Julie is constantly sharing her passion for fitness by working out with others and investing her time to help them. Over the last year I have witnessed her receiving great rewards from the energy she’s given others. I am so proud to have such a generous person in my life! "
~ Michelle Berger, BuffMother
Here is what Julie wrote about her experience with her own belief 4 YEARS ago:
My name is Julie and I’m a 47-year-young mother of 3 adult children. I had my first child at the age of 20 and my other two by the age of 26. I gave all I could to my children and their upbringing. I believed that I needed to put them first and I always put myself and my husband second. Then at the age of 39 something happened to me that changed the direction of my life as I knew it. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. My health became my number one goal. It was a lonely life, though, as none of my friends had this priority and they just didn’t understand the new evolving me.
While surfing the web I found www.BuffMother.com, and life changed for me. As I was reading Michelle’s introduction on “Believing” I realized that I was that mother that she was describing. I believed that if I tried to give myself that extra time in the day for ME to reach my desires that I would have been selfish. I had the belief that as you got older that you were just destined to look a certain way and age. This was a real light bulb moment. I realized that I wasted a lot of time and there was no more time to waste. I could achieve a new and improved me!
Since joining TEAM BuffMother, I finally got it. You can make changes and reach the goals that you set for yourself as long as you BELIEVE you can. I not only feel like this with my body now, but also with life in general. You can do anything you want and be anything you want. You just need to believe and you can achieve this and be a good mother, daughter, friend to others in the process. I now BELIEVE that I can do anything I set my mind to. I’ve learned to set fitness goals. I’d never really done that before. I’ve learned to set challenges for myself. I’ve been working out for many years, but with no real goals and no real diet. I now know how to fuel my workouts, how to CHALLENGE myself and receive the results that I’m looking for.
As BuffMother! always says…."Challenge=Change"…I really BELIEVE that!!
