Hey, it’s Jess.
Today I want to share my embarrassing story of why my diet stopped me from Living Lean.
Promise not to laugh at me…MmmmKay? 😉
I feel so blessed to be able to help inspire people from all over the world to lead healthier, fitter, and more energetic lives.
Here’s a quick story about my embarrassing journey to Live Lean.
Around age 9 or 10 I started getting a little puffy due to too much TV watching, being lazy, and too many sugary snacks.
I was very lucky to have an athletic influence from my family, but I did not become interested in athletics until age 15, when I joined high school sports.
The influence from my coaches, who believed in me, was a huge life-changer and dramatically influenced the rest of my path.
I’ve had many coaches since then, and strongly believe in the power of influence from a trusted source.
I wanted information and inspiration from those that live, breath, and walk the talk.
I became a fitness and physique competitor around age 22, in an attempt to create a sense of motivation that I didn’t quite have internally.
Knowing I was getting on stage in a bikini helped me work my buns off, literally, and get into the best shape of my life.
But even then, I struggled to maintain that shape.
It seemed everyone around me was saying that an off-season was necessary, and that you just couldn’t maintain abs all year round.
This meant being off from eating healthy, off from working out, and also feeling off from being our best.
I knew there had to be another way, that included a more sustainable path to optimal fitness and holistic well being.
Meeting Brad was sheer divine intervention because finally I connected with someone who did believe it was possible to be at peak condition, physically, mentally and emotionally 365 days a year.
I now know it is my duty to inspire and motivate others, who may not yet believe in themselves, or believe in the reality of feeling and looking great, all the time.
I’m thrilled to help guide the Live Lean Nation as we change the world and become healthy, strong, and lean together.
To stay motivated, it takes a village.
Now with Team Live Lean and the Live Lean Nation, we have created that sense of community that keeps everybody going strong.
Live Lean 365 baby!
I played sports in high school which kept me really fit, but then after graduating I slowly felt my fitness slip away.
When I first started getting serious about fitness again, I approached it in all the wrong ways.
I became a cardio queen, focusing only on the amount of calories being burned, rather than the overall picture or toning my muscles.
Finally after many frustrating attempts at bulking and cutting, on-season & off-season, losing weight and then gaining it back, I finally figured out the trick!
This included learning how to cook healthy and delicious meals, comprised of mainly natural whole foods.
I also learned how to train more effectively, with the right style of workouts, to maintain the physique I always wanted: slim, sculpted and strong.
