I am a mother of 4, singer/songwriter, CrossFitter, runner, and lover of Jesus and fashion.  I feel that I am unique in that, while I am a very focused and goal oriented individual, I also have a real flair for expressing myself creatively.  For every affinity I commit to, it’s important for me to pursue a high standard of excellence.  My parents instilled this high capacity performance level in me, which led me to many successes throughout life by simply drawing from sheer determination, logic, and willpower.  However, there was one area that I couldn’t get complete control of.  Confidence in my body image.  I have never been overweight by most people’s standards.  Excelling in athletics as a child, I have always enjoyed an active lifestyle. After birthing 3 children, I decided that it was time to tackle the lack of confidence I felt about myself every time I looked in the mirror.  After 8 years of devotion and commitment to fitness through running, CrossFit, and several diet and exercise programs, I found myself still feeling very frustrated at the lackluster results.  I was thin and strong, but I was still unhappy with my reflection.  I was working so hard every single day, even doing two-a-days at one point, desperately trying to shed the extra stubborn fat.  My efforts worked to an extent, and most would say I was in amazing shape, but I still wanted more for myself.  It wasn’t just about being “in shape” for me.  I wanted to feel for myself the confidence that I saw other women carry who had achieved the results that I was after.  I knew there was an element and a level that I was missing.  I turned to social media to follow inspirational women of fitness to learn whatever I could from them.  That’s when I began noticing a theme among most fitness competitors.  Macros.  Some time had passed when a friend from CrossFit told me about Macroholics.  I looked up the website and signed up right away. Since joining the Macroholics program I was finally able to lose the last 10 pounds of stubborn fat that previously wouldn’t budge.  My performance as an athlete has skyrocketed and continues to climb.  I can do things that I never thought my body would be able to do.  Self-doubt isn’t a struggle anymore because I believe in myself.  I can stand in front of a crowd of thousands and not feel overwhelmed with how I look.  Most of all, when I look in the mirror, I’m no longer frustrated.  I am happy. I am proud.  Today, I can honestly say that Macroholics has been the single most valuable tool in growing my confidence.  I feel more alive and in-tune with myself than ever before.  The journey is definitely a process, and one that I will continue because I’m worth it.  You’re worth it, too!  I have a true passion to inspire and help others achieve their goals.  I’d love to have you on my team!  Join me!
