My Transformation

Here’s me 30 lbs overweight…You might say, “you still have abs” or whatever but look into my eyes. What do you see?

You can’t imagine the war going on inside me when this pic was taken…

If there’s one thing I’ve focused on my entire life, it’s been my health.

Then everything changed the day I lost Coach C.

Here’s the Fun Facts:
✔Slipped into deep depression and PTSD
✔Gained 30 pounds
✔Truck totaled in collision
✔Fired from job
✔Marriage called off
✔Moved back into my moms

And to top it all off, my I racked up 40k in credit card debt buying stuff to feel better …All in 6 months.

I had successfully laid the groundwork for an award-winning country song.

My habits, behaviors, self-image and confidence were non-existent…I didn’t even know who I was anymore.

My energy levels were on empty and my family suffered just as much as I did because I wasn’t as present and engaging.

I knew I needed to start making changes but was so overwhelmed at knowing where to begin that I didn’t even start.

I had no action plan–I didn’t have anyone to show me how to regain control of my life and my health.

I didn’t want to ask for help because I thought it meant I was weak (which I was).

So I made changes. BIG changes.

I chose to invest in myself by hiring coaches, listening to podcasts, and hung around more people who had already created the results I wanted to have.

And because of this, I’m 32 years young and getting happier, stronger and healthier every year.

I’m grateful for this because I’ve been able to do some pretty incredible things like: run with the bulls in Spain, climb Machu Picchu in Peru and compete on the hit NBC show, American Ninja Warrior.

I’m living my ideal life because of the commitments I made to myself to regain my health–My parenting level is top notch, my business has grown exponentially, and my level of impact has skyrocketed.

And the truth is, you can do it too. Every day that you choose to prioritize everything else over your health, is another day you are robbing the world of your gifts and your best self.

What are you leaving on the table by neglecting this? How many more years could you impact?

The world is waiting for you.
