started to see the emotional triggers for what they were. I no longer turn to food as reward or punishment. It's used as FUEL. And I eat clean 80-90% of the time now. And YES, I'm still gonna eat my bagel everyday because I want to and I can. Because it's part of my 10- 20%. Health isn't about perfection. Its about treating your body right. FINALLY.
Btw, if ya need help with consistency I'm doing a "I BET ON MYSELF CHALLENGE" where we bet $10 on ourselves to check in at least 18x over the course of 21 days. When you hit that goal you get $10 back PLUS any leftover money from the pot. I'm your F R E E Coach, I just get you the same program I'm following. Want info?

Overcoming food struggles is something You CAN do. I'm here to help 💕💕💕
After a "big" decision is made in your life you are excited. No dip right!? 🤷🏽♀️ You are engaged in the "newness" and feelings of hope and adventure. Until you aren't. And that's what I want to talk about today.
Every day I see couples fall out of love.
Every day I see people starting a new business, but then they quit..over and over and over again.
Every day I see peoples health failing after given all the tools to be successful.
And I know we ALL SEE THIS.
I'd like to address the reason we aren't seeing MORE SUCCESS in these areas. Because yes, there IS HOPE.
We aren't associating happiness and fulfillment with the LITTLE DAILY BEHAVIORS that will BRING us happiness and fulfillment.
Think about it. Do you remember that excitement when you first BEGAN? Before resentment or boredom set in? You CAN bring those feelings back by being PRESENT and GRATEFUL for what you ALREADY have.
#1 Make a grateful list in each area. Don't compare to yesterday. Take a "DAY ONE" mentality.
#2 And show this gratitude by taking action on it.
If you want your relationship, business or health to be stronger then take action TODAY with ONE LITTLE BEHAVIOR.
For a Stronger relationship....Every morning, say I love you and hug your loved one for at least 30 seconds and imagine your life 5 years from now.
For a Stronger business....every morning, do the ONE THING you know you need to do and imagine your life 5 years from now.
For a Stronger Healthy lifestyle...every morning, do the THING. Whether it's meal prep for the day, or get your workout in ASAP.
Doing these things EVERY DAY & EVERY MORNING will reignite your excitement and hope for a better future. It's a choice to live a purpose driven life. So choose to find joy in the little things because those little things do add up. 💕
Your life gets better the moment you decide it matters.
You matter, so take the opportunity to grow.
Step outside your comfort zone.
Be kind to the girl in the mirror.
Tell her she's brave enough to take the next step.
Tell her she's worth the work it takes to get there.
It's NOT too late.
Right NOW you can do something about it.
So do something about it.
Because YOU matter.
Should health start in the home!?!?! 💁🏽♀️💁🏽♀️💁🏽♀️
In my experience, YES. As a kid my mom had vhs tapes of workouts and it was TAE BO that sparked my interest for sweating it out, feeling stronger and having fun while getting healthier. If I wouldn't have started enjoying workouts at an early age I feel like my life would be completely different. So YES I strongly feel that long term health SHOULD start in the home. It can help families become healthier together. But one thing is key here...workouts available anywhere and anytime is AWESOME, but if your nutrition is not right, then you might end up stuck like I was a few years ago...........
After I got married I started teaching (15+) fitness classes a week and because I was over-training so much, my body was craving food ALL.THE.TIME... but I did NOT take my nutrition seriously. I reached for quick fixes and thought, "I workout enough!"🤷🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️. I was eating out 5x a week. Diet coke was a daily thing. And fruit loops!?!? Yep, almost every night! It was my midnight snack. And we ate out at least 5x a week!!!! The other meals were Costco dinners full of fat and carbs and very little nutrient dense foods!!! No wonder I felt AWFUL!!!!!
All that changed 5 years ago when I joined a Virtual Fit Club and learned about macronutrients, superfoods nutrition, portion control and meal prepping. I learned so much and I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER. I still have about 2 "treat meals" a week but I'm back in control of my health.🙌
And guys, I want YOU to feel this good also. So how bout it!? 💁🏽♀️💁🏽♀️💁🏽♀️ Fill out my Virtual Fit Club Application to chat to see if this program could help you too! (Link in bio). It's not a contract.....just a conversation. So let's chat if you are ready heal your body from the inside out 💕💕💕 Next Virtual Fit Club starts in JUNE!!!!!!#virtualfitclub #virtualbootcamp#mindandbodymakeover #transform2k19#mindsetreset #letsgethealthy #likenow
Do you know where you will be 5 years from now?
Do you know where you WANT to be?
Do you know HOW you will get to where you want to go?
And lastly, do you think it's selfish to want a better future and provide more for you and your family?
I asked myself this 5 years ago....
I was 30 years old & was was teaching over 15 fitness classes a week, and spending another 10 -15 hours a week learning choreography....so yea, you could say I was exhausted and worried that my fitness career would not last long at this pace. Then I twisted my ankle and couldn't teach for 6 weeks. Well that SUCKS when you are involved in fitness because you don't get paid if you can't teach!!!!
Yes, I loved helping people but decided that I CANNOT KEEP THIS UP!!! I decided to talk to my friend who told me about helping people online. I had dismissed the idea when she first asked me about it because I was VERY skeptical. I thought all "Online jobs" meant Pyramid schemes, spamming everyone I know and learning.(which Y'all know I quit college, right?!? #badatlearning) So yea, not for me. But I was SOOO desperate so I decided to get out of my own way, and learn something new.
I think you know the rest of the story, because YES, I took the leap. You have been on this journey with me and I can honestly tell you that in 5 years I've made the best decision of my fitness career.
I became an Online Coach/Fit -Influencer and I'm able to provide meal plans, supplements, workouts, fitness gear, fitness clothing and I mentor others to become their own bosses also. Being able to show up online, provide value, build REAL relationships and have this type of support was EXACTLY what I was looking for! 🙏😭 I partnered with a company that provides ALL that(work smarter, not harder). I wanted this FREEDOM all my life and I found it through this!!!!
If you are at all interested in changing your next 5 years then let's chat. No certs required, I show you EVERYTHING. You never know where 5 years can take you. Fill out this link about BECOMING A FIT INFLUENCER. I can help, let's do this TOGETHER. ✌😚
PS...DOING A SNEAK PEEK INTO THE FIT/INFLUENCER LIFE THIS WEEKEND!!! CURIOUS???? CHECK OUT THIS GROUP!!!!
Actions speak louder than words. ALWAYS.
We either let life happen, or we decide to take action towards the life we want. We either choose to be a victim or an overcomer. We either treat our life as a gift we appreciate or we don't.
Take action, friends. Get out of your own way and fight the fears we have made excuses for. If not now, WHEN? If not now, WHY NOT? The only failure in life is NOT trying.
It won't be perfect but you become better every day you decide you are worth a better life. I believe in you. Make today your best, because you never know when it could be your last. 💕
Rainy and cold!? Perfect day for staying home and getting my yoga on🙏 Where my fellow homebodies!?!!?🙋🏽♀️🙋🏽♀️🙋🏽♂️🙋🏽♀️🙋🏽♂️🙋🏽♀️
Just curious, do you prefer the AT WORK job.... Or the AT HOME work job????? One of my friends asked me if I got cabin fever from NOT leaving the house. Lol. I'm like ...NO. WAY.
I used to teach 6am morning classes, personal train during the day and try to fit in this online biz and then teach AGAIN at night. I was ALWAYS go go go. Food was fast food, and I lived for the weekend, and didn'tp see Eddie enough. 😭
BUT, when you decide you have had enough you are willing to learn HOW to have a better life. And When you are your own (online) boss you have the opportunity to do MORE of what you love...
And sleeping in and staying home WITH Eddie is EXACTLY WHY I'm doing what I'm doing!!!!! 🙌🙌plus it freaking rocks to help people become healthier, happier and more FREE!!!!! 💕
