So, I’ve been a little (a lot) MIA as of late. Life is happening. A lot of life is happening and if I’m being honest, getting to my blog just hasn’t happened. Oh the things I have to say…they abound. However, taking the time to stop and write a post has just fallen to the wayside.
My brain is full of posts I’d like to write, maybe I’ll get to them one day, maybe I should start a YouTube channel, or experiment with Snap Chat and then I can just put them out there when they happen. hmmm….
Life happening has revolved a lot around my health and the fact that it’s not exactly awesome at the moment. Well, it’s not that my health isn’t awesome, my body is being an A-Hole with a capital A and Hole (apparently). I’ll go in to detail, probably, later but in short it’s taking a large amount of my energy to function.
I’m seeing different modalities of physical therapy each week. Being stuck with needles. Shipped to Vancouver (3x in a week) to specialists and for testing. I’m still working out (because it’s my sanity, my love & my “happy drug”) and caring for my body, but I’ve definitely had to modify things. I’m so thankful I know how to do that.
It’s good, it’s Ok, we’re making progress though we have yet to figure out the root cause of my problem. I’m learning to cope with it. I’m learning that some of this might be my new normal, and that change happens whether we want it to or not.
On top of that we’re dealing with Audrey’s little body and it’s continued problems. Again, not something I’m doing to delve into at the moment but what I will say is that this kid is an inspiration and an example of how to keep going.
With life, and therapies and work and kids and all of the everything – you can see how this has slipped a little. I’m sorry everyone. I needed to focus inward a little, so I did. So I am.
Coaching is coming a long. Have I mentioned I LOVE health & fitness? Have I mentioned that THIS was my purpose? Not just helping people with programs, in fact that’s the smallest part of my purpose.
It’s the helping them find HAPPY inside of healthy, working on creating meal plans for them. Getting into the nitty gritty of their health struggles, seeing them lose tons of weight and find that they CAN do it and it WILL last because we’re working on new habits.
Man, if you were sitting here the sound of my fingers flying over the keys those last few paragraphs would probably annoy you. (Anyone else find typing an annoying sound?) I’m excited about it, passionate, and in love with it!
I want to help more people. I NEED to help more people and I’m struggling on 2 levels.
Sometimes reaching out feels hard. Not because I don’t want to help, but because I don’t want to offer help to someone who didn’t want it and then offend them. I’m working on it, and a lot of people don’t even know that I’m coaching. They have NO idea what I can do to help them. I need to put myself out there more.
The other problem?
Well, when you want to change the world. Help families (not just one member of them) get healthy, it’s a big job. I need help! I need other people who want to learn about getting healthy. People who are works in progress who want to help others they love become works in progress.
I need a team. An army. A FAMILY! of people who want to coach along side me.
Is that you?!! If it is please, please, please let me know! Reach out if you want help getting healthy, if you want to learn about coaching, if you just wanna chat about the fact that sometimes watching YouTube videos about bacon cheeseburgers feels good. Whatever, I wanna chat!
Wow, this post is disjointed and has gone in 100 different directions. But if I’m being honest, that’s kind of how my life feels. No, not kinda, it IS how my life feels.
As God and I are working through all that is happening. All that is changing I need to learn balance. I need to learn to be still (I suck at sitting) and I need to learn to put myself out there more.
So, my friends I am here. I’ll always be here. Sometimes I’ll be quiet but I’m here whenever you need me. I’m here!
What do you think should I start a YouTube channel and spew forth all that’s in my brain? What would you like to hear more from me about? Life? Fitness? Nutrition? Healthy families? Recipes?
Help a girl out and let me know what you’d like to hear/see and I’ll do my best to oblige!
