As I write the last blog of my first 90-day challenge, I realize I have so many people who have supported me through this process. For example, my brother, David, and sister-in-law, Christina, have been awesome team mates!! I seriously look forward to seeing their continued changes. We have come so far over the course of three months - Christina can certainly do some killer butt lifts.
Then there's my amazing sister-in-law, Kelly, who has taken Seamus (and sometimes the big kids too) every single day, five days per week for an hour, over the last two months, so Patrick and I could workout. Plus she has joined me at Mad Dance which has been such a fun experience to share with her (especially with our gangsta headbands).
My husband is right by my side telling me on a near daily basis, things like, "babe, you need to give yourself more credit, you are doing great." He pushes me to do my best and lifts my spirit when I'm down. The checking me out and compliments certainly boost my ego!
My kids love seeing my new muscles (...not that I'm showing off or anything) and they always ask if we have been to the gym yet; I love that they expect us to go every day. If I even considered skipping a day, I'd feel like I was letting them down.
Then, there's this guy named Dean. He's a fitness coach, motivator, friend, mentor and counselor all rolled into one cool person. Dean has shared some of his big picture ideas for Challenge Fitness, and although I'm not sure how much I can share, I know I can say he is going to change a lot of lives!
One of the most impactful things for me to see in order to believe in myself, are before/after (or for me, current progress) photos. So as a photographer on the side, I have offered to do before and after photos (including an "after" mini-session) for his 90-day Challenge participants completely free. I am just so excited to be a part of changing people's lives by genuinely and lovingly supporting people the best way I can.
I cannot do as great of a job without the support of these really incredible people, so a huge a thank you to each of you. I will reach my goals - as Dean says Believe to See. I believe I will see results....I already do....
