“As Soon as You Let Yourself Love Yourself You will Fly”
Meet the Newest Sponsored Athlete for Max Muscle Sports Nutrition Colorado Springs, Kelly Dickerson Lamoreaux!

Kelly Dickerson Lamoreaux, wears a lot of hats on a daily basis. She is married to Jarom her husband and business partner, fellow dentist at Tri-Lakes Dental and Orthodontics in Monument, CO, they have four children together, three busy boys and one pretty little girl all between the ages of 7 and 2, she is both a working professional dentist and part time stay at home mom and she is NPC Fitness competitor who qualified for Nationals just last fall. Kelly also admits to being a Type A personality and a perfectionist, and had dreams to someday go to the Olympics in Equestrian and well, just has a lot going on in her life in general.
How does she do it? I asked her this question myself and she answered very quickly and confidently, by constantly trying to teach myself to focus on what is important and let go of what isn’t. Kelly is quick to admit that she is hardest on herself. Says Kelly, “there are times when my house is a mess and it drives me crazy” over the years Kelly has learned that “as soon as you let yourself love yourself you will fly” and she is practicing the art of doing just that.
As a young girl in Gardnerville, Nevada Kelly was active in soccer and dance but her true love was training with her horse and held the long time dream to someday compete as an Olympian in Equestrian but eventually college, dental school, marriage, children and a growing private practice pushed those long held dreams aside.
Kelly and Jarom moved to Colorado seven years ago and started their dental practice and family and life got really busy really quickly. As parents they welcomed 4 children into the world in just 5 ½ years and while motherhood is one of Kelly’s greatest joys the fact is that having 4 babies in a short amount of time took a serious toll on her body. After the last baby Kelly was mentally hungry to reclaim her body as her own and while she assumed she would never look the way she did prior to children she craved a healthy and fit body, one that was toned and defined not just skinny fat.
Kelly says that when she started her fitness journey just 4 months after her youngest was born “it was all about seeking a physical change but in the end the inner transformation was what it was really all about. Before I had kids I was very focused on my career, and after my children were born I was really lost. I loved my kids but between work, kids, family I still felt lost and I had a void. As a mom you throw yourself into being a mom and forget about yourself.”
Struggling to find a way to balance it all Kelly finally decided to let herself focus on some self-love. She hired trainer Cindy Newman and together in 8 weeks with a clean diet, high intensity cardio and strength training were able to trim 15 inches and reduce Kelly’s body fat percentage from 22% down to 16%. Kelly was thrilled with her progress and was excited to see the tone and definition start to return to her body. With Cindy’s guidance and encouragement Kelly soon set another goal and decided to go after a bucket list dream of competing in a fitness competition. Soon she hired Sandi Forsythe IFBB Pro and fellow mother and competitor. Sandi is a mother to 6-year-old triplets and is finishing her masters degree while competing and working full time. Sandi also is an excellent mentor and quickly helped Kelly fine-tune her training. Kelly competed in the April 2013 Fitness Universe, the October NPC GNY Natural and the November 2013 Met-rx Rock Mountain and soon she qualified for Nationals, her newest focus.
By learning to let go of some of the self imposed limitations and unnecessary guilt of motherhood Kelly is learning that a perfect house or complicated meals are not necessary and that it is ok to focus instead on active living, healthy simple food and family time.
Kelly now fits fitness into her busy life, getting up at 5:00 am for cardio and has learned hat this is also her alone time and prepares her for a happy and busy day with her children.
The journey has taught Kelly much about herself and she has learned to give herself a break and to focus on what fuels your passion in life and let some of the other stuff go. Fitness has helped her set new dreams and follow them, it has given her something else to be passionate about in addition to motherhood.
According to Kelly, the lesson she has learned on her fitness journey is “how strong I really am, I’ve learned that I am too hard on my self, I want things too be perfect in all aspects of my life and I learned I had to let some things go in order to achieve balance. I have learned that I am worth it and that it is ok to love myself.”

It is now the new year and many are looking to replace the old you with the new you. Studies have shown that Americans #1 resolution is to "LOSE WEIGHT" closely followed by "EATING HEALTHIER". It doesn't sound that hard to do, but many don't know where to turn to make this a reality.
That is where the Maxform Life Challenge comes in. It is a contest in which the person who makes the most significant life transformation can win $25,000. It is not only about changing the physical you, but also about changing the mental you. Many ask how this can be done, and the simple answer is to walk through the doors of the Max Muscle Sports Nutrition Colorado Springs store and asked for a FREE Personal Nutrition Consultation. We are staffed by Certified Fitness Nutrition Coaches (CFNC™) who will listen to you, your goals and the picture of the you that you want to become.
This is what sets Max Muscle Sports Nutrition apart. As you begin your journey to the new you - the you you want to be - we'll coach you every step of the way, we'll make sure you stay on course, educate you, and be there when there are more questions to answer.
This is what we do, and do very well. This differentiates Max Muscle. Our competitors lack the basic understanding of nutritional planning and why it is so important. They will focus on your weight while we will focus on reducing your body fat and helping you look awesome in the process.

Bucketlistblogger: Rides Again
Sometimes life is an uphill battle and you are facing a strong headwind. You feel like you are biking up the tallest of tall mountains. When this happens you grind away, forced to use your entire body to try and propel yourself forward, one painful inch at a time.
You down shift to the easiest gear you can find, and you pedal and pedal. Time almost stops. You go slower and slower as the mountains before you get steeper. You narrow your focus to just what is in front of you, you block out the distractions and ignore the sounds, the smells and the view. Life can be much like this.
Your breathing becomes burdened, suddenly it is heavier and your lungs burn. It’s not easy, not particularly fun. Usually, you just long for it to end. "Stop, please stop" you chant in your mind.
Survival requires you to try to find something ahead to focus on, a goal to try to get to. Grinding through life is tough. Powering your way up a mountain can feel impossible.
Just when you think the mountain will never end you crest. It’s time to switch gears-fast because now the game changes quickly. Gravity finally starts to work for you rather than against you all the time. Life can do this to you just as quickly as a mountain.
The mountain pulls you faster and faster down. You try to adjust and switch gears lower but the change happens faster than the gears can shift. Soon you find yourself shifting gears down like a mad man just trying to stabilize your pace. Now the pedals spin faster than you can keep up with, you throw your feet out to the side and just let go, letting the bike power itself, you finally just embrace the change and let it happen rather than trying to adjust to it.
The wind feels like a breath of fresh air filling your burning lungs like balloons. The air feels good, suddenly your senses come to life and you notice the fragrances of the forest, pine fills the air and you breathe it in deeply. Now that your lungs have stopped burning you fell like noticing your surroundings. The view is suddenly spectacular and you realize you can see for miles, a just reward for all your hard work.
Consider the ways of life and biking work in a similar way.
You rediscover the pure joy of coasting and sit back in the saddle to enjoy the ride, the simple joy of your youth coming back to you in waves.
Visions of childhood hours spent on days such as this float through your mind and your inner dare devil resurfaces eager to be set free. You remember how wickedly fun coasting downhill faster and faster can be and you can’t resist the temptation to throw caution to the wind. Ah the joys of the freedom of youth come washing over you and you shed the responsibilities of adulthood like a cloak used only in winter. Lighter you feel, faster you go, happier you are.
Oh to be able to harness this feeling if not to use it only when the burdens of life become more than you can bear!
When life switches from the good times to the bad or back again often the changes happen so quickly it leaves you breathless, your mind searching for a reason why. On the bike you don’t question the why you just follow the road and it leads you where it may, sometimes up and sometimes down. It might be better this way.
How do I know all this? Because this past summer we spent a great deal of time grinding away in life, working hard and doing what we knew had to be done no matter how hard it was or how tired we were. We also took a little time off and enjoyed some Rocky Mountain mountain biking.
Eager to put life on hold for just a little while, we silenced cell phones, put thoughts of work aside and climbed on the bikes and just began to ride.
Quickly it became apparent that this was a well over due change and that starting the adventure at the top of the trail, riding switchback after switchback down the mountain was just what we hungry souls needed. In contrast to the physical thrill of riding down a mountain it became all to apparent to me that in life we had been pedaling up our mountain for so long now that the grinding and seriously worn on our souls and coasting down the mountain is just what we needed to set ourselves free again; funny how life does that to you.
What a simple but powerful lesson. Rediscovering the simple joys of coasting and the pleasure of bike riding helped me see cleanly through the clouds how in life, as on a bike, you have to have a mix of ups and downs, a combination of hills and valleys to truely enjoy life. Too much of one or the other upsets the balance in life.
So my friend, I ask you "what's next on your list?"
