About Fitness Focused Momma....

Hello new friends!

Who is this chick...Fitness Focused Momma? And what does she want??

Well I am a single mother to an amazing teenager,  I work full time outside my home, I'm working towards creating the life I've always dreamed of - being financially free, being the CEO of my own business and being a stay at home mom. I love cookies, soft chocolate chip are my favorite, I run on coffee and sarcasm, and I have been known to use some foul language. I'm also a survivor of emotional and mental abuse. And the best part....I'm about to become your online accountability coach!!

I began my fitness journey on March 10, 2014. I have always struggled with my self-esteem, and weight. I was frustrated and depressed about the way my body looked and felt, frustrated when I was mentally. I was looking for a way to get in shape and shed those unwanted pounds from pregnancy (i wonder how long i can use that excuse LOL), and years of taking myself for granted. Going to the gym was not in the budget at the time, nor did I feel I had the time to spend hours there, and honestly I didn't want to be the heavyset girl everyone stared at while I used every piece of equipment wrong.

After a long time of convincing myself I could never be healthy and fit, and this whole Beachbody thing was a scam - I took a leap of faith and I began my journey with the 21 Day Fix Challenge. It changed my life. I signed up for the 21 Day Fix Challenge pack with Shakeology, and took before pictures and my measurements. The pictures alone made me want to vomit, so that was definitely my motivation to get in shape! I knew I had a problem, but at that moment something clicked for me. I decided from that moment on that I was going to give it everything that I had and make a change. No more excuses, no more convincing myself I can put the cookies down anytime I want. After about 1.5 weeks I was hooked. I could see that my body was changing, I had more energy and I was able to walk up the stairs without getting winded or my knees giving out, and even though I still couldn't do the entire workout without modifying, I no longer felt hopeless.

After the first round I couldn't believe how much better I felt. When I stepped on that scale, and took my measurements, I cried. Not tears of disappointment, not tears of feeling bad - but tears of joy. I accomplished 21 days of exercise, eating clean, and no excuses. I was excited to keep going. I had lost 10.5 pounds, and 12 inches. Not only did my physical appearance change, but mentally I was getting healthier.

Fast forward to almost a year later, and over 70lbs gone...I was happy and excited, I was enjoying being a coach and helping others, but felt like a fraud because I was not that positive happy person I put out there. I was still sad and depressed. I started withdrawing, and I was noticing the more energy I put into getting healthy, the more I realized I was not in a healthy relationship - and it was hurting me tremendously. The thing about mental and emotional abuse is you do not even realize its happening until its to late. Emotional abuse can be a sneaky killer of the spirit...and after 10 years - I knew I had to start a new journey of being a survivor.

Fast forward to now - a year later after one of the toughest decisions I had to make, I am getting back on track. Back to what truly made me happy and made me a stronger woman. Kristin's getting her groove back kids - watch out!!

I want to talk openly about my journey. The good, the bad, the ugly. My journey certainly has not been an easy one, and it is certainly not over - but I realized my life’s passion to give hope. Hope that even if you have struggled your whole life with not being comfortable in your own skin, if you have struggled to find motivation to get healthy and fit, if you missed the red flags because you so desperately wanted to believe that your abuser actually loved you, even if your sense of well-being and your mental health has been cloudy and you have driven yourself into paralyzing self-doubt - there is HOPE. There is a LIGHT at the end of the tunnel. YOU are that light - and I will help you get there. My Beachbody career and my passion are now becoming one. My job is to give hope to others and help them find their purpose through helping others.

I am my own boss, I make my own hours, and I am working towards never having to punch a time clock again. Daily I surround myself with people who inspire me, who are filled with love and positivity. I now wake up knowing that I can make a positive impact on the world, and my family. Beachbody changed my body, it change my mindset, it helped me get free.

Now you gorgeous person you, let’s start writing your story.
