There is a test I like to give people to help them discover just how healthy of a lifestyle they are really living. I call it the vacation test. The type of vacations you enjoy taking are often telling of the type of person you are. Do you plan and search out fun, physical activities to do, or do you prefer to sit and relax waiting only to enjoy your next meal and drink?
On our private FB page for Killer Kurves Jeanne posted a picture (see below) with the following caption. “Look at me, running on the beach! Wouldn’t have imagined this 12 weeks ago. Another goal down! Thank you to all my K2 friends!!”
Jeanne’s post really touched me because this really is what true transformation is all about! Transformation is not just about sweating it out in the gym and losing weight. Transformation is about the many joys in life you can experience as a result of losing weight – feeling physically and emotional stronger, having more energy than you ever thought possible, and really owning confidence in ALL your abilities and talents that have been present all along but were likely suppressed when you carried that extra weight.
I believe life is all about exploring and that using our earth suits (our physical bodies) is the only way we can really get around and explore. As many of us have likely discovered at some point in our lives, if our health isn’t dialed in, many other aspects of our lives suffer, too.
The very same day Jeanne posted her inspirational photo on Facebook, I received an email from a woman who joined our brand new personal training program 5 weeks ago, working with Liz, one of our amazing trainers. She sent us this message with the following picture.
“Just a note to let you know I’ve not stopped moving just because I’m on vacation. Four mile walk up Sabino Canyon (Tucson, AZ) this morning. Felt great thanks to all of your fantastic training!”
I have been especially passionate over the past year helping those who need to lose 50 lbs or more. I guess I feel like these people have so much to gain. If you are in that boat and just need a little guidance, send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org, and share with me your story and a phone number and I will do my best to personally respond to each and everyone of you. Very few things bring me as much joy as seeing someone put themselves first for the first time in a long time.
