A week ago today, I made a decision and commitment to myself to improve my health and fitness. Not just for a month or two, but for as long as I physically can.
For as long as I can remember I have always been self-conscious about my weight and with that came a lot of fad diets, missed meals, and hours at the gym. For what? 10 maybe 15 lbs. But what happened after spring break trips, summer vacations,my wedding, etc was all over? I gained all that weight back, plus some. Even after that temporary weight loss, was I happy with the way I looked or how I felt? No!
Over 2 years ago,I was introduced to Beachbody's 21 Day Fix Extreme, and for you not familiar with Beachbody, they are the same creators as P90X & Insanity. Instead of doing a 60 & 90 day program, I decided to try this 21 day program. I was a little skeptical, but what did I have to lose? I gained almost 10 lbs since my wedding, so even if I lost 5 I would be happy.
After my first round of 21DFX I lost over 11 inches and 8 lbs. I was stoked that I fit into my pre-wedding clothes again, but I was actually happy with how I looked! All by doing 30 minute at-home workouts, portion control and drinking my daily Shakeology.
As I started my second round, I found out I was pregnant and decided to take it easy. Since my pregnancy, I have fluctuated with my weight and just haven't found the motivation to get back into a healthy lifestyle. Sure I've worked out and "dieted" and lost weight, but it was all short term. I made a million excuses as to why I wasn't at my pre-pregnancy weight or size.
A few weeks ago I became super depressed and self-conscious. I hated looking at myself in the mirror. That same week my beachbody coach, Jessie, reached out asking if I still had any interest in coaching. It was a sign! It took me a while to pull the trigger, but when I did I knew this was the motivation I needed. I love to help people and this was the best opportunity to help myself and others at the same time!
You may be skeptical, I was, but sometimes it's worth to try. This may be YOUR time to make the change you have been looking for. #beachbodycoach #shiftshop #timetomakeachange
