Today we get to hear from my girl Jamie! Jamie has been a part of Hotmess Fitness for a long time!
First let me just say that I Love to workout, now I have not always been this way. As a teenager I hated to do any kind of exercise it was pure torture.
I learned to love it as I got older and started having my kiddos. (cheap Therapy) I have always struggled with my weight and my body image. When I found out about
Hotmess I was at a point in my life that I was board with what I was doing at the Gym, not seeing any changes on the outside, and beating myself up everyday on the inside.
My friend Adrienne had done a session and she looked awesome so I thought why the heck not, then she told me to bring 2 pound weights and I was like “umm ok really 2 pounds”.
Really….. Well I came to my first class thinking this is going to be a walk in the park, and about half way through the class I wanted to DIE! I learned really quick you don’t try to keep up with Tia.
And in that 8 weeks I also learned what Hotmess is truly about. I started seeing changes in myself but not just on the outside, it was the way I was seeing myself on the inside. Because of the things Tia makes us say like I am beautiful , I am amazing, I am enough, I got this, and my favorite I CAN DO HARD THINGS. I started to really like the person I was seeing in the mirror and actually saying nice things to that person. And all of a sudden I felt so much lighter and happy to be me and when that happened boy did I see changes.
Hotmess has changed my life in so many ways. I look at things so differently, I am grateful for every day even if it is a bad day, I find the good in it. I am a better wife, mother, and friend. I have learned that being positive can change the way I look at my life, and that everybody you meet has a story, everybody has their crap! But at the end of the day it is how we CHOOSE! to deal with it. And that’s just it I get to CHOOSE and I choose to be a happy person, to not be mean to myself or others, to find the good in pretty much everything.
So this is my 14th session and I am a lifer, I LOVE it, it is my Drug, and it is not because of the workout, that is just a bonus. It’s the people that you will meet and learn to love and the person you see in your mirror that you will learn to love as well.
Thanks for sharing Jamie, we love you!!
