Calling all Nutritionists

Do I have any readers that have gotten certified in Nutrition? I have been wanting to go back to school and get credentials/knowledge in nutrition, one because it fascinates me, two because I feel like it would help me and my Diabetes, and I also feel it would help me help others, which, if you have been paying attention, is what I am all about; that’s my happy place.

But there are so many different ones, and it gets so confusing… I don’t want to do all that work to have it not count for anything, do you know what I mean?

I would love to chat with someone who has been there/gone through it – is this you?

 

Think About It Thursday – Opportunity

Are you SHINING as brightly as you could be?

When you go to bed at night, do you sleep well, feeling satisfaction, content, and HAPPY with where your life is?

No? Then it’s time for a change, wouldn’t you say?

Curious if Beachbody is the change you need? Let’s chat! No, I won’t beg you, or pressure you, or swear it’s for you if it wouldn’t actually be a good fit – I will simply listen to your needs, and we can see if this solution fits those needs, pressure-free!

Truthbomb Tuesday – Traveling

Mmm, yeah, this about sums it up! Part of why I am working so hard to grow my business and give myself financial freedom is so we can travel more – I envision traveling all over with my children, like I did with my parents!

So traveling may not always be free (though with my Coach business, the potential is there to earn free travel!), but by working hard and growing my income, it IS more affordable and much more possible (and, I am assuming, a lot more fun when you aren’t needing to put it on credit cards!)

Did you travel a lot as a child? Do you travel more as an adult?

Thankful Thursday – Beachbody

Stark contrast.

My very first job, at the tender age of 16, the manager didn’t even want to hire me (she wanted someone who could also answer the phones…) and it wasn’t until she was reminded about DISCRIMINATION, that she agreed to hire me. And to some level, that experience has always stayed with me…

In companies where everyone is just trying to get ahead, it means a lot to me that Beachbody is so diligent in making sure those of us with hearing impairments get a level playing field, and they do this in many ways, but some of the most notable are transcribing their weekly National Wakeup Calls, and captioning every training/promotional video they do, and while that may be wasted on some people, it is certainly not wasted on me, and I am so very grateful and thankful they do this. It’s quite a contrast, and they do it willingly and happily.

Technology is a beautiful thing, and a company making the effort to make everything accessible is a HUGE part of why I am grateful for this platform.

Could you use such a platform with which to better YOUR life?

Transformation Tuesday – Pushups

I HATED pushups.

I couldn’t do them.

They caused pain in my shoulders, a lingering injury from a car accident many moons ago.
And they made me feel WEAK.

And I hate feeling weak (does anyone actually ENJOY that?!), so I would avoid doing them. I would just chalk it up to I am not meant to do pushups, and do something less painful. No harm, no foul right?

Wrong. Because DOING them – first in a modified format, then in the real way – is what strengthened me. I participated in my own group called Guns Buns and Abs, and each day called for additional pushups… and so I did them. And I got better. And somewhere along that line, the pain stopped.

 Pushups stopped being a source of PAIN, and started being a source of PRIDE.

If you take any moral from this, it’s your only limitations exist in your head. EVICT them, and watch yourself FLOURISH!

Do you struggle with pushups?

Thankful Thursday – My Awesome Husband

Nothing I do could be done without this guy. I know, I sound so co-dependent, but it’s not that… he is the fire that keeps me going when I doubt myself (happens), when I feel like giving up (happens), when I feel like I don’t matter or make a difference (happens), when I feel like I could possibly not give more of myself or do anything more (happens)… no matter what, this guy keeps me going.

He encourages me, and has from day one. I am sure when I told him I wanted to do this, he probably had his doubts like most other spouses, but I think he saw the light when he saw how passionate and excited I am to help people. When he saw things that meant so much to me that I couldn’t help but cry, I think he realized just how much this means to me.

He has never wavered in his support of or belief in me, and that is priceless. I am sure it is a struggle to see someone go through so much, and I am sure it can’t be easy to encourage someone to keep going when they feel drained and depleted; completely defeated.

But not this guy. He redirects me towards my goals. He points out how much people have said I help them. He pushes me to keep going, to be the best me I can be, to reach more people, help more people.

He knows I am doing this to give us a better life. To give our dog a better life. To give the kids we haven’t yet been blessed with a better life.

And the last two years, he has attended Summit with me. So he firsthand witnesses the sheer exhaustion. He witnesses how jazzed up I come back from workshops and workouts. He sees me light up when I attempt to share how it feels to workout at the crack of dawn with 25,000 like-minded people.

I have always struggled with self doubt and feeling like I matter; like I am visible, not invisible. And he reinforces on the daily that I matter, that I am making a difference, that I can do this, and that I am worthy of it all.

And bonus: he doesn’t point out that I LOOK as tired as I am, haha. Beyond grateful for this guy ❤
