You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress at the same time.
First, these are two very awesome Christas (Yup, I like who I am, who I was, and who I am becoming)
When I started my health journey, I used to look back at my party, aka college, days and think “what a mess”. Truth be told, I was. But I had fun. I was fun. I was happy. I was always laughing, and I was always making the most of every situation. There’s nothing wrong with that. Nothing wrong with how I was or who I was.
We often get caught up in making the perfect decisions - being the perfect daughter, perfect friend, perfect wife, perfect mother, perfect _____ (whatever). We forget how amazing the journey is and how along the way we learn to make good choices; or we make bad choices and learn to deal, and we grow.
My form of self-expression at 22 was to get pink extensions in my hair. What a rebel, lol. But it made me happy. It was at that age that I found my voice. I learned to do things that made me happy, and not worry about who was watching or who was judging.
All I wanted was to have my friends together, enjoy a few good drinks, and laugh, and dance.
10 years later that’s what I still love – though my dancing now is done at home, or in the form of a workout. My drink of choice is usually coffee, or occasionally some wine. I’m typically in bed by 10pm. And I still LOVE to laugh.
I’m just as passionate as ever. Passionate about feeling good, working hard, and living life. I get superrrrrrr excited when I talk about working out because I understand how it has transformed my life. I get excited about eating healthy because it’s not “just a diet” but a way of life.
We all see a bunch of products & companies advertised on FB. It used to bother me until I realized that these were friends recommending something that they loved and that did work. I’ve bought clothing, skincare, jewelry, and of course this is how I found out about coaching. I wanted to make extra money, but I had to find the right fit for ME. The fit that made sense for Christa then, now, and in the future. Coaching has truly been life changing for me – it’s something that I get excited about every day!
