After spending the holiday at the lake in Wisconsin, the Josie and I traveled to upstate New York for Jessy's summer camp performance at Stagedoor Manor Theater Camp. The musical was great and her 3 weeks were amazing. She ended her first ever session at this camp with winning one of the Best Featured Actress Awards for her camp session!
THIS is why I do what I do. So these #fiercefemales can pursue what THEY LOVE to do!
Connecting the Dots
What if that conversation on the blue bench at the YMCA, the one where I was asked to teach group fitness, had never happened?
What if Carl Daikeler and Jon Congdon never had a vision of helping millions of people all over the world and never created Team Beachbody?
What if Chalene Johnson had never given this small town girl a shot as something bigger?
What if Christine Dwyer had never believed in my potential and the potential of this business???
Every. Bit. Of. Our. Lives. would be different.
Every. Bit. Of. Our. Girls’. Lives. would be different.
Every private lesson, every rehearsal, every master class, every summer intensive, every opportunity, every
experience...step by step, workout by workout, shake by shake, conversation by conversation...all because of a few people with vision, all because of small steps taken they lead to big moments.
You never know history is happening in the moment.
It's so much more than pressing play on a workout.
It's pressing play on LIFE.
I'm trading out the crop top for a bikini top and heading to the Lake. Happy Birthday week, ‘Merica!
Don't the the cookouts and barbecues undo all your hard work! Sure, enjoy the holiday but you you CAN stay on track. My top tips:
A few months ago, I set a goal that may seem silly to some, but was super scary to me. The goal was to wear a crop top on stage at Team Beachbody's Coach Summit. This goal scared the crap out of me because I'm not that girl who shows a lot of skin when I work out. Some of it is out of respect for my family but most of it is just a flat out lack of body confidence.
When fear and doubt sit in the driver's seat of our lives, nothing good happens. That's just truth. Doesn't matter if it's being fearful to take a new job or end a long relationship or start a new fitness program or wear a crop top on stage. Fear is fear and when we let it have power over our lives, we sit in a place of average.
Wearing a crop top might not seem like a big deal...but wearing it while working out on a stage, in my town, in front of 20,000 people, about made me puke.
Then I did it. And I survived. In fact, I more than survived. I freaking ROCKED that crop top. After all, confidence comes from doing the WORK right? If we put in the work, then fear takes a back seat.
Maybe a crop top isn't your jam. But I bet you have SOMEthing in your life that you want to do and you're in your own way. You are letting fear take the wheel.
Maybe you've thought of becoming a coach with me and my tribe of #FierceFemales, but you've been too scared to ask questions. Now is your chance to kick fear in the face and learn more in our Behind the Scene Coaching Q&A.
As scary as the crop top was to me, I LISTENED to my mentor, put in the WORK and decided that if one person decided they could wear a crop top, or take that new job, or get out of that toxic relationship, or take that leap they've been wanting to take...that if one person was inspired to do SOMETHING they've been wanting to do, then it was worth it.
Do the thing that scares you. Put in the work. Take the leap. I promise you, it's SO worth it. And I also promise...it's really not that scary, no matter what it is. Because you're so much stronger than you think you are and you can do AMAZING things.
Set the goal. Do the work. Embrace the scary. Kick fear out of the driver's seat. Find your fierce. Yes, you can.
I sure hope to see you in our Behind the Scenes Coaching Q&A group. Can we call it a date?
