Although I’ve been active most of my life and a certified personal trainer since the age of 22, I didn’t always have the body to show for all of the hard work I was putting into the gym. So, shortly after my 30th birthday, I felt a calling to make some changes to how I was living my life.
To keep myself accountable, I set an outrageous goal to enter a fitness competition. I desperately wanted to see my abs — or at the very least — find out if it was possible.
In this moment, I decided I was not destined to be overweight or bound by poor genetics. Now I was in control. This was the defining moment that changed my entire life.
Once I let go of the limiting beliefs and stories I kept telling myself about why I couldn’t be happy, healthy or fit, everything changed. I lost weight with ease and watched my body transform.
“I finally let go of the limiting beliefs that were holding me back from being my best self”
Once I changed my mindset and eliminated negative self-talk, every aspect of my life changed. Instead of focusing on what I didn’t like about myself or my body, I focused on what I loved. I told myself I was strong, beautiful, worthy and capable of having everything and anything.
But the growth didn’t stop there. The magic happened once I realized I didn’t require validation from anyone else but myself. When you love yourself unconditionally, you will do the things that move you closer to the best version of “you”. You eat healthy by choice and exercise because of how it makes you feel. You no longer sabotage your goals or rely on willpower to achieve results. The “shift” happens when you decide to let go of your former self in exchange for becoming your best self.
In case you’re curious — yes, I did step on stage! In fact, I’ve competed 16 times over the past 8 years, earning my Pro Card along the way. I’ve been featured in a fitness magazine and I continue to help women transform their bodies by teaching them how to shift their mindset and let go of the old stories that no longer serve them.
