Out of my passion for helping Mamas learn how to cultivate a happy, healthy family of their own, The Happy Healthy Mama was birthed along with Happy Healthy Mamas Community. I know how difficult it is to raise a happy, healthy family these days. It seems almost impossible at times. Mamas work full time, run the kids around everywhere they need to be, come home and cook dinner, wash the clothes, clean up after dinner, clean the house, etc. The list could go on and on! You really are a super hero, Mama!
About ten years ago I was a stay-at-home Mom of four. We home school, so it was easy to just stay in our jammies all day. I was lonely, depressed and full of anxiety all the time. Plus, I had become lethargic and couldn’t bring myself to even complete the daily tasks that should be so simple. Also, I didn’t have people I would call my friends. It was mainly because I had isolated myself and gave into my pity party!
- gained around sixty pounds in less than a year and I was just miserable!
- felt horrible about myself. I hated what I saw when I looked in the mirror.
- had no desire to have “adult time” with my husband.
- didn’t feel beautiful at all. I didn’t “hate” myself, but I certainly couldn’t say that I loved myself.
- I’m just being real here.
So, I searched and searched for different things in my life that I thought would make me happy again. I worked outside the home for a while. Of course, I tried different businesses from home. Then, I started trying weight loss products and exercise. Nothing had a lasting effect. I was still lonely and depressed.
Then, I found my true passion.
Once I realized that a lot of my issues stemmed around the weight I had gained, I knew that I had to do something about that. I found out that exercise could actually give you energy! Who knew?! I also found out that proper nutrition coupled with that exercise could give you long-lasting results AND make me feel better. I knew what program I wanted to do and I knew exactly who I wanted to buy it from. After all, I had watched her literally transform her life in less than a year with several small kiddos of her own. I knew she could help me.
It was through speaking with her that I discovered my overwhelming need for COMMUNITY in my life!
Without hesitation, I jumped ALL IN to this amazing program and the company! I became a Beachbody Coach. What was I thinking?! I’m not a nutritionist. I’m not a certified trainer. I don’t even know anything about those things at this point in my life. Great! I didn’t have to. I just had to have the passion for helping others discover what I would. And, that I already had within me!
Almost instantly I was feeling better.
- was part of a community that I craved so much!
- became part of a family of women who, like myself, were once lonely, depressed and full of anxiety.
- started learning how to develop myself personally, how to properly nourish my body for amazing results and how to share that with my family so that we can enjoy a happy, healthy life together for a long time.
And, the icing on the cake was that I get to spend my days teaching other people how to do exactly what I have! Nothing compares to showing others that they are worthy and loved! It feels great to have energy and excitement for your days and have a sense of accomplishment at the end of every single day.
It’s about so much more than losing weight or eating healthy! I’m so very excited for you!! You’re here. It’s time to take that first step to a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle.
