Secret #1: How I Got Into The Best Shape Of My Life From Home, Used A Simple And Proven Workout Schedule To FINALLY Stay Consistent And Rediscovered Myself Outside Of Motherhood
HOLY crap I almost died. Just kidding, but really after years of being a gym rat I don’t think I have ever done a workout that effective in under 30 minutes. I was so excited! It gave me hope that all those other moms who told me that I better invest in some Spanx because I’d never get body back could suck it. (If you can’t tell ... I might be a little driven by the negative, doubters of the world…haha).
Now after I burnt myself out doing the same workout DVD's over and over again, I discovered that they had more workouts on-demand. Which was like Netflix but for fitness, right? So I could stream any program on my tv/laptop and each program came with a calendar. All I had to do was print or screenshot the calendar, wake up and while my daughter did her morning tummy time I hit play on the workout that calendar told me to do that day. No guess work. No putting together my own workout, no YouTubing random workouts each day. Just hit play, be done in under 30 minutes and follow the 4-8 week program through. Then when I finished I could do that program again OR switch to a different one!
All for UNDER $100 A YEAR.
That is less than my MONTHLY membership to the gym I never made it to...before I even had the kids stopping me from going in the first place haha!
And guess what!?
9 months later, thanks to stealing my husbands login and his inspiration to try it out in the first place- I lost ALL the baby weight, FROM HOME while my daughter did tummy time or literally crawled all over me haha.
It had all of my friends asking me how I did it and got me SO inspired to help them... insert this door opening into something that gave me a sense of purpose outside of the monotonous daily duties of wiping butts all day. SO, I gave out my husbands login to all of my friends and started these text threads to bug them to keep going.
About a month in, my husband found out. He was not happy with me...lol. He was nervous I would get our access restricted, so he changed the password and asked me not to share it with anyone. Of course I understood but it left me in bed that night thinking, “Is this it for me?”…
Scrolling through social media watching all these women build these incredible lives for themselves thinking,
"What am I doing with my life? Is this really it for me?"
"Everything I have been through to end here...?"
Growing up, all I ever wanted was to be a stay-at-home mom... but that was also before the inevitable challenges that navigated me to that dream come true. Life's a journey not a destination and it took me a while to grasp that it was ok to want more...
More meaning. More joy. More confidence. More freedom. More impact.
It’s ok. Seriously, fellow self-induced-mom-guilter. It’s OK.
Not everyone is going to feel what you’re feeling. Why? Because God puts these desires in our heart UNIQUE TO US; and when you can lean into faith instead of fear, you allow yourself to see that He put those desires in your heart for a reason so that you may become who you were MADE to be.
Matthew 7:11 says, “If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!?”
Seriously! How much would you GIVE to your babies to make their dreams come true, right?
Now I am curious. Have you ever been rejected? It hurts. Especially because the one thing ALL humans crave the most is love and acceptance.
And if you have, you’ll probably see how rejection can often times breed obsession, right?
So for example, if I wasn't rejected over and over throughout my life by people I wanted so desperately to love me… I wouldn't have HALF or even a third of the drive that brought me to my today; and the crazy thing is, I'd do it all over because I really love my today.
I love that it built this insatiable hunger within me, pulling me to something larger than myself. To go searching for a way to serve and help other women take back control of their life. To find the light in their current challenges and end the pain for not only myself but others too.
Which leads us into how the googlespace of information brought me to....

How I found meaning in my past and used my health journey to encourage others WHILE getting paid WITHOUT being a fitness expert.
