Does my story sound familiar?
Imagine this, stepping onto the scale and finally seeing a number that you haven’t seen since your teenage years. Getting into a bikini and noticing that people are looking at you, not because you're overweight but because your six-pack is showing. Looking into the mirror and seeing a confident, sexy, woman that is killing it in her career. Ladies, this was me in 2018. My body was ripped, I was crushing career goals left and right, and I was getting noticed in my community for being a super fit badass professional.
Now, you might be thinking… “Damn, skinny girl problems, I don’t even want to hear it”
But, you see ladies, though physically, I was in the best shape of my life, my mental, emotional, and spiritual health was shit.
Even though I had shredded body fat, looked lean as hell, and enjoyed the benefits of feeling like a queen in the community the constant “HUSTLE” and "always-on" mentality was killing me.
My stress levels were so high, that my health took another nosedive. I was losing a shit ton of hair on my scalp, my eyebrows were damn near gone, I was not sleeping at night because I had a hard time “shutting” off my brain. My energy was sustained only by a constant stream of caffeine which meant that I crashed hard the minute I got home from work.. I was always irritable with my kids and hubby.
And if that wasn’t enough, my digestion was shit. Literally, I would go #2 like once every 8 days which made me feel bloated, fat, and nasty. All because I wasn’t listening to my body and was diving into work instead. I was a full-blown workaholic. The “hustle” and hard work that I believed created my worthiness was killing me. I became so consumed with hitting career goals, supporting my community, feeling like a fucking queen in the corporate world that I lost sight of what was once so incredibly important to me. My marriage, my kids, and my health again! UGH WTF
Don’t worry, though, this all leads to a very happy ending.
I am NOT the woman I once was, however, the old Karissa taught me lots and I am thankful and grateful for all the shitty days (haha...or not so shitty) that I went through. Let me tell you who I am today…
Today, I am confident. I am sexy. I am strong. I inspire others. I take care of myself first. I am a badass bossbabe queen who is living her best life. I don’t want any of you to get to the place where I once was. (ashamed, defeated, depressed, negative, and settling for a mediocre life).
I want every woman to feel empowered enough to follow her heart and rock her best life ever! I want every woman who struggles with food, energy, exercise and stress to have a plan of action. Helping women shed body fat, increase muscle tone, double their energy, and feel sexy as hell is my life’s work! I am here to tell you that achieving your health and wellness goals does NOT have to be complicated, stressful, or HARD.
Ladies, I am here to tell you that change is possible. You really can have a healthy body, mindset, business, and THRIVING life. How do I know this? Because I am living freaking proof that you really can “Have it all” and babes, you deserve to feel like a badass queen, and in case nobody told you today, you are worthy and deserving of feeling good.
It’s time to raise your standards, it’s time to ShowUp, BossUp, and THRIVE! Let’s do this!
