On Friday night, after a long day of fun. My eldest had dance competitions, followed by a group lunch and a night out with some friends, I reconnected with a high school friend of mine. Funny enough, I don't see many high school friends but this friend worked with me at Sunrise records when we were teenagers (oh yeah i was that cool - lol), then after almost 15 years of not seeing each other we saw each other in (of all places) Disney World. She was there for the day - (the day!) and we happened to see each other in a restaurant at lunch - now that's fate!!!! Fast forward a conversation and a few more years and I decided it was time to reconnect with her again. You see my friend, and now coach and mentor, after having her 4th munchkin, has been successful and removing her own marshmellowy fluff. How? By replenishing her body with a superfood nutritional cleansing system and resetting her own system.
At first, I must admit, I thought the whole thing was a bit intimidating. People all cheering and high fiving after losing 10 pounds? I mean, who does that? But then again i was tired of being tired and stressed and anxious and subservient to my plights and not knowing what to do about it. I was tired of not being able to sleep at night and waking up so tired as if I hadn't even gone to sleep the night before. I was tired of the nervous feeling I always had in the pit of my stomach and not knowing what it was from or how to deal with it. And I was even more tired of not being able to control my emotions and taking it out on my loved ones.
That is when I started really looking into the program and the company as a whole. I started seeing beyond the high fives and cheers and started looking at the athletes, the real people, the accomplishments of real people and the sense of community they all represent. I mean there is nothing wrong with high fives, of course and there are actually people whom enjoy them as it gives them a sense of accomplishment and what they have done as good. I get it. I really do. What I get even more though, is that everyone wants and needs a like minded community that supports each other through the very scary beginning and the most excellent successful transition. This company of people that I am with now are so super supportive and fun! Fun to be with, fun to be around and embrace you, i mean literally hug you, from the first meeting. I am not used to that but a funny thing happens with that first embrace and that look of excitement in THEIR faces. It ignites you. It really lights a fire under your ass! It makes you so super excited to be connected with these wonderful, endearing people and all you want to do is share it with everyone around you.
Beginning any program is scary, I get that, I am that. Since I was so set in my ways about my diet program, I was closed minded to other possibilities and options. I have always taken other people's advice and opinions and thought I was in the know until I got to speak with my new mentor and friends and became open to yet another way and another process. Change is scary but with good friends and a complete support system I could trust (and my own self eduction), I know something is going to be different this time. I know that I will be able to help myself conquer all of my internal anxieties and with my external transformation, I'll be able to finally show off what all of my hard work in the gym has done.
I cannot wait to show you exactly what 7 day and then 14 day and then 21 days and so on can do. I am pumped by my friends, old and new. I am psyched to share my journey, my experience, my triumphs with all of you.
Join me on my journey and let's start a revolution together.
