Happy New Year everyone!
I love a fresh start, along with the anticipation of new adventures, goals and learnings that are to come in 2014. As I start out this new year, I have been looking back on last year and the things that worked, didn’t work, goals I reached, goals I chose to set aside and how much I have grown.
Yesterday, I took some time to reflect back even further, back to my teen years and into my early 20’s. These were very difficult years for me as I struggled in silence with an eating disorder and a very unhealthy lifestyle. I remember specifically back to being young when I would make contracts with myself on who I would strive to be in the upcoming year. Sadly these contracts where based solely around food and how much I would not consume. I would physically write out goals based on how long I could go without eating. And if I choose to eat, I would write out how disappointed I was with myself and what a failure I was. This all may sound strange to some of you, but it was my reality and the depth of my insecurities. This was such a horrible time in my life as my mind was constantly filled with destructive thoughts and feelings of failure. It’s hard to look back on the moments I missed out on and the opportunities I turned down in life due to my silent struggle. I want you to know there is freedom from your insecurities and there are people fighting for you when you feel weak. My purpose in life is to see people freed from the bondage in their lives. My passion for personal training comes from a very real, personal place. I want you to know I’m fighting for you and I believe this is your year to experience the joy, peace and the freedom you have always longed for!
One of the major factors in my healing and recovery was fitness. Surrounding myself with people who made healthy choices, and who were honest about the battles they faced, was an important step in seeing me through this time. It inspired me to make healthier choices for myself, which now has a large impact on my family too!
