I’d like to tell you a little bit about how I arrived at this point in my life :) It may not be the shortest thing you’ve ever read, but I tried to keep details that I think are important to where I got to today. This wasn’t something I clicked on for a ‘quick fix’ but it is a program that has allowed me to feel better about myself daily. Sure I still have days where I’m not there 100%, I sleep in, I put my phone down, I’m on my phone too much, I hear mommy for the 80 million time and just want a break, but this program is what allows me to have “me” time that I feel really good about.
Back in March 2019, I reached out to a friend about who she signed up for her program through. I started following a few social media accounts and found a coach I really liked. A couple months into it, I felt like I didn’t fit in and I wanted someone I related to me. Someone that didn’t make me feel like just another person in their field. That’s when I found Morgan! I sent her for a messages and got switched over to run underneath her. Shortly after all that happened, I foundout I was expecting! I was so happy and determined I was going to keep up with fitness as part of keeping me and baby active during pregnancy. Fast forward a little bit and I did workouts here and there, but my energy and motivation lacked, I felt like I couldn’t do it.
Before my little one was born, I knew I wanted to mentally and physically regain myself once I gave birth. When my babe was born in January of 2020, I kinda knew the standard ‘wait 6 weeks to become physically active’ again. I talked to my lovely coach Morgan, who was motivating and inspiring. She made it so easy to talk to and helped me believe in myself enough to get started again. It wasn’t just about weight-loss, it was about making my healthy a priority again. Sure I wanted to loose weight, but I wanted to feel good. I wanted to mentally be better for my kids, physical I wanted to be able to keep up with them, and I wanted to feel in control of myself. This little piece of my life was something I knew I could put as much or as little into it as I wanted.
On February 24th, 2020, I started my first postpartum nutrition plan and workout program. I’ve seen results, I feel good. I have days where I eat sweets, where I skip a workout, but then I makeup for it. The results I experience, come from the effort I put in. When the effort varies, that is totally fine! Of course it’s great to stay consistent but also give yourself grace. I’m learning what I like and what feels good. It’s been an adjustment to be moving my body again, but I feel proud. I try and get my workouts done when my little is napping, but that doesn’t always happen. Sometimes the kids are apart of it and that’s totally okay too!!
When my yearly renewal came up in the middle of March 2020, I spoke to Morgan and decided I would signup to help others. March 21, 2020 I made it official! Wether it’s showing my results or helping them find a program to get them started, I’m all for both! In whatever way I can share my journey, I hope it’ll help and inspire someone else.
That’s how I got to where I am today, and I cannot wait to see where things go from here :)
