How I changed my confidence, body, life (mom of 4)

Guest blog post by elementary school teacher and mother of 4 Kristen Zammit…

It was Saturday, June 25 at 11:45 in the morning and I was still in bed. I was feeling horrible.

It’s all a vicious cycle-I was feeling bad about how I looked how I felt (irritable, tired, cranky)…

And then I felt bad for feeling bad about myself.

I was on Facebook and LiveFit popped up as something that I might be interested in or something like that and so I clicked on it.

I creeped for a while and saw a link that said “This is the number one supplement that you need”… And I thought “perfect here’s my out because there is no ‘one’ supplement”—see I knew that there was more than a quick fix, I was just never really willing to do what it took…

There was always a big part missing that I never knew was missing but I’ll get into that later.

I clicked the link, ready for my out and the answer was…drumroll please…water! And my thought was “oh dang”.

Look at all that MUSCLE!!!

So I signed up and I showed up. I pulled into a dark parking lot at 5:40 in the morning I looked over at the other car beside me and saw Elton. Now, Elton is a big dude and I was thinking what have I gotten myself into!!!

But I got out of the car and I went inside.

This was the first time in my life that I didn’t start something new with someone else-there was no crutch there was no back up-it was just me and I was doing it for ME and that alone has probably been one of the biggest factors in this whole transformation.

I have been married for 23 years this year, I have four boys that play multiple sports, and are in productions. Doing for them has always come first, but I had come to a point when I realized it is okay to do for me too.

I was NOT going to feel guilty for occasionally making them wait for me for a workout because I promise guilt wasn’t anywhere close to their thoughts during their countless hours of practices, games, rehearsals, and productions!

And THAT’S OKAY! Families do for each other-really whether they like it or not.

Once I started @6am bootcamp I was hooked!

The trainers have always been there to encourage, push, modify …and ignore when I may get cranky.

My goal was to do every 6am offered….well by the second week I wanted more…so I added Friday afternoons

…And Saturday mornings

…And Guns Like Rich.

I’ll never forget, that second week I went on a Friday afternoon and there were sit-ups involved. Or at least they were supposed to be sit-ups involved…I was trying to sit-up, I gave it all that I had and then Rich came behind me and actually pushed me up so that I could do a sit-up.

One would think I would’ve felt grateful but no, I was mortified, mortified that someone had to help me up with the sit that became my first goal. (Grateful now though!)

Now, I do sit ups with the 25 pound plates or whatever else is thrown at me and it probably means more than any other exercise that I can do. This is why I push myself so hard, because when you are able to something you couldn’t, it is AMAZING.

It is ALL about being a STRONGER version if myself…not skinnier, not lighter, STRONGER!

I always hated mornings, I love to sleep, NEVER would I ever imagine I would be somewhere be 6am everyday!

Another pivotal moment for me way the day I realized I wouldn’t ever break my word to someone when I said I would do something.

I deserved just as much respect and dedication that I gave to anyone else. So I went to every 6am workout for a year!!!

That was huge for me, I’m not sure I’ve ever done anything for a year!

The thing I never realized I needed was the camaraderie. The people here are here for the same reason and are always supporting and pushing one another. I love it, I feel other’s success as if it’s my own!

It’s important to have people that understand…

There will be times when those closest to you may not realize they aren’t being supportive (or, maybe the do🤷🏼‍♀️) but it helps when the positive voices drown out the negative ones.

I love my 6am Sweatheads! I couldn’t imagine starting my day any other way!

I’m away on vacation currently….Missing my “more than a Gym.”
