I have tried for a long time to eat healthy and stay in shape, but it’s been a long roller coaster ride of getting on track, then back off again (for a loooong while). Having our son two years ago derailed my plans, while at the same time, it gave me a reason to want to get back in shape and stay on track.
I started my health and fitness journey with Beachbody in August of this year. My husband came to me and said he was ready to do something because his weight was getting out of hand. That’s just what I needed to look for a plan for our whole family! I had tried other challenges in the past, but I was the only one in our house doing it and didn’t feel like I had the support or motivation to keep going on my own. Once Propane Man said he was ready, I knew it was time! (I think men need to think it’s their idea to be on board!)
We found the 21 Day Fix Challenge Group through a friend of mine from high school. I had been watching her Facebook posts over the last year and thinking, “WOW! She looks awesome!”… while I was sitting on the couch with the TV paused. I knew she was the right person to kick our little family into shape!
The challenge group included women and men all over the U.S. in all different backgrounds. Most of them were other moms, trying to get themselves in shape and help their families at the same time. It was so encouraging to see others with the same struggles, pushing each other along and sharing ideas for recipes, meal prep and ideas to “fit it all in”.
In the first week of our challenge, my husband lost TEN POUNDS! I couldn’t believe it. By the end of the month, I had lost 2.5″ in my waist and he had maintained his weight loss. We felt great! I knew I wanted to stick with this new plan and help others in their health and fitness journey.
So my coaching begins… I’m here to help anyone and everyone get (or stay) in shape, eat healthy and maintain some sort of balance in this crazy roller coaster of life. I want to share meal ideas, motivation, workout programs and anything else that will get you looking and feeling your best!
Life is short – let’s life it to its fullest and enjoy every minute!
