In 2012 I was in the best shape of my life. I was an Ironman triathlete. I worked out 3 times per day. I was dedicated to my trainers eating plan.
Then Ben and I got pregnant with Joe. We were so excited. And I got so sick! 55 pounds later…
After I had my son I was the biggest I had ever been in my life. And after years of being Miss-Super-Fit, I was depressed and angry. I would not cut myself any slack. I tried to jump back into my old routine. But with a baby that was just impossible. Every time I missed a workout I would beat myself up. Not to mention the money I was wasting on my trainer and pool membership.
Then I saw a high-school friend post about a 21 Day Fix challenge group. I thought I might as well try it. I was NOT so sure about “those shakes”. And I wasn’t so sure I wanted another “cheesy workout DVD set.” But I felt like the challenge group was going to give me the support and comradary I was missing so much from my triathlete and swimming friends. And it did! And you know what?! Those workouts are NOT cheesy. They reminded me a lot of the workouts I got from my trainer.
And I slowly chipped away at the weight. I did a few back to back 21 Day Fix Challenge groups. These challenge groups were great because they were encouraging to eat clean and held you accountable to get your workout in. With each challenge group, my diet got cleaner, and I got leaner.
Then I tried 21 Day Fix Extreme. And that. Was. Hard! And I kept slowly chipping away at the weight. Check out my results:
These programs work! They are only 30 minutes so you can squeeze them into your day. You can throw them in your suitcase with a band if you travel for work like I do. The portion control containers are easy – after a while you know your portion sizes. And if you decide to get the shakeology, well it is DELICIOUS! And, so far, Shakeology is the only protein powder I’ve tried in all my years of training that doesn’t give me bathroom issues. And it is more complete nutrition then the powers I have used in the past.
Now I’m working on Hammer and Chisel. Want to join me?
DO YOU have 30 minutes a day? I would love to be your coach! Yes, when you buy the challenge pack, DVD set, or shakeology through a Beachbody coach you get the support of your coach…forever!
