My coaching journey started years ago when I realized I was becoming a negative person, had no energy and was making bad health decisions when prior to college I had always been active. So it was about the physical healing first. And while going back to the gym helped, I went from almost size 12 to size 9, it took 5 hours of my day and I plateaued. I then found what I needed, and it was virtual, saving me time, money and I could keep going on trips and abroad. I broke the size plateau!!
I never stopped doing home programs. Again the importance of failure: muscle failure means results I got to size 6 and for the first time and noticed my love handles trimmed up. I also noticed my numbers at the Dr were showing I was no longer pre-anemic. I was more positive, focused and had way more energy. I started coaching others since I was now asked how this and that. Years went by and I realized I never dove ALL into coaching. I would avoid the word coach at work, but I got to mention it to a few coworkers, signed them and was talking about it on social media. My Mom passed away, I moved to a new home and I let go of my job, all big life changes pretty close to each other. I went full time coaching and it became about a better lifestyle, helping busy people like me with time management, confidence and mentoring other coaches as challengers were then interested in helping others too.
I got pregnant and I gained about 50lbs. My business kept growing, and still I was failing when talking to others, and learning with it. And then I had my baby girl and the after birth happened. I had to step away from the business for some time and had to wait 40 days to workout. This meant restart. It felt like MAJOR FAIL.
These past months, I restarted with working on my mindset first, got back on my feet, got coaching going again, mentally and physically. I am BETTER at what I do, if not one of the great ones too, and yes I boast about it because I know what it's done to those that have been with me all this time.
