Hi, my name is Jodi Smith. I live in beautiful Coeur d’Alene Idaho. I am 52 years old. I will be celebrating my 27th wedding anniversary this year. And I have two grown sons, ages 23 and 19 who I’m immensely proud of. I am a business woman. I have owned a mental health agency for over 20 years. And as you can imagine in times like these that’s a lot of fun, but I do love it. I do. I’ve been a Warrior Babe, since late summer of 2019. And I’ll tell you about that in a minute. I have always been athletic. I started at age six doing gymnastics, and at age 10 I started playing tennis competitively. At age 13 I began lifting weights and discovered that I just absolutely loved, loved lifting weights. And I remember seeing pictures of women in bodybuilding competitions and thinking I want to do that one day. So anyway, more about that in a minute as well. So I was always very athletic, always, always very muscular. I’ve lifted weights off and on since the age of 13, and I was a runner. I did a lot of distance running. I would be running upwards of 30 miles a week.
I did several half marathons and team events, had a lot of fun with that. And I started it so that I could lose weight ’cause I, I just always felt heavy. And so while I would run and I would lift weights I would do funny things with my diet. So I did, and probably in this order, I did low carb. I did vegetarian. I did low fat. I did paleo. I did keto. I tried it all, and none of it worked and I just couldn’t understand why that was. You know, I just wasn’t losing weight. And actually I was losing muscle, which I have thought, well, that’s just really odd. ‘Cause I’m lifting weights and I’m running and all of that, and I’m having a healthy diet. I just don’t get it. So anyway, I joined Warrior Babe, The Revolution at the end of the summer in 2019. And in November I joined The Blueprint because I just wanted to learn more. And then in May of 2020 I joined VIP because I just wanted to up my game a bit. And what I’ve learned through this process is the importance of macronutrients. I never understood macros. I never did. All I knew is that carbs were bad. They were horrible. Don’t eat them, avoid them at all costs. And I thought a lot of protein lots of protein, low fat, you know, that was the way to go. So anyway, through the time with Warrior Babe I’ve learned how to fuel my body, and it has been so incredibly amazing. It’s provided me with the structure that I can follow, that I actually crave and has brought me to a place where several months ago I decided that I wanted to fulfill my childhood dream of competing and, and I made the decision to compete.
I am now 10 weeks out from my first and maybe only, we’ll see, competition. But if it weren’t for Warrior Babe and the support of Nikkiey and Madeline and now Joe, my coaches, there’s no way I, I would be where I am now. I have confidence. I am 52. I don’t feel 52. I feel healthy. I feel vibrant. The structure that Warrior Babe has provided me and the education that I have been given has changed my life in so many ways. I mean, I don’t think that I would have been able to emotionally manage through this whole COVID pandemic doing what I do for a profession if I didn’t have that structure and that consistency. I do believe it has kept me sane. So I thank Warrior Babe. It has absolutely changed my life for the better. And I look forward to seeing where I can go from here. I appreciate the community so much, all the women. It’s amazing to have this whole new group of friends that I’ve never even really met. And it’s, it’s a beautiful thing. So thank you, Warrior Babe. I love you, I do.
