What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
Before P90X3, I ate anything I wanted, or craved, at any time. I was doing the workout part of the programs, but never followed the nutrition. I wanted to change my life of laziness, excuses, and of feeling sorry for myself. I invested in my first program with ChaLEAN Extreme and got rid of all junk food, went food shopping, and cooked for my family, and myself, for the first time in my life.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
Before starting P90X3, I had to change my mindset that working out alone will do the job. I made the determination that I needed to go back to planning my meals, cooking and eating smaller portions. P90X3 nutrition guide was great and full of ideas. I was drinking Shakeology daily as my snack and craving killer and no excuses about being starving for dinner time.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I liked that most of the workouts were for areas that I was the weakest. Almost every workout involved arms and core. Mr. Tony Horton is the man I will credit for my falling in love with Yoga.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
At the end of P90X3 I was leaner and my “kangaroo pouch” was so flat I could not believe it. I am proud of finishing my 90 days and not giving up.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
It is always good when I cook my own food. In the past, I have neglected to and let others decide what I ate. Going back to following recipes that come in the Nutrition guide, or just sharing recipes from my fellow Clean Eating Challengers, really helped. This time I added more vegetables than ever before and I am still doing it. Overall, participating in my first Beachbody Challenge was a wake up call for me in understanding that nutrition, planning your meals, cooking, and drinking Shakeology is what I need to have in my life forever.
