Welcome to my tackk blog site! I am a 44-year old Physical Education teacher. I’ve been teaching for 21 years (I can’t believe how fast the time flies). I’ve had few true passions in life: dance, fitness, and helping others discover both for themselves and achieve the goals they set out to achieve. I was in college, already majoring in Physical Education when my mother lost her battle with breast cancer in 1991. My mother was only 42 when she passed away, and even at 21, 42 seemed so within reach. It was way too young to die. So I became determined to do what was within my power to control whatever risk factors I could.
With that being said, I have been a fitness enthusiast, but far from a fitness fanatic. I have had my ups and downs with my weight, and my own personal struggles with the body I see when I look in the mirror. I’ve seen women who have had children and have amazing bodies. As a woman without children, I’ve thought to myself, “If she can look like that, I have no excuse not to be in the shape I want to be.” I have owned my own women’s fitness studio where so many of the women in my classes were petite, thin body types, and found it difficult to avoid comparing my body to theirs.
In May 2013, I was feeling so bad about my body, not just on the outside, but physically on the inside. Honestly, I felt disgusting on the inside. I didn’t know why, and it was a feeling I didn’t remember experiencing before. I saw a post on Facebook about something called the Ultimate Reset. I researched it, and it sounded exactly like what I needed! I contacted the person who had posted about it, ordered it from her site, and in less than a month, I felt amazing, looked amazing, and my body was functioning the way it was suppose to. After the 21 day program, I was 12 lbs lighter, wearing jeans I hadn’t fit into in 10 years (no, I don’t know why I still had them in my closet), and weighing in at a weight I hadn’t seen in over 20 years!
Life changed for me then. I became even more determined to be in control of my health, my body, my time, and my life. And I found a new way to help others achieve their own health, fitness, and life goals as a Beachbody Coach.
