    AS A SINGLE MOM OF 3 BOYS, WORKING PART TIME AT GENESIS FITNESS IN ROCKY MOUNTAIN HOUSE, SPORTS, AND PARENT HELPER AT SCHOOL…..I HAD ALWAYS SEEN IT AS IMPOSSIBLE TO GET MY FIGURE BACK, HAVE ENERGY AND LOVE THE SKIN I WAS IN AS A WOMAN! I ALWAYS THOUGHT I HAD ALL THE TIME AS A PERSONAL TRAINER TO HELP OTHERS ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS, BUT LET MYSELF FALL SHORT OF ACHIEVING MY OWN, MAKING EVERY EXCUSE I COULD TO JUSTIFY IT! IN THE FALL OF 2014, I DECIDED TO STEP OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE AND DO SOMETHING FOR MYSELF, I SIGNED UP FOR THE BMM’S BIKINI MODEL CHALLENGE! I DEDICATED MY TIME TO THE GYM AND PROPER EATING, AND STILL MADE IT POSSIBLE TO BE A MOM WHEN NEEDED! I LEARNT THAT MY TV TIME BECAME GYM TIME, MY MIND WAS FOCUSED ON BECOMING A BETTER VERSION OF MYSELF! BY THE END OF MY 12 WEEK CHALLENGE I FELT FANTASTIC AND READY FOR MORE! I HAD MY FIRST MAJOR SET BACK IN FEBRUARY 2015 WHEN I UNEXPECTEDLY LOST MY MAIN MAN, MY DAD……AND THEN AGAIN IN MAY WHEN I HAD MAJOR ABDOMINAL SURGERY! 2015 WAS KICKING MY BUT AND ALL MY GAINS AND PRIDE IN MYSELF WERE DIMINISHING ALONG WITH IT! IT TOOK UNTIL CHRISTMAS THIS PAST YEAR FOR MY 12 YEAR OLD SON TO BRING TO MY ATTENTION HE MISSED ME BEING SO HAPPY, MY HEART BROKE, AS I WASN’T ONLY LETTING MYSELF DOWN, BUT I WAS LETTING MY CHILDREN DOWN! I INSTANTLY TOOK ON THE NEW MOTTO THAT “2015 KICKED MY ASS, NOW I WAS ABOUT TO KICK 2016 ASS” I RESIGNED WITH THE BODY MAKEOVER MOVEMENT AND WENT IN DEPTH WITH MY NUTRITION AS DIRECTED BY THE PROGRAM. I SET MYSELF A GOAL THAT BY SPRING I WANTED TO HAVE MY LONG TIME BEST FRIEND VANESSA WITH TICKLED PINK IMAGERY DO A BOUDOIR SESSION…….I DID IT! I HAVE NEVER FELT MORE EMPOWERED! I HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND BE PROUD OF WHO I WAS, NEVER HAPPY WITH HOW I LOOKED, I WAS JUST A GYM RAT……AND FOR THE FIRST TIME I LOOKED AT SOME PICTURES AND FELT BEAUTIFUL! MY ENERGY AND ZEST FOR LIFE IS THROUGH THE ROOF, MY ABILITY TO ENGAGE WITH MY BOYS IS AMAZING, MY LOVE TOWARDS MY MAN IS INCREDIBLE AND I COULD NOT HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT ALL OF HIS LOVE AND SUPPORT! I HAD SPENT SO MUCH TIME FOCUSING ON THE EXCUSES AND THE ‘I CAN’T’, THAT I HAD NEVER ALLOWED MYSELF TO SEE MY TRUE POTENTIAL! THIS IS ONLY THE START, IT’S MY NEW BEGINNING! I AM CURRENTLY TRAINING FOR MY 200HR BAPTISTE YOGA CERTIFICATION, AND AM PROUD OF MY ACCOMPLISHMENTS! I HAVE LEARNT THAT LIFE IS GOING TO THROW CURVE BALLS AT ME ALL THE TIME, BUT IM READY, AND THEY WILL ONLY MAKE ME STRONGER. I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY, AND TO TRULY FEEL WHAT IT’S LIKE TO HAVE SUPPORT FROM THE BMM FAMILY AND SHARE MY JOURNEY WITH! THE BEST IS YET TO COME!
