Jen Walsh ~ Smithers, BC
Wow! I’m beyond excited and honoured to be joining the ambassador team for Autumn 2019! My name is Jen and this will be my 9 th HRM journey, 1 st as an ambassador. Get ready for a journey of self discovery, inner growth, physical development and learning how to ignite that inner flame!
I am 38 yrs old, live in Northern BC in the Village of Telkwa (just outside of Smithers). I am a mom to two beautiful daughters aged 8 and 10, and a wife to an awesomely supportive husband. I work as an LPN in long term care with people who have dementia.
LIFE IS BUSY! HRM has taught me a lot about balance, and how it doesn’t have to be perfect or all or nothing. Some weeks will be incredibly strong and organized, and some might not be. Instead of aiming for perfection aim for a healthy sustainable lifestyle. Before HRM I asked myself “ how could I possibly fit
5 days of exercise and meal planning into an already busy schedule?” With HRM my brain asks me “how can I possibly function without it?” I have learned time and time again that taking care of yourself is not selfish, it’s necessity and when you do take care of yourself you only have more to give others.
Through HRM I have discovered the strength, confidence and courage to pursue new passions. Running is an ultimate favourite, competing in my 1 st half marathon last October. Trail running and yoga are also newly discovered passions.
The encouragement and support you will find in this community is unreal. You will find yourself craving these workouts. You will be pushed by other women, not in a competitive way, but rather an inspirational way, to become the best version of you!
So take a chance, discover how wildly capable you are, and light that inner flame!
