One Year Later...

A little over a year ago I began my journey with Beachbody.  I had no idea what to expect, I didn't know a whole lot about the business, I wasn't planning on growing a team.  I just wanted to try T25.  I wasn't in it for the money.  In fact my first paycheck was like $32.  That didn't even cover the cost of my Shakeology every month.  

Once I started T25 and shared my results people started getting interested too.  I got emails and comments daily about the program and how could they order it.  I was shocked!  I was making a difference!!  People were being inspired by me.  That gave me so much fuel to keep going.  To keep pushing.  To not give up, ever.  And then the same became true when I started {and fell in love with} PiYo.  

I knew as a coach people were relying on me. People were looking to me for results and I couldn't let them down.  I loved that because so many times I wanted to give up but I couldn't because I couldn't not have something to show for all the talk I'd talked.  

So I kept going.  

Along the way people caught wind of this amazing opportunity and wanted in on my team.  Each new coach I signed up was another person who was going to be changing lives.  I loved when I logged into my back office and saw "You have one new personally sponsored coach".  It was like, "YES!!!  Lives are changing!!  People are getting healthy!!!" 

Our team is so supportive and motivating.  It's a really cool thing to be a part of.  No one is looking out for numero uno, in fact the opposite is true.  We want each other to succeed.  We love seeing our fellow coaches grow and reach their own personal goals.  It's mind-blowing to see, it really is.  

I love it when people email me and say, "OMG I love this program!  I'm down ___lbs already and feeling even better!!"  It's the most rewarding part of this "job".  Watching other people succeed and do things they never thought they could is so emotional.  

Weight loss journeys are so personal.  Everyone has their own reason why they are overweight/out of shape and everyone has their own reason why they want to change.  Some are more emotional than others but when someone shares their story with me I feel privileged.  
I've made my own journey over the past year and I'm not finished yet. When I started I was almost 7 months post-partum.  I hadn't really done much to change my diet/exercise.  I was tracking calories here and there and doing the treadmill, mainly, for workouts.   Over the past year I've lost 30+lbs and gained so much more. I'm in the best shape of my adult life.  I am stronger, leaner, more comfortable in my own skin than I've ever been.  But I'm not done yet.  This journey is still not finished and in some ways I don't know that it ever will be. I feel as though I'm always a work in progress.  

All this to say, I'm so grateful for taking a leap of faith over a year ago.  I didn't know where this journey was going to take me and I was OK with that.  But over the past year I've made so many changes, physically and mentally, all while watching others do the same.  It's really, pretty damn cool.  

I love sharing this opportunity with others.  I love getting emails and comments from others who are inspired by my journey and want more information.  I love watching YOUR journey and I'm thankful when you let me be a part of it.  I love watching my team grow because it just means more and more people are changing their lives and helping others change theirs.  Coaches change lives, people.  

So thank you for following my journey this year.  Thank you for all your kind words when I post before/after pictures. Thank you for cheering ME on.  Thank you for letting me be a part of your journey.  Thank you for giving me the push when I need it and keeping me motivated.  

If you think this is something that might be a good fit for you, shoot me an email, I'd love to talk to you in more detail.  If you'd like to find a program to fit your fitness needs I'd love to help you find the perfect one!  Comment below or email me at
