Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I just completed the Ultimate Reset. It was my first time doing it. Before I started, I had two coffees a day and also was diagnosed with mono in February. I was tired all the time, and I knew I needed to get out of that cycle. The Ultimate Reset has been in my mind since last year, but I needed the perfect time to do it. This month was perfect timing. So I started right after Easter and went all in. I was scared, but I was ready.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I have been with Beachbody for a while now, and Hammer and Chisel was a great program, but my eating wasn’t 100%. So I had to get food under control first and then jump back into my workouts. I knew that the Ultimate Reset would reset my body internally and I could get back in the game of working out and get the results I want.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
Coffee! I had two a day, and they were a ritual. If I didn’t have them, I was so tired. It was all in my head, but the head wins. So that was my biggest challenge. Cooking was intensive but very good. I learned so much about my own kitchen and how to cook without meat. I was tired of eating the same meat over and over. We are big fans of lean meat when working out, but the same thing over and over gets tiring. Now I have a brand new way of eating, and I love tempeh!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The meal plan is outstanding! I love everything except two meals! So in 21 days, that’s a pretty good outcome. The eating plan is in my kitchen, and we are going to keep using it. We love it that much.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
Seeing my abs! I have ab definition… this is unreal. I am so so so happy. I am a mom of two, and I am showing abs. Big big big deal for me. I lost 6.5 inches from day one, so very good, and a total of 10.5 pounds from day one of the Ultimate Reset. It was needed, and I am extremely happy with the overall results.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I can cook without meat. I can feed my body with very healthy fat. I can eat very tasty food. I don’t need a drive-thru. What I need is a recipe and ingredients, and let’s make it at home so we know what we are eating. The kids are eating like us, so they love the veggies as well. I am thankful for that. I am more aware of what goes into my body. I was eating a lot more sugar than I thought. Glad to see it’s not needed. I think that eating is so connected to feelings. It made me realized that from day one we reward kids with food. For example, we go to a soccer match and have ice cream afterward. So from a young age we are connecting food to reward. So as an adult, when things don’t work well, we go to food to get the feeling we had after a soccer game because it’s a safe place. Anyway, it’s affecting my life and also my role as a mother. I don’t want my kids to eat”emotions. I want them to eat well to be strong.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
Alicia knows what she is doing! I am Lucky to have her as my Coach. She was supposed to do it with us, but something health-wise got in the way. So the group went without her, but she was with all of us. We were all PS Coaches except for one person. So we were a very strong group. She made it happen.
