I’ve had this written up for about a week now. So much has happened, so much has changed, & so many emotions have been felt in that short amount of time. No matter what happens in my life: the people I encounter, the conversations that I have, the feelings that I’ve felt. . This will always ring true..
In the midst of all of the overwhelming Math homework, the late nights in class, the early mornings getting to work, & the stress over my running routine, I forgot about my end goal. I lost sight for a little bit. (FYI: this is NORMAL. We all lose sight, fall off the wagon, etc for a little bit.. What matters is that you bring yourself back to reality & you get back on that horse & resume).
I want to be a health & fitness coach, a personal trainer, someone that helps an individual meet their goals in fitness AND in wellness. Wellness is defined as:
the state or condition of being in good physical and mental health.
And I believe in order to be healthy, you must be mentally healthy as well. I 100% believe in Holistic health & wellness because it is all connected. In order to be fit, we must first have a fit mind to commit & dedicate ourselves to the changes we want to make on the inside & on the outside of ourselves.
I want to help people discover their inner voice. The voice that pushes them one last mile, one last rep, or the voice that just gets them out of bed in the morning.
I want to be an inspiration. I want to be a shining example that life can turn around & it can change if you put your mind, body, & soul into changing it. It’s not easy, in fact its the hardest thing I’ve ever done. But it certainly was the best thing I’ve ever done.
So when you’re feeling down, overwhelmed, or hit a rough patch, remember your why. Because just now remembering mine, it’s lit a new fire within me.
