Why I Decided To Coach Others To Better Health

If you haven't noticed, there's a new workout that is pretty much the rage in fitness and social media - I'm sure you've heard of it.

I've worked out pretty much all my life especially more so three years ago when I got divorced - more on that later.  Working out is my medicine, my therapy.  During my divorce I started running more, I worked out almost every day and I could feel the stress, frustration, anger just melt away.  On the days I couldn't run I would close my eyes and run as fast as I could in my head.  Remember in Superman when Lois Lane died and Superman flew around the earth in reverse at super high speed to turn back time - well it was like that fricken fast except I didn't want to turn back time. Working out was is my drug, even if it was for a half hour doing whatever, it feels so good!

On Instagram I would follow many of the fitness pro's or pretty much anyone with a great workout page with videos I could do at home. Earlier this summer I joined my first online fitness program for the first time.  It was pretty cheap but I did it more for the guidance on what I needed to do and the meal plan.  I never knew what I was supposed to eat - low carb high carb, what the bloody hell was that shit! I work out at home because not all gyms have a kids area where I can drop off my 8 year old so I would work out at night or early before work. I have learned so much and have connected with some great people online.

I always have people reaching out to me on Instagram asking me if I wanted to join their tribe but I always had to decline. Finding time to work out isn't easy especially as a single mom.  It means I have to prioritize my expenses meaning it's a "nice to have but not a gotta have" and between last month and a few weeks ago I just dropped an unexpected $1k on my car and at the vets.  No es bueno my friends. Then I was talking to a new follower who had checked out my page and thought I was already working in fitness.  That planted a seed.  I researched the info and scheduled some time to chat with her.  I confessed my fears and skepticism but the benefits outweighed my fears.  I decided step outta my comfort zone and then I totally freaked the fuck out!! But I believe in the power of the Universe. I wanted some new opportunities and new adventures. During our call I connected with her in so many levels and I just knew this was a sign from the Universe, that this was meant to be.

For Christmas I got my first tattoo that says Faith Over Fear, you can check it out on my instagram. I have it on my forearm so that I can look at it every single day.  So I have to have Faith Over Fear that I can step out of my comfort zone and do this, I mean hell I already cheer people on when I scroll through Insta and motivate others so I know I've got this and you know what, it feels really good helping others when they are struggling, when they need a little extra push.  We all have tough days, no one wants to workout after working long hours or getting up at the crack of dawn to do it but when you have others doing it with you, makes things a heck of a lot easier.  I look at my beautiful daughter and my amazing dogs that are always there for me so Fuck Ya - I got this.  They are my why! I want to be there when my kids need me.

Today is a new day, make it your day.  If you're ready to make that change, you can leave a message below, hmu on Insta or Twitter.
