I am like you in so many ways, but I might be different in others: I might not be of the same gender as you๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿ‘ฉ, I might not have the same stance on religion as you ๐Ÿ™Œ, my body might not fit your mold of what “fit” should look like ๐Ÿ’ช, I have a husband I love very much ๐Ÿ‘ฌ, I am a dreamer and I have huge goals, my dogs are my children ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿถ, I am a video game and cartoon nerd ๐ŸŽฎ, I am a Disney FANATIC, I wear nail polish and makeup from time to time ๐Ÿ’…, my hair is rarely a “normal style” or color ๐Ÿ’‡, I am VERY energetic and smile A LOT ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜„, and the list will go on and on… Why should any of it matter? ๐Ÿ˜Š I love you all for WHO you are and I am so grateful for those that do the same for me ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸCONFESSION TIME๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ
Ever since I received notice of the AMAZING opportunity to represent this incredible company that has literally changed my life (forever) and become a finalist for the Beachbody Challenge..I have allowed myself to overthink the entire thing. Despite losing 150+ pounds, I am still human and I still have moments of insecurities that sneak up out of nowhere. Over the years, tons of personal development, and meeting inspiring peopleโ€ฆI have grown so much but I accept the fact this will continue to be a challenge for me. In sharing my journeyโ€ฆI have to share all aspects of it because it helps me grow as a person and I hope that it gives others strength as well.๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น
So get this: the deadline is THIS Friday I almost decided yesterday to NOT submit my results to Beachbody. Silly, right?! When I started this entire journey I was NOT the type of person who would share my life, my struggles, my insecurities, my growth, my dreams/goals or anything of that nature. For a brief moment I felt so exposed..shirtless pics and all! lol When I started this I had NO idea about the Beachbody Challenge. I did it all for my own health and I felt like I was being judged for my transformation alone. I see other people that are insanely RIPPED, have huge followings and I felt like: โ€œwhat I am doing? I am not like these other people, I am SO different.โ€ ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ
Then I took a step back and realized: I am NOT like these other people, I was right. What makes me different is what makes me unique and makes it MY story. We ALL have stories to share and are so beautiful in our own ways. What have I got to lose and why WOULDNโ€™T I give it my all?? I mean, I have come this far and I have gained my health back. It isn’t about my physical transformation, or how “nice” my pics come out, but how much I have changed my life and inspire others to do the same. This is also about coming together, as a team to end the trend of obesity. I am beyond grateful and everything else, from this point on, is a bonusโ€ฆand if it allows my story to be heard, so people can realize they are NOT alone and they can do it, too: Then that would mean the world to me ๐Ÿ˜˜๐ŸŒ (at haydenbrahatcek.com)

I agree with this, however I think personality also makes you sexy and pretty as well ;)
Personality definitely cannot be airbrushed and it’s what’s inside that truly makes you BEAUTIFUL!

LOL! This is why I cannot diet again: I love food too much!
Besides; why strive for “skinny” (and starve), when you can portion the yummy things and be FIT?! ;) just saying… (at facebook.com/haydenbrahatcek)

Please tell me I’m not the only one that TRIES to dance like Michael Jackson, whenever one of his songs randomly plays ๐Ÿ˜œ well this is exactly what happened this morning, after finishing my 21 day fix cardio workout. I’m cooling down and then “beat it” comes on…instant dance party in my #homegym LOL ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐ŸŒŸ
