I cannot say how crazy this year has been already, I can only apologize for not posting like I normally do. I haven’t forgotten about you, honestly it’s been a bit overwhelming and I have been close to having a mini breakdown. With flying home for Christmas and having major mixed emotions there, then flying back and the biggest let down I have had was with myself. I have let my emotions dictate my eating. So instead of going forward I have actually gone back. Feeling embarrassed and ashamed, I had a hard time posting because I felt like a hypocrite.
I’m an Emerald Beachbody Coach and with that I have some Challengers and Coaches that look up to me for guidance and support. So I was beating myself up trying to focus on how I can do that for them when I’m doing everything the opposite? I discovered something about myself, within this last week. My Company is launching a New program called 80 day obsession. Every Monday they send out a podcast of what news is happening and some inspirational speaker, to help us and give us tips of how to be an awesome coach for both personally and professionally. There was one speaker that really got to me, let’s just say he got my inner self fired up! Then I went to a Conference last Sunday and let me tell you, that in itself really got me fired up. I realized that I am who I am. I have good days and Bad days, I need to focus on why I was overeating and what can I change so I won’t keep going to that habit again?! I also let my workouts slack a little, why do I do that? It’s the one thing that helps the stress and pressure and makes me happy and feel good!
I have been asking people/friends what goals they have been making for the New year? it’s funny how many different responses I’ve been getting, but what I realized is I need to focus on my goals too. SO I got back to the basics, I made a vision board, I cleaned out my craft room/ office/ gym. Organized it a bit( still have stuff to do) then I sat down and made a list of what I am going to work on to help me be a better me, better coach and this is what I came up with.
- TIME MANAGEMENT – a biggy for me. I have always been a fly by the seat of my pants. What I post is what I’m feeling right now. So I need to schedule and be productive. I have already made a biggy, I have discovered how to actually use my smart phone as a better tool. Check this out!!
- MY HEALTH- I started this journey 4 years ago, I remember the fire I had and the drive to get to where I was. So I’m focusing on just that, and thank goodness 80 day obsession has come when it did. I will be definitely giving it my all. I put on my winter coat (it was tight) I put on my fatty pants ( they were too tight) I didn’t need to go on a scale for me to find the truth. But I did this morning I am up to 163 lbs. The heaviest I’ve been since 2 years ago. That’s why I’ve already begun the nutrition plan and the challenge hasn’t even started yet and I’m already feeling a huge shift in both my mind and body!!
- PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT- I think one of my achilles heel is that I am always worried about what people think of me and sometimes it dictates how my day will be. So my goal is to focus on healing my mind, with meditation and destress and best of all NOT Care what others think of me. I am my own person. I have a lot to give and I have a lot to share and I know that I will do whatever it takes to help people that are looking for goals they want to reach but are not sure how to do it. My daughter told me about a challenge that she is doing and it’s read a book a week. One of the biggest things that Beachbody emphasizes is Personal Development. SO I am stepping up mine and I’m going to be reading a lot more build up my confidence and my leadership!
This Blog was a big step forward for me as a coach and a person, and I let it go to the wayside. I am now more determined than ever to give it my all. I love to share what I have accomplished and if it helps anyone do the same, then I have achieved the biggest goal yet!! So don’t give up on me, I am going to be a stronger, healthier, funnier and most important reliable Friend/ coach / Blogger. Stay tuned!!
