It’s Never Too Late to Be Your Best You!
As a 50 year old wife, mom, and grandma I have learned that it’s never too late to become your best you. I am in better shape now than I was in my 20’s and that is a fantastic feeling. I have always loved fitness and have worked out for years. My downfall always came in my relationship with food, however.
I have always been a self-proclaimed stress eater and would often justify my overeating with the life circumstances I was dealing with at the time. Plus, I worked out a lot and thought that would override the junk I was putting in my body. I have always been a huge fan of sweets, especially candy, for as long as I can remember (just ask my dentist). I can even admit that I have experienced many days in my life where I didn’t eat anything BUT candy….no veggies, no fruits, no healthy carbs…JUST candy. I always felt sluggish, and it seemed that the more sweets I ate the more my body craved them!
I lost my mom in January 2014. As I watched her health deteriorate due to many issues that could have been prevented if she would have taken better care of her diet and overall lifestyle, a light bulb lit up over my head. I was going to be headed in the same direction if I didn’t get my act together. I had dreams! I had goals! I had too much life ahead of me that I wanted to live to its fullest! It was at that moment I decided to change my lifestyle and my eating habits. It was at that moment I decided that I was worth it…that I mattered…that I didn’t want to end up just like my mom.
I signed up to become a Beachbody Coach a couple months after losing my mom and have never looked back. I took control of my health by totally changing my eating habits. Now I focus on clean, whole foods that fuel my body. Candy and pop are a thing of the past (not that I don’t allow myself an occasional treat). And the best thing of all is that I’ve been able to help so many others (especially friends my own age who were unhappy with their own health) to make positive changes in their lives, too. I, and those who have trusted me enough to let me help them, are living proof that It’s Never Too Late To Be Your Best You! Are you ready??
