Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I just gave birth to my fourth boy five months before. With my other post-pregnancies, I had done the INSANITY workouts with Shaun T. I was always motivated to get my baby weight off, and was able to get it down to where I was comfortable with it, knowing I’d have another child anyway. This time, I wasn’t motivated and the INSANITY workouts were just a bit too long. I felt lazy with no motivation, little confidence, little self-worth, and weak or not able to have the energy level to make it through the day. I also needed to take better care of my nutrition. I found my Coach, Jenn Wall, and she got my butt in gear with her Challenge Groups doing 21 Day Fix.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I am a mom of four boys, six and under. My weight went up and down with every pregnancy. At my heaviest, I weighed 182 pounds. I did the INSANITY workouts by Beachbody after every birth of my boys. But this time, I needed to be motivated to get started and to be inspired to keep going. At this point, I said I needed to make a huge change in my life. This time, I wanted to do it right by focusing on my nutrition. I decided I had to provide my body with what it needed. When I did that, my body started changing right in front of my eyes. Now, I feel fantastic! I have more confidence, I’m stronger, and I have enough energy to face my busy day and not peter out in the evening. I am eating healthier with correct portions, feeling motivated to work out, and have become more fit while feeling better about my self-worth.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
The greatest challenge I faced was my nutrition. It seriously sucked. I didn’t really care what I ate and what portion size. I also had trouble with being motivated and staying inspired to work out after the 60 days of the hardcore INSANITY workouts. 21 Day Fix EXTREME has helped me control my portions and continue to do the 30-minute workouts, even after the 21 days!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
It was 30 minutes, and the color-coded portion-control containers made it easy and fast to measure food out. The handy nutrition guide helped to know what category the foods go under.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I have lost a total of 15 pounds and 10 inches off my waist. I have gained a ton of muscle, and I feel fantastic with tons of energy!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I am able to make it through the day without being drained in the evening. I am eating better; I don’t crave any junk, because I’m giving my body what it needs. I also love how my family of six is eating more healthy, and I can see a change in their lives too. My confidence level has grown greatly, and I have a ton of energy and strength.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
It was the best experience ever. Jenn Wall kept me motivated and supported me all the way through. She is continuing to help me reach my goals as a new Coach on her team!
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She always posted herself doing the workouts with us. She also contacted us personally to see how things were going. She posted motivational fitness and health quotes, and kept us involved all the way through. She was also quick in her responses to questions.
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?
It stopped me from craving carbs and junk food, and made me full. It has also kept me regular+.
