Sitting here thinking about my journey as a Beachbody Coach and what is going on in my life right now and it made me think of all the times I had to start over!!!
Lets see…. Joined a Gym in 2008 after I had my daughter—7 months into going to the gym daily (waking at 4am because I had school) i found out I was pregnant with Neyko…. After I had Neyko in Oct 2009 I started at the gym again (FAILED— I wanted sleep and the gym was not working for me) THEN I bought P90X off of an informercial in March of 2010— quit 4 week in— i was afraid you succeed… for a full year I tried every fad diet, diet pill, and anything I could get my hands on to try and lose weight while still being sane enough to take care of my kids (yes diet pills and not eating makes you moody and crazy)
Then the LIGHT was brought to me by My coach… for several month she messaged me and messaged me about trying shakeology and I said no no no… then said LETS TRY IT with the discount because I could never help anyone else— So Signed as a discount coach for the 25% and FELL in LOVE!!!!
Was I 100% clean eating and 100% stay on track when I restarted P90X in 2011?? NO… there were many slip ups, many picnics and parties that I would have cake and ice cream and goodies! But I never let that derail me from the success I knew I wanted and I was worth! So I would pick back up and keep going!
3 years into my journey and life happens…. you get sick (i have not felt myself since Vegas (last week in June)) and you eat off track, you miss workouts, and you just want to sleep and do nothing (miserable, unmotivated) yep that has been me! Am I giving up? NO! Am I starting over? not completely but you could say YES! This is Life, This is my struggle… BUT this is me!!!
NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES YOU HAVE TO START OVER, REMEMBER IT IS OK!!! WE HAVE ALL BEEN THERE A TIME OR TWO AND WE WILL BE HERE TO HELP AND SUPPORT YOU NO MATTER WHAT!!!!
I have started over more than I would like to admit, but each time I feel stronger because of those obstacles that have got in my way!!!
How many times have you given up or had to start over???
