What Is Your Motivation? (Emotional Video)

By November 4, 2009 14 Comments

kfo033Today’s post will hit some emotional nerves with many of you.  On this blog I know I focus a lot on weight loss and looking great in a bikini (because this is what many of you ask and care about).  But I also try to balance that perspective out with the deeper more personal reasons why I believe it is so important to take care of yourself.

This video does a great job at showing you why I have such passion and satisfaction in what I do.  This is the reason why I get up at 4:45 AM everyday to continue to fulfill my calling.  Sure it is great to get a picture and letter from a mom I have worked with, on vacation wearing her bikini for the first time in 10 years, but to only focus on the surface level is only a small part of a much larger and more important picture!

I selected Trish and Maleah for this story, they are no different than any other client I meet, everyone has a story and a journey, you are about to hear theirs.  I want to thank both of them for putting themselves out there in front of the camera, sharing their stories, especially right after having done a very tough workout!  Your story will be shared with thousands and your message will help the lives of so many!


This is part 2 of a 5 part series that Kim Sveum is doing on healthy moms… Click here for part 1.

Kim also has a blog set up that she is posting on frequently about what she has been doing specifically for eating and exercise, and goes into detail about the way she feels, her challenges, and success.  I encourage you to go visit her blog and leave her a message or question.

If this video has gotten you moved and inspired, let me know guide you to the next step which is action!  If you are in the Madison area I have two great programs, Fit Fun Bootcamps and MamaTone.  Both do a great job at providing you motivation and accountability to achieve any goal you have set out for you!
