Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I did not feel confident and just felt frumpy and gross. I had had a baby about three months before starting, so I was adjusting to that and just getting through.4
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I knew we were done having children, and I really wanted to get in the best shape of my life and to eat more healthy.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
Before starting, I never liked working out at home, and I just ate whatever and however much I wanted. With the programs, I really came to love being at home and doing the workouts. I didn’t have to worry about what I wore or how I looked. The containers really helped me visually see how much and what foods I actually needed. Once I got into meal planning, it really got easy and helped to know what I was eating throughout the day.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I first did the 22 Minute Hard Corps. I really liked that it was just 22 minutes, and I could feel it working. After I completed that, I did 21 Day Fix EXTREME. I really came to love those workouts and followed the nutrition plan with the containers. I’m a visual person and those containers were great!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
From both programs, I lost a little over 20 lbs. I have toned up and feel good. I am proud of myself, because I fully completed both programs. With the 21 Day Fix EXTREME, I also stuck with the containers.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I have a better understanding of nutrition, and what my body needs and doesn’t need. I have taken those and implemented them into my family’s lifestyle. My outlook has changed. It really does have a lot to do with your mindset. You have to realize that you will get changes by being consistent.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
It helped me reach my goals because we were accountable to each other daily! We would talk about any struggles, share recipes, and just encourage each other.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She was there every day. We did live chats, and I would email her nightly with my plan for the next day, which really helped. I probably would not have done that on my own.
How did a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program (such as Shakeology or Beachbody Ultimate Reset) support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained? Did you see benefits to your energy, sleep, mood/mental clarity, or digestion/regularity?
I am drinking Shakeology daily, and I definitely noticed a change in my sleep!2 I would fall asleep fast and stay asleep all night. It also helped me stay regular.2
