Danielle Lysak~ Stonewall, MB
Well HELLO there beautiful! Yes YOU! Welcome to the 2019 Autumn Journey. Whether this is your 1st, 4th, or 10th Journey, you are in the right place and I’m grateful and honored to be here right alongside you!
My name is Danielle (Danni), and I am 35 years old and live in the beautiful town of Stonewall, MB with my supportive honey of 8 years and our geriatric 15-year-old “puppy” Sweetpea. I work full-time in the group benefits world, and part-time as a mobile massage therapist. In my downtime (and there is some), I like to travel, craft, 5-pin bowl and spend time with friends and family.
Autumn marks the start of my 3 rd journey along the path to a healthy and balanced lifestyle. This will also be my first journey as an ambassador, which is an experience that I am incredibly excited to embark upon.
Throughout my life, I have been known as a “jack of all trades, master of none”. I was notorious for starting out strong with conviction when trying something new, but if it wasn’t coming naturally or if I encountered a road-block (most commonly my inner critic) my tendency would be to give up on myself, stop trying and back-slid on any progress I had been making to that point.
When I had found Health Role Models, it was towards the end of summer last year and I was in a rut mentally and physically – life was throwing me curveballs and I didn’t have the motivation to do anything about it. A friend of mine had posted about her excitement to register for her 3 rd journey with HRM, and her enthusiasm and energy about the program and community was contagious. After learning more from her, the HRM Facebook page and main HRM website, I knew it was where I was meant to be and so I jumped in with both feet and registered. Was I nervous? Heck yes! Was I scared that after a few weeks I was going to fizzle out and quit? You bet! But it was after braving the nerves to make my first
introduction post in the Facebook group and seeing the love and support that was coming back to me, that I knew this was it, I was going to succeed.
What helped me through my first and second journey were not just the top-notch workouts and easy to follow nutritional guidelines, but the COMMUNITY! I became exposed to a most beautiful, inspiring Tribe full of strong, empowering, supportive and motivating women. Over time I noticed my mindset and confidence shift, I was becoming stronger bit by bit, and I was enjoying myself. I started to believe that I was worth it and when that happens, watch out world!
If I can give you any advice, it is to trust the process and believe that YOU ARE WORTH IT! Every step forward is a step towards life-altering change physically, mentally and emotionally and you ARE ready for it! This is your journey, and not just for these 12 weeks but beyond.
As a part of the ambassador team, I am here to cheer you on, motivate and help you with accountability so that you can unlock the best YOU there is! This community has grown so much that no matter where you are, there will be an HRM in your corner, right beside you as you figure out what your health and
wellness journey means to you.
I am soo excited to watch you grow – let’s do this!
