Everyone has a “why” – it’s what drives us to accomplish our goals. Our reason for making a change & becoming the best version of ourselves. Whether it’s losing weight, getting healthy, being active, or non-fitness related things like being grateful or spreading kindness.
Today, I challenge you to share your “why” – because you never know what lives you will affect. Someone out there might need to hear your story. That can’t happen if you don’t tell it!
Here’s my WHY:
I have probably said this already in an older post… but for me, losing weight, getting healthy, and living a healthy and active lifestyle for the rest of my life is about a few things. First, I have a heart disease (which you can read more about here), so I want to have a healthy heart so it’s not worse off than it already is. I don’t want to make things harder for my heart to work by having excess weight. I want to make my heart as strong as it can possibly be. The other part of my “why” is being alive for a long time so I can have a family and a life with my boyfriend. He worries about me with my heart and me not being healthy just makes that stress worse. I also want to be around for my mom and the rest of my family, and my friends. I want to be happy. My outer appearance is just an added bonus of me losing weight. More importantly, I want to feel good on the inside.
My “why” for sharing my story, starting this blog, and becoming a Beachbody coach, as I mentioned in my Beachbody Story post, is to help people and inspire people. I want to make an impact – even if I just help one person, that is absolutely worth it.
Being part of ambassador groups such as I’m Fit Possible have been incredible opportunities to connect with other like-minded people and share my story. I’ve truly enjoyed being part of these groups and am so grateful for the opportunity to be part of these communities! A huge thank you to Tara and I’m Fit Possible, as well as Fit Approach/Sweat Pink, Delta Labs, FitFluential, and Girls Run Fast for believing in me!
