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, I was an unhappy, unhealthy person. I always looked at the moms that were out running with their kids and wished I could do that without being out of breath. I had tried the gym, personal trainers, and tried to eat healthy but always failed, got discouraged, and gave up. My self-esteem was at an all-time low. I hid behind my clothes. I hated the way I looked and felt.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I saw an infomercial about 21 Day Fix and decided to take the plunge. I had a gym membership with childcare but with two little ones, one of them was always sick, leaving me no option of taking them. I went two weeks with one of them being sick and not being able to get to the gym and I was done! I decided to give working out at home and using the containers a try, and I’ve never looked back!
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 pushing play. I was scared of failing again. I was scared it wasn’t going to work, I wasn’t going to stick with it, and I’d be unhealthy for the rest of my life. Autumn’s encouragement during each workout was such an inspiration to me and it made me want to continue. Did I stumble? Of course, I’m human, but I never gave up!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I loved that 21 Day Fix is only 30-minute workouts! Trying to fit it in during nap times was crucial to me. And I love those little containers! They have taught me portion control and what food should go in them. I just love 21 Day Fix!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
Where do I begin?! I’m the version of me I’ve wanted to be for a long time. I’m healthy, happy, and ready to conquer life. I’m not scared of failing anymore because this isn’t a “diet” it’s a lifestyle change. I’m proud that I can wear shirts and pants again that I put away a long time ago wishing I could get back to that size. But it isn’t all about size to me, it’s about the change from the inside out!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
The best part is that I’m not done with my program, it’s embedded into my daily life! It’s who I am now, a mom, who takes fitness and nutrition seriously. A woman who decided 11 months ago that I needed to do something for myself and get my life back in control! I’ve noticed that I’m a better wife, a better mom, and a better person all around. And I can’t wait to continue on my journey!
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
I switched to Britney when I became a Coach this spring. She was so encouraging, engaging, and wanted me to be a part of her team. She’s always been there when I’ve had a question and came alongside me in this new chapter of my life.
How did a Beachbody Supplement or 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, digestion/regularity?
I didn’t try Shakeology for awhile because I couldn’t justify the price for something just for me. My husband asked if I wanted to try it, probably 3 months into my journey, and assured me we would find a way to fit it in our budget. Shakeology has been a huge help in my transformation. I noticed a huge difference within the first month of trying it. I was losing more weight, having more stamina throughout the day, and giving up more sweets because I had this in my back pocket.2
