Let’s start this month off right! I have a little challenge for you…
That’s right, I don’t want your crap! We’re going to make this month our b*tch! I know everyone waits for the New Year to set their fitness goals and (maybe) start them, but there is no time like the present right? Let’s get skanky-new-year’s-club-dress-ready together:) I’d love to make this an official challenge and offer prizes, but I need a little more feedback from y’all first! Leave me a comment on this post, on Facebook (BBBHealthy), Twitter, or send me a message if you want to see some sort of contest evolve. I know that some of you are working really hard to reach your goals and I want to reward you for that!
This weekend, I had the amazing opportunity to attend the Exercise & Nutrition Works Fast Start to Success Workshop hosted by Lucho and Lisa Crisalle. They are two incredibly inspiring fitness experts with over 20 years experience in this industry. I’m currently studying to become a Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist through their certification program, and this weekend enhanced my knowledge of how to build up my business! Hopefully soon I’ll be able to take on some clients and change lives through their meal plans. I’ll be taking body fat and designing plans like I was born to do it:)
Today, I volunteered to be the case study for the meal plan software demonstration. Which means I had to get up and get my body fat tested in front of everyone! I admit, it wasn’t the best experience. I haven’t been as 100% as I aim to be, and a lot of personal things in my life have set me back. So it was a bit of a wake up call when I found out that I need to get rid of 15% body fat to be where I want to be!
My new toy!
So now I am heading home SUPER MOTIVATED and ready to stay on track!
Not only did I get to spend the weekend meeting new people and learning from Lucho and Lisa, but I also got to speak with Lisa about competing. She is an inspiration and started competing later in life, and was extremely successful! One thing that really made an impression on me was how much support she had. It made me realize that I need that if I want to reach my goals, I need the support of those close to me. So this is my request to all of my friends and family reading this (should be everyone right?):
-support my healthy and fit lifestyle
-don’t ask me to “cheat” with alcohol or food
-keep judgment to yourself when I bring my own food everywhere
-respect my goals (I am NOT going to look manly!!!)
I can’t do this without the support of those whose opinions mean the most to me. I’m serious about this lifestyle and, someday, competing. I hope to do that sooner or later, so I want to stay on track:)
Thank you and have a great week!
