Lost around the waist

I finally decided, that after years of personal, physical, mental and spiritual neglect, it was time to invest in myself with the same level of enthusiasm and care that I invest in others.

I had been following Johno’s e-Fitness Faculty, JEFF, for MONTHS, and I used to dream of being able to be a part of their community, and benefit from their program. I dropped Johno an email and told him that I was going to make this happen no matter what. Fast forward a few months, and I am signed up, assigned to the most amazing coach and was sent my plans for the week, starting 19th August.

While this week was not good for me with regards to the exercise program, I was able to shift my thinking and change old habits, to form positive and healthy new habits regarding my eating. I have always struggled with committing to anything that could possibly benefit me, in any way. Call it self-sabotage, call it laziness, call it whatever you like – it WAS who I used to be. This week has shown me, that I really do have control over my thoughts and actions, and I feel that this is going to be a journey like I have never quite experienced before and that excites me to my core.

To Johno, to my absolutely amazing coach Janelle, and to the rest of the JEFF team – thank you for being so invested in us. Thank you for the constant support, the constant encouragement. Thank you for making me look at myself as someone that is worthy, thank you for making me look at the choices I make, and question whether these choices will benefit me, and my little boy in the future and thank you for helping me WANT to do better and be better. Your energy, your spirit, and your genuine concern for our wellbeing are what I believe to be the reason this feels SO different for me.

I wasn’t comfortable in sharing this decision with anyone, because I know how many times I have said “I am going to do this”, and I have never done it, but truthfully – belief starts within, and I believe! Thank you, JEFF! I can already feel my life changing. I look forward to the next 13 weeks!
