Who is Lexy?
I am a full time radiation therapist, part time photographer, part time student and a full time momma to the sweetest 1 year old baby boy. I have always felt drawn to healthcare and love to help others. I have been in the oncology field now for 5 years. It warms my heart to know that everyday I’m closer to curing someone’s scary cancer diagnosis! I have a very close relationship with all of my patients and go above and beyond to help them have better quality of life. I have always had high confidence when it came to helping my patients but I never carried that same confidence in my daily home life. It was July of 2018 when that became very obvious to me. My husband and I had just moved into our dream home with our miracle son and were now only 10 mins from the beach. I call him a miracle because we miscarried 1 year before him and I was diagnosed with both hypothyroidism and PCOS which made it very hard to get pregnant. We tried many different medications until we found one that worked to help us have our rainbow baby. For me, this trip to the beach was the wake up call I truly needed! I immediately became upset and could not even believe he asked me to not only go to the beach but to wear a swimsuit in front of other people. After about a hour of crying in our room, it became clear to me. I had to do something. I was not mad at my husband, but at myself. What kind of example was I setting for my son? What would my son miss out on simply because mommy wasn’t comfortable in her own skin? What had I already missed out on because of this? It was that day that I said enough is enough. Put your big girl panties on and get your health back.
How did I start?
I started with a great program by Autumn Calabrese also known as 21 day fix. It was 30 mins a day/7 days a week, with two of those being recovery days. I really channeled in my nutrition. It was no more sneaking to the back to grab a donut at work but instead having some grapes. The best part is I never felt deprived and still don’t. I could see the weight falling off in just a few short weeks. I’ve had stalls, breakdowns and moments where I felt like I couldn’t do it but I continued to push through.
Who am I now?
Who am I now you might ask? I’m lexy, fitness enthusiast! I have lost 73 lbs in 7 months and have completely transformed my life with the help of my amazing team! Oh and my son?, He is thriving and now has a momma that takes him to so many outdoor activities! I got a promotion at work and am excelling in all aspects of my life. I have energy,better skin,no more joint pain,perfect blood pressure,no more thyroid problems and now am a better momma than I could have ever imagined. This program not only transformed me physically but has done so much for my mental state as well. I truly believe in what this program can do for you which is why I decided to join as a coach. Being a coach for beachbody has brought a new joy to my life that I didn’t know was missing. I now not only am helping myself, but I’m helping other women all over the world transform their lives too.
