I wasn’t planning my meals, I wasn’t doing my workout first thing in the morning and before I knew it I was eating over processed junk and NOT doing my workouts because I had no energy for them. (*gasp….I know….bad coach!)
I knew I needed to get myself back on track and fast, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. Then I remembered my before photo and pulled it up on my laptop. I stared at the photo in disgust and knew if I didn’t get my act together I could easily slip back to THAT. I then pulled up a current photo of myself and put it next the before and man did something just click in my brain.
It was a click I had felt before….it was the click that propelled me onto this fitness journey a year ago.
While sitting there looking at the two photos I finally realized how far I’ve come. How much I have grown as a person. How much I have learned and how badly I want to help others reach their fitness goals.
I realized how I could NEVER go back to being that person again….I REFUSE to let that happen. (Those of you who know me know just how thickheaded I can be.)
So I pulled up a Word document and started typing out my goals. I made a list of things I want to achieve and I felt a new purpose wash over me as I did this.
I also shared my before and after with everyone I know on Facebook and Twitter. The messages and feedback I received were the motivation I needed. I was even retweeted by Beachbody on Twitter and that allowed me to connect with people I never spoke with before and answer their questions.
Knowing that I can help someone who wants to start their goal to a better life is one of the greatest things to me. I want nothing more than to see everyone succeed at this. To reach their goals. To find motivation. To find happiness and most of all health.
If you are someone who has been thinking about taking that first step to a new you please feel free to contact me. I would be more than happy to help you figure out what your first steps should be and to help you along the way.
