What photo is happy? Photo on the left is #TBT, August 2011. Photo on the right was IM-CDA in 2014. 

Left photo: A great photo shoot at the gym. I was working out a TON, going to get my Masters Degree, working and studying quite a bit. Sounds like a good life...honestly, I was in a bad spot in my life, 2 miscarriages that summer, which would be 4 miscarriages total. I worked out too much, didn't eat much, drank too much. I was not happy but I looked good at 128 lb.. Right?

Right photo: Photo at the lake at Ironman-Couer d'Alene. Once again, working out a ton but getting ready for an #ironman, building my business and my brand, coaching athletes, trying to qualify for Kona and loving life. Add 10 lb. to my frame BUT I am HAPPY. 

We look at "skinny" women but we don't know what is actually going on in the inside. They may look "skinny" on the outside, look awesome, but maybe they aren't eating and possibly starving themselves to look that way. 

Don't look at people by how they look on the outside...get to know  people from the inside. Look at where their heart is. This is a true sign of happiness...

Last Thursday, July 24th, I had the privilege to give a motivational talk at lululemon athletica Quarry Market to R&D Members, who are coaches, instructors, Personal Trainers, Gym Owners, Health and Fitness People, etc. 

I explained in 2009, when I applied for my Masters program at UTSA, that my personal statement stated that I wanted to change the obesity rate in San Antonio. See for the full personal statement that I wrote in 2009. What I realized AFTER I graduated, I couldn't do it alone.

There are 1.39 million people in San Antonio. In 2013, the obesity rate went down from 31% to 29%, which is great BUT we need to do more. 29% of 1.39 million people is 403, 100 people who are still obese.

We have numerous #CrossFit gyms, personal training studios, Gym (LifeTime Fitness, Golds, etc), yoga studios, Pilates studios, Coaches (#run#triathlon,#cycle#swimming), and over 100 FREE Fitness in the Park Classes. Out of all of these places, we probably have 580 +/- trainers, coaches, instructors in San Antonio...I maybe on the low end. 

If we take 5% of that 403,100 people for every trainer out there....each trainer, coach, instructor needs to touch 35 lives per year, to help get in shape, to#educate them, to inspire them to have healthier lives, to want to live longer, to want to be around for their kids and grandkids, and to be #happy again. 

San Antonio needs us. lululemon athletica in #SATX has given us the space to create, support one another, help and inspire people in SAT. It is time to change person at a time.
