I love a new year…how it’s a fresh start and the possibilities are endless! It’s why if you read my last blog post, you know why I created the program that starts 1/16/17. (more at the end of the post on that).
Last week, I took off from work, which didn’t allow me to listen to my podcast like I normally do on my commute in and out of the city. However, I was able to listen to a few and one struck a cord in me, The Lively Show podcast!
The title of her podcast is the same as this blog post (yes, I stole it from her). When I read the title, I had to listen immediately and then when I heard it, I knew I had to do the same on my blog.
I have been holding back on you guys and 2017 for me is about making connections. The only way to do that is to be real. So here I go…this is what I have been afraid to tell you in 2016.
I’ve hinted to it and posted it in a blog post recently that I am no longer doing Beachbody Coaching. I am now officially a “discount” coach.
I have stopped drinking Shakeology because I was tired of it and to be honest it wasn’t making me feel good to drink it. Now I have it once in awhile.
I stopped the workouts because it wasn’t working for my body, causing me more pain and injury than weight loss. Don’t get me wrong, I love the workouts but right now I need a break from them. I know I’ll incorporate them again when I’m ready.
More importantly, why I haven’t come clean earlier is so much deeper than not drinking the shakes or doing the workouts.
You know my story of after having Linc, how I had a postpartum “awakening”, which is the whole reason I started this blog to work through that and help others who might be in a similar situation.
But deep down the reason for that depression and self hatred was that I was unable to accomplish a goal I had given myself in regards to Beachbody. To go full time by the time Linc was born. That didn’t happen..didn’t even come close and I felt like a failure, a fake, a fraud and worthless.
I had busted my ass at Beachbody and it was always the same thing…I was up and then I’d come crashing down. Never understanding why some coaches were killing it and I couldn’t when I did everything, if not more than they did.
What I realize now is not meeting this goal was a blessing.
I am not cut out to be a stay at home mom. Some moms are great at being a stay at home mom (if that’s you, you rock…seriously I think you are amazing!)…that is not me. I go nuts and then I become a bad mom. I work much better being away for a bit and then I can pay full attention to my loves.
I became a coach to help people feel better about themselves. I did not become a coach to meet certain corporate success status, or to appease other people. I did it for fun, not for stress.
Unfortunately, that was what it was becoming stressful, appeasing other people and setting my goals based on corporate goals. It was time to say good bye…it was tough but I know in my heart I did the right thing and I had a positive experience for the most part that will carry with me through other areas of my life.
#2. Manifesting, Intuition, Meditation and everything inbetween
You know I try to meditate and be mindful. But did you know I actually signed up for a manifesting coaching group and loved it! I haven’t told you guys this because I understand it could be a little woo hoo for some.
For 2017, one of my goals is to really tap into my intuition, be present, manifest what I want and find peace within.
More blog posts will most likely be around these themes as it is a big goal of mine and sharing is caring:)
#3 I created a coaching program!
As I mentioned under my #1 thing I’m afraid to tell you, Beachbody was a positive experience and I’m taking what I learned and creating a life coaching program focusing on getting fit, eating right and loving yourself.
I have been hiding my coaching program I created in September from you. I have no idea why…well that’s a lie. I do know. I was afraid.
It will launch in March and I’m so excited about it because no one has anything out there like it.
My program incorporates making lifestyle changes for good, moving your body, using your mind and loving yourself in a way that the fitness industry seems to be missing. Tying all these together creates the best version of you and creates lasting results…no more up and downs.
As I type this part of the blog post, I’m getting excited to share this program with you and a weight has been lifted…finally it’s out in the open!
#4 Corporate Life
Lastly, I’m a corporate women by day and I like it. I want to succeed in my career.
I rarely talk about my corporate job here as I think it will be viewed as a bad thing.
I haven’t talked about it because I didn’t see how I could do both. I felt if I succeeded at my corporate job then coaching wouldn’t happen and if I succeeded at coaching, I’d be stuck where I am in my corporate job.
That is crap. I can do both because my coaching is up to me, no one else and I can make it work within the life I have. The success at my day job will bring success into my coaching.
With a plan anything is possible. And I have a plan!
So there you have it, four things I have been afraid to share with you. I know when I hit the send button, I’ll be freaking out inside but this is me and I’m not hiding it anymore.
I’d love your feedback so please share with me below in the comment section what you thought of this post and what you want to see more of in 2017.
