Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I started 22 Minute Hard Corps after I took a month off of 21 Day Fix, INSANITY, and a month off of Shakeology. I felt heavy and definitely not ready for shorts and tank top weather.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
Before I was pregnant, I worked really hard to maintain an athletic physique. During pregnancy, I overindulged in fatty foods and gained 52 lbs. in the nine months. The fact that I had a C-section worried me that I would never get back to my pre-pregnancy weight and size. Considering that I am considered a bit “old” to be a first-time mom, I hope that I will have the energy to keep up with my son, from running after him as a toddler to playing sports with him when he’s a bit older. The only thing to ensure that I do is to be in the best shape that I can.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
While pregnant, I completely lost control of what and how much I ate. Portion control went out the window. And as a new mom, I sometimes didn’t pay much attention to what and how much I was eating. Either I was only eating one meal a day or sometimes snacking all day. Forget about going to the gym, but half an hour workout at home was doable!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I liked that it really helped with portion control, and that I’m actually eating more with this program. The 22-minute workouts are so convenient when you have a baby at home. I loved how Tony Horton whipped me into shape in so little time. Before my pregnancy, I used to spend one to one-and-a-half hours at the gym every day, but now I realize that you really don’t need one hour to get a great workout.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I gained my cardio and strength back, managed to lose most of my belly pouch, and can proudly wear shorts!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I am definitely more happy and confident in my body!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
The motivation of the other members and of my Coach was very helpful. I had no choice but to do workouts every day and follow the meal plan.
