How my life has changed in 6 weeks

I have always wanted to be one of those really organized, productive, scheduled people. You know, the kind that get a lot done, have pre-planned their day and achieve all their goals? I have made efforts in the past and have just not gotten there. Until now, and let me tell you why.

This is going to sound really dumb.... but Beachbody has literally changed my life. A few months ago this girl who I was friends with years ago messaged me on facebook and asked me to be in a challenge group with her. She explained it was where you choose a beachbody workout program and participate in an encouraging online group to stay motivated and accountable to get through the program. If you read my last post you know I had some health issues this year a few months ago - I was wondering if I should commit to something that would fatigue my body more, but I was feeling better and decided to go for it. I chose a program that was 21 days and 30 minutes a day because I figured no matter what my schedule is, I can make that happen.

And I did! And I will be honest, at first I was like "I don't know about this silly group, everyone is posting what they eat every day" cue rolled eyes. But then I realized a few weeks into it that I was getting results. So then I started posting, and I started participating and I made sure I did my workout EVERY SINGLE DAY. And in order to do that I had to start getting organized. I would put Keegan on the bus, workout, shower, and then do homework or go to school. On the weekends sometimes Patrick would workout with me. I became the girl who posted the MOST. I posted sweaty selfies, I posted what I ate, I liked everything everyone else posted, and I tried to be encouraging to the  other girls in the group.

I started looking into online coaching myself because 1) Believe it or not, my goal after getting my opera degree was to get certified as a personal trainer (I know, so not related lol!)  2) I was seeing GREAT results and this was motivating me in a way that gym routines and previous at home efforts had not. 3) It is a fun, pre-existing structure that would make it easier for me to achieve what I already wanted to achieve which is helping other people reach their health and fitness goals. 4) I didn't want to stop this momentum in my own progress!

Since I started coaching I have started having my own challenge groups! AND I LOVE IT. And guess what this has forced me to do guys - it forced me to be even more organized. I have a pretty regular structure to my day now. One of the first things I do is read a book that is motivating and positive. I get emails replied to, my workout done, shower and get ready for the day, and then I go to school or work on homework. By the end of the day I have achieved my goals and I'm ready to hang out with my family and eat dinner. (Usually - sometimes I'm still busy).

This whole thing has helped me become more confident. Physically I feel GREAT. I am excited to be encouraging other people, and I am energized by seeing their hard work. Reading in the morning helps me to prepare my mind for my day so that I start with a positive outlook. These are all things I wanted that are finally coming to light in my life!

If this is something you think you would find helpful in your life then please let me know. I would love to support you through your workouts and celebrate with you as you achieve your goals every day! If you want to scope it out come do this after Thanksgiving workout with me!
