Making an Impact on Another Person’s Life has NO Age Limit!

When it comes to success, age shouldn’t be a limiting factor, but unfortunately a lot of people think it is. So much friends that it holds people back from starting a new routine or pursuing their dreams.

Did anyone ever tell you that “age is just a number” – well it’s true! Mindset plays a vital role and developing the mind should be a daily habit similar to brushing your teeth. Look at your number as an advantage versus a detriment to your success. Your struggle can become your biggest asset in life. It will allow you to relate and connect with people on a much deeper level because you’ve been in their shoes and came out the other side, stronger and more powerful than ever before.

At age 50, Mitzi has proved to herself that she can be the most fit in her life and use the resources she has learned to help other women especially those who have loved ones in the military.

Please welcome Mitzi to Team Heart & Soul!

Are You Someone Who Scrolls Social Media & Wishes You Could Make a Similar Impact Through Your Job?

So many hold back because they are just unsure if taking the unconventional job is too risky. The thoughts of “can this even work for me” and the “what ifs” lead them paralyzed in fear so they simply watch from the sidelines.

When I started this unconventional job – I started because it SAVED my life. It helped me gain back my identity that I had lost being a wife, mom, and auditor for a Big 4 company. I knew that I wanted to make an impact on others and share that tools/resources that I was using every day in my life with those around me. I saw the value and I saw that other women needed SAVED too.

I wasn’t sure where this unconventional job would take me, but I BELIEVED IN IT. I knew that nothing but positivity could come from it. I was already helping those women in my life – so why not get paid when I make an IMPACT.

I took a leap 3 years ago and from there I’m incredibly proud of the team that I’m building.

Giving the Past a Brighter Future!

***PLEASE allow me to share part of MY STORY with you!***

I lost count of the seasons where there was a battle in my mind of lack of self-worth and falling short. I’m one of those people who are extremely good at listening and turning the focus on others – so that the broken parts of me would more easily stay hidden from those around me. I never wanted my “problems” to burden others. My quiet personality in a room filled with people often was mistaken for trying to be controlling or not wanting to give people the time of day. Both of which are far from the truth. I lost myself – what makes me unique in this world – in an effort to please others and meet their expectations. Have you ever felt this way to friend?

The late nights and long drives coming home from my public accounting job allowed downtime for my mind to wonder even more.

What if I didn’t take the left hand turn to my road and rather drive straight into the embankment? Would I survive without injury or would portions of my body be paralyzed? What quality of life would come if I did survive the accident?

What about the large hole I would leave in my parent’s heart? Would I forever leave my parent’s with a lifetime of them blaming themselves?

What about my newborn daughter? I would miss seeing her experience life with my own eyes?

What about my soul mate? My best friend who I didn’t share my dark thoughts with because I didn’t want to burden him – he would never again feel the warmth from my hugs or the softness of my lips when I kissed his cheek. He would never hear me say “I Love You and then me respond again with I Love You MORE.”

You see – mental health – isn’t something to suffer from alone. Creating the awareness is part of MY STORY to show others that they can SAVE themselves. I’m on a mission to help one person at a time because I believe that each of us has the power to take back control. I’m living proof friends that you can transform your choices and perspective towards whatever you may encounter in YOUR story!

You see – in January 2015 – I took responsibility for my dark thoughts. I chose to be a warrior and work through whatever was thrown my way with courage, love, positivity, and soul. I allowed myself to wholeheartedly jump into a $140 investment in myself that I strongly believe the tools and people I became surrounded with is what opened the doors for me to continue to SAVE myself especially when doubt tries to creep in and the whispers of you’re not good enough.

This opportunity opened the door for me to a community of vulnerable women most like me from all different backgrounds. I have been able to cultivate more in my own life while at the same time enriching the lives of those around me by sharing the same resources that have helped me get back up on my feet – to discover the person that GOD had meant for me to be all along. I just had to listen and be receptive of the helping hands. I have been brought closer to my purpose because of this opportunity. Hear’s a secret – don’t wait to be perfect to move forward. There is no such thing as perfect and every trial in your lifetime has a message – you just have to be willing to listen and grow.

Trust in me.
Trust in yourself.
You truly can do HARD things friend.

I’m looking for those women who feel broken or who are working on regaining their own identity again.

I am accepting applications for 5 women – who are ready to take on this opportunity to take control of their own life. I’m wanting those women who are:
👉 willing to be VULNERABLE
👉 receptive of help – TEACHABLE
👉 willing to show some GRIT when necessary
👉 going to continue to adapt along the way and get back up stronger each time!

***Someday is TODAY – not tomorrow – to take steps towards SAVING yourself.***

Baking Christmas Cookies - Vulnerability Post

I share this picture of my family baking Christmas cookies – on the left side you can see my faded image…it reminds me of what I would have missed if I had allowed myself to become a faded memory.

You too can be a WARRIOR with me! Please consider sharing – I take being an online lifestyle coach extremely serious and I know that we all know someone who could use help gaining control of their life – gain back their own identity. I know as a mom of 2, learning to take the time for me has been a process to learn and it started in 2015. The ability to not lose myself in daily life has become a gift that I’m helping others embrace in their own life. Progress not perfection my friend; be kind to yourself as your welcome imperfections and receive support from a community of real – women – who are cultivating your growth!

Upon Missing One Day, You Quit the Whole Endeavor

So many people put the emphasis on the START. In my 3 years of being a Lifestyle Coach – I will share with you that it isn’t the START where people get stuck. It is actually the two weeks after the start and ultimately the FINISH.

I’m sure you can relate to one of the following:

  • I fell behind and couldn’t get back on track.
  • Life got in the way and my plans got derailed.
  • I went on vacation and couldn’t get out of vacation mode.
  • Work is really busy right now and I don’t have time.
  • I overindulged on sweets and ruined my who diet.

When people get too busy, have a meeting, have a baby, get married, experience a loss of a loved one, take vacation, or even travel for a business trip without their “normal” routine – they quit the whole endeavor that they so desperately needed to begin with – you know – the circumstances leading up to you starting a health and wellness reboot!

If you are stuck on “perfect” being the only standard rather than “progress” than the reality is you won’t even take the first step! These are the people whose voice in their head screams “What is the use?” and guess what you don’t try because you believe that you can’t fail if you don’t try. I’m here as a Lifestyle Coach to be real with you. The honest truth is that you WILL FAIL. You will FAIL maybe right from the start and that’s OK friend!

Why would I encourage you to embrace your imperfections and believe in progress? You must develop tolerance for imperfections in order to change to be a consistent finisher. Friend – you are a chronic starter if you quit the moment you can’t be perfect. So why not move forward with your goals imperfectly. You must try again and again when you “think you have failed” at your goals. The reality is that if you quit enough times, quitting is no longer just a possibility when you start a new goal, it’s your identity, and that feels terrible. The uncompleted goals will forever echo in your mind. Your inability to let something go, isn’t just a feeling – it’s a never forgotten loop you did not close. I want you to know that you are not alone in your feelings. It’s natural to have a goal and put the action plan in place and then have them interrupted by life. Please know that you are not alone – this is not unique to only you!

Did you know that Team Beachbody assigns a FREE LIFESTYLE COACH to every single person who purchases their product? Yes! In fact, some of you (like myself) have purchased P90X, opened the box, looked at the length of the workouts, attempted 1 or 2, and then let the DVDs cover themselves in dust. Now a decade later and I’m doing the same length of time workouts as P90X with no issue. Crazy how perspective CAN change friends!

This journey will be painful and uncomfortable at times, but if you lean in and learn to stand this minor discomfort (associate it with growth), you will be able to power past the day after perfect. You will be able to stay committed and you will be able to keep showing up for yourself. Most importantly friend, you will be able to FINISH one goal and move on to the next. You will be able to FINISH one workout and move on to the next! Little by little PROGRESS amounts to A LOT and the confidence you will have built is something that only you can allow to be taken away! You set your own worth – no one will raise that bar for you! I believe that all of us have the potential to FINISH. It’s time to lean in to the process and allow me to help you set S.M.A.R.T. goals that are specific, measureable, attainable, realistic, and timely. Remember you deserve to be YOUR OWN priority.
