My Mission

Being a part of a company who’s motto is End The Trend has been such a game changer for me.

I was doing alright on my own, or so I thought.  I had lost a little weight, gotten in better shape, I had become a runner before I found Team Beachbody.  But I still struggled a LOT with nutrition and a true plan for my workouts.

Finding this team gave me the tools I needed to reach my goals.  Last summer I was truly in the best shape EVER!  I was smaller, leaner, tighter, more fit than I had ever been in my life at the age of 43!

Feeling great, summer 2015

Then this winter, I got sick.  I let myself fall off from my daily workouts because I couldn’t get out of bed for work half the time.  I allowed myself to fall back into bad nutrition habits because frankly, I wanted to eat junk!  Yes, I knew it would make me feel worse eventually but I was too busy feeling sorry for myself.

I’ve gained about 20 pounds.

Summit came and I felt horrible!  Last summer I was this picture of fitness!  This summer… not so much.  I was fluffy and feeling completely unworthy of representing a fitness community.

Then I remembered something….

THIS IS JUST PART OF MY STORY!  MY STORY IS NOT OVER!

So I went and I remembered that we are ALL in different places on our journeys.  Nobody’s path is straight.  We all have our ups and downs and THAT’S OK!!!!

I’m very glad I went because it lit a fire under me.  I’ve eaten very well since I got back.  Following my portion controlled system and doing my daily Country Heat workouts.  It’s only been three days but I already feel more focused.  I know this is the right path and I’m excited to see where I will be after the 30 days is up!

I’m going to stop beating myself up over my setback.  It’s only a failure if I give up and that’s just not who I am!  I’m WORTH the effort it will take to get back to where I was!

I’m going to share this because it’s awful and scary, but I hope it’s a little inspiring as well.

Here’s my “before” pictures I took just last week.

Before Country Heat, July 2016

So you can see that I have some work to do.  And that’s OK!!!!  I’ll get there!  So will you!

I would love to help!!!!!  Together we can help, one person at a time, to end the trend of obesity!!!
