Here is my story about appearing on TV in July 2016. I was contacted by the TV producers because of the personal challenge to get #redfaced everyday (#365redfaces) that I was posting on my Instagram page.
Every day I am working towards being able to help more people through my enthusiasm and zest for life that I share on social media!
Here is a timeline of how I got to the TV appearance!
#365RedFaces – July 2016
In July 2016, I was fortunate enough to be flown to Sydney to appear on Today Extra!
It was an incredible experience and I am so grateful for all of the support I received from my friends & family in the lead up to this incredible experience!
To keep accountable and stick to my new year’s resolution in 2016, I decided to be brave and share my weight loss journey on Social Media. I chose Instagram as I didn’t have many followers and it was more focused around a picture rather than words.
I not only completed the 365days but continued by taking a photo every day for more than 600 days! I didn’t post them everyday, but I definitely did the work-out and took the daily #redface selfie. Up until August 2018 I still worked out every single day, but admittedly I also had a couple of days off in May 2018, when I was in Florida, USA.
I love how I feel when I remain active every single day, and I love how I am finally balanced with my food intake, and most importantly: happy with my body as it is, because of what it can do over what it looks like. I love getting stronger and focusing on this instead of what the scales say.
The Toowoomba Chronicle picked up my story and started checking up on me and how I was going. This started a social media frenzy in 2016:
Not long after, The Warwick Daily News, and the Daily Mail Australia shared my story to their readers.
I now know of people who are choosing to take action to better themselves because of my story.
This is the best result anyone could ask for!
I want to do more and help more people achieve their goals and dreams too!
Everyone is on their own journey. Why don’t you start you own journey today and join my #21redfaces challenge?
I am doing something for ME. What are you doing for YOU?
Fast forward to the 1st August in 2018,
I launched a new concept that has helped me, and I believe will help anyone and everyone around the world to live their best lives by working on ‘being better’.
I originally called my ‘concept’ PROJECT REDFACE or PRF for short. The mission of Project RedFace was to promote the 5 RF’s – my core values, into a weight-loss program that does more than just help people lose weight, it guides them to actually reach their goals!
The 5 RF’s are:
RF1: Red Faces
RF2: Real Food
RF3: Respect For Self
RF4: Respect For Others
RF5: Responsibility For My Actions
I announced my new program & the #6weekfix challenge on my Facebook page & Instagram, and soon I had filled the 10 places for my first program which started on the 6th August. 2 successful rounds later, helping 10 people at a time, I was ready to expand further and start helping MORE people to reach their goals!
The 5 RF’s stick around, but ‘Project RedFace’ changes to ‘Be Super’ at the End of November, 2018.
BE SUPER – November 2018
‘Be Super’ because my initials are BS, and Be Super is the PERFECT name for a life changing program, and my Kinesiology session said so as well!
(Side note: I attended a Kinesiology session and the name Be Super came up!! This session was with a fabulous lady named Julie Reardon! (Check her out here: www.juliereardon.com.au ) I knew this name was right as soon as it was said as I got goosebumps! I’ve been learning that I need to remember that I am what I am promoting. It was like I was subconsciously holding on to the word ‘RedFace’ because it is the reason I am sitting here, but I also need to remember that I created this. I’ve accepted that Red Faces will always be here and a part of me & it is my number one core value too!)
It all began with a RedFace, and with the BE SUPER program, my goal is to spread the word of the 5 RF’s with RedFaces leading the way!
My dad, Russell has always drilled into me the importance about the 3 R’s…. this is where I had that ‘lightbulb’ moment whilst writing my 6 week challenge (This one has also had some name changes! From a 12 week program called 84 red faces, to a 6 week program called #42Redfaces which is now called the #6weekfix! hahaha!) I already had 2 values: RedFaces and Real Food and I also have always had Dad’s 3 R’s drilled into me growing up, and especially in my adult life! It wasn’t until I realised that dad’s 3 R’s were actualy 3 RF’s and so were my 2 core values!!
I was like:
“Holy guacamole, I don’t believe it!!”
It all just FITS and I love it! I hope you do too!
Now we are being super and I am living my best life and sharing snippets of my life to encourage others to live their best lives too!
I wonder what the next chapter will say…
