This isn’t something I like to talk about very much, but I think it’s important for some people to hear. I have struggled with depression on and off for my whole life. Becoming a single mom certainly did not help. I am very good at showing up to school and work with a big smile and cheery attitude, but when I am home there are days when I don’t want to move. Luckily school and kids have kept me very busy, but it just isn’t a good way to live.
In March my friend told me about the 21 Day Fix and I jumped right into it and it completely changed my life. Even though I was incredibly busy with school, clinicals, work, and taking care of my kids all by myself I made the time to get in my workouts every single day; sometimes that meant coming home from clinical at 11:30pm and working out before bed, but I got it done. There is something incredibly therapeutic about taking care of yourself. The sense of pride and accomplishment you get when you see your body changing before your eyes is amazing, and the sense of purpose coaching has given me is indescribable.
I recently let myself slip back into my old bad habits of skipping workouts and, not surprisingly, I found myself having no energy to get off the couch to do anything. Today I decided to kick my butt back into gear and do another round of the 21 day fix, and after finishing my first workout I feel like a totally different person. I will be forever grateful for my coach bringing this program into my life.
