Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I was depressed and low energy all the time. Not only that but my body hurt all the time and in order to keep up with the demands of my work I needed to build strength. I was unhappy with the fact I was outgrowing my wardrobe too but the biggest thing is how crappy I felt all the time. I’d hurt so bad I didn’t want to get out of bed some days. The thought of working out and making my body hurt more? No way. But deep down inside I knew that it was my diet and lack of fitness in my life that was responsible for the sluggish way I felt all the time. I knew if I got moving I would start feeling better.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
When I just decided that I had to do it for myself and that nobody was going to do it for me… I decided I am in charge of my life and my health and, considering I recently lost my 61 year young father to a heart attack three weeks after he had been hospitalized for keto acidosis, I decided to love myself enough to take charge, before its too late! It’s something he didn’t get the chance to do.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
I lost my 61-year-old dad due to an unhealthy lifestyle and that really helped me to make the decision to do it. Beachbody helped by being easily accessible through a Beachbody Coach.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I love how 21 Day Fix EXTREME really helped me to tone up and “cut” in!
