Make Your Own Life Changes
In 1996, I decided I was sick of hanging around with a bunch of people who were not motivated. We did the same thing day in & day out. My boyfriend at the time lived in Florida and we decided to move in together…we just needed to figure out where (since I was in New England). We chose North Carolina at random and we both packed up and moved. Just like that.
It didn’t work out ‘quite’ like I had planned, so I packed up & moved 2 years later to a different part of NC because my journey there wasn’t done, just the part with him was. So I left, just like that.
Two years after that, I had a few amazing new friends, loved the city, loved my job but missed my family. My adventure in NC was over, so I packed up & moved…just like that.
In 2002, life was getting boring again (do you see a pattern?) so I changed my friends again. I decided no more bars or doing the same thing every night. I changed my friends again and my job. Just like that. In 2003, I met a boy (again, he was my very first boyfriend when I was 15!) and we got married. Never expected to be married and in RI, but there I was!
In 2006, I had my first son. Amazing. Love. Incredible. Until my husband went back to work & I was alone with this bundle…who was usually sleeping. What was I supposed to do with him? I only had one other friend with a baby. So, I started a moms group & hoped people would join. They did! Over 100 families joined & I made some amazing friends…just like that.
In 2009, I was tired & bored (oops, again?!) I had my second son in 2008 and was just overweight & tired. I saw an infomercial for P90X and knew I had to have it. (and I never buy anything from tv…the internet, yes, but never an infomercial!) It changed my life. I was a size 12 (on the tight side) and in 90 days I was a size 8 (still a bit tight but 10s were loose). I signed up to be a Beachbody Coach for the discount & its become my full time job, well, its my full time pay check but part time hours!
I have gone up & down over the past few years with the scale but I know what to do to get back on track. No more wishing though, no more get quick fixes, no fad diets. I just know I have to eat healthy, exercise 5-6 times per week, drink water & make it happen.
No matter what it is that you WANT in your life, you have to MAKE it happen!!! Go for it!
You deserve it!
