I just had to share this conversation I’m having with a friend about coaching because it gave me so much joy and because I want you all to know you can do ANYTHING and don’t let your imperfections tell you otherwise. •
Do you ever watch me and think I could never do that? Let me ask you something....why not? Clearly if I can anyone can (you know that’s true 🤪) but here’s what I told her about being imperfect.....
• “Oh girl! Let me tell you I’m figuring out all those things too! That doesn’t mean you can’t encourage others though. ❤️ I’ve actually gained weight due to insulin resistance. Idk if you saw my post but I just put my heart out there and shared my journey because the journey is what inspires others. My team isn’t about an after picture cuz that’s not what inspires others it’s the fact that we fight for our lives and inspire others to do the same. THATS why I think you would rock. Not because you are perfect but because you are amazing and you want to help others by sharing your journey flaws and all. If nutrition and fitness were easy everyone would do it. But we are a team and we help lift each other up and those around us. That’s why I love coaching cuz I can be me as imperfect as that is ❤️”
If you read this I hope it lifted you up and helped you realize you have unlimited potential to inspire others💕you are beYOUtiful the way you are now but don’t give up striving to be better. 😘
I loved what a fellow coach and leader @scottiehobbs said in his blog post about the power of our reach. "For most of us there are nearly 1,000 people within 3 degrees of us.
This means at the LEAST you directly have the ability to help influence the lives of at least 1,000 people through your example and behaviors.
Think about that. JUST YOU have that ability. It will take time but YOU influence that many people.
Now imagine once you can teach somebody else to take the same actions as you.
They have a reach of 1,000 people.
Some of those people will do the same and could reach 1,000 more people.
NEVER. UNDERESTIMATE. THE. POWER. OF. YOUR. DECISIONS."
This is diabetes but hey I always slay 🐉🤺my workout even if wild quick sugar drops have me stop early sometimes. Don’t give up friends. And don’t compare yourself to others, just fight to be better than you were yesterday.
Shaun T spoke to me today when he said “if your life is fighting YOU, are you gonna fight back?!” I AM! I’m a fighter! 🥊 •
When with every step my life throws a curve ball, I am DETERMINED to throw a punch and KEEP ON FIGHTING. Because I am worth it. you are worth it. Surround yourself with people who are gonna help you fight the good fight! Get up. You are fierce. You are a fighter. You CAN do this! If you feel like you don’t have a tribe come join ours! Everyone needs to belong somewhere ❤️you belong here.
I AM #1in10
Have you ever heard of “endometriosis”? It’s an illness that #1in10 women are afflicted with. And despite the fact that an estimated 176 million women suffer from it, it takes an average of 7.5 years to receive a diagnosis. Symptoms include chronic fatigue, debilitating pain, infertility, extreme bloating, and bowel/bladder issues (to name a few).
I received my diagnosis 8 years ago after ONLY 3.5 years of searching for answers. It has cost me a lot but it has made me strong 💪🏻💛
