2 years and 9 months ago, I was at a crossroads. I was a busy mom of two very little ones who adored everything about motherhood – so much that I was losing myself to it. I didn’t look the same (read: I was out of shape), I didn’t feel the same (read: way down on myself), and I knew I needed to make a change.
As a single income household now learning how to provide for two children instead of just one, I never spent money on myself. I researched the best deals and sales for everything we did, but I knew that if I wanted to change my health, my outlook, and feel confident and like myself again, I would need to invest in myself.
$140 is less than the money my husband and I wasted on gym memberships waiting for some kind of miracle to get there consistently enough to physically help us in any way.
$140 is less than the used elliptical machine we bought off of Craig’s List which has since collected dust and taken up space in various areas of our house.
$140 is less than a one time, one hour spa treatment that I thought could possibly rejuvenate me.
$140 is less than A LOT of things we’ve wasted money on.
Luckily, 2 years and 9 months ago, I spent that money on a T25 and Shakeology Challenge Pack and signed up for an online challenge group thanks to the 30 day money back guarantee.
I took a chance on myself, and that one decision set me on a path to KEEP taking chances on MYSELF and not just on my family for a change.
Two weeks after joining that challenge group, I became a coach.
While learning how to not only take care of myself again but also get in the best shape of my life, I helped others. Every day – online – while mothering remained my top priority.
Helping others – a privilege that I loved then and continue to adore now – turned into being able to cover the car payment each month.
Then covering the cost for my family to go to Disney World for the first time.
Then earning a vacation paid for by Beachbody.
Then we realized this helping people from home thing had replaced my former salary as a teacher.
Now, we’ve been on many paid for vacations thanks to this opportunity.
Now, I run a full business from home with a full focus on mothering still being how I spend the majority of my day.
Now, I’ve led my team – Team Fit & Natural – to earn what I believed was an impossible status to reach – ELITE 2015 meaning I was in the top .01% of 400,000.
Now, that chance I took on paying $140 for something thanks to a muddled recipe of seeing a Facebook post from an old friend about T25, a 30 day money back guarantee, and feeling terrible about myself has brought me:
– A life designed by ME
– A level of health and fitness I didn’t think was possible for me at age 39
– A virtual community of new friends and teammates who support me and motivate me every day who live all over North America
– A larger purpose
– Belief in myself
So if you watch my posts, and you wonder how much it cost to get to where I am… It was $140.
And a leap of faith (but not a big one because I was hanging my hat on that 30 day money back guarantee – LOL!).
