Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started 21 Day Fix in November of last year (2015), I had my third miscarriage. It was very traumatic, and I ate my emotions and gained a lot of wait from September to November.3 I didn’t know what else to do, but I wasn’t happy. I didn’t like who I saw in the mirror and knew something had to change in order for me to find myself again. I did like eight rounds and have been living 21 Day Fix as my regular routine now.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My sister had started 21 Day Fix and asked me to join her. My mom had joined too. When she told me that, I decided we would do it together and get healthy. My mom is one of the most amazing women I have ever met, and she has been such a great support to get up, do the workouts, and follow the 21-day meal plans! My amazing Coach helped me stay motivated, and the support groups were exactly what I needed!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
I am an emotional eater and after my miscarriage, I gained 10 pounds in one month! I knew that would be my biggest challenge. With 21 Day Fix and Shakeology, I didn’t feel like I needed to. I was seeing results and feeling better and healthier! The portion control helped me to not emotionally eat! Shakeology helped me with my sugar cravings.2 I just feel better! I feel stronger. I can’t explain how amazing that feels to know I’m worth it and I can do hard things! That’s why I decided to do 21 Day Fix EXTREME! Since July of 2016, I have been doing EXTREME and I love it! I am also a Beachbody Coach now!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I loved the portion control of 21 Day Fix, and I love the workouts! I never got bored of the workouts. They are a kick in the butt, but I love them! I love the 21 Day Fix EXTREME workouts, because they are extreme and Autumn is great! Leg day every day is ridiculous in the best way! I am seeing results in my trouble areas! Yay!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I have never worked out more than four days a week until now! I now work out seven days a week! I love it! I love getting up and working out and seeing my daughters warm up with me and cheer me on now! I love that I can do 13 regular push-ups now and five dolphins without a break, and I feel stronger! I feel better physically and stronger! I love the confidence I have gained!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I am never finished. Fitness and health aren’t a destination, they’re a journey. This is my joy. Now, healthy eating and my workout routine are my new life! I am happy, and I have no problem keeping up with my four-year-old and two-year-old. I am kinder to myself and to others. I am striving each day to push myself to be better, to accept me for where I am in my journey, and to love me and my family more. My life has changed so much that I can’t imagine my life without Beachbody in it.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
I loved the support that the other ladies in the group gave me! I never felt alone, and it was great hearing their successes and struggles. They wanted me to post pictures after my workout and of healthy meals/snacks.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She was super sweet, helpful, and encouraging. She complimented me on my successes and understood where I have been.
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?
Shakeology is the best! I sleep better and my cravings are cut down. I feel healthier and better, like my mind is more clear and focused.2
