Public Accountability Post

Hey, it's time for my public accountability post since some of you might be curious visually and numerically how I'm doing in my health journey and maintenance.
The old me would hate this but now, it's no big deal. I am my size, I'm okay with it and showing others my progress is exactly the inspiration that motivated me to change my mindset, my path, and my life, once I put it All in to action!
Every Sunday, I measure inches, pounds, take photos to enter in My Challenge Tracker app (then monthly I enter it in a challenge for a free tshirt and possible cash prize!). This helps track progress in both my nutrition and Fitness. I can look back and see inches or pounds lost or gained based on different workouts, different eating plans, and life events.
Taking most of the summer off in working out was discouraging but it is encouraging to look at photos, the measurements are okay, and the pounds are okay, but pictures really help me see the changes.
I know many of you might be hesitant on taking any, but know that you are never required to share them, use them for your personal visual to see progress. Trust me it's different than a mirror. Of course your clothes feeling looser help you feel the progress too.
It is great to see the changes and I'm pleasantly surprised. I'm enjoying the new workout called shift shop. I have done a lot of modifications and will be posting videos on what those are.
Jeans are fitting better and just in time for fall!
Message or post as you feel comfortable to ask questions or share with me. How have you done since January 1? Did you take the summer off too? What will be your progress in a month? Or By January? And beyond?
Let's do this! I'm here, reach out to me. It will never be a "bother". I'd love to cheer you on!

Getting to know me...

Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, standing and text

I spend my life now getting to know me more so I can grow more! It' so rewarding!

I'd like for you to know me also so you're comfortable to talk to me, say hi, share your victories and struggles too! We're in this together and more alike than you know!

Welcome to my life where it has been focused on helping myself and others in Nutrition, Fitness, and Self Care since 2012. These are key to living your days as best as you can! It's easier to do with unconditional support to increase your long term success. 

It's my purpose to educate and support others for Healthy Habits Living through sharing resources! You'll also be inspired to dream big and start living a much more fulfilling life, now.

I'm a happy wife, mother mom of 4, running 2 businesses while personally maintaining healthy habits after an amazing Personal Health Overhaul from Oct 2011 to Sept 2013. After changing my eating lifestyle through "Ingredient Hacking", it was amazing to experience losing 5 jean sizes, 2 ring sizes and more. Now it's great to have energy and keep up with the kids (home schooling & travel), the house, the nonprofit ministry, and my wellness business. It cannot be done unless I'm focused on my personal responsibility for healthy habits living daily.

See it wasn't always this great for me. After suffering with PCOS for decades (including infertility and miscarriage), stress induced high blood pressure, other TMI symptoms/issues (I'll spare you), I found myself tired, achy, and weighing my heaviest after the birth of our fourth child at 38 years old, I thought I was eating healthy and active, but I was so wrong and not in the best shape to keep up with my roles/responsibilities.

There are too many myth health foods, 'diets' that are not custom enough for each of our unique needs, and workouts that are not realistic for all body types, skills, and abilities. Through my personal experience, story, and continued success, I can help you with a plan unique to you.

It is truly mind-blowing that my passion for personal health and fitness would lead me to helping countless others in a home-based business. I am dedicated not only to helping others design their health journey (unique and realistic), but also helping them design their life with this amazing opportunity!

I'm looking forward to connecting with you here on my general page or ask to join my free support group or the details of my next challenge group! Monthly, I also share the opportunity for your own home-based business. So look in my EVENTS tab to attend the next one.

Message me to get your wellness journey started, restarted, or with support so you reach your success your way in your time.

Your healthy witness,
Jackie

Monthly Schedule, do you have one?

It's great to get into a routine! It's great to have a goal, to decide how to reach the goal, and to get there with you acting on that Plan!

In December 2016, I made a plan. Not just one for our family and what we will do for school, home, and extra curricular, but a plan for my health and while I am doing it, to share that plan with others.

I just took a piece of paper and wrote out the months. I mapped out what I wanted to do. I wanted a Free Group, a Challenge Group, and a time to share an opportunity to do what I do, coach others with the potential of side or full time income (this is based on your efforts, skills, and dedication, there is no guarantee of income).

You may or may not know that I offer these three things every month! (My Events Page)

First Monday Starts my FREE Group Focus:

  • For a week focus on a healthy habit
  • It's encouraged to try to focus all month
  • Anyone is invited, but currently we are all women!
  • The Free Group is on Facebook and here's our schedule on our cover photo


Second Monday Starts my Challenge Group:


  • Check out the Challenge more here.

  • You have a nutrition plan

  • You have support to encourage you

Third Monday is my Info and Q&A Session for the Coaching Opportunity:


  • If you rather just check into the Coaching Opportunity now on your own, see my Coach Page
  • It's a membership to be with others ALWAYS focused on health and happiness
  • It's a way to help others in this world
  • It's a way to potentially earn income on the side or possibly replace income.
  • It is up to you on what YOU make it, just like our health journey!
Message me at healthywitness@gmail.com for any questions you have or to get plugged into any or all of the offerings I have!

Choices, Changes, and Consistency

Life is a gift to us from God. Living is what we are to do.
Choices are all over the place until we know what we want and who we are. Growing is a lifetime endeavor and better with the right messages, people, and resources.
Thanking God for being with me every step of the way, even when I did NOT know HIM! But now, oh wow, I'm in a great place! I've always owned my decisions, good and not-so-good, LOL.
Just over 5 years ago, I chose to change my mindset on food.
Just over 2 years ago, I chose a total solution for my wellness that included fitness, food, challenge groups for wonderful accountability, and network of other like minded people for living healthy and happy.
Sharing this FB post from 2 years ago helps me CHEER that I am still here, still committed to my choice and my solution. It's working, and it's blessed me WAY more than I could imagine. I never anticipated the quality friendships that have helped me grow (Rhonda my mentor and so many more), the increased knowledge that helps me personally and professionally (gaining wisdom), and the shift in outlook, mindset, and attitude that helps living in this difficult word more fulfilling and enjoyable daily.
Thank you (whomever is reading this) for doing life with me and high-five to growing. To opening the gift of this life from God, making the best of it, and living to our fullest daily. It's a joy to be with people to encourage, motivate, and inspire each other. Let's lift each other up to still be in a good place 2 years from now! Where will you be? I encourage you to start, pick a day 1 and rip off that band-aid! Let's to this. Need lifted up? Reach out! I can help.

MY ORIGINAL POST WITH THIS PHOTO:
f you've known me (Jackie) anytime between 1995 and 2011, you know that this photo is a personal victory, and I'm still a work in progress.#lifestylechanges!

Hello All, This is NOT EASY TO DO, but I know I was inspired for years by others' stories. I've been challenged, by a peer group of others on their improved life journey, to put myself (my story) 'out there' to encourage others as well. I've been hesitant, but with recent events, I'm learning life's too short to not experience a small risk to be able to help/support/inspire others the hope of reaching their full potential no matter their resources, story, situation, etc.
While I was having kids, I left 'myself go' knowingly. During the last pregnancy in 2010, I had hope for getting to my pre kid weight, whik I was approaching my heaviest and watching biggest loser, extreme makeover weightloss edition, etc.
In 2011, a day came where I realized certain ingredients were keeping us fat, tired, allergies, colds, flu-like symptoms, and for me I suffered PCOS with stress induced/seasonal hypertension. The eating change came with a struggle and huge learning curve, but as the health & results improved (beyond expectations), there was NO going back.
A natural plateau came in 2013. I expected that, but for me the REAL challenge was to avoid backsliding and gaining any back. I lost 100 pounds and have kept 90 off for 2 years (a huge personal victory).
This year 2015, I knew I wanted to add fitness to this journey to healthier lifestyle. I joined a network of the most amazing people to keep me focused forward. I've not been perfect nor claim to be, but I do have focus and know the lifestyle to health is ever evolving.
It's been a joy for the past 3 years to privately guide and give hope to others to their journey during struggles and victories through my discreet health ministry. Where ever you are in your life’s journey, know you don’t have to do it without support. I’m here to lend an ear or encouraging voice (or can point you to resources). Support increases long term success.
Fully confessing, I’m cringing as I send this post, but pray that I can at least encourage one more person willing to change towards a healthier lifestyle at their pace, with their resources, when their season comes to do so. God bless you all.
Your Health Friend,
Jackie

Change Environment to Change You

Image may contain: flower and text

This is a great quote and the best part is knowing that "you can change". I am proof of that. It does not happen overnight. It is through knowing what you want and getting there through small changes (or big, depending on your current situation and where you want to go). 😉. In short all of this is possible because I chose to join a team two and a half years ago. Changing the people I was around catapulted my wellness Journey in ways I never imagined. The result has been continuous Improvement in my personal health, life, and being filled with joy and peace, because I chose it. We often think things are happening to us, but it's the company and environments we choose. 👍 In life, we can get on and off certain trains. The current train I'm on, I love it, it grows me and allows me to help others also live a more fulfilling life. What areas are you desiring to change? What's your environment, your mindset, and the people you're around? Where do you want to go? And which train are you going to get on to get there? Think about it Make a plan Put it in action You can change It's all a choice 😘😘😘😘
