Back in the Day…
Unlike Ahmad I don’t “sit and wish I was a kid again”. I REALLY like where I am. I appreciate my journey, but I wouldn’t turn back the hands of time. If you’re reading my blog for the first time you should know I was an FFK (former fat kid). In the past I would RARELY share this information (kind of like how I use to play the accordion) with anyone. I use to think no one would want to train with the “Fat Girl”. Duh, so stupid how we can talk ourself into shame. Now, after sharing, I’ve learned that my clients and students can relate to my journey and they know that I know how challenging it can be cuz I’ve been there! It’s one giant, “I FEEL YA, SISTER!” All my “secrets” are out, this is who I am and it’s this path that has gotten me to being a successful personal trainer, fitness instructor, health coach and philanthropist. My lessons in life will not end with me.
Sharing IS Caring
I say this because I really do feel like we each have a choice to be better every day, to learn something new, to share our gifts with others, we have the ability to be AWESOME. Kid President is AWESOME and watching this video (CLICK IT!) made me think…”How can I be MORE awesome?”
Well, here goes…I’m going a little deeper. I have a pic or two on the site of my FFKness, but just this past weekend my friend from college and I were checking out old photo albums and it was SHOCKING even for me to see…so I’m showing YOU!
Oh, GURL…YES IT IS!
