I woke up this morning to a Facebook memory.
Two years ago today I received my first BeachBody commission check. Its was for 190.00. :-) Two years ago I was a newbie at this and everyday was a mix of anticipation, hope, and a little nervousness. But more than anything, I was extremely grateful because it was a tangible representation of my hard work. I had decided to go all in with Beachbody. Not just in my health, but as a job.
And two years later I am still going strong. There have been ups and downs along the way and just like every business, sometimes things are unpredictable. It's taken time and effort and countless hours of learning how to cultivate relationships and mentor people who, like me, are passionate about change in their lives. I look back over the last 24 months and am so proud of all i have done. I have set goals and even though i haven't hit all of them...i have hit ALOT of them. I have worked for everything i have done and that to know I did that...its pretty awesome. I can't wait to see what the next two years hold. I have so much more that I want to accomplish and all that I've learned plays such a crucial part of these goals.
I want to continue helping people. There is nothing like receiving the messages from people that were hating where there life was, tired of being on the back-burner, not knowing how to even start taking care of themselves and now they have hope. They feel like a new person. They are loving themselves. I was that person, so i know that feeling. This is a huge thing for me.
I want to keep hitting my monthly goals for my business. I am 25 months in and I am not stopping. Everytime i hit one of these goals means another person is taking charge of THEIR life and are starting this new journey.
I want to continue to help provide for my family. When i started, we were in ALOT of debt. We lived off our credit cards. We never had cash on hand. Now, i am bringing in more than I did with my full time job. I get to work from home, not miss my kids activities, be present, work on my self..help others. I have been able to help our family out so much. Soon..i will make a post to share some of the amazing things i have been able to do...but, that is another post for another time... 😉
For those of you who have been partnering with me, it's been an honor working with you, walking along side you. I can't wait to help you reach your own goals. Let's plan to work even harder and succeed in areas that have been holding you back. And for anyone who is maybe on the fence about BeachBody, please drop me a line because I would love to talk to you about someone that means so much to me still...
Two years later.

I know that I talk a lot about the weight I have lost with beachbody. We all hear and see ALOT of focus on people's physical transformation and I just wanted to remind you today that its also about how we feel.
I went to my first conference last year with beachbody and I remember feeling so nervous about being surrounded by all those "fitness freaks" and "beach bodies". I honestly almost didn't go because i was not feeling like i belonged there. I wasn't to my goal. I hadn't reached my "ideal" weight. I still was on my journey and i felt embarrased Well, I can tell you my experience... I was surrounded by people of all shapes and sizes with huge hearts ❤ and a drive and passion to help others. It was so incredible to be surrounded by people that were just proud of their journey and happy to be there. There was no "ideal" person. The one thing we all had in common is we made it our job to help others live healthy lives!
I remember crying at one point because fear had almost got me to quit. To give up. And to be honest, i probably would have if I hadn't been working on my inside transformation this whole time. This company has taught me to be a strong confident person. I love this company and what they stand for - people, health, the inner journey....
As i am getting ready to go to Punta Cana in less than a month, I am not fighting those same fears and feelings anymore. Which is huge. Im not gonna lie, I am still working on becoming my best self...but not for comparing or anything like that. I just want to feel my best. <3 And that isn't a size or weight or anything. Its just me, rocking my swimsuit and enjoying the beach with my friends. It shows me how much I have grown over this last year. I have no desire to try and create some rockhard body because I'm going to a resort with all these amazing coaches.
What I want is to be my most confident self and keep the focus on being soooo grateful for this trip I've been given and that i get to enjoy it with some of my closest friends.
So, on that note, I am off to find the perfect suit....and Im not even dreading it!
