Sitting in my hotel room crying unable to stop is not how I expected to spend time before a cocktail party. So overwhelmed.
I’m tired. I miss my babies. And I’ve learned so much that made it clear the tweaks I need to make to have a bigger impact. And it all just hit me so hard that I couldn’t stop crying....
Sobbing for the girl...
For the girl who wanted to commit suicide.
For the girl who struggled with bingeing & gaining excessive weight rapidly.
For the girl who had no idea that all of these things were the VERY REASON she could help others & make an impact.
As I sat here bawling overwhelmed with emotion I realized that paying for a hotel room wasn’t something I could afford before. Taking back to back trips wasn’t my life even though I wanted those things & I sat here bawling for the girl who had the COURAGE to start, to change her life. To take control of her health & share that with others even when...
Slow progress is still progress.
Had lots of blood work done after that random virus that made me weak, unable to lift weights & unable to walk or do too much without dizzy spells. I’ve never experienced anything like it, and I have never been forced to take off as much time from workouts, EVER!
I poured in to my business from the couch, traveled to Hawaii & slept in & laid on the beach. Pretty much spent weeks laying around getting myself BETTER.
Soooo when the lab results came back I was so intrigued to see what they found:
All these other fancy levels came back textbook perfection. The naturopath said, "I’ve never seen labs this perfect." The only thing elevated were my liver enzymes which would have been an indication of inflammation from a virus.
I left with so much pep in my step. I didn’t get upset or frustrated when I couldn’t workout. I was so damn grateful for my health and hopeful it...
Today, I want to share something written by a truly beautiful human, Becky Scott. Becky, you are incredible and I am so honored to be on this health journey with you.
“Last night when I got on the plane to fly to Dallas I had a ton of emotions buckling the seatbelt. There once was a time that flying gave me extreme anxiety. Not because I was scared to fly but because I knew I’d have to ask for a seatbelt extender. I was so nervous that I would be told I was too big and needed to buy a second seat. I was sorry for the person next me that I was overhanging my seat too much. I would sit by the window if I could, and sit as close to the edge as possible. I would pray for a quick flight because it hurt so bad to sit like that. My legs would ache and swell from being overweight and flying. I hated to fly but wanted to travel. Now I still get anxious a little. It’s like muscle memory to be super nervous getting on a plane. Like the big girl in me...
It’s been about 3 weeks since an ambulance ride/ER trip left me with lots of unanswered questions. I’m still not close to where I was before, but I’m healthy, happy & have kept the breakdowns at a minimum. I still have weird episodes... like last week at brunch having to head home instead of hang out with family.
Thank goodness for our 20 minute bootcamp I’m seeing RESULTS working out way less than I’m used to or truthfully I might be going crazy.
When I was in my bike accident a week before my Ironman race I could focus on the fact that I’d injured my tailbone & couldn’t race, or I could use my mess as a message & propel myself forward. I chose the latter. I started lifting weights. I learned more about my body & my health. I went from 20 hours of cardio a week to 5. I got super fit & leaned into nutrition which I had never done before.
I went on to compete in 10+ bikini & figure competitions....
This makes my heart race posting this... but, after much thought I realized that when I was terrified to start coaching, I did it anyways. The chance I took on this business has completely changed my family's life and if I can help change another family's life, then its worth it.
When Beachbody found me, I was hesitant. Terrified even, but I knew there had to be more than my situation of feeling STUCK and waiting for the weekends. I wanted to...
I want more.
"The difference between greed and ambition is a greedy person desires things he isn't prepared to work for."
Love taking time for the incredible beauty. Hawaii (and Tahoe) are my most favorite places to travel I'm always stopping to take photos of palm trees & the sky or tall tree and the sky. The colors scream ME.
I’ve never thought I was greedy for wanting more money, more time, more freedom, more vacations. I’ve always been grateful for what I’ve been blessed with but also believe there is abundance in the world.
I believe that I can change more lives & do more good & have a bigger impact. That I can earn a great income doing all of these things. In the past couple weeks I’ve heard a lot of women feel guilty for wanting MORE... fear of judgement that others will think they are greedy.
Since hearing this, I’ve been doing more reading on the topic because I haven’t felt guilty for wanting more, but I wanted...
7X Elite Team, 7 years in a row.
There are only a handful of teams that have ever done this... putting us at the top .0000001% in the company. I never dreamt this big when I started.
My dream was for an extra $500 a month and to be able to FILL UP at the gas station instead of putting in $10 & driving as little as possible waiting for the next paycheck. But when you allow yourself to dream and grow in to the person that can make it happen, you learn how to DREAM again and it just keeps getting BIGGER.
Every quarter we have events around the world where we get together & celebrate advancements, share best practices & business strategy & cover new fitness programs & supplements.
The past couple years I’ve been honored (and scared) to speak on stage. I was asked to share today!! And I take so much time & care to bring my best TIPS, training & inspiration to help other coaches know they CAN ACCOMPLISH their dreams too!! OUR TEAM is living proof.
Are you tired of the 9-5? I was.
Look, if you’re not waking up every single day excited about life… then something is seriously wrong…
And it’s time for change.
So here’s how to profitably and safely quit your job:
Step 1: DON’T quit your job - YET. No matter how much you don’t like it you need to be patient. And in the meantime try to trick your brain into liking it and to excelling at it! Because that momentum will carry you forward.
Step 2: In your free time - whether you have 4 hours a day or 10 minutes - you need start a side business. I started my side business with a goal of leaving my full time job in a couple years. It took me less time than that because I treated my business with the same respect I treated my job. I showed up.
Step 3: As your side business starts to earn money DON’T spend it! Keep your lifestyle the exact same for the time being.
Step 4: As soon as the income from your side business becomes greater...
I woke up at 3am and couldn’t get back to sleep, so I spent time brain dumping all goals for 2019- fitness, business, relationships, travel, etc & reflecting on 2018. What a year of growth & blessings it’s been.
28 vs. 33
Cardio vs. Cardio + Weights + Nutrient Density. Weights don't make you bulky! What I love about muscle gain & fat loss- I can't BUY IT! It takes WORK!
Some days it just HITS me hard.
The girl who didn’t use social media has built a life she doesn’t need a vacation from with friends she LOVES & adores... on social media.
The introvert who wanted to please everyone so much that she was afraid to be herself for fear of judgement has learned to BE FREE.
I ask my team often what have you already overcome. It’s so cool to look back.
I’ve overcome fear of judgement. IM FREE TO BE ME & I truly don’t care what anyone else thinks.
What you see on social is what you see in person.
And through it all I’ve built deeper friendships & connections with people who like me WANT MORE for their life.
