As a Beachbody Coach, Certified Personal Trainer, and Fitness Instructor, I get a lot of people who ask me for help. They say that they want it. They tell me they are “ALL IN”! They tell me they need to lose weight and need to start eating better and working out! They ask me my opinion. They ask me what to do.
Since my passion is to help people as much as possible, I try to show them the best way to get started. I realize some things seem expensive, but in the long run, preventative healthcare is WAY CHEAPER that reactive healthcare. And when money truly is an issue, I even try to offer up a way to do things as inexpensively as possible, to get them started. Especially when they say things like, “I NEED to do this to be here for my kids!”. As most of you know, I can’t have children, so they, and the parents who were given the gift of caring for them, hold a VERY special place in my heart.
But then it happens!
I still get the whole, “I can’t afford it!” EXCUSE!
We live in a VERY public world nowadays. You can’t HIDE from your truth. IF you truly can’t afford it, it will be evident. BUT, if you put your latest purchases on social media and talk about which fast food restaurants you and your children frequent the most, THAT is your truth! And quite possible, it is simply that YOU ARE NOT READY! And it since it is your life, that is fine. But please don’t lie to me and waste my time!
I put my time and my heart and my passion into helping people live healthier lives, and when they get all excited, and then suddenly the line of communication goes quiet and cold, it is heartbreaking to me. It makes me doubt MY journey through life.
But then I remember….THIS is NOT about my journey. It is about YOURS! I can not MAKE you want it. I can not MAKE you see that with just a little effort, you could be healthier. You would be around more/longer for your kids. You would FEEL so much better. But if something material seems like a better fit for you right now, then so be it. I will Bless and Release you and hold no ill will. And because I am who God made me, chances are that I WILL be here when you are ready, so I hope to see you when you do find your way back in the future.
My soft heart does NOT make me a push over, but it does get hurt when it is taken advantage of. And ultimately, it is my soft heart that will be here cheering you on and doing whatever I can to help you reach your health goals when you are ready to make a commitment to You. It is my soft heart that makes me good at what I do. Because when YOU commit to your health, REALLY commit to it, I will do whatever I can to help you reach your goals!
But starting TODAY…I will NOT do that at the expense of my own health! I will not lose anymore sleep, or miss anymore workouts, or miss my meal prep time, chasing anyone down or having the same conversation for the millionth time trying to convince them to care about their health. Just to be crushed when the next thing I see is them sharing on social media about the things they spent the money that they told me they didn’t have to take care of their health, on other “stuff”.
So, when you are ready, PLEASE CONTACT ME, because I would LOVE to help you!
Love. Peace. And Fitness!
MAKE today GREAT!!!
