I am human. I am not perfect. I have not arrived. I am a work in progress. I am okay with all of that! www.fatgurlinside.comI am human. I am not perfect. I have not arrived. I am a work in progress. I am okay with all of that!

Being an online health and fitness coach does not mean you have to have it together all the time, thank goodness for that! To me, what it means is that I need to lead by the example of striving to improve my health and fitness more often than not. It means having a heart of encouragement to share and motivate others on their journeys, which may look very different than my own. It means putting in the work to check in with people, create posts for my groups and growing myself in different areas in order to be able to pour into others.

Why, on this white, winter morning am I telling you this? Because today was check in, measure up and weigh in time for my current group. My girls are rocking it out with some awesome results, they are motivated, they are putting in the work and I couldn't be happier or more proud! My own results from this past week... Not so great! I didn't really gain anything, I just didn't really lose anything either. I could let this discourage me or make me feel like I am 'failing' as a coach, but I quickly reminded myself of a couple of things.

I've been on this journey for over six months now, there have been ups and downs throughout but I have at least maintained to where my main goal is. I can't expect each week for the rest of my existence to lose weight or inches... Eventually I would disappear! ha

Are there areas I would like to tone up more, see more definition, increase my strength in? Of course! And in time, with hard work and perseverance I hope to get there! This just wasn't my week and I can learn from it! There are definitely seasons for things though, and for the next couple of weeks I'm entering a time of vacation, which means I may not do my typical workouts or eating plans but I will be hiking, biking, swimming, walking and exploring.

The day after I get back from my vacation though I begin the All In challenge group, and I will be ready to be all in! I have a couple of girls that are already committed to joining me and I'm super excited about what we will accomplish during our time together!

For today though I won't beat myself up, but instead will celebrate the milestones my girls have made and be excited for the part I got to play in that!
