A year ago, I was struggling…like not just the day to day struggle, but REALLY STRUGGLING. I had completely lost my identity in this transition into mommyhood. I was anxious, overwhelmed and honestly, I felt like a shell of myself. I didn’t want to go back to work and be away from my kids, but I also needed SOMETHING ELSE! I watched a distant acquaintance help people change their lives through health, fitness and self care and still get to be home with her kids. It seemed like she had it all, everything I was looking for…a sense of purpose, a tribe of amazing women, the ability to connect and help women around the country, she was in amazing shape, seemed so happy and she was somehow making more money than I knew was possible.
So, I jealously watched her on social media for 6 months, and then I finally decided that I owed it to myself and my family to give this a chance. I did the program for myself and fell in love. I lost 20 pounds and got back to my pre-baby weight. But I really fell in love with it because it is so much smarter and more balanced than what I was doing with clients at the gym and teaching classes. I fell in love with the process and started coaching.
Nothing makes me happier than helping women through the journey that I face/faced. One year later, my life has been changed in every way. I found my identity again after postpartum anxiety, I’m a better wife, mom, friend…all of it. I’m creating a new financial landscape for my family and I truly believe that I’m making a difference in people’s lives. Beyond that, the women in this picture and on this team have become my best friends and my family.
I heard a challenger say it best, “I found something that has nothing to do with my kids, but everything to do with them at the same time”. They are getting a much better version of their mama because I’m back to helping people, leading from the front and taking care of myself so I can take care of everyone else.
All this to say, that if you’ve ever been curious about learning more about exactly what it is I do as a health and fitness coach, I’m hosting a Sneak Peek Into Coaching with a few of the badasses on my team this week. Maybe this can save you the way that it has saved me. You don’t have to be a trainer or have a fitness background, you just have to have a passion for helping people live their best lives. I’ve created a full time income working part time job from home, and the biggest part of my job is to take care of myself…it honestly seems too good to be true.
