I get it. I really do.

It’s tough to want to want change, yet feel stuck and overwhelmed with how far you have to go. 

You know you need to change, but might not feel ready to. 

You want results fast, yet forget that it took you years to be in your current state. 

I’ve done the pills that were supposed “to help you lose pounds and help your colon be clean” to only be in the exact same spot when I started them. 

I’ve done P90X (barely 😧)…actually…never even made it 90 days and could barely do the movements. Shoot me, but I also tried Jillian Michaels 6-week abs 🙄

What did I learn from all of this? 

None of the “quick fix” stuff works. 

What did?

👉 Finding a mode of fitness I enjoyed and doing that for years.
👉 Finding balance in my nutrition where I prioritize nutritious foods while also incorporating other maybe not-so-nutritious foods (pizza ☺️) that I enjoy
👉 Focused on the long-game and not just the next 4-6 weeks. 

As a result, I’ve lost 50 pounds and kept it off for years.  I am stronger and more confident than the person I was before I gained all the weight. 

I committed to changing and never looked back. Actually, one of my greatest fears is going back to how I was.  It feels so good to feel good and I didn’t feel good at that time and I don’t want to experience that again. 

In closing, I offer this friendly reminder…”nothing changes if nothing changes.”

As a follow-up, and this is a page out of the “You are a Badass” calendar…”it’s usually the stuff you want to do the least that changes your life the most.”

You can do it.  I believe in you 🤗
