My Story (see pictures below)
Hi, my name is Norma and I’d love to connect with anyone who is motivated & excited about embarking on a journey towards becoming the best you YOU can be! A better you - physically, emotionally and spiritually. Taking care of our bodies, mind and spirit!
I was just a woman discouraged and frustrated with how she felt. Don't get me wrong, I had and have a wonderful life, an ever growing spiritual journey, married to an incredible man, with a profession that allowed me to carry out one my passions in life. However I struggled with tremendous fatigue, anxiety and had been diagnosed with TRD (treament resistant depression), medication after medication that would not work. There were days I just thought I wouldn't make it. I was told that exercise would help, so I began.
We live out in the country with no gym nearby, so for a year I peddled hour after hour on my $1800.00 elliptical every day hoping that I not only would feel better but change what naturally happens as we get older (not helping my depression I must say). I was not what some would consider very overweight but I definitely was out of shape, sagging, flabby and had found some extra pounds I didn't really need. I would just close my eyes when I looked in the mirror. My eating habits of course were not what I would say healthy in that I thought the less I ate the better and I pedaled away. I DID NOT LOSE AN OUNCE! And I did feel better as long as I was on the machine and maybe for an hour after that. Each day was a struggle. But I was determined to not give up.
There were nights I couldn't sleep and would turn on the TV. There before me was Tony Horton, an infomercial on P90x. "Whatever. I certainly didn't need to spend money on another gimmick I felt was going to be the miracle cure." I thought and changed channels. This happened a few nights in succession, until I one night I stayed and watched. I was getting bored pedaling away every day trying to come up with ways to keep myself entertained. Still I only thought to myself " I could never do that" I had been a smoker for 25+ years and was less than a year smoke free.
I then would see a friend posting on Face-book about "bringing it" - "pushing play" "plyoland" all words I had heard on the infomercial. She must be doing that P90x thing, so curiously I asked her opinion. She encouraged me and said she thought I definitely could do it. Ok, maybe for her. She was in much better shape!
One day I just decided and told my husband I was going to order P90x. He looked at me skeptically. I received the package and to my surprise this was not just a DVD with a workout routine. It was the most balanced fitness program all planned out for you, with a 100 page P90X nutrition plan, a 100 page fitness guide detailing all the workouts and a description of every move. It changed every day of the week so I never got bored. All I had to do was suit up, show up, press play and do the best I could (and believe me the best was far from what they were doing on the DVD) but I felt awesome! Every week I saw progress, My motivation soared.
The 30 day mark came and it was picture time! (see below) The results were amazing! I couldn't believe it. This motivated me to keep pushing play. Not to mention I was feeling better than I had felt in months, if not years. At 60 days I took my pictures again and then I hurt my back and could not continue. Frustrating to say the least. However the results I had attained were far from anything I had ever seen. In my 20's I was lifting regularly, squatting up to 220lbs. I never had achieved this kind of definition.
I did the best I could but could not finish the program like I would have liked. Once I felt a little better I did a round of Brazil Butt lift and plan to continue that as well. Now I'm on round two of P90x. This time I plan, God willing on completing the program. I can't wait to see the results.
Throughout this period, I signed up with Team Beachbody and received all of the support, professional answers and motivation I needed through their many forums. The best part however was meeting my coach, who helped me every step of the way. She encouraged me, helped me with my diet, took the time to speak to my husband and answer his questions.
I became a coach so I could have the opportunity to help others. You see I have a passion for helping people in whatever capacity I can. I love helping the people I am blessed to have cross my path on this journey called life. One way is by reaching their health and fitness goals! I do not claim to be a fitness trainer, nutritionist or health expert by any means. But I do know that getting in shape isn’t always easy, there are bumps along the way for all of us. However, I fully believe having a strong support system and someone on your side who knows where you’ve been and where you want to go is a tremendous asset to success.
I’d be honored to help you on your journey to better health and self confidence. Tony Horton (P90X trainer) says, “You’ve got to love yourself.” I fully believe once you love yourself, you’ll be capable of achieving anything your heart desires. You’ll see the world and everyone in it, in a new light. I would love the opportunity to be your coach and help you get there.
"Success is when I add value to MYSELF. - SIGNIFICANCE is when I add value to others"
UPDATE: Finally a P90x grad and building my team!
Taking Care of The Whole Self
Suiting up, showing up, pressing play and bringing it every day the best I can. Shakeology, clean eating and lots a water! Physically fitness simply means that you need to take good care of your body. A little massage here and then doesn't hurt either :)
Renewing my mind on a daily basis with God's word, Positive thoughts, Motivational readings, Inspirational quotes, listening and reading to encouraging messages
Spending time with my Creator, meditating on His word, doing for others and living an unselfish life to the best of my ability.
