My WHY on becoming a beachbody coach part 1

After I healed up a few weeks the doctor started me with Physical Therapy.  I ended up taking it for 8 months, I didn’t really understand why I was taking so long to get my muscles going. My son was constantly going to the specialist and getting testing when we were finally referred to a genetics doctor. We got our answer, turns out he and I had a parital chromosome deletion. Thru years and years of wondering and tinkering with what works without breaking anything we are constantly learning what works.  We aren’t followed by a specialist anymore as the doctors don’t know how to treat us as we don’t fall under a certain syndrome for them to help. I began having nerve pain along with my joint aches and pains. Evently my lower left leg went numb and I thought I was going to have to deal with this the rest of my life.

I started this weight loss journey over 2 years ago and although I worked out it didn’t come off like I wanted. I did most of this with a nasty diet of barely eating. I was just fed up with how my body ached being over a good weight and I was trying hard with what I knew. I finally found the ideal workout yet still couldn’t get to moving. Although I was at my weight goal I still had no tone and at risk for breaking and dislocating joints. I was starting to get very down and frustrated until Christmas 2012 when I found the prep program for TurboFire. I did that for two months and then the program for two months. I was starting the third month when I starting losing concentration of the routines. I was mentally done with TurboFire and not sure how I would do on P90X and Insanity. I finally decided to push play on those two and haven’t looked back. I am proud to say since January I have gone from 40% to 80% pain free with gaining tone and muscles. I have set a realistic goal of December 2013 to be completely pain free. I will get there I know it.

My reason for this blog was to say that I am living a dream of something I didn’t think would be possible with my issues. I realized I could after being told for so long that I can’t because it will harm me.  Nothing can hold you back, you can do what you put your mind to even if it’s with modifications. I feel I can help those who are in the same position I was in just a couple years ago. I am learning and growing each day, I hope I get a chance to get to grow and learn with you one day as well.

And remember no matter what, YOU GOT THIS!

Take care,
