Dear Boys and Girls,
This morning I posted the above picture on facebook. Looking at the pictures sides by side, I could hardly believe it. How had I let myself get to that point? Yea, okay, I wasn't obese. People seem to like to point that out. Fine, agreed. But, I wasn't exactly the picture of shining health and beauty either! Perhaps most importantly, I just wasn't happy with the way I felt.
I looked kinda mushy, and I can definitely tell you that I felt kinda mushy.
So much has changed since I began my journey on July 30th, 2007. Not only am I the fittest I have ever been (and yes, believe me when I tell you, I am only getting better), but I am also the happiest.
Not only did BeachBody help me get my groove back physically, but it has also helped me become the leader I have always known I could be. We are always arriving. Yes, my best me has just begun to shine through.
I've always been driven. I wouldn't have made it through a zillion years of graduate school without that drive. But, transforming my body the way I have and enjoying the benefits that come with being physically fit--tons of energy, improved self-confidence, and a sense of general well being--have allowed me to really go after my dreams.
If you were to come over, you'd see that I'm a simple person. Well, no, I'm not simple, I'm just not materialistic. Money isn't what drives me is what I'm trying to say. What drives me is the feeling of satisfaction that I am spending my life in worthwhile pursuits. Teaching and coaching, it feels like the perfect combination for me. I feel happy helping others while also helping myself.
While I'm not driven by money (Um, if I were, I would have not chosen teaching), I can tell you that not having to worry about money is nice. It's really nice. I just viewed the latest episode of BeachBody Network News below and couldn't agree more with what Tony Barca said: BeachBody allows you to help other people while helping you live the life you want to live, both financially and physically. He didn't say exactly that, but that's what I got from it.
There is an example of someone whose life has changed because of BeachBody and who is now helping to change the lives of others. I am doing the same.
For those of you who feel stuck in your day jobs, who want an extra source of income, who want a more meaningful life, you really might want to consider coaching. It's an opportunity that I'm glad I said yes to.

I'd be happy to answer any of your questions.
I'm so looking forward to the BeachBody Business Opportunity Event on Saturday. More lives are about to take a turn for the better and I get to be a part of that.
Ain't that something!
