A Lot Can Happen In One Year (My 1 year Transformation)

On September 19th, 2014 I took a leap.  I decided to take some steps to better my fitness.  I decided I wanted to improve my nutrition, and overall health.  I was almost 6 months postpartum with our third baby girl and I was doing ok.  I was working out a little bit here and there.  Trying to make it to the gym 3x/wk and eating as healthy as I could.  I was also breastfeeding, in school part-time, was stressed to the max and just feeling like I didn't have it all together.  So why not add something else to my plate, right?!

I decided I wanted to take it to the next level and do a competition.  I started Body Beast in December and didn't look back.  One round of that and one round of 21 Day Fix Extreme and I was in the best shape of my life.  I didn't place in my competition but I did reach a huge milestone- pushing myself to a limit, setting a goal, reaching it, and being proud for taking on something I could've only dreamed of doing in my previous 31 years!  I set my sights high and did another competition June 27th and this time with my husband!  He saw my amazing results and wanted in too- he started Body Beast with me in December and completed a couple rounds and is now in the best shape of his life at 34 years old!

Life is good.

One year in this business and I know in my heart this is where I'm supposed to be.  My passion for helping others has only grown and the ability to change my life and the lives of others knows no boundaries.  The sky is truly the limit.  I thank God every day for the blessings he has bestowed upon our family and to allow me to do what I do.  And I look forward to the next steps in this journey.
