First off, thank you so much for taking the time to read my story and getting to know a little more about me. I am a wife to my amazing husband, a stay at home mom of 2 beautiful kids, and a self-proclaimed fitness junkie and nutrition nut. I love ice cream and always will…but who doesn’t, right? Before I had kids, I worked full time as a high school teacher and coach, teaching Health to 15 year olds and coaching Track and Field. I loved my job and had a passion for what I did. Nutrition was one of my favorite subject to teach-go figure :} It was a daily challenge to get 15 year olds to learn the importance that their choices “now” will affect them “later.” Fast forward 4 years; a life with 2 beautiful kids and a busy schedule, I still have a huge passion for helping others in the area of fitness and nutrition. And the funny thing is? It STILL is a daily challenge to get ADULTS to learn the importance that their choices “now” will affect them “later!” Little did I know that teaching 15 year olds would be helpful in sharing information with adults :}
After the birth of my two kids, I gained almost 50 lbs with each one, weighing in at almost 200 lbs. I was miserable with how I looked, and I didn’t feel good and wanted to get back into shape quickly after birth. I joined a local Stroller Strides class and lost a lot of my weight from doing so. However, after doing this for a year, I was ready for a change and ready to get the last 15 pounds off of me. I had loose skin and a cellulite, and didn’t know what to do next. Late one night, I was watching an infommerical and saw Insanity. There was no question. I was ready to DECIDE, COMMIT, and SUCCEED to this program.
In October of 2011, Insanity arrived at my door, and I was introduced to beachbody products. I finished my first round of Insanity around Christmas time. After my 1st round, I felt better than I had ever before. My body was never the same after having kids, and that was okay. What I wanted to do was find my NEW BEST BODY. I also always wanted to have strong and sexy arms, a rocking body, and have legs that could rock some shorts! :} At the end of my first round I had lost 10 lbs and 10 inches on my 5’7 frame. I went from 143 to 133, from a size 8 to a size 4, and was absolutely loving my results.
So I decided to COMMIT to another round of Insanity and finished my 120 days with losing another 3 lbs and 4 inches, and felt stronger than ever. After Insanity I did Asylum, and lost yet another 5 lbs and 3 inches. In 5 months I ended up losing, almost 18 lbs and 17 inches, went from a size 8 to a size 2, and became a believer in beachbody products.
That 90 days changed my life forever. I am a better mom, wife, and friend because of doing this. I got inspired to pay it forward. I knew that other mom’s and other people who committed to doing this program ACTUALLY do this program, and they could get into the best shape of their life doing so in the comfort of their own home. I could not ask for a more rewarding experience. This has been the journey of my life, and all I want to do is introduce people to these products and introduce people to this amazing business opportunity. Beachbody has given me the opportunity to continue stay at home with my kids, do what I love, and help inspire others to DREAM big and follow what they know they can become. I have a special place in my heart for “mom’s” as I know what it is like to do everything for your kids and not put yourself first. I have been there, I have done that. AND I DON’T WANT TO EVER GO BACK. I want to be the mom that can do it all!!!! Love on my kids and love on myself; since when do they have to be separate?
The Beachbody community has welcomed me with open arms and I am not only excited but THRILLED to see what 2012 brings me. My mission is to help new mom’s find their inner strength again and to gain confidence while doing so, love themselves enough to work out and feel confident, and to help them build a thriving and successful business if they want to follow this path. Let’s join forces together and show our kids what their mama’s are made of. Just to be clear, I am willing to work with ANYONE that wants to make changes and wants to help others :}
