I’m such a sucker…

I cry. . . easily. . . especially when it comes to transformation. Watching people fight to change themselves or fight to improve their lives or push to complete something challenging just totally gets me. You can see me at the finish line of any race all teary eyed. This would include any race I’ve competed in myself. In fact, when I was racing regularly a few years back, I had this whole mental speech I would have to go through as I came within a mile or so of the finish line. It went something like this, “Don’t cry, you won’t be able to breath. Just keep breathing. Focus on deep breaths. Focus on the person in front of you. Catch them. Beat them. Don’t cry. Think about eating a brownie later today. Don’t cry. Oh my gosh I’m hauling ass right now. Don’t cry. Can’t wait for that brownie. Don’t cry. Keep pushing. Stop thinking. Don’t cry.” This would go on and on and eventually I would cross the finishline. Then I would cry. At every race. There is just something monumental about crossing that line. It gives me goosebumps just to sit and type about it. So, you can see how when I watch my clients and friends race, I get all caught up in their excitement. And there I am, at their finish line, crying. I’ve gotten pretty good at hiding it – hats, sunglasses, loud cheering.
So a few weeks ago a trainer friend of mine in California posted this video on his blog and there I was – crying. But in addition to my tears was so much excitement. The man in this video could be any one of my clients. Fighting day in, day out to make change. Fighting day in, day out for a better life, a happier life, a longer life. I get so excited to be a part of your lives and your transformations. I just kicked off a new round of my 6 Week Total Body Transformation. 14 more brave souls stepped up to the plate to take control of their lives and their health. I cannot wait to see where the next 6 weeks will take us. I’m sure by the end, I’ll be crying.
If you’ve been looking for inspiration for change, watch this video and watch closely. It could be you.
