“I love Shakeology!!! It is so good for you and it made me feel as though I was taking a proactive step each day towards being healthier!”
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My children are my inspiration. When I looked at my activity level and their activity level, we were on opposite ends of the spectrum. Fortunately a friend had found Beachbody workout programs and Shakeology a few months earlier and encouraged me to give it a try. (Prefacing it with, this isn’t an overnight process.) I knew at this point in my life, I needed a program that was long term…I needed a lifestyle change!
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Prior to starting my Beachbody Challenge in January 2012 I had hit a record (non-pregnant) high for my weight. I hated my body and was extremely self-conscious. I was lethargic, depressed and uncertain of what steps to take to get back on track with my weight and my health. I knew I needed to do something, but I didn’t have the energy or the focus to lay out a plan of attack.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program?
I had always focused on dieting and not on my overall fitness. Interval training similar to the Shredfat inc program helped me to realize that weight loss isn’t the only goal I should have, thus helping me to adhere to the workout schedule. The workout schedule was a great motivator!!!
Why did you choose this particular program?
The programs I chose have been based on my goals at the time, weight loss to strength building to toning, each program has had a major impact on reaching my goals! Top priority though is fun workouts that I enjoy doing!
How has your life changed?
I have become more focused and active. My confidence is higher and I feel healthy, not just “fit”. I love the knowledge I have gained about health and fitness and my ability to share it with others! Plus, I have met a new group of people who share the same goals for a healthier lifestyle!
