This past month has been really incredible for me! I have gained a new perspective on my life through helping others as a fitness coach in addition to my job as director at a preschool. Although I'm still figuring out the proper balance between the two it has really been a seamless transition into coaching while keeping the rest of my life together. I think it's because the "business" of coaching is not like a job to me. I enjoy being fit and am proof of the results so have found it's so fun to share that with others to get them started on their own journey.
|Singing with the preschoolers is one of the highlights of my week as director !|
|Never thought I would have a 6 pack!!|
On a fitness level, I am almost done with my 8 week program of LIIFT4 and at the end of week 7 I am 3 lbs down and have more muscle tone (especially in my upper body!) than ever before! This makes me down a total of 11lbs since the beginning of summer when I started the 80 Day Obsession program.
|Losing fat and gaining muscle!!|
I am also training for some upcoming races in November and have been running twice a week in addition to the LIIFT4 workouts. I have seen HUGE improvement in my times - partially due to the weather getting cooler and humidity dropping, but mostly I think the program has made me a STRONGER runner! I am running less but performing at a higher level. Being lighter in lbs has also contributed to being able to run faster!
|Hill repeats - best time ever for me!|
|Solo 8 mile training run with a steady 10:30 pace is huge for me!|
My clothing is fitting way better and have even gone down another size in jeans! I am a 2 - WHAT??!? I mean I was a size 10 jeans in high school and a large chunk of my life. I will always have thighs and be curvy on my lower half but now I feel more balanced and less flabby in all areas!!
|Size 2 baby!!|
My coach, Cristine has been so awesome in keeping me on track with all of the things I need to be doing to grow in the coaching business. We went to Super Sunday together and heard some extremely motivating coaches speak about their journey. I have already learned so much that I have been able to take and implement in order to benefit as a coach and be more effective at helping others! I never thought I would be a coach. I'm so glad I took this leap out of my comfort zone and into coaching. It has sparked a renewed fire in my own fitness endeavors as well! Next week, starting November 1st, I will be doing my own challenge group with the help of my friend who has decided to coach as well.
We are going to rock our 21 day program!!🎉
