Financial Freedom Friday – Quietly Building

I am not just DREAMING… I am DOING.

I am more of a quiet hustler… not completely silent, but I am quietly moving along and doing girl boss things.

Being surrounded by like-minded people last week has only strengthened my resolve to achieve financial freedom. And its only been recently that I started to truly believe it was possible. I knew it was before, too, but we kept going 1 step forward, several steps back, and it was discouraging to some degree.

But here, in the now… I know it’s possible. I know it’s in motion. I know it’s not overnight, but I know it is happening. I am working hard, and quietly but seriously building the life I WANT, not the one given by default.

Are you? Do you want to be? Do you think we could do it together? Because… I DO! And I would love to!

Thankful Thursday – It Takes A Village

In less than a week, I get to see some of my tribe at Coach Summit in NOLA. I see the local ones at trainings and such, but we are scattered throughout the country, so I am excited to see the ones not so local.

These people have propped me up when I am down. They have helped me with notes, with calls, with confidence, with mindset, with everything under the sun.

I am THANKFUL for them, and GRATEFUL for them. I am blessed to be part of this team; blessed to link arms with these men and women, and march on in our quest to better ourselves, our lives, the lives of others and the world. I didn’t know when I decided to become a Coach that my cup was going to feel so very full, but I am so grateful for it.

No one stands alone, for it truly takes a village!

Thankful Thursday – Beachbody Coach Summit

Y’all have probably seen that I am a Beachbody Coach – I try not to be obnoxious about it on here because I know people have very thin patience for that stuff, sometimes, but I do try to run my business and I adore helping others; I always have since I was a little girl, it just makes me feel good and like I do a small part to improve this massive world.

coaching changes lives - yours, and others.

Next week is Coach Summit in Nashville, and this will be my second year attending, and I am excited. I am grateful, I am thankful.

You see, it may sound silly, but I cried endless tears over my Diabetes diagnosis. Out of fear, out of frustration… I sobbed. I was terrified, and really worried about how I was going to get this under control.

I don’t think she knew it at the time, but when Rebecca approached me about joining her Challenge Group, I was ambivalent and doubtful, but I decided to do it just because I didn’t have anything to lose, and it was going to help her out, and I was all for that aspect.

If you asked me then if I knew that would turn into what it has, I would have laughed, hard. I never had any intention of helping anyone – in fact, I distinctly remember saying “who wants to take health advice from a Diabetic?!”

I mean, that seems counterintuitive, am I right? But such is the beauty of trusting in the Universe… she had plans for me. She was going to help me help myself by helping others. She was going to show me how strong I am, how inspiring and relate-able I could be, and how I could be the light for others desperate to see some light on their path.

I still struggle to believe I have any value to add, and its during these times that my teammates, and my challengers, somehow, someway, manage to chime in and remind me that I do bring value, and I am grateful for that.

The Beachbody opportunity really has done wonders for my self esteem, confidence, my ability to power through and it’s also kept me accountable and on track with my own health – something I TRULY needed and was desperate to achieve.

It’s never easy. but some battles are worth fighting – and yes, this is totally one of them.

So next week, when I am immersed in a wonderful city full of people who feel exactly the same way I do, people who radiate light and love and encouragement, I will think back to how it all started – with a question – and I will be so thankful that this turned into the answer that I needed.

We are all in this together!

 

Sweat It Out Saturday – Nashville

I have been in Nashville for Beachbody’s Coach Summit for a few days now… the last two days I worked out with Shaun T and Chalene – both are amazing, energizing, fantastic little powerhouses of enthusiasm for fitness, and I had an absolute BLAST working out with them.

Shaun T’s T-25 program is, as you might know, what got me turned onto home fitness programs, and Beachbody. I love the guy, you can tell he lives for what he does! He sure worked our bodies, but it is WE who are reaping the benefits!

Chalene is who I go to when I need a good workout but am in a time crunch… her HIIT 15 minute program is amazing, I never thought I could work up such a sweat in just 15 minutes but low and behold, I do! Her energy is contagious, and she’s incredibly relatable! Love her.

Now that we got our workouts in, its time to head out and explore a bit before the Beachbody Celebration tonight. SO grateful and thankful to be part of such an awe-inspiring, amazing network of passionate coaches!

Cheers to being healthy, happy, and fit!
