So as most of you all know I am going to CampDoMore this summer and feel like I'm more excited about it than Christmas/Bday's/Anniversary's combined! (CampDoMore is put on by Chalene who is the instructor in all the TurboJam, TurboFIRE, ChaLEAN Extreme dvd's, or if you go to a gym she created Turbokick, HipHopHustle, and PiYo.)
Well, a few nights ago I got an email to make sure that we had ordered our team shirt for camp, (btw I am team Platinum with Jenelle leading the way!) and at the bottom it said that for 50 campers they were offering a VIP option. Now at first I was like uhhh, not really my style. I'm not really about 'special treatment', I just want to be with everyone and wonder if some people will feel left out and on and on my mind was spinning. So silly but I was like will people look at me differently if I'm a VIP? I'm really just a normal girl, don't need special treatment. Then the financial side of it was something to think about. My man wasn't home to process with. But then I thought, who knows if I will ever go to Camp again? This is a chance to get the front seats for all the lectures, workouts and share a special party for just the 50 VIP's with Chalene and Brett. This is a chance for me to say, 'Sarah, I believe that you deserve this!'.
And so I went for it. Because I want to meet her. I'm going to be a little school girl up front for all the lectures and take 100 pages of notes. If I'm going to camp I'm going to go all out, and make it a once in a lifetime experience. I've given up a lot to live in China and I feel this is also something as a treat for all that I don't get to do because of that choice.
So then I was up half the night bc I was so excited. I mean all the campers will meet her but this is guaranteed time. I couldn't stop thinking of what I would say or ask when I meet her for the first time. I mean what do you say to someone who has changed your life? It started out with TurboJam being the first workouts I ever enjoyed, then moved into FIRE and Extreme. It's opened my world to a huge new group of friends and a coaching opportunity that combines all of that. I've lost over 30 pounds. As I have gotten healthier it has pushed me to be a better wife and mom. Then you add in the respect I have for her as a woman, mom, wife, and business woman and I'm so grateful to be going. She's the whole package friends! (If you want to get a taste of her (not to do with workouts) you can do her 30 Day Challenge to organize and set your priorities for your life. It's totally free at 30daypush.com
So needless to say I am one happy camper today and I pushed a little harder when I did FIRE. Before all this I was content just to be in the back of class at camp. But now I will be up in the front- with all those 'crazy in shape women', and I will continue my journey to believe that I deserve to be there! (I know I deserve it as a person, just still believe that I am fit enough!)
I am leading my life rather than just letting it happen and this is just one small way that it is manifesting.
(And ps my man was totally supportive. When he got home I was like I did something…he smiled and was waiting for the spill of it all. So I told him and he thought it was an awesome opportunity and reminded me that I would totally make it work for him to do something like that so be happy that I get to do it for once!)
