TKN Challenger - Emily H.
How to Evolve From Your Own Enemy to Your Own Hero
Learn How Project Manager Emily H. Kicked Self Sabotaging Thoughts and Behaviors to The Curb With TKN.
What Is Your Name?
What is your occupation?
I work full-time as a project manager for a large insurance company and a kickboxing instructor part-time! I am also a full-time student.
How was your body before Trevor Kashey Nutrition?
Before Trevor Kashey Nutrition I felt as if my body, particularly my weight and muscle mass, had reached a plateau. I felt bloated and heavy the majority of the time, and I also felt extremely tired. It was apparent in photos that I was overworked and neglecting to care for myself.
How did that (state of being) make you feel?
This state of being made me feel like lesser of a human being, as if I was failing myself, my friends, family and even coworkers. It made me feel like I was stuck with nowhere to turn, and that I was on a ride that was veering off course…downhill.
What were you unable to do that you wished you could do?
I was unable to put my myself, my priorities, and loved ones first. I wanted so badly to be the best version of myself, so I could support myself and others.
During that time, how did your current state of being affect those around you?
I know I was a negative presence to those around me during that state of being. I was exhausted and frustrated and often took it out on those around me, blaming them and other outside influences. I took many relationships for granted during this time, and greatly regretted it.
How did you hear about Trevor Kashey Nutrition?
I heard about Trevor Kashey Nutrition through a friend of mine, she had taken on the 12 week kickstart challenge and had astounding results! What drew me to ask her about the program wasn’t her amazing physical results, but her growth mentally. It was beautiful to see her transformation in such a holistic way.
What were your doubts and fears before starting the program?
Money, time, and my self-sabotaging behaviors were my biggest doubts and fears. First, I can always find an excuse as to why I don’t have the money or why I shouldn’t spend on myself. Throw in the time and my self-sabotaging behaviors in the past, and I had the perfect line of excuses for why NOT to start the program.
What made you say YES anyways?
I knew my perfect line of excuses needed to end, I DID deserve to spend the money, dedicate the time, and to stop sabotaging myself. I was tired of not loving myself and seeing an enemy staring back in the mirror. I was tired of looking at a plate of food and thinking I had no control over consuming it. It was time to embrace the love I had for myself, but I needed the help to find it. That’s what made me say yes…at TKN you can always ask for help, and it will ALWAYS be given.
Where is your body/mind now?
How does that make you feel?
That makes me feel incredibly, powerful, beautiful, happy and at peace. It makes me cry actually, because I am so relieved to finally be in love with myself.
What are you able to do now that you were not able to do before?
I am able to do so much, I don’t know where to start. My relationships are the healthiest and most stable they have ever been as I have found a new appreciation for myself, my friends, family, and humanity in general. I’ve advanced my career and have far succeeded my school endeavors. I am able to put myself first in a world that demands so much of you. I am the healthiest I have ever been, and have even kicked a chronic condition (high blood pressure) straight to the curb. The list goes on.
What positive impact did that have on others around you that you might not have expected?
I am a reliable, loving, caring, and consciously present friend, sister, daughter, girlfriend, and coworker. My positive growth and energy seems to be contagious. I am just so gosh darn appreciative of those around me, that I can’t help but to want to make them feel beyond appreciated and loved.
What would you tell someone who is reading this right now and is unsure about taking the next step?
How likely are you to recommend TKN to a friend?
To infinity and beyond xoxoxox

My body and mind are in a place I never could have imagined! I LOVE the person I look at in the mirror now, I no longer see my body and mind as my enemy. Instead, I see my body and mind as a beautiful and powerful weapon. I am the healthiest I have ever been, and have even kicked a chronic condition (high blood pressure) straight to the curb.
