I just love Kim’s success story so much! She decided that she wanted to give back to herself through changes in her daily behavior which then turned into a passion for helping others! From making a commitment to herself, completing multiple workout programs, focusing on her nutrition and being there for those who are starting on their own health and wellness journeys.
1. What have your results been so far?
So far I have lost a little over 40 pounds and have become stronger than I ever thought I would be. It catches me by surprise sometimes just how far I have come since I started. All of a sudden moves that used to be challenging have become easier.
2. What has been your biggest struggle?
It has definitely been believing in myself and believing that I could do hard things. There was a few times when the results kinda halted and because nothing was happening I went back to my old eating habits.
3. How did you overcome that struggle?
After a few days maybe even weeks of beating myself up I did some soul searching and I realized that nothing was going to change unless I put in the effort. I went back and rewatched the nutrition videos, recalculated my food containers and really dialed in on what I was supposed to be eating. Come to find out I was giving myself a lot more little treats then I had thought I was.
4. What did you do to get to your goals?
I made small daily changes that became habits. Those habits are now my lifestyle. It is funny, I never thought I would be one of those people that wants to workout everyday but I know if I do not get my workout in first thing then the rest of my day is just off.
5. What is your favorite personal development book and why?
I have tried a couple of personal development books but I read when I am going to bed so it did not end well for those books because I fall asleep right away. I do listen to podcasts almost everyday on my way to work. My favorite is The Mindset Mentor each podcast is usually under 30 mins but they cover subjects like tips for hitting your goals, overcoming anxiety, shifting your mindset to a positive one and so much more. I have found that when I listen to one of them it really helps me get into a positive mindset right before I walk into the office.
6. What is your goal right now?
I am very happy with my results so far but I would like to loose a few more pounds and tone up my body a little more. I will say I have always been very hesitant to do new things for fear of failure so now my biggest goal right now is to push past that fear and get out of my comfort zone.
7. What is your advice for someone who is just starting out?
When you first are starting out it can be super overwhelming. I would say to first make sure you have a coach who can guide you along and cheer you on, an accountability group for those daily check ins because trust me there will be days that you do not want to eat healthy or press play on that workout. Having that group can make all the difference. The last tip I would say is to start with small changes. Instead of changing your whole diet or trying to meal plan a whole week, pick one meal that you can plan and know that it will be super healthy and just what your body needs, or try just meal planning for a few days instead of the whole week. Remember little changes can add up to some big results.
8. What is your favorite Disney movie and why?
Yikes I do not have one!
9. What made you want to be a coach?
Honestly I started out as a coach for two reasons:
- I wanted the discount
- I knew that if I invested in myself at that next level of commitment I was more likely to reach my goals.
About two months later my best friend came to me and shared how my posts on Facebook had inspired her to begin her personal fitness journey.
10. How has coaching changed you?
Becoming a coach was the best choice regarding my health that I have ever made. It has not only helped me achieve my physical goals but it has also made me realize how my story, journey and life can help change other people’s lives as well. I love helping other women believe in themselves again and see their full potential. Every time I get a message or call from a friend and they are sharing their wins, big or small it makes my heart happy. Knowing that I make a difference makes me believe in myself that much more. We are all so strong and can do anything we put our minds to.
Kim has been giving it her all since she decided to go all in and her results are amazing! Seeing what can be done by deciding treat your body the way it was intended is so fantastic to witness.
As you read this and you see her results and you think “could I actually do this?”
The answer is 100% YES! You CAN!
But it won’t happen until you commit and do this for you!
