I have done a lot of things in my life so far! Through the years, the careers and the activities, one thing has been true much of my life – I have strived to be fit in a way where I was pleased with my looks and the way my clothes fit. I have tried a lot of different programs to achieve this goal, but constantly found myself falling short. When my sister in law suggested I try 21 Day Fix Extreme, I didn’t know one thing about it, but went for it anyway. What a life changing decision!! I am finally feeling good about what I put into my body and am glad to report that this is a program I stuck with and was able to reach my goals. I was so pumped with my results, that I am anxious to help others on their journey to being healthy and fit.
Besides all that being healthy and being fit stuff, I have also struggled with self confidence and self esteem. On the face of things, I bet people believed me to be very confident, but I have always been searching for “the thing” that would make me happy and happy with myself. Since beginning this “new” health and fitness journey in the spring of 2015, I have gained a real sense of self. At 45, I finally feel like I have figured out who I am as a person, a wife, a daughter, a friend and a mother. I have walked through my life letting who I was be a reflection of those around me. They like baseball? I should like baseball too! Let me learn all about baseball! From one thing to the next, I spent my time fitting myself into the persona matching the individual or group in which I found myself. A key component of this journey has been the personal development I have been involved in. Books, articles, podcasts – you name it and I am wading through it all. About 4 months into the experience – which I now realize is my life – I looked at my husband and said, “I know who I am!” I am so thankful to be ME!
