When I was in college, I would get up early to exercise but I knew very little to nothing about nutrition, mindset, empowerment, motivation, and emotional and spiritual growth. I was exercising in a desperate attempt to lose the 100 pounds I needed to lose. However, without the nutrition component, the mindset shift, and the empowerment that comes from emotional, mental, and spiritual growth – I was stuck. The weight did not come off… and it left me feeling like a failure. I WANTED change – but I didn’t know HOW to change.
But that didn’t stop me from trying. It didn’t stop me from reading, studying, watching… trying to understand, learn, and grow.
When I was in my late 30s, I came across an infomercial that offered a fitness program entitled “Slim in Six.” It caught my attention, and I ordered it. I poured over the nutrition details and I began the workouts. At the end of each DVD, a logo splashed across the screen with the words: Decide. Commit. Succeed. I loved the motto and I repeated it to myself daily (my first mental affirmation!). The program was very effective and I began to lose weight – and gain wellness. A few years later, another infomercial caught my attention – and again, I ordered what was offered – a program entitled “P90X.” I poured over that program, and my journey continued. The same logo and words scrolled across my screen at the end of each workout that I had seen in “Slim in Six” – thought I didn’t really put it together.
Fast forward a few years and I was introduced to “Beachbody” and “Shakeology” – and a passion was born. A passion for total wellness – body, soul, mind, spirit. A passion for optimal nutrition with a super food shake that I have used daily with incredible results. A passion to grow my own business and help others with not only their wellness journey, but also their journey into coaching and business growing if that is their desire. A passion to live life to the fullest and help others live life to the fullest.
Beachbody has changed over the years – always progressing, always improving, always amazing me with the changes that they are making. Though the workouts can still be purchased on DVDs, the workouts can all be streamed (Beachbody on Demand), making it easier than ever to use the workouts at home, away from home, outside, in gyms, you name it. I have streamed the workouts on my phone, ipad, smart TV, etc. There are literally hundreds of workouts, plus a cooking show, nutrition tips… all at my fingertips. Shakeology has transformed my health as well as the health of so many people I love including my husband and mom – and countless others. I have watched friends grow in business with me – all while blossoming into independent, healthy individuals with a passion to help others grow.
And now I am entering a new phase, with a Mindset and Nutrition stand alone (2B Mindset) that is transforming me once again.
I have included multiple links on my “Favorites” page and samples of the shakes and bars are available. Contact me for details! And check out the coaching tab for information on becoming a Beachbody Coach – either with me or with Cheryl Brown (see the Wound Care, Cancer, and Shakeology tab the Pets and Healthy Living tab).
Most importantly – let’s begin your journey to total body wellness – whatever that looks like for YOU.
