As the new year passed I reflect back and I’ve been thinking over the last 3 years. I’ve been a coach for Team Beachbody for 3 years now. And I’ve committed to fitness for 3 years and 3 months. It all started with a decision to finally do something about the shape I was in. I committed to 90 days, and honestly at the time I thought that I’d be lucky to get through the 90 days, since I had tried so many other things and either a. they were junk or b. I didnt commit. My ego would love to say it was mostly a. And in regards to the electric ab thing… It was junk.
So here I am doing my best and forgetting the rest and I realized at some point that it felt so incredibly good to be working out and being active every day (I had more energy, more focus, more excitement, stress was gone, and I just felt good), that I didnt want it to just be a 90 day thing. That’s when I decided it wouldnt be a destination. It wouldnt be I wanted to lose 90 pounds. It would be I wanted to LIVE this way.
It went from working out in the house and getting used to being active, to becoming a coach, then starting a fitness group. Making all sorts of new friends and running races with different people. Working out with friends. Just on and on. I’ve developed such amazing friendships, have seen amazing transformation stories, have helped people, gotten an amazing thank you card, and the list goes on and on.
I look back and can say without a doubt that it’s been the journey that is what really counted and not just the goal of getting fit.
That’s probably one of the top things I hope to inspire in other people. Have fun, enjoy the journey, and love yourself and who you are becoming!
