Thoughts from the CAK (Chief Ass-Kicker)
I'm CJ - a Healthy Living Warrior. I spent my teens and 20s battling body image, self esteem, and emotional eating issues, and trying to work up enough strength and courage to come out. It was a long lonely process - and wildly unsuccessful for the most part.
I tried diets - programs - books - you name it - and nothing worked... they all made sense in theory - but weren't workable for me in every day life.
In a desperate attempt to break through (and "out") - I signed on with a personal trainer - determined to get results. Results started to show - my confidence grew. I came out EVERYWHERE, in a "with sparkles" kind of way.
Things I discovered along the way:
"I" will always be my own most limiting factor
The power of coaches & community in pursuing goals
Life is happier when we are fully self expressed - and we can be fully self expressed RIGHT NOW - in whatever shape we are
Working out is a passion for me
I wanted to empower and make a difference for my community
Life can be all rainbows and unicorns!
Certified as a Personal Training Specialist and a Healthy Eating and Weight Loss Coach, I created Healthy Living Warrior from my personal journey.
