Sister Success

Recently my sister, Olivia, was chosen as one of Austin's Top 10 Fittest Moms and landed the cover of Austin Fit Magazine. Last week KXAN (NBC) came to the Women's Only class at RunTex to film her along with a handful of other amazing fit mothers. This week she was asked to interview live on My FOX Austin for a segment on staying fit as a mother called "Mom to Mom." Above is the video clip.

I'm so proud of my sister and all that she has accomplished! She was always more into yoga and hiking and when she first saw me doing CrossFit she said this exact statement with enthusiasm, "I will NEVER do that, that looks horrible and there is no way I could possibly do that." 40lbs pounds lighter and muscles she had never seen later she is rocking crossfit workouts and in her own words, ADDICTED. Liv is a single mom and has her hands full with her 2 year old son, Jacob but still manages to find the time, energy and willpower to make it to class 3-4 times a week and eat healthy, and is now in the midst of opening and running her own event planning company, Liv by Design!

I'm proud of my sister for much more than her success story and body transformation though. Life has thrown her some curve balls but she has always had a positive (almost funny) attitude and makes those curve balls into blessings. I'm a big believer in "things happen for a reason" and she is living proof of this and gives me faith to not get caught up in little hiccups here and there, push through and there is always something better waiting for you on the other side. Blessings in disguise.

Congrats sister on all your past and future success! I love you!!!!
