For roughly the past 3 weeks my life has been literally "snowed in". Somehow I managed to still get to do my passion throughout this time and even extend it into a new #fitfam.
Tony Horton posted a challenge about posting a picture of how you #liveinspired onto a new fitness app called #BurnThis. It's basically a Pinterest for all of your workouts and I happened to stumble upon it during the beginning of this snowpocalypse. It is literally people who are as passionate about health and fitness as you are posting pictures to encourage you no matter where you are on your journey. I love having a place where my healthy meals and things I find encouraging are welcomed with open arms because everyone is fighting for the same thing: to be the best version of themselves they can possibly be. It's such a huge part of any fitness journey that is so much more than losing weight and "getting skinny". Truly being healthy is a mind, body, and spirit connection that starts with your determination and motivation. If you're looking for a little extra motivation I highly recommend checking out BurnThis! And I'm not just saying that because I'm an ambassador! ;)
Everytime I fuel my body with real food I feel the difference in my workouts and my professional life. I feel the incredible passion surging through my body. It's that feeling after a really good lifting session when I fight for one more rep. It's that feeling when I fight to max out just 1 minute more during Insanity:Max 30 (Two weeks left and I CANNOT wait to blog about that incredible program!). It's that feeling when I'm in clinic and I actually know what to say and it comes naturally. It's that feeling when I talk to my family and friends and I feel the love and passion in what they do. It's the feeling during an intense spin class and I see the sweat dripping from my student's faces. It's the feeling when I'm pushing them to crank up that resistance as the climb the hill and I just start smiling because I absolutely LOVE seeing them conquer that mental obstacle they happen to be working through. I love smiling in the middle of it knowing it's more that I ever knew I could do. It's amazing what a difference it can make just to know what I'm capable of. I was underestimating myself in so many aspects of my life and I can't wait to see what happens when I keep getting opportunities to share my passion.
Here's looking at everyone who has found their passion and everyone who is still looking! I promise it's out there and right around the corner if you open your mind and embrace the endless possibilities!
