So you have decided to take the plunge? Awesome! Turning your life around? Turning over that leaf? No more daily trips thru the drive thru? No more greasy pizza for breakfast? You my dear are an inspiration! Not only to me but to others! A year ago my life changed even more. I was blessed with an amazing health coach. She made me think beyond walking daily. I always thought that was enough. Until then…..She introduced me to a whole different world, I got to make some amazing friends during this journey. It took for me the word PUSH to a whole new level. I strongly advice to reach out to someone who can be an influence in your life. Not someone who is perfect, not someone who never screws up and is always a cheerleader but someone who is beneficial to your needs, knowledgeable in the field you are interested in studying and above all someone who is down to earth and real. You may be strong willed, have all the motivation in the world but you need this person in your life. This can be YOUR person, one that you build a trusting friendship with and as far as I am concerned there is no one I more admire than someone who is not afraid to stand beside me and sweat like there is no tomorrow, push themselves harder than they thought possible, and is not afraid to cry with me on bad days, and celebrate the good ones with a hug. Friends that sweat together stay together. Sarah Kroes is an amazing person who I will put on a pedestal because yes she deserves it. She trains hard, she speaks from the heart, and she cares more about you than sometimes you care about yourself. You need someone that is not afraid to show you through their eyes what they see in you. If you do not believe in yourself……allow someone to show you how much your worth really is in life. You might be pleasantly surprised. Doors will start to open you never realized were even there. Results? Someone you can love when you look in the mirror, someone who you are proud of, and someone who without a shadow of a doubt can see their self worth on a daily basis, the way everyone should see themselves.
